Pella knew something was up. Who wakes up a sleeping cat if they can help it? As soon as Pella saw the cat crate she started gagging and barfed all down the front of me.
I guess when you've had ALL of your teeth removed, the vet isn't a source of great comfort. Poor little girl.
I wanted to make sure that I thank those of you who took the time to write me via email or comments over my last post. Let me assure you that everything is OK and the rescue is still a great place to volunteer - that's why I'm STILL volunteering by fostering little Boris. Your thoughts meant the world to me. Really and truly :)
I've had a few people interested in adopting cats directly from the shelter over the past few days. (yay!) I always have a list of questions to ask potential adopters. I don't make it easy on folks who want to adopt because there is no adoption fee and I need assurance that they have the funds to spay or neuter the cat. Because they're adopting from the shelter and not from the rescue, there is no quarantine period and no in-home assessment as to their personality. I need to know that the cat will NEVER end up back at the shelter again.
So that brings me to "Dawn" who wanted to adopt "a baby kitten". She's never had a kitten before, so I suggested fostering *first*. "No." She didn't want to foster. She wanted her own little bundle of joy, because.....she moved here from Calgary and had to give away her puppy before she moved! But he went to a "really cool farm where he could play and stuff."
Oh. My Gosh. Stupid, ignorant people. *argh* She won't be adopting from me.
I'm really hoping this other woman calls me back about adopting "Jazz" from the shelter. Kim tells me she's VERY sweet:
We've exchanged a bunch of emails about Jazz, but I need to actually speak with her if she is to adopt this little girl.
Sooooooooooooo.....*yawn*....that's it for my Wednesday. I bought an ugly lamp at Home Sense, I've taken a nap and have fantasized about throwing cat barf on the neighbour's car.
I wonder what excitement Thursday will hold for me? (*wink*)
