Mary - who has been with us since she was 4 weeks old and we can't imagine who no one has yet snatched her up - was adopted. Sometimes Mary hides but she's not shy but she doesn't necessarily like to just walk up to strangers. An approved applicant went to a foster home to meet some kitties and Mary picked her. She was adopted Sunday and it was just the best news. But it gets better. The adopter was able to get permission from her landlord for a second cat so she adopted Hemi on Monday.
Hemi and Vortec were adopted when they were about 5 months old but were returned due to the adopter's health issues. Vortec was re-adopted by a family who came to meet Hemi a month or so back but Vortec picked them and they adopted him.
We are so happy that some of the cats we've had since they were little kittens are finally finding homes at almost a year old or at a year old. It was a bad year last year with many of our kittens "aging out" (according to people that want to adopt little kittens) before they became available for adoption due to the worst outbreak of ringworm that we've ever seen. But these kitties are finally getting their turn and we are so happy for them.
