We want to take a minute away from our good news to ask you to send some purrs to our mom's sister-in-law, brother and the kid. Abby is mom's sister-in-law and Max was her kitty. He had stopped eating and she noticed today he was breathing harder. She called their vet (they had to find a new one when they moved and got a great referral) and the vet said that she knew they were having to make some decisions, but as Max's advocate, it was up to her to suggest that they make today the day. So, as of this afternoon, Max has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
Today we are excited and very thankful for....
Last Friday mom got a call from the head of the rescue about a man who had come into the adoption center looking for.....Jake and Elwood. So mom spoke to the man on Friday and explained she would be away for the weekend and that the boys were snotty and had goopy eyes. And he wanted to meet them.
So mom went away for the weekend. As she was coming home Monday she got a call about one of the kittens at the Petco store. So mom picked up that application Monday night.
Tuesday everything came together.
Linus was adopted by a wonderful couple.
Mom was glad to see it - there were actually 2 applications and the first was....ummmm....not good. But the second listed their vet and pet sitter as references. He will have a cat brother and dog brother as well. Good luck Linus.
And then....the man came in to meet Jake and Elwood.
The boys came out and were friendly as always. They were a little distracted by the store, but the man sat right down on the floor with mom and they talked about the boys. The family lost their 18 year old cat 2 months ago and were ready to adopt again. There are three kids ages 11, 10 and 8. It should be great fun at their house. The dad had NO problems with the meds (they were giving their older cat fluids at home). And he seemed pretty smitten. Mom is hoping for updates.....(soon - MOL) Good luck boys.
In a weird moment, as mom was talking to Abby, the phone beeped about another call. There was a weird voicemail but mom said she thought the number looked familiar. She checked back - and it was the phone of the dad who adopted Jake and Elwood. So mom called back - yep, it was a pocket dial. But since she had him on the phone..... seems the boys are doing great. He said it was midnight before they could get the kids in bed. Mom laughed and said the cats were probably glad to see the kids leave for school. :)
