Update on Peaches and Vacation Pics!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Some of you may remember that I was asked to get have Peaches adopted out by last Wednesday or take her to a shelter. She is living in our spare bedroom and we did not think that she would do well in there for 8 days alone while we were on vacation. I have been trying to adopt her out for about 6-8 months now with no luck. Well it came down to the wire on the Wednesday before we flew out. I took her to a shelter in town, they were full, but I don't think I could have left her there anyway! The place was so sad, there are so many pets there waiting for homes. The local cat adoption place is full also, it is a good place with limited space and I would feel very comfortable leaving her there while they try to find her a good home. Anyway, they were full and we are on the waiting list.
Finally, we decided to board Peaches for the 8 days while we are gone. Plus, we had her yearly exam done, she got rabies shots and all of her vaccines!!! Yay! This worked out so well. The people at the vet's office are really nice, they play with the cats and they let me bring her catnip monkey toy and her bed that I made for her So, she is in good hands and being well cared for (instead of in a crowded shelter)
When I get home I can start the adoption process again and hopefully find her a furrever home

With all that said...we are on vacation in Telluride Colorado. The skiing is nice even though its in the 60's during the day. At lease we are not freezing

Here is a pic of the mountains...and the old railroad cars that are along side of the road on the way to Telluride

Hope you're enjoying your vacation! I've heard of Telluride - isn't that the place with a lot of people with "alternative" lifestyles? Sounds interesting. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for Peaches.

Thanks for the well wishes for Peaches. We sure could use some of that good ole board magic to find her a home!

I havn't heard of any alternative lifestyles but there are alot of Hippies around town. Its a really cool little town set into the valley

Check out this pic... this is from the gondola. You can see the little town at the bottom of the hill.

I think you are thinking of Trinidad, Colorado - known for performing very specific elective operations.

Heidi, HI!!! You are about 2 hours away, cool! It is so beautiful out here. Is Denver mountainous as well? We are actually thinking of moving out here some time in the near future.

I am missing Peaches alot. I tried to call the vet tonight to check on her but they are closed, we are a couple of hours behind Florida time. I will call her in the morning. I hope she is okay.

Has anyone ever boarded a cat before? How was the experience?
