Just an update on Sam. I just spoke to his new mom and he's doing well after a week in his new home. She said he seemed depressed the first couple of days and cried a lot, which makes me so guilty. He's doing much better now, though. She said he's very sweet and affectionate with her and loves to play. She's still working on introductions with his new brother, Jack, who's also FIV+, but said there's been no aggresion and the boys seem very curious about each other.
Here's the best part: although Sam is considered to be a permanent foster and is technically up for adoption through the rescue, his mom says that as far as she's concerned, this is Sam's home for life. How great is that? My sweet Sammy has a real home! Brings tears to my eyes.
I'll probably go visit Sam in a couple of weeks after he's had a little more time to settle in.
Thanks, guys. Your vibes and prayers resulted in a happy ending for another special kitty.
