Lily & Miles

by Bonnie Best

Let’s start my new blog off right by introducing our client(s) of the month, two little miracles, Miles and Lily Michelizzi, and their proud owner Monica! 

Miles and Lily are perfect examples of what happens when a caring person opens their heart and home to unwanted animals.   Both kittens were abandoned and then rescued by Monica, who with her patience and love, have both overcome their fears and health issues, and now thrive in their new home.  They’re even getting used to their pet sitter!

Monica has been a client for many years and her home is one of those, that as a pet sitter, you feel more a part of the family than just “hired help.”  Her original kittens, Mr. Madeleine and Penelope, were such a part of my life, that everyone in my family knew them by name, and remembers their little idiosyncrasies.  Especially the very “purr-snickety” Penelope!  Unfortunately, with all of our pets, they cross the rainbow bridge far too soon, and such was the case for Mr. Madeleine and Penelope.  After time, though, other little 4 legged balls of fur and love, will find their way into our hearts, whether we think it is time or not.  This is exactly what happened to Monica, Miles and Lily found her!  I’m not sure who is better for whom, Monica for rescuing Miles and Lily, or Lily and Miles finding Monica. I do know that our memories stay fond, and our love continues to be shared with new pets.  I believe we comfort each other, and without our pets, our lives would not be complete.

2011, for these two, will be a busy one keeping Monica entertained and the pet sitter, me, learning their new kitty rules! We are looking forward to many more years of kitty delight at the Michelizzi home!
