I was looking at our "adopted" spreadsheet and realized that the last 3 cats that were adopted were black and white!! Is that possible? Seriously - in August, I reduced the adoption fee by 20% on all black or black and white cats and not ONE was adopted. Suddenly, three get adopted.
Don't get me wrong - I'm THRILLED when any of our cats are adopted! But the black and white cats are often left behind with the black ones. I have to wonder if there's a popular commercial or t.v. programme that features a black and white cat on right now.
Thanks to a toiletpaper ad, everybody wanted a white, fluffy kitten for a while.
I put a probable Maine Coon kitten on our website for adoption late last night. I went to the grocery store this morning, and came home to EIGHT phone calls about the same kitten! Holy crap....we have so many cute kittens! Ask me about somebody else for cryin' out loud!
Two nights ago, I put "Noah" (Norwegian Forest Cat) on our website for adoption and I thought the phone would be ringing off the hook....but not one call:
The highlight of my weekend was having an adopter call for "Diana":
Just when I think I have people figured out....I realized that I don't have anybody figured out at all!
But then again, *I'm* the one thinking about taking "The Sherminator" off the adoption page.. :)
