Adoption Update (and more)

Slow adoption weekend but we only had an event on Saturday because of the volunteer appreciation party on Sunday.  There were two adoptions but one of them was Sabrina!  Sabrina has been with us since she was found in a ditch after a storm and was only 6 weeks old.  Poor Sabrina suffered from terrible digestive issues.  After 5 months of lots of vet visits and lots of meds, she was finally adopted at 7 months old.  And her adopter is not scared off by "lots of testing and there is nothing wrong, but sometimes she has stomach issues".  The other kitten adopted was Vivian.

The volunteer appreciation party was a great success.  Almost 50 people attended (spouses of volunteers were more than welcome at the party).  It was great company, great food (Jill, one of our board members is quite the chef) and created a spread that had at least two people ask her if she would consider catering their daughter/grand daughter/their wedding!  We decorated her house Friday and Saturday before the party complete with a tree for the "thieving santa / pink elephant" gift exchange.  Everyone had fun and it was a great turnout.  Unfortunately we were too busy hostessing and forgot to take pictures.  *big frown*. 

We love our volunteers very much - they are the reason we are able to help so many cats.

Hooray for Sabrina and Vivian! How wonderful that they've found forever homes in time for the holidays. :)

I'm glad the volunteer appreciation event was such a success, and that everyone had a great time. You all certainly have OUR appreciation! :)
