Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of last week were good days for fosters. FOUR of our fosters went to forever homes. They were picked out on the shelter’s Facebook page, so they never had to spend a day in the shelter. They were fostered by us and taken from here directly to their forever families.
One. The chihuahua puppies without a mother were named by a shelter volunteer: Blondie, Tootsie, and Dagwood. Blondie went first.
Two. The following day Tootsie went.
Three. The next day Dagwood went.
And on the fourth day . . . Chase was chosen. The sweet little Chase kitten, who’d had such a rough start, was handed over to his new family.
From foster home straight to forever home. I’m exceedingly excited to have these sweethearts placed into their forever homes. I would just LOVE to get a couple of our own cathouse gang into forever homes, too. Would you be so kind to spread the word (again) about our current group? Send anybody wonderful that you know to my *Winnie’s Wish post or to our Petfinder site (top of my sidebar). The cathouse sweeties have been here long enough. They need their very own homes for our mission to be truly fulfilled. And even though it doesn’t feel like it outside, we’re rushing headlong into Spring . . . . and the 2012 Season of Feline Rescues.
If all goes as planned, we will have one more foster leaving. This one isn’t going to a home quite yet because first she had to be accepted into a shelter somewhere. You might remember my rescue friend, Mere Lyn, who recently needed a place for a female black lab named Sadie. Sadie has been with us for a bit, and she has come out of her shell and put on some weight. Well, Sadie WAS accepted into a shelter and will leave here on transport today unless something changes. I wish her a short wait before being chosen into her own forever home.
This is Sadie, running in the kennel side yard with us last night.
One last word about fosters. Last night, Beatrice With Babies was joined in our maternity ward by Paris With Packages. (We found it so odd that both of these expectant mothers have the same middle name . . .) We’ll announce new arrivals (Babies and Packages) as soon as they, well, . . . arrive.
I want to thank you, AGAIN, for your words of support - this time about our losing Pitter Patter. She lived a long happy life, felt good until very close to the end, and then moved on to the Bridge without a great deal of suffering. I guess that’s as good as it gets. Your comments and emails, once again, were so kind and so supportive. THANK YOU.
Tomorrow is a TWOsday in February.
