We Want You to Foster!

Oh my gosh - what a weekend for adoptions

So there were the adoptions yesterday that I blogged about (Tipper, Varjak Paw, Vittles, and Optimus Prima).  Today was another fantastic day for adoptions:
  • Violet, Velcro, and Vodka - the last of the V kittens were adopted
  • Basil and Beamer were adopted
  • Rippa was adopted by her foster mom (another "foster failure"!!)
  • Andy and Angie were adopted (WOW!!  they were shy but doing much better).  Now there is a good chance Andy and Angie could be returned because of allergies but a great family and they really like the Andy and Angie (younger children and mom and kids liked older kittens instead of the 3-month old ones - double wow!!), so we're hoping it works but are prepared in case it doesn't (not putting any new cats at their foster home just in case)
  • Uma has an adoption pending
It has been a great weekend -- twelve adoptions plus the adoption pending on Uma.  This also helps because we have quite a few cats on the waitlist but had to wait for foster homes to free up.  

Now my wish list is for Carmen and Cleo to find homes.  They were adopted once but returned because of job loss.  They are such sweet girls (not the most photogenic at all but so sweet) and they would really love a forever home of their own.  They would love to go together but they would also do fine apart. 

And of course for our featured cat, Tiger, to find a home of his own.  He's been in foster care for quite a while and it's his turn to shine.

Yes, we are quite shocked. And that was with turning down several applicants. This opens up some much needed space in foster homes. We get so many calls/emails but we haven't had any available foster space. Now we do.
