Friday frustration.....

The rescue where I do most of my volunteer work has had some great adoptions and has space for some nice adoptable kitties. YEAH!!! Then I got thinking - what about Chiclet? She certainly isn't getting adopted sitting in my living room! Maybe her rescue would let me transfer her to the other one....

Nope. I sent the leader a message asking for her permission and explaining the situation. She said "She can come here, that's not a problem. Bring her anytime" (their adoption center is WAY overcrowded which is why Chiclet is still with me)

I told her I wasn't trying to get rid of Chiclet - just trying to help her find a home. Normally I don't have much to do with this group due to some of the things I have heard them say in the past. But I needed help with Bug and they stepped up by letting me foster Chiclet and her kittens. Then I fostered another group for them as well.

I just don't understand the mentality....why not accept an offer of help??? I suppose I could just "adopt" her and then take her to the other shelter, but that is underhanded and I don't want to do that. Aren't we all trying to accomplish the same thing here? Guess not - and that is just sad....


  1. When I had special needs cats that couldn't go into the overcrowded shelter, I took a really nice photo and put it in a really nice frame along with a brocure type write up for them to put on the adoption floor. The shelter also posted the write up and the photo on their website.

    Not sure if this will help you, but it was what I did.

  2. That can be frustrating. Did the one group that won't let her transfer invest money in medical on Chiclet? That could be their reasoning. Not defending, just suggesting possible reasoning.

    I sure hope Chiclet finds a forever home really soon.

  3. This does seem silly. Oftentimes it appears that rescues are in competition with each other, rather than respecting and supporting one another as comrades in arms. Very sad. I sure hope Chiclet gets a home soon!

  4. That IS silly. Someone is locked into a wrong mind set and unable to think thru another situation brought to their attention.


  5. I can understand why you would be frustrated. Perhaps if they have a little time to reconsider you can ask again in a few days.

  6. We are sorry you are having troubles.
    We purr they will reconsider,after all, it IS about the kitties!
    Thank you for your purrs for Mickey.
    We really miss him and it will take
    a while to get used to him bot being here.
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia


We love to hear from you.....
