Carmelita’s Happy Tail Ending
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Do you remember my former castle guest Carmelita?? I hope so ‘cuz she has a very happy tail ending to share.
If you know anything about trying to get a bootiful sweet ADULT kitty kat adopted during kitten season, then you know how awesome this story is.
Mom L took Carmelita to her very first adoption even through our partner’s Community Concern For Cats. They have a “pop-up” adoption site they set-up during the height of COVID. It is open only on Saturday and Sunday and fosters bring their cats/kittens into a very nice space for potential adopters to come through and visit kitties in which they have an interest. Mom L took Carmelita a week ago, on a Saturday, for her first ever adoption event. The place was packed with humans eager to check out all the kittens. Carmelita and one other darling calico gal were the only young adults present. Mom L also too four black formerly feral sweet kittens for some pals of ours who are their fosters. Thankfully Carmelita and the black kittens (very shy) were next to each other to give each other some support.
Well on that crazy pants Saturday, this one couple stopped by and admired Carmelita. Mom L chatted them up to learn why they were at this adoption event and whether or not they were interested in an adult kitty. Carmelita is only about 18 months old. And so very playful, not to mention totally house trained right down to knowin’ what to do with a scratching post!!
This couple hung around at the end and left with their adoption application in hand. Next day, Sunday last week, they were one of the first people to walk in the door when adoptions went live! They came with their completed application and a carrier!! They were back to take Carmelita home with them!!!
Mom L shed a bunch of tears later that night ‘cuz we all missed sweet Carmelita. But she is clearly already taking over her very own castle!!
And her forever Mom and Dad are ready for her to own their hearts and apparently even their shoes!!! MOL!!!
