The kittens are posted. I am really, REALLY hoping they can get adopted together. I’ve even sent messages to the adoption counsellors.
The word online is that it’s a really tough summer for adoptions for some reason. No wonder we’re so full. HOWEVER …
Bella has been adopted!!!! Her new people are lovely; a couple and their teenage children. Bella will mostly be for the mom, Veronica. But Veronica’s husband — a lifelong cat person — needed to be won over. Bella couldn’t manage coming out to say hello, but he (Adam? I’m so bad with names!) spent quite a bit of time under the desk with her and was impressed at the progress he could make in a short time! She took treats from his fingers (!!!!) and allowed quite a bit of petting. They aren’t taking her home for a couple of weeks. They felt that out-of-town visitors next week and a weekend away after that would be too stressful — rightly so. So I’ll keep her and continue to work with her until they’re ready to welcome her home.
And Raksha has a meet & greet coming up! Not scheduled yet — the potential adopter is away for the weekend — but she’s keen and has been looking for a while. She has a cat already and hopes Raksha will be a good match. She will; she gets along with everyone! Fingers crossed!
But that will still leave me at capacity. Since Bella put me over and Baloo will still be here. I was promised a spot at our biggest partner store for Raksha & Baloo; lots of volunteers to help with their socialization. I hope it opens soon for little Baloo. She’s VERY slowly getting better but she could really use extra help.
I hope the little ones will go quickly — we have a LOT of kittens available. Heh … he almost left with Bella’s people. He shamelessly threw himself at them and Adam(?) really wanted him. But Veronica was adamant; NO kittens. 😉
