I chose to not give her a name. She's only here until her appointment with the spay doctor Tuesday morning, and will be available for adoption at the Humane Society on Wednesday. Don't expect to find her there on Thursday.
She has leetle rounded ears.
While I have your attention, I must fill you in on Sonny's adoption tale.
He had his neuter surgery on a Wednesday, and was made available for adoption the following day. The shelter opens at 11:00 on Thursdays and he was literally out the door by noon.
It was by sheer luck that I was able to meet his mom. I was working that day and a cattery staff member mentioned to me that Sonny had an interested party. I dashed out to the lobby hoping to meet her and was so glad I did!
Micki was all smiles in love with the boy and surely didn't need my effusive input about what a dear he is. I slipped her one of my cards and asked that she please let me know how he did in his new home.
She was so kind. Here is what she sent:
I have to tell you what you already know, he is such an absolute love bug and his new papa and I are totally in love with him and it started the first few minutes I first saw him!!
He sleeps with us and his papa and him have woke me up both nights now playing on the bed, in the middle of the night with him purring like crazy! We are keeping his name as is, it fits him!
It's kind of funny or cool but we've been looking for a kitten since before Christmas, looking at the shelter a couple of times and answering Craig's list ads and not having any luck. We got 4 or 5 answers back but then wouldn't get a return answer when I'd say we definitely would like to look at the litter. In fact on the night before we got Sonny I thought we had one for sure, it got down to me asking for an address and then I got no answers back.
We waited for a couple of hours that evening for the return email and nothing!! In fact the kitten we thought we were going to get was almost an exact twin of Sonny, Tony said not to worry, that there was the right kitty waiting out there for us and lo and behold there he was/is. He's perfect for us and we feel very lucky to have him!
I wish I could adequately express the joy that all the adoption stories bring me. Forgive the redundancy, but helping to raise the kittens and having them around the house is not the sole purpose of my fostering. Knowing that I've had some part in them finding the kind of home that Micki and Tony provide is the icing on the cake.
And I do love cake. With icing.
