I had the priviledge of meeting a really wonderful man at the shelter today. He and his wife wanted to adopt an orange and white cat. When I arrived at the shelter (post-speeding ticket) I was disheartened to see a very sneezy, snotty Timmie in his cage. I was certain that Dave would not want to adopt this sweet orange and white tom cat. But Timmie purred in his arms and it was a done deal - Timmie went home with Dave!
I was a little worried that Dave's wife Pam (who had to work this morning) would be really mad at him for bringing home a sick cat. (Timmie isn't desperately ill - he just has a nasty cold.) Timmie is sneezing, unneutered and stinky. Dave: You're my hero.
They sent me some pictures of Timmie tonight. Of course, they made me cry. Nobody would argue that this is one very, happy, grateful cat - and I'm a happy, grateful rescuer :)
As for me....I have a new foster cat too. I can't figure out what to name this guy! He's 6 months old and ridiculously cute:
I hope he stays well. He was in quarantine for biting his finder, (bad boy!) So he was never with the group who had Distemper or URI. I'll post some "after shelter" pictures soon. He seems to be a rowdy little guy!
I wish the Obama kids weren't allergic to cats. I'd recommend this guy. I bet he'd look good in the White House.
