Sometimes I have to wait a few days after an adoption to write about it as it is a poignant and touching process. Of course, we rescue all our kitties with the expectation that they will find good homes with other people and all be mutually benefitted by our work. Otherwise we would be a sanctuary and there are times I wish we were! This is one of those times. I'm feeling the tug of heart strings.
Elizabeth was adopted yesterday and we said good bye as she went to start her life without us but in a loving home. Elizabeth and her brother were found at around 5 weeks of age. We took them in and they became siblings to Fergus. Elizabeth got along with everyone and lately had become nanny to the kittens coming into the Shack. She is a lovely cat and we are hoping her person realizes what a treasure she has.
On another front, or maybe it's the same front, we have 32 kittens at The Shack and in foster. They range in age from 4-12 weeks. The newest 3 are just 4 weeks old and were abandoned in Mayer. They are really little and just trying to figure out what it's all about. They have a gray sister who is camera shy. This is Marci and Millie. Not pictured, their gray sister Meg.
And in a few months, I will be writing to you saying the girls were adopted and how hard it is to let go of them!
Everyone of them is special in their own way and we are fortunate to have them in our care if just for a short time. We are lucky to really get to know them from babyhood on and to observe their strengths and weaknesses.
We are still looking for volunteers and fosters if any of you know anyone wanting to interact with kitties. Sundays and Mondays are long days for the kitties as no one is there doing adoptions. This would be a perfect chance for anyone interested in being with kitties, but not the public, to come and interact with all of our kitties.
Thank you again for all of hour support and generosity,
