I have to stay away from pet finder

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I saw a cat that I fell in love with from the picture. I wrote the humane society offering to foster her and to be updated on her status if they were to even think about putting her to sleep.

Here is her picture http://www.petfinder.com/petnote/dis...petid=12246427

I can't stop thinking about her.....My husband is going to kill me!

I stay off there because I feel bad for the cats.
There are 2 sphynx that need to be fostered.
I wanted to do it but my husband said no.
He wont let me get a dog either.
If I did foster them they would not go back.
One is 9 and the other is 7 I think. I hope your husband lets you get the cat.

She's a beauty. I hope you're able to foster her.

awww she's cute. She looks alot like Toby. I know what you mean about petfinder. I have the same problem. I keep finding more cats I want to adopt. It's so hard to forget them once you see their sweet faces and read their stories.

I also have the same problem. I fell in love with a gray short haired oriental female a few days back. Hubby said NO WAY lol. I try to be realistic. I can afford every day care for another one but I do worry about vet bills. Plus my 3 boys get along really well. A female might upset the apple cart lol. It is hard though. If I ever win Powerball I will definately be having a huge house that is 3/4 dedicated to cats.....I dream about that day lol

I woke my husband up last night to ask him about the cat I found. This is an emotional time of year for me because I lost my favorite soul cat 4 years ago Dec 22. Then I have to go on Pet finder and it tears me up. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul and this little girl has such big beautiful sweet eyes. Maybe somebody will fall in love with her like I did.

Ace is coming home with us on Wednesday!!!! I put a hold on her. What is really odd is she was declawed but never spay by her owners. She was relinquished to the human society because her owners had way to many animals. She came to the shelter with another cat who was adopted out 30 days ago and she has been very lonely since then.

I knew you end up with her.
I am trying to talk my husband into letting me save a sphynx mix that is 9 years old.
He wont let me.

Happens all the time, unfortunately. People declaw first to save their furniture, but can't afford to get them fixed at the same time....and then they just "never get around to" spaying them.

Congrats on bringing her home!

I believe the eyes are the window to the soul, too, and the sec I saw your sweet girl, I thought how sweet her eyes look.
Thats fantastic she has a home now. Congratulations!

I had to really talk to him about her. I actually got teary eyed. I don't know why I got so emotional over this little cat. Something is really pulling at my heart strings to bring her home. It's got to be something that is meant to be

Aw, I'm so glad she came home for the holidays!

I am excited to bring her home. I hope my little thugs are on good behavior. My senior cats will just say "Oh god she brought home another cat" The abyssinians are really good sports when it comes to a newcomer. I hope Zoey takes to her in time. They are the same age. I will take pictures but I still have an old fashioned camera so I will have to get film developed. I was supposed to get a gift certificate for my 5 year anniversary at work 3 months ago and I was going to get a digital camera... I'm still waiting on them!!

We will pick her up at 1pm (cst) tomorrow. I hope the snow stays away! She is 60 miles away.

She is home!!! What a sweet little cat! She loves to snuggle already. The abbys are trying to like her but she keeps hissing at them. Zoey and Bast are not happy with her yet. The elderly cats keep getting hissed at!!!

This is going to take awhile for the balance to come back to my house

I am glad you got her.
I got lucky with Cleo.
No one hissed or anything and they are all friends already.

I can get away with bringing kittens in to our home better than a full grown cat. They will get along eventually. It's the females who are messing with her. She stands her ground! She is home now and wants to be a part of the family!

Good luck with Ace. Are you going to change her name? I love her markings.

We named her Felix. I know it's a male name but my husband went for that name. I figure her name will eventually be Lexi. I always give give them nicknames in the end!!!

I haven't got pictures of her yet. We have an old fashioned camera and I didn't get film yet. She is a domestic shorthair with a classic tabby pattern. She has short little legs, short tail, and is a chunky girl. She is such a sweetheart and my girls are giving her a terrible time! She is happy to be out of her small cage at the shelter, and is standing her ground with my little thugs. I will get pics asap and post them!

I love the name Lexi and Felix is OK for a girl. That was my late Step Grandfather's name, Felix!
