(The Best!) Newsy Monday
Sounds silly to say, but I think the best part about this distinction is that I did ALL the paperwork myself! Last time, I did this for a rescue, I had a pro bono attorney draw up the papers. I feel so...um....smart!
My trip to Quebec City was wonderful and gratefully, I didn't run into any homeless cats. The rescue ran beautifully thanks to Connie who volunteered to man the phones and email while I was away. In fact, we had THREE adoptions this weekend and I wasn't even here!
I'm happy to report that Mike is being rescued as I type this blog post! He's on his way to the vet to be neutered, and given the royal treatment until he can be placed into a foster home. It'll be interesting to see how this progresses..
I went to the shelter today and rescued one sweet little girl. I named her "Penny" and she's probably about 5 months old. I have available foster space for more cats, but can't seem to find the right matches for people. I can't place "just any cat" into "just any foster home". They have to work in the home.
What would a shelter visit be without one (or two...or three...or...) cat that really pulls on my heart strings. "Willow" is that cat:
Surely there must be SOMEBODY that can give this little siamese lady a retirement home. She has the bluest eyes and a sweet little personality. You can tell that somebody really loved her. It breaks my heart that her owner died and somebody dumped her. I'm posting this, because I know Siamese-people never have just one Siamese cat and I'm hoping that somebody will tell a friend.
I'm meeting an adopter and a foster Mom at the shelter tomorrow, so hopefully more cats will get out. I've been taking pictures for Kim at the shelter while she's on her honeymoon, but Petfinder isn't being very cooperative. At least it gives me a chance to get to know the cats as they come in.
I just signed up another new foster Mom, and am so happy to continue to grow a bit more. I realized as I was printintg my foster home list I really enjoy EVERYBODY that I'm working with - how many people can say that?
Wow...this really was a "Newsy Monday"! What'll I write about tomorrow? (Maybe Willow the siamese' rescue!?)
