Our big Adoption Blitz was a huge success. Something I've never experienced before - 41 (yes, FORTY ONE) adoptions in a 6 hour time period. Adopters were actually lined up out the door to take turns meeting the cats in our small adoption area. Some had printed out cats they had hoped would be there and others just wanted "any sweet cat".
Hard to believe I'm actually typing this, but....we adopted out EVERY cat that we brought that day! Not one cat was left!! I had two families FIGHTING over a 12 week old BLACK kitten! Holy crap!
Adoption screening was easier than I thought it would be. I turned down a BUNCH of impulse adopters. The rush of people took us all by surprise and the LACK of phone calls after the event tells me that we made some great decisions for our cats.
With 41 adoptions means more rescues, so we headed out to the shelter yesterday and rescued nearly 30 cats and kittens. Vet visits and assessments have left us exhausted and exhilarated. We're trying to get everybody spayed/neutered etc before we go into Petsmart for the month of August.
Last night I had an emergency call from one of our foster parents. Apparently, some
The first of Facebook messages came in from the foster Mom:
"Momma and babies are in their new abode. Momma is a sweetheart. She lay down beside me, let me pet her and purred her heart out...."
And this morning:
"Everyone is fine. They are the happiest bunch ever. This morning, when I opened the door, momma sang me a good morning song and she and all of the kittens ran over to me.
They are all love-muffins. Everyone is eating, everyone is drinking, everyone is using the litter box and the kittens rough-house all the time.
I don't think I have had a more delightful group.
I want to keep them all."
My heart is full and happy this morning. I wish every rescue day could be like the past 3 days!
