Off to see the world
THANK you SO much for your great response and for your warming donations/purchases of cards. For the moment being I will leave the cards for sale on Etsy and eventually renew the listings with new images. Each and every purchase/donation is hugely appreciated.
Now I would like to update you on the story of Ellie, the orphaned 10 day old baby kitten I found 6 weeks ago. Thanks to our great vet I have got this short but very tangible video of what she looked like when I had just brought her to the vet. She was found during days torrential rain and very cold temperatures - and I kid you not when I say that she felt like something that had been pulled out of the freezer for defrosting. The poor thing had probably never opened her eyes but the chock and comotion of this ordeal made her open her eyes. What a way to say hello to the world. Just have a look at this brief video - she couldn't walk either. It's questionable whether she would have lasted even an hour. Luckily after being rubbed dry and put on a hot water bottle at the vet she quickly regained her body temperature and stabilized.
Well, the weeks has passed by very quickly and she has grown into a most beautiful little kitten (yes, I know... they all are) but she truly is adorable.
Last weekend, when we finally had some beautiful sunshine and mild temperatures again, she was allowed a journey into the great big world.
Everything was scrutinised with such an itensity - here she is falling in love with the scent of the lavender bush. It's the most engaging and magical live theatre you could imagine - like you become a child again just watching her.
The bigger guys already loves her - it's obvious this bitty size couldn't be a threat to anyone and they adore playing with her. Now she just needs to grow a bit bigger before she can be a fully fledged explorer!
