Finally GOOD NEWS!!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all, it's been a rough month, and it doesn't look to be getting any less stressful for me in the next few weeks so I was so excited to get this piece of wonderful news. My first stray Ernie, who my sister turned over to my rescue, has found a permanent home with one of my close friends!!!!!!! I begged her to take him in for a few days when he got so depressed in my basement that he stopped eating. Turns out he was just desparate to be around people!! He has since put on 2lbs, he's been neutered and vaccinated and has found his place on my friends bed (though she informs me that he's started taking over her side of the bed!! ). She just can't imagine being without him.

So Ernie (aka Squeakers) welcome to your furever home!




(this pics are him when I first got him...he was very skinny and he was terribly unhappy in the room in the basement. He's a whole new cat now thanks to my friend!)

Thanks everyone! My friend is now telling me I am not allowed to tell her about any of my other rescues ever again!!!! LOL She's just too easy to sway. Her and Ernie are happy together though...so that's all I care about. Onward to get Albert and Annie healthy and off for adoption!!

Splendid! But why you dont mention her other cat, ie Ernies good pal??

Hasnt Ernie a cat-pal? No good. A little cunning campaigning - and voilá! A little friend to Ernie and their new Ma!


(not to mention a homeless cat less and one homecat more)

Thinking *exactly* what I was thinking

Anyway, congrats on the forever home!

Unfortunately Ernie seems to be meant for a one-cat home. It seems that when he was out on his own on the street he must have had to defend himself alot and whenever he has met up with either mine, or other foster cats he automatically launches an offensive with no provocation. He's much happier keeping his human to himself anyway. I just got the completed adoption form, so I'm just going to go over there tonight to take back the carrier from the rescue and give him a last snuggle, and then he's good to go! (and i will at least still get updates with this one!)

1 kitty down....who knows how many more to go!

Yes. It is a neverending story. Truly holy task but worth Sisyphos himself.

Yet. Nobody can help all, but all can help somebody. Therefore it is all right to take them one by one.

The help given counts for full value and is priceless.
