|By the way- I LOVE your avaitor title|
Ok....so i'm about to cry, but I guess it's a good thing!! . I just took all five of the newest kittens to the shelter for the check ups and the vet said that they were in good enough condition and old enough to be placed up for adoption. I just found out today that the new PetSmart in our town has set up a special section of their store as a permenant adoption area for our animal shelter (Our volunteers will be comming in 2-3 times a day to feed them, socialize them, and check on them- we also have a little area to vaccinate them in.) Petsmart really went out of their way to accomidate our shelter animals! I talk to the president of our shelter earlier and she said that so far, the satelite adoption center at Petsmart is working increadably well- we've already had dozens of kittens and cats adopted out of there! What wonderful news!! Also, no adoption fees go to benefit the store- they all go difrectly to the shelter to help the animals. . So as of right now, Kenzie as well as all 5 of the new kittens are on their way to the new Petsmart to be fully vaccinated then placed up for adoption. I am emailing the president of the shelter all of their pictures to post on the website so that they will also get lots of views. Wish those babies luck everyone! Hopefully all 6 of them will find homes soon! I definitely wasn't expecting to go from 6 kittens in one day to 0....so right now i'm a little sad and Colin's house definitely feels empty with just Fosters and I here at the moment . but it's for the best, the sooner the kittens are able to get out there and be seen, the sooner they can be placed in loving forever homes. I will be checking on them periodically until they are all adopted out- so I will let ya'll know whenever one gets a home. If you don't mind sparing a few ((((adoption vibes))) that would be wonderful for those little fluffy ones. Thanks again everyone.
Just to make you feel better, I live in a rural area, town pop of 1087. The HS here is 15 minutes away...in a slightly larger town. They had a DMH blakc/gold eye spayed female...aprox. 1 year. Very shy/timid. She was adopted out to a family without any kids, or exictable dogs(their dog was like 13 y/o) or other cats. She was only at the shelter 1 1/2 months. The average stay on indoor only adult cats here is 4 months. We have good luck with the black ones here!
Man, I wish you lived closer...there's one kitten at the shelter I want you to be caring for!
