Adoption Update

It was a slower adoption weekend, but three kittens were adopted this weekend:  Tweety, Mojito, and Vala.

And while we're at Petsmart doing the adoption event, one of the managers from Staples office supply came wheeling in a Staples shopping cart with a little kitten in it  asking if we had misplaced a kitten (um, no...).  Apparently this little guy pressed the "Easy" button on how to find a new home and walked right in the front door of the Staples store (Brooke, I stole your joke!).

He so hungry that when we put food in front of him, he almost dive-bombed the bowl. We did scan him to see if he was chipped...nope. He's very friendly and appears to be between 8 and 10 weeks old. Clearly he's been with people but we can't imagine how he got to be in the middle of a very congested shopping area on a very big and busy street unless he was just dropped off there by someone. Possibly he hitched himself a ride on a vehicle?

We wanted to name him Staples, but his new foster mom vetoed that and named him Marco Polo because he's a smart little adventurer.  We like that name too!  He was FeLV/FIV tested last night and he is negative.  YAY!

 In the picture above, he's giving himself a bath after he had just been given a bath by foster mom.  :-)

Yeah for kittens smart enough to find themselves in the hands of responsible rescuers (though mom likes the Staples name idea...)

Good thing he found you - I found Chica in a shopping mall too 20 years ago!

Three adoptions are reason enough for us to celebrate. Hooray for Tweety, Mojito and Vala!

Marco Polo is adorable! We're so glad he found you.
