    I have been wanting to post all morning and share my wonderful news... I just haven't been quite sure how.
    Maybe that sounds strange - I mean how hard is it to say, "Yay! we're getting a beautiful new cat!" ?
    But any of you who have been through losing a cat you adore, probably understands what I'm saying -- how it feels slightly uncomfortable to be feeling so happy and hopeful.
    But I know that Doodle would be very happy as well... and I want very much to share this with you all.

    Meet our new Angel :)


    We're adopting her from DCIN who posted an urgent request for her yesterday.
    My husband just left this morning to go and pick her up. :)

    It's an interesting story. (at least I think so)

    When Doodle died in April I was devastated.
    I don't believe in supernatural things - angels... destiny...fate.. etc... It's partly why I felt so destroyed... and so alone.
    But one night, (quite a while ago)? I was crying and telling Doodle that I couldn't feel him near - that I wanted to... but that I couldn't. And I asked him to send me a sign - an angel - and then I would know. I actually felt silly doing it - but I was so distraught I didn't really care.
    Angels picture was the first thing I saw the next morning. (DCIN had posted her picture once before)
    I've tried to rationalize that away - but no matter how successful I may have been at telling myself it was just a coincidence... when I saw her again , I knew we needed each other.

    Of course for those of you who do believe in things like fate - and angels :) - you are probably giggling at me and my stubbornness :)
    But I'll tell you a little secret,(if you promise not to tell anyone) I have properly thanked my Doodle - just in case ;)

    I can not tell you enough how happy I am for Angel, she is about to start the best part of her life with the most adoring family. I can't think of better beans to love this girl and I know that Doodle is up there right now happy that he was able to get his message to you, and boy, when he sends a message, it sure is loud and clear.

    He always was special in so many ways.

    Many hugs to all of you.

    That Doodle...busy, busy, busy...just waiting for you to ask him for a sign! Angel is so beautiful. I'm glad she is going to share her life with you and your family. When will your hubby bring her to you? It must be about a 13 hour trip one way. And to drive all that way to get a kitty just for you...the man is a gem, a keeper, a one-in-a-million!!! :thumbup

    Many happy days ahead. I'm sure Doodle is glad to see a smile on your face...again.

    Congratulations! I'm sure Doodlebutt is sitting there at the bridge wondering how many signs do I have to give this silly bean so she gets the message!

    Well, glad it was heard loud and clear and Angel will have a new home and you get someone new to know and love.

    Yes, we do get signs we don't see sometimes. Doodle was right on top of this.

    Best of luck with Angel and give that man who is willing to drive so far a big, big thank you.

    :::Grinning like a Cheshire cat here::::::

    I was wondering how long it was going to take you to getting around to that announcement over here, but then again I accidentally stumbled into the whole conversation on FB the other morning.

    Nice work Doodlebutt on getting your mom to listen finally, and not only sending her the Angel as requested but in giving another extra sweet kitty a terrific new momma bean and a daddy who will go to great lengths to see her smile. (That man is a keeper for sure).

    And of course you know we are going to want........PICTURES!!!!! When she gets to her new home and wonderful family.

    Our GAs have been busy this month sending out living, breathing angel in fur coats. As we have an Angel on her way to our house soon as well, we just changed her name to Musette, since we already have an Angel

    Thanks you guys! It does seems to be a pretty loud and clear sign doesn't it. :lol:

    I'm really looking forward to getting Angel home and I'm hoping that she won't be too difficult to treat - I was very spoiled with how easy Doodle was in regards to getting a shot or being tested - he never fought me at all. But my DH of course will help if it's necessary - so we'll be fine.

    Speaking of my DH, yes, he's a great guy :) and it's quite a drive - 16 hours each way.
    And although it would be very sweet if he were doing it for me... I'm actually even more happy that he's doing it as much for himself -and Angel. He never hesitated when I sent him a link to the story yesterday morning. His first response was that he could be on the road the next day. He was as disturbed at the idea of her not being treated as much as I was.

    So I have a few days to get a Spreadsheet started I suppose -- wish us luck :)

    I'm so happy for you!!! Way to go Doodle, so glad you sent an Angel to Michelle.

    I was thinking, I bet she believes in Angel's now. Her name caught me right away, let alone that her beautiful white fur. Coincidence maybe, but doubtful.

    I am so happy for you and Angel. Doodle would be happy also. I am waiting for a sign that Maverick is with me in spirit. A feeling. I know it will come and I need to keep my heart open for it.

    I do hope you keep us updated on your new girl. Hugs.

    I am SO happy for you and your entire family.

    Cats can have a lot to tell us. We just have to be perceptive enough to listen. I'm glad you were listening and that your heart was ready to be open for (another) Angel.

    Congrats! Purrs in the house are wonderful to come home to.

    This is wonderful news. After a couple of major losses this past year, I began to believe in fate and destiny. Too many things happened before and after that were otherwise impossible to explain. This whole thing has Doodles paws all over it :D How else could Angel have found you from halfway across the country?!? Sometimes things are just meant to be, and that beautiful girl finding you is one of them.

    Good luck. I understand how difficult the loss of Doodle must have been, and I hope that rescuing and caring for Angel brings some peace.

    Okay... Okay.... crying also. I read Angels story... then a quick... she has found a home... wow... And the perfect home.

    When coincidence is named.... there is God.

    I'm thinking Doodles pulled strings to get you the perfect purrrrrrsson to love you and be loved by you...

    Rainbow bridge will be so joyous once she is snuggled in her mommy's arms... not that daddy's arms aren't strong and loving also... Good Job all the way round. Bless you all with many many years of love together.

    So I'm sure glad you properly thanked the "doodle butt" because she is absolutely gorgeous. Look at that face - and she needed you - and you needed her - and now Doodle can run and play with all the other "free kitties" knowing that you have love with you again.

    Congratulations - she is absolutely beautiful - okay -now more pictures, okay? And good for you for taking her and loving her.
