Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Friday Memes and Happy Tails Endings


My Friday memes will begin my happy tails ending to a story you have all been following.

A question Mom L and Dad P hoped had “yes” for the answer, as did Katie. Neither of our foster kittens wanted to be without the other. A dilemma when you take foster kittens to an adoption site that doesn’t pay attention to how bonded some pairs are. But Mom L and Dad P were able to get space for both girls at my former shelter home, Contra Costa Humane Society’s Kitty Corner!

And that was certainly NOT Katie’s first thoughts when Mom L and Dad P dropped them off at Kitty Corner. Katie didn’t want to leave her carrier so they left it there for a whole day so she could use it as her safety place.

You can see that Lilly kept returning to Katie’s carrier to make sure Katie was ok. And Lilly kept look out for any potential intruders. But after a few days, Lilly was out and about making new friends.

But precious shy Katie found herself a hidey spot, up high so she could keep her eyes on whatever was going on down below and it was also near the often open door with a screen so she could smell the fresh air. Lilly again checked on her throughout each day and often snuggled in with Katie for her naps.

When Dad P visited he found Katie in her hidey spot and she was grateful for his soft warm touch.

The staff told us that Katie was seen coming out at night to eat some dry food and use the litter box. She would even explore Kitty Corner a bit as well. But as soon as the first staff person opened the door—zip! She was back up in her hidey spot for the day.

The kitties all get some wet food once a day at Kitty Corner and as you can see, Lilly liked to eat her dish on the floor and then dash up to join Katie for her serving!! But, Katie started to eat some wet food when Lilly joined her. Katie is a social eater and prefers to have Lilly share her bowl of food. Katie and Lilly were at Kitty Corner for just two weeks before a very special family arrived, looking for Katie. They saw Katie on Contra Costa Humane Society’s website and the Dad especially fell for her and wanted to meet her. They knew that they could ONLY be adopted together so they were curious to meet Lilly too.

This family has two elementary aged children, both of whom kept their voices calm and quiet while visiting Kitty Corner. Big plus for Katie and Lilly!!! The parents also made sure their two children stroked Lilly and Katie softly from head slowly down to tail.

When the father saw Katie it was love at first sight. He stood next to her and gave her lots of pets. When he stopped, Katie reached her neck out so he could get to her head easier!! She invited him for more pets!!

The Mom and children were loving playing with rambunctious Lilly. After talking for some time with the adoption counselors where they learned of the medical challenges both Lilly and Katie faced and that Katie has juvenile gingivitis, they asked to fill out the adoption application! YES!!

Katie and Lilly have been adopted TOGETHER!!!

Katie above and Lilly below.

Mom L and Dad P both had leaky eyes they were so grateful that Katie and Lilly had found such a truly special family to call their very own. And they do get to live happily ever after together!!

I can’t thank all of you who shared our appeal for help with the unexpected cost of Katie and Lilly’s medical care. Your willingness to help us spread the word and in some cases even donate, mean tons to me and Mom L and Dad P.

Hope you enjoyed my memes and news today.
