I'm sooooooo happy to announce that I've rescued "Baby"(aka: "Honey") today, along with Magoo! Both of these cats I consider to be orphans. They grieved for the death of their favourite human and lost everything. Many hugs and thank you's to Jan and Tally who came forward to give these mid-life cats a second chance at happiness.
I called Jan shortly after Baby's arrival and she said he was already purring and on the sofa! Sounds like Baby has decided he doesn't want to be an orphan anymore and is looking forward to a new life. He sure seems pretty happy with his temporary one!
I touched base with Tally who took Magoo and she said he immediately flopped over for belly rubs. Awwww!
Many thank you's to one of my favourite husbands "Andy" who drove in Friday traffic to make it possible for these two to be in a loving home tonight. I don't think spouses get enough credit on my blog for all the great stuff that they do.
The little family of 4 (now orphaned) kittens whose mother was euthanized this morning were also rescued today by a new foster Mom that stepped forward. They were so hungry this morning when I arrived at the shelter - it occurred to me only at that moment that they must've been really missing their mother. I silently prayed, "Please, don't let me cry in front of the new foster Mom."
I also rescued two kittens that were not on the shelter website. Steve, who recently rescued 3 black orphan kittens offered to take these grubby little guys. Holy smokes - "Grubby" is an understatement. These two are about 7 weeks old and look like they fell out from under a car. They're going to have lots of fun at Steve's Disneyland for Cats. :)
