Random Fridays

Great news: the technical glitch is fixed and the web camera is working again. Mom created a tab at the top of the page that shows it. You can see it (on your computer but not mobile) on our facebook page too!! THANKS to Wayne from MeShare for getting us set back up.

Back in June we posted about a call the rescue got from Calgary Canada about one of our cats being surrendered to them. Mom got a call from the head of the rescue and got on social media asking for help picking up the cat and then trying to get her back to Ohio.

Mom got a response from Miss Jill on Twitter and they went back and forth. Jill went and picked up Tora (the cat) from the humane society and agreed to foster her until we could somehow arrange transportation. Which is almost 2,000 miles....quite a journey.

As time went by, Jill and mom conversed about how Tora was adjusting to Jill's home. Jill does have another cat named Clover who came from a pretty horrible background until Jill adopted her. Jill talked about maybe adopting Tora, but everyone knew it had to be on Clover's terms.

Over time, Tora came out of her shell and loved on Jill more and more. She came out of "her" room into the condo more and more and the girls, while maybe not in love, were interacting. There were emails about vertical space and play time.

Jill finally told mom that things were going well enough that she wanted to finalize the adoption and make Tora an official member of her family.

And then over the weekend she sent mom this picture of the girls sitting together watching cat videos on the tablet.

To anyone who shared or retweeted the initial request for help back in June - THANK YOU!! Tora was saved - the shelter had deemed her unadoptable and would have euthanized her if we hadn't been able to get her back out. From there she found a safe landing space and a new forever home....

Nothing much happening here this weekend. Have a safe and happy weekend!! Mom says the fall weather is back and she may shut the windows. Mo is hoping that means space heater season is finally here.


  1. We love a rescue story with a happy ending. Yay for Tora!

  2. Yippee all around! We are happy to see your cam back up and running and SO HAPPY for Tora and Jill!

  3. I'm so glad Tora is now officially home! And I just want to say, here is proof that what shelters deem "unadoptable" needs to be revamped, big time.

  4. I am so glad as is Summer and her mom, about Tora. I hate those pronouncements the shelters make.

  5. What a wonderful story! Thanks for sharing. Totally made our weekend.

  6. That is so wonderful!
    Yours sincerely,

  8. Hooray for Tora, Jill and Clover! We love happy endings!

  9. Yay for Tora and for Clover, who has a new, furrever friend. All good!
