For those of you who have been following our story around here on Mila the Miracle Kitty (click here for the original post), we have good news. Mila has been adopted by a wonderful family here in LA! Her new forever home includes a human mom and dad, and older and younger kitty siblings.
Here’s the beautiful irony: As you will recall, we met Mila at the shelter as basically just another “nuisance feral,” teetering on the verge of death; another disposal kitty who was destined to die anonymously on the street. But once she healed up and the Militant went to work on finding her a home – which included appearances at live adoptions, postings at petfinder.com and her very own YouTube video – this little kitty became one of the most “in demand” companion animals that the Militant has ever tried to place. (And we’re talking many dozens of cats and dogs through the years, friends…)
The e-mails were pouring in for Mila almost faster than the Militant could keep up with them. And even with the rigid adoption criteria (courtesy of both the Militant and our rescue partners, Kitten Rescue) there were many worthy candidates who expressed interest in, and even formally applied for, Mila. Still, the Militant feels like the full circle of destiny has been completed with the exact family that was chosen for Mila. We’re all thrilled.
More good news: I wanted to mention that one of Mila’s best pals and fellow fosters, Teddy (pictured above with Mila), also found a fantastic home this week. The Militant “ran across” Teddy during a routine TNR (trap, neuter, return) operation near her home. Although technically feral, Teddy had gotten used to the humans who had been feeding him all his life. This, combined with his exceedingly sweet and gentle demeanor, made him an excellent candidate for “relocation” to a proper forever home. Sure enough, the Militant was able to find him an excellent family, as well.
It’s all good, people…
