Random Fridays

Recognize that face??? Yep...that's Acorn.

She was adopted about 2 weeks ago. And on day 14, the lady brought her back. Seems her daughter got her a kitten, but then her son bought her a new puppy (for $700!!) so the kitten was being returned. Oh - and she wanted her adoption fee back. That didn't happen.....

However, the next evening a very nice family with 2 teenagers came in and fell in love with this cute fuzzy face (wouldn't you??). The daughter is actually thinking about starting her in training to become a therapy cat. So it was all for the best..... The new family has an adult cat and a dog (mom said she would LOVE to be a fly on a wall for that meeting....miss diva isn't going to be really happy about a d-o-g)
~~~~~~~~~~~

Lyon will head back to the adoption center tomorrow. He will be the littlest kitten available right now, so he should go pretty quickly. Fortunately he is also pretty friendly and that helps too.

Avignon?? Well, mom tried to drop her off yesterday to be spayed and that didn't happen since the first clinic "claims" they didn't know about the hernia that mom told them about. The head of the rescue said take her to another clinic. Mom headed off there....yes, the girl has a big bump on the same back leg. No hernia they could find....just....another abscess. We don't get it. Anyhow, no surgery and she is back to being tortured cleaned up on a regular basis.
We know what you are thinking....but what about that tortie kitten???  Well.....she has an application submitted on her and will be here for a little bit longer until she can get to her new mom.

Mom dropped the laptop off yesterday so hopefully we will be back on track next week.

  2. Grrr...well, I guess all's well that ends well...right? Yeah, I know...easy to say afterward, but major frustrations on the way. As long as the kitties get fixed up and adopted to forever homes. Whew!

  4. look at that flagrant use of photos in this post *giggle*

    I always call those types of adoptions holding patterns.. because apparently Acorn needed to be where she was when she was to get to a home that will be her forever home. I'm sure she'll get over having to put up wit a dog in no time..

    can't wait to hear about that tortie adoption :)

  6. People just really get my goat. BUT being brought back beats some other alternatives! So I will be grateful for that aspect of it. Bless Acorn.

  7. Some people think cats and dogs are like macrame wall hangings... Don't ike 'em, don't want 'em? Take 'em back. Get your money back. On to the next living, feeling creature that can be passed around.

    How much cat and dog food can be bought for $700? How many animals are waiting in pounds and shelters for homes?

  10. I'm so happy Acorn is still being adopted. Maybe it will end up better this way. The teenager apparently really wants her, so that is good. We love success stories.

  11. Acorn would make an awesome therapy kit=cat! That's exciting - though I'm sorry there was a re-homing in there.
    Poor Avignon! We sure hope everything works out and that she heals up and everything!
    Good luck to Lyon!
    Yours sincerely,

  18. Well, it sounds like Acorn found her true happily ever after. Better than the knuckleheads who returned her!

    We're purring and praying for little Avignon.
