Ok- someone please tell me not to!!!

Thread Starter 
Ok...so here's the deal- there is a stunning chocolate seal point siamese at my shelter. His name is Nile. He has gorgeous blue eyes and would "sing" to you all day long if you let him. He's extremly vocal and very affectionate. I saw him on Monday....and he was still there today when I went to speak with the vet about my foster kittens. He is an adult male. probably around 2-3 yrs old. I'm not sure what his story is, but i will find out. I held him on Monday and of course i had to hold him again today. He is such a handsome little guy! I am dying to take him home with me!!!!! I'd post a link, but we don't have any pictures posted of him on our website at the moment. I was just thinking about it....but someone PLEASE tell me I don't need to adopt another kitty right now Talk some sense into me

I say go and adopt him! He's an older kitty and not many older kitties find a meowmy to love them in a forever home.

That's what I was thinking too. I always foster kittens....but I try to just adopt older animals if at all possible for that very reason. I just am not sure adopting him is such a super idea at the moment. I'm not sure Colin would go for it. We'll see. I think Nile will find a good home soon- but if he doesn't I will definitely foster him for a few days and just see how he does with my crew and if they're compatiable with one another. I would LOVE to adopt him though- he's such a sweet little guy! And is soooooooo vocal!!! (I love that!) My buddies up at the shelter have my number and promised they'd call if he got a home. I'm going back to the shelter next thursday to take the kittens to see the vet (she's at the shelter ever thurs.)...so if he's still there....welll....hehe, i might just have to butter colin up / I adopted my little torti-point Jasmine as an adult and i couldn't be happier!!! She is such a joy to be around! Fosters was also an adult when Colin and I adopted him, as is my bunny Sophie / Abilene I rescued 1/2 drowned with a litter of her siblings (all found excellent homes- i kept her because she was the most feral/unadoptable of the bunch)/ Isabella had been severly abused by a byb and dumped off at a high kill shelter when my rescue group picked her up. She was only a few months old at the time, and one of the shelter vets (who has since been fired) completly botched her spay. She was soooooooooo petrified of everyone and everything at first. I was the only person she trusted/came out around....so i just couldn't let her go. (I took her back up to the shelter the day I was supposed to place her up for adoption- and she looked out the window at me crying. I swear to you- i cried the entire way home that night and didn't sleep at all. The next day I went back up there and adopted her for good/ Velvet is a rescue from an extremly high kill shelter. They were going to euthanize her and all of her fellow littermates when she was a kitten, so we rescued her / so yea, lol i'm partial to rescued animals and if at all possible, i love to adopt the adults- their additudes are established, what you see is what you get, and you can see how they do with your other animals and all / I might take Colin up to the shelter with me soon "just to walk the doggies" and sneak him into the kitty room to see Nile

Here is a picture of Velvet (the kitty that looks just like my little Velvet)

Here is one of Nia - she reminds me a lot of Natalie's little Trout (her face looks a little different- but you get the point)

Nile doesn't have a picture up yet, but as soon as he does, i'll post a link

AWww, I think you wouldn't be sorry if you adopted him!! I adopted a Siamese and he turned out to be the nicest, sweetest, laid back cat I've ever seen. I think he'll prove very regal for you!

I think a lot of people do adopt older ones for the same reason, most people want kittens and they want to give an adult a home. Older people like them too, kittens can be rough on elderly poeple. I think if he is as sweet as you say, and a beautiful siamese he wont be there long (so if you do want him, don't miss your chance and wait ) A lot of people love siamese, so that's in his favor too. Some one will take him probley quik, so I would hold out and wait for one that really needed a home and doesn't have much chance. Either way, you won't be sorry (unless you drag your butt and miss out on him, if you really want him )

You want us to tell you NOT to go and get him? I think you are asking the wrong people if that is the advice you are after

I think Nikki knew we would tell her to go get him!

Although, IMO, you should leave Nile at the shelter. He is pretty & healthy. If you are considering adopting, go for a "special needs" cat. Maybe a deaf one or a blind one? Just my 2 cents!
post #17 of 28
Of course you need another one...silly
post #18 of 28
If you can afford it, definitely go get him!
post #19 of 28
Nikki, I say listen to your heart in this..............not your brain.If it feels right, then get him.If you are even second guessing it, then I wouldn't.You could always foster as you said to see how it goes.
I can HONESTLY say, I won't be adoping any more kits/cats, because I am at my limit.

If your heart melts for him go get him....and you can afford another tiny mouth

I went to visit him at the shelter today. He is such a sweet guy!!!! I decided that if he hasn't gotten a good home within the next month I will sit down with Colin and see what we both think about adopting him. I would never just bring him home without Colin's ok./ I'm sooo in love with this little guy, but i want to make sure that i make the right decision, i'll redo my budget,etc and see if i am financially able to properly care for another furbaby (although i think i am). So there we have it, if he doesn't find a home in the next few weeks, i think i will look into adopting him. Also, i've kinda held off on adopting him because Colin and I are supposed to be adopting one of his friends German Shepherd mix's. (long story) we have yet to meet this dog- so we will see how the intros go around Fosters and the kittens- if all goes well- we will keep him. If not, I already have a place lined up for him at the shelter . His name is Digger. I'm not sure if Colin is still planning on adopting him or not -we will see. I'll ask again tonight. I think if anything though- before looking into adopting nile, we need to see what happens with digger since we've already committed to trying to adopt him. If all goes well though and things work out, i'd love to have both of them However, nothing's definite at the moment- so whatever i find out, i'll share with ya'll. I think I hear Colin comming through the garage now, so i will ask about the dog in a little bit and see if he's still planning on that and all.. It would be soo nice to be able to give both animals a loving forever home- but if we are unable to- rest assured that both will be placed in other excellent homes

If he doesn't find a home in the next few weeks, i think i just might / He is such a sweet, stunning little guy! And extremly vocal (i love very vocal cats-they have sooo much personality!) I wish we had a picture of him on our shelter's petfinder.com site, but we don't at the moment. If he's still there when I go back next Thrs. I will take a picture of him on my cell for ya'll to see I forgot to take one today when I went to see him (he is a slim chocolate seal point siamese with an enlongated face. i think he's around 2-3yrs old. I'm not sure why this sweet fellow wound up in the shelter, but i will find out- he deserves a great home as do all of the other beautiful furbabies out there!)

Okay. In my worst Jedi Knight impression: *mystically waving my hand* This is not the kitty you are looking for.
