Friday Wrap Up

I hadn't planned on going to the shelter today until a foster Mom called me and said she wanted to rescue a few kittens.  She had never been to the shelter before, so I knew I had better go.   I went to my Weight Watchers weigh-in and headed down the highway....

Not only did she leave with 3 four week old kittens, *I* left with 3 kittens too and a homely little tabby named "Chelsea" that had been at the shelter for 2 months in oven-like conditions:

 Everybody is in my washroom right now, and I'm too exhausted to deal with the usual hissing and hiding from Chelsea and diarrhea from the kittens.  It probably looks like a war zone in there and I just don't care.

Tomorrow is our adoption event and I'm going to keep a positive attitude despite the fact that the local humane society is practically giving away kittens.  I have to remember that they ALL NEED HOMES.  Not just my cats - but all of them. 

My adoption line has been ringing, so no complaints there.  In fact, I just received an email from a foster Mom that tells me BOTH of her adult cat fosters were adopted this afternoon by a wonderful family I screened yesterday!!!  Actually....we had FOUR adoptions today, and I have adopters lined up to meet cats tomorrow at foster homes.  So if the adoption event isn't overly successful, I won't complain much.  It's always nice to hang out with the volunteers. 

I'm sure David is looking forward to me being out of the house tomorrow.  He usually goes on some online Bridge thingy for a "Bridge Geek Fest" with friends.  I usually complain when I'm around, but since I'm gone he can engage in a Geek-a-rama in his bathrobe all day for all I care.

Besides.  I have to sneak in Chelsea like she's already been here for months.  So play on, sweetie!  Play on!

Aw, look at little Chelsea. I bet with a bit of TLC she won't be "homely" at all.

Good luck with the adopt-a-thon. Difficult to compete with almost "giving away" kittens, but what will be will be. And I think I'd rather pay a higher adoption price and truly know the kittens/cats were well cared for in foster homes. You're likely are healthier and better socialized. Well, certainly compared to our own shelter, where the cats are all in tiny individual cages with no windows, no fresh air and no socialization.

I don't see homely just some beautiful green eyes. Good luck tomorrow and if I was closer I'd care for those ones in your bathroom free of charge. Here's to many adoptions. Deb=^..^=x4
