So I was talking with Cheyenne.....

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
after school today about maybe getting another cat. We decided that we would just wait and if one came along and adopted us that would be fine.. ijust about an hour ago I was looking through the paper and fond this ity bity add a lady is trying to find a home from her grandmothers cat. the grandmother is going to a nursing home and the lady and her family are allergic to cats so she can't keep him. he is about 8 years old,
declawed and fixed. i started to throw away the paper after i read it but I kept thinking about that poor baby and wondering what will happen to him if she doesn't find a home for him. its eating at me. so my delima is should I call her and offer to take the cat or not. its really bothering me. so im turning to the one place where i know i can get good advice and support one way or another.

Awwww go on and bring him home

I've decided now that if i ever get another i'll get an older cat because their the ones that really need a stable home, because everyone gets kittens.

Susan is right, the older ones are the ones in need. I always wanted kittens but I know I could love any cat just the same no matter how old he is.
I think you should bring this cat into your home. You said you'd wait and see if one adopted you, maybe you should at least call and enquire...put your mind at rest. He might even have a home already but then at least you can put it to bed.

I agree, give them a call and find out! There's no harm, at all, with making an enquiry!

he just wasn't the one for you. i called over christmas about a male ginger cat - but found he already had a home. if i had gotten him, i wouldn't have gotten my new mushpot, Chip - the right one will be along soon!

Thats a shame but if you hadn't made the call you would still be going over it in your head.
Next time!

At least you know he has a home, and won't have to wonder. It must have been a true cat lover to take in an 8 year old cat.

Just remember...the advice you find here is from crazy catladies and catguys! We ALWAYS think you should get one more!!!

I'm glad he found a home. Someone who needs you will be along soon.

Hey! How far from southern Minnesota is Spicer?? It's only a 3 hour drive! I can think of quite a few cats that really need you here!
post #12 of 28
Not the kitty for you but good news he found a home!
post #13 of 28
Yes I'm glad to hear he got a home. the older ones are always the most difficult to adopt..yet they're litter trained and calmer.
We almost adopted a 5 year old over christmas (I still can't get over how pretty the eyes were, they were like what you see as the color of the caribbean sea!).
But at least you know and won't regret not finding out!

funniest thing happened!!!! i was out looking for a job and got lost lol (im still learning my way around) and pulled into a parking lot of what looked like a storage building next to some train tracks i saw cars so i went in to get directions and it was the humane society!!!!i just started laughing when i got around to the door and saw the sign. i went in and of course asked to see the cats! the first one that came up to me was this huge mine coon named georde hes beautiful!! and sooo sweet. i asked about him and he is up for adoption so i filled out an application i should know within a couple of days he is they think about 2 or 3 (been declawed) neutered and they said he gets along with everyone cats and dogs. they told me he had been there for several months and no one had even looked at him!!!!!! I asked if i could take his picture cause i wanted to show my friends (TCS!) and they said YES! of course you can! so here he is in all his glory keep your fingers crossed and pray!

GEORGE!

thats funny i was describing George to my sister and told her that i thought he looked like reilly too and she instantly knew who i was talking about lol almost all my friends and familey know who reilly is lol (is that bad lol it means i talk about cats all the time lol especially the ones here)

note to Reilly... you are a VERY handsome boy and no one can ever take your place just so you know lol

i need a copy of my lease agreement so that they can see that i am allowe to have pets first. I searched and searched and finially had to call my landlord but.... he is on vacation until friday the office said that they would be able to mail my a copy (their office is not in the town where i live) and i should have it friday. I called the shelter and the guy that answered was all happy i called he was like "Of course I remember who you are!" and i told him what was going on and that I should be able to come in monday (man thats a long time lol) and bring them the paper. he said "well first of all George is sitting right here on my office desk waiting for you" then he said that " We will hold on to him for you till monday"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i got off the phone and actually started jumping up and down in my living room lol i guess i screamed cause in an instant my neighbor was at the door wanting to know if i was ok lol i answered the door in tears it took all i could to tell her yes i was fine lol.

i really like the job the zoom groom does on Pixel [she's the only one who ever needs brushing] but i've never tried it on a truly long-haired cat. you might need something different... i'd wait on the signature until you get him home... you might be able to take a better pic!
