|Happy Valentine's Day!|
Today was a busy day! I had a meeting at an Animal Services location and drove to a different shelter to do a rescue. My intent was to pick up a very cute orange and white guy for a new foster Mom. It's funny how things don't always work out the way we think they should.
The new foster Mom is a lively 86 year old lady that really wanted to foster an orange and white cat from the shelter. She was quite specific. :) I felt awful when I got to the shelter and found the orange and white guy I intended to rescue was very very nippy.
The staff directed me to a fat 4 year old grey girl who had been at the shelter since October. She was depressed and VERY loving. Her chubby little body had dandruff from stress and dry skin. She needed love and lots of it.
She was PERFECT for this senior lady!!
As I drove a very distressed "Tabitha" to her new foster Mom, I prayed silently she wouldn't poop, pee or barf in her carrier.... When we arrived, "Tabitha" confidently trotted around the apartment and obediently flopped at her foster Mom's feet for belly rubs. My heart was full and happy. But would she like the chubby grey girl?
I carefully thanked her for saving Tabitha as she gently pat the cat's chubby belly. She looked up at me with tears in her eyes and said, "I think we saved each other".
I think so too. :)
Happy Valentines' Day
