Leo & Chiclet (a revisit)

We reported earlier in the week about Leo and Chiclet.

Chiclet is doing great. Mom spoke to her new family Thursday night and she has moved in and made herself right at home. And they said that during the last storm she stayed right on their laps, so hopefully she was feeling pretty safe. She sounds very loved!!

However, Leo is back in his foster home. Mom did her leg of the drive on Thursday. Within about 48 hours of getting to his new "home" he was scheduled to go back to foster. Mom doesn't know the full story, so we aren't going to speculate, but the foster mom (mom met up with her for the last leg of Leo's trip) wasn't really happy. Yeah, better to send him back, but seriously - 48 hours?? Especially after he spent an entire day on the road??? makes mom more than a little nuts.....

Oh - and how hot is it here? Mom delivery Leo about 45 minutes from home at about 10pm. When she got there, she pulled up, stopped the car and stepped out....and her glassed IMMEDIATELY fogged up!!! That is hot....we are sleeping on the floor vents in sympathy. :)


  1. How awful is that for Leo? Oh well, hopefully the adopters won't adopt ever again. They don't sound like pet people. Better that Leo goes to a loving home.

    We are happy Chiclet is settling in!

  2. poor Leo! We are glad Chiclet has settled into her new family.

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, and Hollie

  3. Oh no!! Poor Leo!!! :-( May he find his real forever home asap!! Poor sweetie!!

    Yay for Chiclet though!! Take care in this heat! x

  4. That is terrible about Leo, but if that's the kind of home he went to, then it is probably for the best that they gave him back so he can find his TRUE furever home. 48 hours ... that is shameful, really. P.S. If you have time, please come by to read my story about Willow the wheelchair kitty. I think you will like it!

  5. I agree! Poor Leo! Lucky you found out.
    Vicki thanks you for the good wishes and she is on the mend now.

  6. We're really happy for Chiclet but sorry about how things turned out for Leo. People! 'Nuf said!
    Stay cool! It was still 110 here at 7 last night.
    Play bows,

  7. I knew a woman who adopted a retired breeding dog, a beagle.She had a beagle at home already and when the newly adopted beagle growled at her dog, she brought it back to the breeder's home after having the adopted dog for a day!! Gah.Ugh.What are people thinking??!!
    Well Leo, thankfully you were given up immediately.Those people sound like the same sort of people who give up their dog when it is no longer "convenient" for them.Here's hoping your forever family is just around the corner!! :)
