First...special thanks to all of you for taking care of everything while I was away! Great job!
Second...what happened with Chewey and Jerry??? Well, the man and his wife were in PetSmart and apparently she sees a cat, through the glass, she must have. The man returns without his wife and informs and says his wife loves Chewey and he would like to adopt her. He comes to the Shelter and tells us he would like to adopt Chewey so we complete the application. The application is approved and he is called to arrange pick up. Of course, he states he is in a hurry as he is leaving for two weeks and would like to complete the adoption before he goes. Tom goes to PetSmart, picks up all of Chewey's paperwork and brings it back to the Shelter where the applicant completes everything and now only needs the cat!! The man meets Crystal at PetSmart (Crystal knows all paperwork has been completed) points to JERRY and says, that's my cat!! Crystal only knows that her role is to simply hand over a cat that is ready to go - not knowing that all along he was calling Jerry Chewey. He simply shows her what cat he believed he did the paperwork for! So, off they go...very happy...Jerry and Chewey's paperwork! Confusing!! However, all is well that ends well!! Jerry is settling in and doing well! We are happy for him!
Now Chewey...the Shelter did receive an application for Chewey however the person indicated she would be declawed. A vet check revealed that he had already declawed three cats in the past. After speaking with him at length it was obvious that he would not guarantee the same fate would befall Chewey. So, his application was denied. He did donate the $20 hold toward Chewey's adoption fee. Fortunately another application came in for Chewey over the weekend and it has been approved! We'll know tomorrow what day she is leaving.
Margo went home the Wednesday before I left for vacation to a very nice young girl who was thrilled to be adopting her! She will have a wonderful life.
By now you have all met SpeedRacer and Sherman - since both arrived about two weeks ago. SpeedRacer went home today!! The application was taken over the weekend and she was so anxious to have him so Chrissy met her today and off he went!
So with SpeedRacer happily running around his new home and Chewey slated to leave soon there will be two new arrivals - hopefully on Friday. Both are young, sweet, and playful! There is Champ - an orange male, about four months old, all rough and tumble!! He needs a family! Then there is sweet, pretty, Basil - a solid gray female about five or six months old. Both will acclimate easy to a home.

More brown paper was dropped off today as the Shelter received an email it was running low.
PLEASE double check ALL cages before you go and make sure every cat has access to food, water and a litter box.
