Dang! I saw that this thread had gotten a lot longer & hoped there would be a link to pics of your new addition! I'm disappointed now!

You guys are so awesome, I don't know why they wouldn't pick you!

I think the thank you note was a fine idea!

I hope you hear something soon. I think we're all just as excited about this new baby kitty as you both are, LOL

I also said that we were anxiously awaiting a response as to who the kittens would be adopted out to, and if they had any additional questions they wanted to ask me to feel free to write or call.

Think this was a good idea? Too pushy? I just want her to see that we're good people who are capable of loving and taking care of a cat, etc.
I think that was a GREAT idea when we were thinking about Antastasia (u had to fill out everything before u even get a chance to actually meet her and get information on her) we wrote her emails and everything and they responded pretty quickly, although we ended up with blue and tessa instead, there was too much things with antastasia she was such abeaty but we did the same thing and they got back to us right away and everything !!!!!!!

Emily, what's the scoop?! I'm dying to know if your gonna be a new momma today?! Oh, once you get the baby, I'll be happy to fill you in on all of the kitty-capades that will go on between Anya and the new one.....it'll take about 2 weeks for them to adjust....during this time, my DH must of said take him back 100 times.... he was so worried about his precious LuckyGirl feeling "upset" or "mad" or "not liking him" he didn't want anything to upset the princess..... And now, huh! The 2 of them are inseperable! Him & Louie are connected at the hip....ok at the ankle!

wishing you lots of baby vibes!

I haven't heard back anything yet. Not even a return email from the foster mom that I emailed. She does have a legitimate daytime job though, and not everyone is off today. I'M at work.

Where is lionnessrampant? How long do you usually take to get back to people? When shoud I decide they didn't pick us?

I know with me if I have more then one application to go threw it can take me up to a week to decide who gets the baby. If you where applying to adopt one of my fosters you would be top on my list!

I was hoping they'd pick you right away, especially with the email & pics of Anya, I think that was brilliant. But I remember, DH & I found this beautiful snow shoe kitten we wanted to adopt, we filled out the paperwork, and expected a call in a day or 2, (thinking that there would be some sense of urgency for getting the kittens into a home & out of a cage) when they didn't call I went & got Louie, then almost 2 weeks later they called me. I told her, I wanted to get a new kitten within a few days cause I was off of work and wanted to be around to help socialize them and keep everyone safe, also with litter training & stuff. I think 2 weeks is a long time to wait for a response.....

At the Humane Society here, it can take up to a week or possibly more to get an application checked. We do call for a vet refernce as well as two personal references, so it all depends on if we can get ahold of them or not! I wouldn't be too worried about not hearing back from them yet. I think their biggest concern is not with getting the kittens out of there so much as it is with finding the perfect home for them. Which, of course, you are!

I must add, it usually only takes a couple of days to check an application here. Rarely does it take a week or more. It does depend on what your application asked, etc.

Thanks guys. I guess I just need to be patient for a week or two. If anything happens you guys will be the first to know.

I was looking over Anya's info though and it looks like I need to take her to the vet for a couple more tests. I thought they did the feline leukemia and HIV on her but it appears they didn't. Now that I think back he said since she'd be an only cat he wasn't worried. I have to have these test results to show the adoption agency though... Poor baby. She doesn't care for needles. But then again, who does?
post #104 of 115
Aw, I really do hope you can adopt one of those girls. I'm sure Anya would love a friend.
post #105 of 115
Emily, they took LuckyGirl away to withdraw blood. Probably cause I was a nervous wreck. Although the nurses did say "oooh this ones a fighter!" I don't know what it'll cost you, my tests cost ~$150, for all 3 tests. They took 1 small vial of blood, and did the 3 tests...and it took 1 week or so to get the results back. Also, she was fine the rest of the day, she was a little protective of her paws, and a little groggy from the rabies & distemper shots at 1st, but after a bit she was back to normal....

I CAN"T WAIT TILL YOU GET ANOTHER BABY!!! I feel like it's me all over again!

Guess I better go and have it done soon then if it usually takes a week to come back. If I can't get there this week I'll go first thing Saturday morning, bright and early.

I got an email from the foster mom. I'm a little confused by it.

First off she commented on how adorable Anya is and how she looks just like two of her other fosters that are brother and sister.

Then she says that she was sick yesterday and wants to move forward with the adoption and will call me later.

What does that mean? That she reviewed the apps and chose us? I'm confused. I don't want to misread and get my hopes up. I wrote back and told her that Brian has the day off and is spending it with Anya and to feel free to call him at home. And also that I hope she is feeling better.

Its a bit confusing, but sounds hopeful? I'll keep crossing my fingers, but at least she said 'wants to move forward with the adoption' thats a good sign!
At least she emailed you back!

It sounds hopeful. It sounds like she might have accepted your application. But not sure.
post #111 of 115
It sounds like she has accepted you - at least that's how I'd read it. You could always clarify with her, but I would be cautiously optimistic.

That my dear means you have yourself a new cute baby kitty!!!! I'd be expecting a phone call from her later to arrange the details of picking her up.

Congratulations, it's a girl!!!!
