it’s a word that makes me smile and i am smiling right now. I just got back from delivering two of the Golden Girls to their new home! little Sophia, the runt of the litter, and Blanche the biggest of the four, are now Velma and Daphne. the five year old son of the family renamed Blanche Daphne and that set off the ScoobyDo theme for names
I had been out running a few errands earlier, and came home to a message at Greta’s Kingdom Facebook page from the manager of where I bank. at first I didn’t recognize the name, and then once we got chatting, i realized who it was. definitely a cat person, and someone i know fairly well, I felt really good about the adopting and that’s how these two wound up in a new home tonight!
what i found amazing, is that the hubby of the family, a self proclaimed dog person, had Blanche curled up in his arm, and was completely sold! LOL don’t you just love how they do that? hubby has been around cats, and even rescued one where he works, apparently they have quite the feral cat problem down at the office. it became very apparent to me that even tho he described himself as a dog person, hubby also has a very big heart. 🙂
the misses of the house, was sold on little Sophia. Sophia in her arms cried for petting and if you quit, she would start crying again. ironically, in the beginning, little Sophia was very shy and took long to warm up but has most certainly come out of her shell since being here at Planet Kitty. i am sooo utterly happy to have them go to this new home!!!! it fills good when it’s someone you know and know that u can trust!
the only bummer news to report today, is that little Aidan is limping. he’s the one that got his foot all ensnarled in the wire pet cage, and i have to see that this is the first time i’ve noticed any limping since the incident. it also felt like to me that he just didn’t overall feel very good today either, and it has me concerned, so i will be keeping a close eye on him, and if we must, will make a trip this week to the vet to have him checked out if necessary.
returning home from the vet yesterday, seemed to have really stressed Elliot out, but he’s alot calmer and more outgoing today. course, having to apply cream to his bum 3 times a day i’m sure he just relishes that experience. NOT! lol he also seems so dang skinny but he’s “very siamese” and i think that has alot to do with it. he was mr. popularity at the vet’s office. the vet tech even wanted to take him and probably would of if it weren’t for the hubby at home that “don’t want another”. we will continue with the cream application tho, and keep and eye on the little man. and of course, Aidan’s foot as well.
