Please forgive the delay in posting this! I came home to find my internet turned off due to some "trojan worm" or some kind of icky sounding thing. The provider said it was nasty and I'm just now getting back online. Part of me was relieved that I wasn't chained to emails today, and another part of me was pacing like a lion in a cage until I was back online. Thank God there was nothing life-urgent with the cats that I needed to respond to in the interim.
I'm SO happy to report that "Dale" has been rescued today. I saw the little guy while I was working with an adopter today and he looked awful. His face was cut open in several places and swollen. Thank heavens he was rescued. I'm so grateful.
I spent 3 hours at the shelter today working with one adopter and her darling 3 year old little boy. Part of my job is to find the right match for this family, but the other part is to insure that they don't get overwhelmed. Despite my best efforts, she became overwhelmed and it became an agonizing choice for them. (Thus the 3 hours!) They finally decided on "Marv":
Thought you might a completely delightful before and after picture:
Hardly looks like the same boy!!!! Doesn't he look happy in his Daddy's arms? He hadn't met Ernest until after the adoption. Looks like they're BOTH pretty happy, eh? :)
I'm terrified that the internet is going to shut down again before I can push PUBLISH on the blog post. I think I have the problem handled, but it's left me feeling uneasy.
Tomorrow, I'm meeting a really nice sounding young lady at the shelter who is interested in adopting TWO cats! I think I have JUST the cats..... (wahoo!)
