Lava (Orphan Feral) Adopted

Lava came to me on November 3, 2023, from the Lancaster Animal Shelter. She was about 10 days old, so we will call her birthday October 24, 2023.

The people who found her had been looking for her mom for a couple days, and when they didn’t see her, they dropped off the kitten at the Shelter. We had several hard frosts over the last few days, so it’s pretty amazing the kitten survived. We were thinking Elsa or Olaf from the movie Frozen, but when my husband was playing the Disney song Lava on his guitar, I heard the lyrics –

I have a dream. I hope it will come true
That you’re here with me, and I am here with you.
I wish that the earth, sea, and the sky up above
Will send me someone to lava.

I thought to myself, “That’s what this kitten wants” –

I have a dream I hope will come true,
That you will grow old with me, and I will grow old with you.

We are sure this kitten will find the perfect family to lava and to grow old with.

Update November 20, 2023: Lava was adopted by Rascal’s family. (Rascal was humanely euthanized earlier this month).
