My latest, Sweet Boy, wasn't suppose to be adopted by us. After I found him, I called my husband on the cell phone and told him instead of going shopping as planned, I was on my way back home with a cat and explained what happened. When I first picked up Sweet Boy, he was shaking and hid his head in my coat (it was January). I just couldn't leave him there. Anyway, to make a long story a little shorter, my husband said we were at our limit with 8 and that we had to find him a home. We know a wonderful lady who runs Animal Helpers and does nothing but devote herself to taking in cats and adopting them out. My husband contacted her but she didn't have room for him so for three weeks, we fostered Sweet Boy. When she called and said she had an opening, I was heart broken but felt I was doing the right thing (I hoped) in trying to find him a home where he would be the center of attention. Anyway, we met her and turned him over to her and my heart shattered into a million pieces. I broke down right then and there. She called that night to let me know he was ok and that he had had his evening Cat Sip (he got some every single night and I bought out the Kroger supply to send with him!) She had him neutered the next day (which we gave her money for in appreciation of taking him in). My husband would call and check on him and she would email us. As it turns out, after observing him for a couple of weeks, she didn't feel he had a very good chance of being adopted. He was too nervous and shy and she didn't feel many people would want to work with him. (But can you blame him? Everyone he ever trusted abandoned him). My husband told me this over breakfast at Steak and Shake and right there in front of God and everyone, I started crying. My husband, my wonderful husband, asked me if I wanted to go get him and of course my answer was YES. So, we did. I've got my Sweet Boy and I feel like the lost lamb is back in the fold. He is such a joy, such a blessing that I can't imagine not having him in my life. I am definitly his person and he is surely my special boy. And he still gets his Cat Sip every night!
