Bittersweet coincidence

2 weeks ago I had to have my beautiful white cat put to sleep. I was absolutely broken and everyone on here was so so lovely. Despite saying I wouldn't have another cat (and certainly not a kitten) I ended up at my local RSPCA rehoming centre this morning... and against all the odds have ended up bringing home the scrappiest, scrawniest little white kitten. When I got her home and out of her carrier, I burst into tears when I realised in the middle of her head, she has a splodge of black hairs, exactly the same as my beautiful Willow did when I first got her.
She's not a replacement for Willow, she can never be replaced, but I kind of feel like it's a sign I was meant to have this particular kitten.
Completely pointless post, and sorry for rambling!

Some things are just meant to be. But we need kitten pictures when you feel up to it!

flowersOf course Willow will never be replaced. However I feel that she's sent this precious little kitten as a way to slowly begin to heal your heart.

Oh how lovely, it's definitely a sign that this kitten was meant for you and you for her. Congratulations! Would love to see photos

Thats a great name , when my mum got her Ragdoll kitten 15 years ago that is what my DS named him , he just gets called snowby or snowy . Will check back later for the pics .

Not a pointless post at all. I love posts like this. I be always felt like my cats were fate and it was meant to be and it just makes them even more special. And I'm sure your new addition will do the same. You will always remember Willow every time you look at Snowball though she'll never replace her. Looking forward to pics!

Not pointless at all. smile

I look forward to the pictures.

Literally the scrawniest little bundle of fur I think I've ever seen. Lots of love and cuddles and some good food and hopefully she'll blossom just as much as my beautiful Willow did

Brontebiscuits Fri 25-Nov-16 20:37:56

little love. you were meant to have her!

Alex83 Fri 25-Nov-16 20:39:05

Oh bless her!! So gorgeous

Weedsnseeds1 Fri 25-Nov-16 20:43:37

What a sweetheart. Do you know how old she is? Definitely fate!

Awwlookatmybabyspider Fri 25-Nov-16 20:51:38

Congratulations on your furbaby. She's amazing. How's she settling

Littlemissindependent Fri 25-Nov-16 21:00:51

Weeds they said she's 12 weeks but I'm a little (very) dubious about that! Very surprised to discover she's already been spayed.
Spider she's a little nervous, but she's eaten and is now ensconced in her bed with a blanket. Know it will take a while for her to adjust so just lots of patience and cuddles for her until she settles in

Toddlerteaplease Fri 25-Nov-16 21:11:34

She's lovely. White cats are wonderful. But putting sun cream on his ears in summer was a nightmare!

She's lovely. smile

She has a look to her face, though. (And a tilt to her head, even though she's new and scared.) I reckon she'll be a handful. grin

Bless she is a teeny tiny little thing. It was obviously meant to be. I hope she settles in well-photo updates required when possible.

Congratulations OP. Your post has made me cry again, although I've been crying all day - I lost my beloved cat suddenly on Wednesday.

Of course Snowbell won't replace Willow but ok sure she'll help your broken heart to heal x

FantasticRik Fri 25-Nov-16 21:30:59

My beautiful Jerry was also a white cat. They are the best ❤️

Littlemissindependent Fri 25-Nov-16 21:32:24

Argh, you're all so nice, you've made me cry again! flowers for all of you!!

Sparklingbrook Fri 25-Nov-16 21:46:12

Aww she's lovely. Snowball is an excellent name. smile

I lost my beautiful cat at only a year old and I said there was no way I would have another for a v long time, I couldn't bear the heartbreak.

I lasted a few weeks, and then just had a little look and Sparklingcat came up for adoption. She had been given up as her owner had had a baby and didn't want her any more. sad

cozietoesie Fri 25-Nov-16 21:49:36

And so the match made in heaven came about. smile
