If you've befriended me on Facebook, you already know that I fell down my staircase this morning and broke my tailbone and sprained my back. Nothing makes you feel more vulnerable than falling down the stairs. Until today, I hadn't had the wind knocked out of me since I was 5 years old. Crap, that's SO scary! I can't even blame the mishap on tripping over cats. It was just clumsy ol' me in my barefeet and robe.
Maybe this means I'm off "litterbox duty" for a while!
We recently featured a Bengal X for adoption named "Arthur". Nothing brings out the adoption calls more than putting up a semi-purebred cat on the site. It gave me an opportunity to screen multiple people in one day for the same cat. I only found 2 adopters that I felt were "Arthur worthy". Anyhoooo...the large number of potential adopters had me thinking about some of the questions people asked over the past few days when being interviewed to adopt Arthur.
1. Does he scratch the furniture? "That's a tough question. Yes, he'll scratch the furniture unless you provide a scratching post and teach him to use it!!"
2. Will he wake me up in the morning? "Is this REALLY a problem?"
3. Does he shed? "Lord, how I *hate* that question!"
4. Can I teach him to not jump up on my couch? "REALLY???????"
Ahhh...I should know better than to post stuff like this. I really open myself up for criticism.
The weekend is here and the adoption line is starting to ring this afternoon. I'm hopeful for a good adoption weekend! I get the feeling there are quite a few folks that are waiting for official kitten season before they adopt. I'm not getting as many calls on my little older kittens as I think I should be.
To end today's post, I'm sure you'll appreciate the following picture of me laid out on the couch with my ancient cat "Pella" perched on my chest: (NO...I did NOT take the picture!)
