Two success stories:
#1 - The chihuahua I posted about a few days ago was adopted yesterday, by an older lady who came in hoping to find a "special needs" chihuahua. I introduced them, she fell in love, and they went home together. I was almost sad to see him go, but so happy that he found a good home.
#2 - My mom mentioned a while back wanting a cat. Charles suggested hooking her up with the mama cat from my foster litter. I sent a picture, she liked it, I adopted mama and took her to OC today. My mom walks in the house, sees her, and says "She looks like a 'Mia'."
So now mama cat has a name and a new home. I hope to see her kittens go to good homes as well.
The shelter is a critical mass right now - cats and kittens are even being offered at "2-for-1" to try to get pets homes and make room for the many more that come in everyday. Two cats - spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and screened for viral disease - for $95. Any cat that shows any sign of sickness and all kittens that could possibly be a day under 8 weeks old are being euthanized immediately, simply because there is no room.
If you are at all interested in adopting a cat, kitten, dog, puppy, or rabbit, please, please check out www.rcdas.org
for available animals and more information.
I mentioned the situation at the shelter to Charles, and he posted a bulletin to his myspace friends asking them to consider adopting a cat. I love that boy.
It's my night off, and it's looking like a quiet night in. Charles spent all of his day off doing a tattoo for my benefit, a backpiece that got me $1000 off the cost of my motorcycle. So he's taking a nap now, and I'll let him sleep. He's earned it.
