Cat I am looking into adopting - Page 2

post #31 of 47
Was there a breeder's website? If so, maybe there is a phone number on that rather then just the email. Unless they are out of town, they should reply by this coming weekend.


Check your private messages - I left you one about info I found for the cat

I had thought about calling, but, I get so nervious and intimadated when talking with some poeple. I have to really force my self to be firm with my kitten buyers, so I am in charge of the situation and I am not talked down on prices, ect I kind of end up babling on. When I am talking with breeders, bosses', or any thing like that I get so intimadated, and I can never say what I mean. I end up saying some thing that is stupid. I really like emailing, so they don't know how pathetic and cowardly I am!
I may end up calling, I really would hate to pass him up because I didn't dare to call and be turned down on the phone, I am such a geek

I was wondering if you had heard anything, but figured you would of mentioned it if you had. Maybe they are as incredibly busy as they said on their site. My heart really goes out to you. It is something how some of us can fall in love with an animal we haven't seen before.

I know it isn't feasible, but if they seen your expressions on this site, which has touched my heart and has me rooting for you, I know they'd allow you to adopt him. I'm trusting that it is going to work out, but if it doesn't, I wouldn't take it too personal. This cat would be very fortunate to have you, but maybe for whatever reason they aren't able to see that.

You seem so very sweet and I understand about the talking to people thing. I used to be like that until I was put in a situation where I had no choice but to speak to and in front of people on a regular basis. I'm praying and wishing for the best for you and that beautiful animal.

Again, Thank-you! Your post is so sweet and encouraging, I will be calling tomorrow! I feel like I owe it to myself, every one who has been supportive and encoursging, and mostly Cazh. I think he deserves the best home (even if it isn't me ) What is the worse that can happen? I stttstuter a little, feel a little foolish, and be turned down, at least I gave it a try. Mabey if I am being a persistant pain in their butt, they will get the point, that I truely have fallen in love with the little guy and I am completely willing to take a senoir cat which may not live too long, but I want to have him as long as he does have left, so he is happy, loved and warm (since I will never beable to stop holding him!) I will continue to look for a rex with just as much of a need for a home as him if I don't get him, but I won't give up until it says he is adopted, LOL! I wish it wasn't so late, I would call them right now while I am feeling brave 10:40, that's not too late, right
Thanks for the encouragement, I will let you know what happens when I call.

Why don't you jot down on paper more/less what you want to say and ask. That way you will have a little guideline to help you out. Many times we worry about things that never turn out as bad as we imagine.

Maybe even print out this thread and highlight some of the things Good luck. I'm sure you'll do better then you think right now

So where is this breeder at? I don't think I ever figured it out. Can't wait to hear how the phone call went!

Wolcott, CT. I am not sure where that is, it will be atleast a 4 or 5 hour drive, I think. I am not sure how I will get out there, but I will worry about that when I need too, LOL! And, NO, I haven't called yet, I have been busy and haven't gotten to it. It is about 50 degrees here and no snow (just a lot of mud ) so I have been cleaning the barn and brushing horses. My MIL is selling the Mustang So I am making him all pretty. ( I knew better then to get attached to the darn thing, I knew that it would end up being sold when I did ) So, mabey in a few minutes I will give them a call.

Come on girl - get with it - was looking to see the results of your phone call. Did you make a list of some of your highlight questions?
post #39 of 47
Oh trust me I know what you mean about making phone calls, I am completely phobic of the things, my social skills leave an awful lot to be desired. But sometimes if you want something badly enough, you just have to bite the bullet. I had to grit my teeth to phone a breeder, but if I hadn't got on and done it, I wouldn't now be looking forward to bringing Sonic home at the end of the month!

You can do it! Write down what you want to say, it helps a little. Sending you 'good phone call' vibes

I just wanted to send some support regarding the intimidating phone calls. I definitely know what that's like, and I'm studying to be a social worker, of all professions! When I need a push to do something that is a bit scary, I make sure to reward myself after I take a chance. Hopefully, finding the right Rex for you will be your well-deserved reward!

I recieved an email to let me know that I won't be able to adopt him.
They said they don't think he would be a good match with another male. The woman forwarded my email to a woman here in maine, she says she has a beautiful blue male that was going to be used as a breeder, so he should be very nice, and he has a great wavy coat. They decided not to use him in their breeding program so he is going to be neutered soon. He is about 8 months. Although he sounds wonderful, I think I will have to tell them No. I am a little upset about not getting Cazh, and I think I am just not going to adopt any cats right now.
Thank-you all for your support and encouragement.

Sorry you feel bad .
post #44 of 47
Awwww I'm sorry to hear that
post #45 of 47
Aww I'm sorry too. While I disagree with a male rex not wanting to be around other males (all my boys were fine), they know the cat. Maybe they were looking at an only cat home instead.

When you are ready to adopt, let me know - I know a lot of rex breeders and can help you pick the right one

While I completely respesct, and understand their decision, after all they know the cat and he is their main concern, not worrying about upsetting me, I feel they could have asked me more questions about me and my male cat. They weren't just looking for a one cat home, on his page they said he wouldn't mind a cat-friendly dog, or a friendly playful cat, but wouldn't like a pushy dominent cat. I wish they would have asked me more about my cat, and not assumed because he is an intact male that he is dominent, non of my cats are pushy or dominent, they are all friendly, even my male. Plus on occation he is caged. I wish I had made that clearer, but I just gave them a quick summary of me and my home thinking they wouldn't just decide on one email, and would have more questions for me. So, I am upset that I won't be adopting him, I am happy to see they are looking so thoroughly into a home for him, and so concerned about him, after all, I would be the same way, I am interested in placing my babies in the best home for THEM, not potential adopters . So I am sure seeing how he probley won't have many chances of being adopted at his age, they gave it serious thought (mabey thats why it toke so long to get back to me) and was doing what they thought was best for him.
Thanks for encouraging me, mabey next time? (although I will know if I am getting it before posting next time, LOL!)

Too bad I didn't know you when I had to place some of my rexes before moving - you'd be a good home for one of mine
