Had to rush off earlier after I posted... I just wanted to post an update on each group of kittens that we've rescued.
Group one (Domino, Izzy, Cleopatra, Jack, Captain Squishy & Garfield): Domino, Izzy and Jack are in their new homes and their owners are thrilled with them. I get updates every once in awhile and they couldn't be happier. Captain Squishy & Garfield are, of course, staying here. Cleopatra is recovering well from her ordeal. She was terrified the first couple days, but now she is just fine. She still "spooks" at loud noises though. She hasn't stopped following me since she's been back. I haven't put her up for adoption again yet, I want to give her time to recover from everything.
Group 2 (Rosie, Lt. Bear, Skittles & Jasmine):
Jasmine has been in her new home for a couple weeks now and they love her a lot. I get updates every few days from her very excited 16 year old owner. Skittles was adopted a few days ago, to a young couple with one other cat. It's an excellent home for her. Lt. Bear is staying here of course... that just leaves Rosie to find a home. I've had some interest, but no one follows through with sending back the application.
Group 3 (Woody Jr., Larry, Taco, Sadie & Yukon):
We're keeping Woody Jr. Taco & Sadie already have definite homes lined up when they're ready to leave (Sadie's new mom has even paid the adoption fee already). That just leaves Larry & Yukon to find homes when they're old enough.
Group 4 (Justine & Eloise):
We found out that they were actually a couple weeks older than we originally thought, and are doing so well. We went ahead and let Justine go to her new home on Friday. The people had just lost their elderly cat and were looking for a new companion. Elosie has a new home lined up, they've come to meet her already and fell in love. She'll be leaving a week from this coming Friday I think.
Group 5 (Roxy, Sofia & Mr. Sprinkles):
John wants to keep both Roxy & Sofia. Mr. Sprinkles is going to his new home on Friday. His new mom is driving down to Indiana from Wisconsin to get him!!
Group 6 (The bottle babies... Chili, Annabelle, Marty & Sebastian).
We've decided to keep Sebastian... yes I know we're nuts, our number of permanent cats keeps climbing, lol. Both Chili and Annabelle will have homes lined up when they're old enough. I've had about 30 calls/emails on them, and several applications. Now it'll just come down to picking the best home. I got a phone call the other day, and a lady is coming out today to meet Marty. She is a vet technician and has raised many bottle babies. She wants to adopt Marty and asked if I'd be ok with her adopting him now and bottle feeding him herself. It seems like a great home, so I agreed to have her come meet him today. If I'm comfortable with her, I'll probably let her go ahead and take Marty now.
So that's our LONG update!
