So long Joe, we hardly knew ye

Joe’s been adopted already! He was posted on Wednesday and on Thursday the wonderful Alex inquired about him, was successfully screened, made an appointment to come and meet him, and asked me for a list of Joe’s preferences in food and supplies!

Just in time, too. Although Joe integrated quickly, he turned out to be one of those cats who, once he’s comfortable, thinks he owns the joint. He displayed some territorial behaviours and had a couple of tiffs with the boys. In what’s becoming a pattern in cases like these, there was a screaming match between Joe and Jonesy which resulted in Murphy dashing in to Jonesy’s defense and putting Joe in his place!  Fortunately, Joe will be king of his new domain.

Alex arrived, pretty sure he was going to adopt Joe. Joe, being a cat, was a little stand-offish at first. After all, we’d interrupted nap time! But by the time Alex was getting ready to leave (paperwork filled out, cheque handed over) Joe was rubbing up against his legs and flopping down to show off his belly.

I’m glad he had a quick adoption. He’s had a lot of disruption and deserves his forever home sooner rather than later. Plus he’s a lovely cat, sweet and affectionate, but also one of those who disrupts the harmony of the household. As usual, the resident cats are running around high fiving each other now that he’s gone. Not to mention we have a boatload of cats about to descend on us!

  1. Hooray for Joe! One cat we fostered awhile ago had that ‘total disrupt of the house’ personality to him, too. Our resident cat is pretty small and timid, and she seemed to get bullied pretty badly by him. He was sweet to people though, so when he went to reign over his own home, we were pretty relieved! Can’t wait to see your next foster kitty.
