Of course, an adoption wouldn't be complete without a bit of drama. Doug made quite a fuss getting into his carrier. I hate when that happens. I want him to understand that he's going into a WONDERFUL home that has a 7 year old little girl that is going to love him. There's also another cat named "Buddy" that desperately wants a friend to play with him.
But nooooooooo....Doug had to make me feel guilty by scratching at the carrier and begging to get out. I could feel my eyes start to burn with tears, but there was no doubt that I was doing the right thing for Doug.
For those of you who foster ANY companion animal; never underestimate how brave you are! It takes courage to let them go, and courage to bring in a new foster knowing that you might be hurt when they leave.
The adopter took my email address and promised pictures of Doug with his new brother (partner-in-crime) "Buddy". I hope he remembers, because I care. I always will.
Have a beautiful life, Doug. :)
