HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
Our week-o-end was all about getting our two special
irritating foster kittens adopted. Mom L and Dad P took the two kittens to their first two adoption days this Saturday and Sunday at a local Petco store.
You can tell from the photos that sweet Katie, the ten month old survivor from the apartment hoarding place, just shut down on her first day. It was really tough on her. Katie was only five months old when Mom L and Dad P rescued her and she had already had a litter of kittens ‘cuz Mom L could see she had been lactating very recently. Katie has had a struggle to overcome her five months of tragic abuse.
Now little Lilly, about eighteen weeks old, at first thought this was gonna be an adventure, so she was willing to check out what was going on.
And then Lilly retreated to her comforter, her Auntie Katie and the two hung together for the duration of two afternoon spent at an adoption site at a Petco.
It will be a long road to getting these two now very bonded kittens adopted. But more about that later.
Mom L also helped one of the local colony feeders get a new cat in for spay, only to learn this cat had a microchip!! Well, her name is Lily, she was adopted at our local animal services just about a year ago and the people and phone numbers on that chip said “not my cat”. So this sweet kitty is now available for adoption at our local animal services by December 12.
My last news update is about Stan the mancat. Unfortunately Stan does not appreciate being in the animal shelter…duh!!!??? So he is starting to “stress bite” anyone who pets him. He doesn’t break skin, just gives “firm bitey bites”. So after serious soul searching, Mom L and Dad P decided to return Stan to his former caretakers. They are a really nice family who are welcoming Stan back with open arms. We are donating an outdoor house for Stan and some food to get the family started.
I will have a SPECIAL BLOG POST on Monday, December 17 about a fund raiser to help my Paw It Forward work with our two current foster kittens, Katie and Lilly. Please do put this on your calendar as a “must read”!!
