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:
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:
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 :)
