THANK YOUFor all the comments, support and everything else yesterday. Mom gets choked up reading the comments. We are so very grateful to be a part of this community!!! Purrs and kisses to all of you..... Marg said the auction should be up Monday and she has already gotten a lot of donations. We know we keep saying it, but thank you...... The chip-in for the auction in on our sidebar as well.
Who is that cutie in the carrier you ask??? That would be Cleo. :) Mom took her yesterday for her lady-gardenectomy. And then she will move to Petco. The kittens aren't nursing anymore (darned teenage mom lost interest) and she is adorable and needs a home. Plus we is hoping that some "alone time" for Cleo will mellow her out a little. (sure - good luck with THAT) MOL
Mom: hey - she isn't that bad. OK, so she lays in the middle of the hall and uses some grouchy werds on you guys, but at least she isn't chasing you down the hall like some other momma cat we had here.
If you are on that facebook thingy, we would like to introduce you to a "new" kitty. Her name is Lahela and she was a Guardian Angel cat from Best Friends. She is blind and was VERY VERY shy when she was first rescued. She has now been adopted and posts about her adventures adjusting to her new home.
A local rescue Black and Orange Foundation blogged an article about adoptions from rescues. It seems that some people get frustrated by certain requirements and questions that rescues ask. The article was great (and so is Black and Orange). Should be required reading for all potential adopters. :)
As most of you know by now, mom loves driving for Ontario Bloodhounds. If you click on the link you can read about 3 of their adoptable dogs in the news!!! Hoss was in a music video and Pete and Lily are going to be ON BROADWAY!!! That is right, these sweet hounds were selected by a reknowed trainer to be the Bumpus Hounds in "A Christmas Story". And once the show is done, these well trained kids will be available for adoption!! And if you live in or around New York City, get tickets and let us know how the hounds did in the show.
thanks for the linkies.. :)ReplyDelete

Cleo is a cutie! A couple of those links have piqued our interest. We'll be checking them out.ReplyDelete

That's mighty cool about the Bloodhounds!
We'll be purring Cleo's ladygardenectomy goes well and she gets adopted really quickly. She's a beauty!ReplyDelete
Many purrs for Miss Cleo!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the links!
I think some humans who complain about adoption applications maybe should not bring kitties into their homes, and that is part of the weeding out process. Yes, some rescues can be a little too strict and perhaps not as human-friendly as they are cat-friendly, but when someone complains about reasonable requirements on an application, it says something not-good about how they plan to treat a cat once she is in their home. Just my thoughts as a cat... look, my human passes these things with flying colors and she is still a PITA sometimes!ReplyDelete
We've got the mom looking for auction items. We sent Marg an email earlier today with a couple!!ReplyDelete
