Adoption Event Day!

Another Saturday spent at an adoption event!  The best part of  adoption events is spending it with fun friends that are hopeful and care about the cats as much as I do.   We had 2 adorable kittens adopted - not a huge amount, but the couple that took both kittens were lovely. 

The shocking part of the day is that two orange kittens remained unadopted!  Imagine!  I think this little guy really wanted to go home with this girl with green hair.  Yes, she had green hair!  Hell, if I were 30 years younger, my hair might be green too.  (Although I think that happened once when I tried to colour my own hair...but I digress)

I've decided that nobody should ever let me plan these adoption events again. The kittens that I chose for the event today were ALL BOYS (except for 1 little girl) Sheesh...Tell me where to show up and I'll advertise it and be there.

We did turn down one adopter today.  It was an adult mother and daughter team.  I think they wanted a cat, but they didn't want a cat to ACT like a cat.  They asked questions like,  "Does he meow a lot?"  or "Does he shed?"  or "My Mother has storage cardboard boxes - will the cat scratch the boxes? We don't want them damaged."  Arggghh.....get a goldfish.

At our Petsmart location, we had FIVE adoptions - all without me.  Looks like my little rescue is doing great and I'm so proud of all we do.

I came home to a cute moment from my own cat Parker and my foster cat Max.  I don't know how they got into this little junky area next to our desks, but they decided it was a good place for a little tabby lovefest.  (Max is the one biting Parker's neck...bad boy.)

David comes home tomorrow! I think I'm far more relaxed tonight because he's not here and I can just collapse in a sweaty, tired heap.

Sweaty and tired....but very happy. :)
