Long time no update! Want to know what I got up to this week? Those eight pets are all adopted! Exactly one of them is a familiar face since I’ve been super lazy and haven’t posted in ages, so here’s a quick run down of this week’s happenings:
Top left: Pickles, a one-year old male Mini Lop that was surrendered because of “problem behaviors” that turned out to all be just normal intact male “teenage” bunny things. He’ll get neutered and be going home at the end of the month.
Top right: Cruzer, a two year old female DSH who was the last of the group of nine cats I took in October to find a home. She’s home with several small children who love her to pieces, at least one of whom is confused about whether she’s a cat or dog.
Middle left: Faithful, a two year old male DSH who came into the hospital with a urinary blockage and was going to be euthanized due to lack of funds (and caring). His bloodwork was actually 100% normal (the first time anyone including the doctor had seen a blocked cat with completely normal bloodwork) and he’s been adopted by one of the employees of the hospital.
Middle right: Edy, a fourteen year old female DSH who was found in a parking lot as a kitten with no eyes. She was surrendered because her family was moving and couldn’t bring her. You’d think a fourteen year old blind cat (not only blind, but literally without eyes) with have to wait ages for a home, but she only had to wait one week!
Bottom left: LITTLE LION MAN, everybody’s favorite neurologic lionhead, who has been waiting for a home for NINE WHOLE MONTHS has been adopted! AND MANY A HAPPY DANCE WAS PERFORMED.
Bottom middle: Mr. Brightside, a five month old male DSH who was found stray by a man was wasn’t allowed to have cats in his apartment. He was so playful and bouncing off the walls that I had to remove him from my dishwasher on Thanksgiving.
Bottom right: These two twelve week olds came in today and went right back out about half an hour later. They had a family eagerly awaiting their arrival!
So what do I have left to adopt out exactly? I have a one year old calico, CJ, who has an approved adopter coming to see her next weekend to see how they get along, I have a 5-8yr old cat Milo who was living in an abandoned factory for about a year being fed by employees of the company next door and who is a total sweetheart, and I have Joe, the FIV+ cat a friend of mine has been fostering for ten months. Considering earlier this week I was freaking out about how many animals I had I’m suddenly feeling a whole lot better.
