The Kitten who Saved Sir Hubble Pinkerton’s Life — 19 Comments

  1. Jo, I had a very similar experience after the death of my beloved Peaches when, three months later, Kittibits came into my life. I wrote about it as a short story but also related the true part to David Michie, author of The Dalai Lama’s Cat books, offering it as research for an upcoming book he’s planning. Okay if I forward the link to your blog to him too?

  2. This is such a sweet story – brings tears of joy to my eyes to read this. {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}} for all the boys – {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}} for you and marty

  3. Absolutely precious photos of precious cats, Jo! Whatever the mysterious solution to this puzzle might be, I’m sure you agree that each and every one of your sweet furmily is unique, treasured, and wonderful!

  4. I am so happy that Aki found you and especially Sir Hubble. It is a proven fact that animals grieve over the loss of close companions. When one of my horses had to be admitted to the equine hospital, there was a mare there with her young foal. The foal had internal abnormalities and was not going to improve,and would cause him major health problems later. The decision was made to euthanize him. They did this in the presence of the mare. They explained that by doing this it helped the mare to understand, not just have her foal disappear. Like the mare Hubble had to have time to adjust to the loss as do all of us that lose something or someone very close to us. I do believe Aki was heaven sent to soothe the grief. Hubble is very lucky that Aki found him.

    • Vicki, what a touching story! I think the equine vets were very right in the way they euthanized the foal. We thought about bringing Sir Hubble with us when his brother was euthanized but we decided not to. I think it would have helped Sir Hubble to understand more- and not search for all those many weeks for his “lost” companion.

  5. Love EAP. He brought a home to life as so many kits do.
    Perhaps, Hubble is too adult to appreciate. But, bringing in Aki was just the right mix for the both of them.
    Good job, Jo.

  6. It’s beautiful, brings tears of joy and yes, some sadness too, our babies are a miracle to us and to their feline families. Aki is a true blessing for Sir Hubble and I do hope the three have some bonding time. EAP is beautiful too.

  7. Are you a believer in reincarnation?
    No doubt in my mind that Aki is Puppy.
    Perfect timing.

    I’ve had similar experiences.

  8. Amid the speculation that we humans often engage in, we are sometimes privileged to witness what appears to be a miracle of sorts, which is really something that’s just beyond the limits of our conscious awareness. Sometimes, the end does justify the means!

    I’m so happy to know about this new, unexplainable joy in your lives….especially Sir Hubble. Seeing a happy cat is one of life’s highest pleasures, while the opposite is one of life’s most difficult and saddest.

    I celebrate their friendship, and the kitten who brought them together. Wishing them and you many wonderful memories!

  9. Perhaps Hush Puppy whispered in Aki’s ear on his way to the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes I feel that is why my current kitty is so comforting to me. 🙂

  10. Aki is a very handsome boy and these are really nice photos Jo. Well done. It is so lovely see them snuggling up together. So important for Hubble.

    It is a lovely story. The friendship and their relationship has worked out so well. It doesn’t always work like that but so nice to see that it has.

    Thanks for sharing this Jo.
