An Update on Shannon and Mr. C

I could hardly wait to follow up with the vet clinic staff on how Shannon and Mr. C did on their first night together. I waited impatiently listening to a recorded message about "Heartworm Season" that the vet clinic had playing for customers on hold. Then "D" picked up the phone...

Apparently, Shannon woke up Mr. C this morning doing that "up-down-up-down-thing" with her paws on his chest. Then she licked his face!  "D" said that he sounded happy and very "busy"...so much to do for Shannon!  It sounds like Shannon and Mr. C were meant to be together.  He had a purpose and a reason to get up this morning.  Nobody will really know how serious Mr. C was about not wanting to live after Fritz was gone, but the veterinary staff were certain he was serious. 

I found a picture of Shannon from the shelter's website:

It's hard to believe nobody wanted her.  But she'll never be unwanted again, thanks to an awesome veterinary office and Mr. C.

The rescue's phone has been ringing quite a bit today.  I guess that's what happens when you put a bunch of fluffy dilute calico kittens on the site.  I wish people could see the not-so-fancy kittens and want to adopt them as desperately.  I even had a call from MICHIGAN to adopt this little girl:

If I get one more call from a teenybopper wanting to adopt her, I'm going to scream!  :) Holy crap, that's quite an "old gal" thing to say, isn't it?

Awww...hell....I think I just need to end this Friday post thinking about Shannon and Mr. C.  That story has enough good vibes in it to get me through the weekend. 

Happy Friday :)

What a gorgeous cat Shannon is! I'm thrilled to hear that Mr C and Shannon have already hit it off. Sounds like they are destined for a happy, loving future together. It must feel great to know you're a successful matchmaker (of the kitty-human variety)! Kudos to that vet clinic for going beyond their expertise at saving animals by saving a person, too. A lovely end to a story that started out so sadly.

awwwww - how sweet. I don't doubt that Shannon knows just how much she is needed and loved. She was just waiting for the right man to come into her life.

I have to agree about kittens - I want to ask "you do know this is going to grow up, right?"

Shannon IS gorgeous, thanks for the update on them both.

I understand how close he was to suicide, trust me on that one. So glad they have each other!

I just found your lovely blog. What a wonderful story about Shannon and Mr. C.. Cats are very responsive to emotions in humans, and it sounds as though Shannon went right to work using her wonderful "cat medicine"on Mr. C.. Lucky cat, lucky man!

I adore the story about Shannon and Mr. C. Bless his heart, caring for animals as deeply as we all do can be a painful thing, but it is also truly special. I adore Shannon's white toes!!!

Someone should contact the newspaper. This would make a fantastic story.

Shannon is so pretty, it looks like the photo was photoshoped because of her shorthair tabby head on the fluffy body!
