It's very unlike me to not update my blog until now. You know I must be sick, exhausted, and swamped to let it go a little too long without writing. The truth is, I'm sick, exhausted, swamped AND I haven't had much to report or write about lately. I'm beginning to sound like a habitual whiner with tales of my housing woes, etc. :)
Adoptions have picked up this week and I'm heading out towards Guelph this to pick up a couple of kittens to put into Petsmart. It's our turn for August. Setting up in Petsmart is never fun, but it does give our cats some new opportunities to be adopted. I sure hate to add an additional responsibility this month to my list of tasks - emotional and physical.
I've been giving some thought to ending my blog, but don't want to do anything while I'm so tired and emotional. I might end up being sorry. But I have to wonder: I've been writing this for 4 and a half years! What else can I say that hasn't been said?
We received a call from the "low-kill" shelter that said they would be forced to euthanize a big (otherwise) sweet cat that HATES other cats. This guy doesn't just hiss or growl...he goes on full attack. Can we help by 5 pm today? I put out an urgent plea for an "only cat" home. Those type of foster homes are like GOLD. I was more than a little shocked when a lovely young woman came forward and agreed to take him for 30 days and assess him. Her boyfriend is allergic but even he was willing to stay on meds for 30 days.
So now the pressure is on to find this guy a home in 30 days during the slowest time of the year. He's 6 years old and declawed. He's been INSANELY SWEET SWEET SWEET with his foster Mom so he's fine as an only cat:
It's time for me to shower-up and get things moving and grooving for the day. I definitely could use some motivation and adoption excitement. Maybe our big grey boy will find a home today! :)
