Finally after three weeks we have some adoptions!! Yippee!! Josephine went home last night. She was not scheuled to leave until next week but the family was anxious to get her home and she was picked up early! After three applications one finally came through for Humphrey. He was picked up today from the Shelter. He is going to have a lot of fun playing with his new brother - an English mastiff!
Ruby and Amethyst are doing fine! Do not worry about them. Also, we have decided to bring George and Jerry back to the Shelter. They will be picked up tmorrow. NOW BEFORE YOU ALL GET UPSET...they will be placed in cages in the Shelter in the front room where they will get sunlight and get to watch what is going on outside. They will be fine! We brought Leigh back and she has since been adopted. Remember Piper and Shiloh? They were adopted from the Shelter, too! Sometimes it takes a shake up in those PetSmart cages to get things moving again. It is very important that we get cats adopted as there is always another homeless little buddy ready for his or her turn. We simply can not afford to slow things down any more. I promise they will be fine!
Below is the six new guys. Bell, Book, Winston and Sandy II arrived today. Mr T and Midnight wil be arriving tomorrow.
Bell, a female, and Book, a male, are litter mates. They are about eight months old and came into the Shelter as terrified kittens back in June. They have come a long way and are very playful but may at first appear a tad shy. They will warm up when they relax. It is not necessary that they go together.
As you all know...give these guys the time they need to settle in. Do not force anyone out who does not want to come out. Do not open cages between new guys until you are certain they will be ok. And please do not worry about George and Jerry!! You know they are in good hands with us!
There has been an additional form added to the adoption paperwork from PetSmart management. I will email those who do the adoption table to bring you up to speed on how to handle that. It concerns vaccination records.
Update on Glory and Anastasia...they are doing well!!! Leona spoke with their mom the other day at PetSmart.
Deb and Warren have been covering Sundays for quite awhile but, alas, we will be losing them from February 10 through April 21. If you have any friends interested in helping now is the time to recruit them! We need a regular for Wednesday mornings, every other Saturday morning, and Sunday mornings (until April 21). Below is the days in February that need coverage. They are all mornings:
Wednesday, February 6
Saturday, February 9
Sunday, February 10
Wednesday, February 13
Friday, February 15
Sunday, February 17
Wednesday, February 20
Saturday, February 23
Sunday, February 24
Wednesday, February 27
Just a reminder...double check please...make sure all cats have access to food, water and a litter box before you leave!! Also, when we get down to about 15 pieces of paper email the Shelter and Cc me. It usually takes a few days for us to break some one free to cut paper and get it down to the store.
Stay warm and be careful driving this weekend!!
