After a week of departures and crossings, it was great to receive some positive news.
Little Polly Smitten-Kitten found her Forever Home. I thought there must have been some kind of problem, as I had not seen her on the adoption listings. I was mistaken! She went up on the listing late on a Friday night, and by Saturday morning, there had been several calls about her. The shelter does not put kittens on hold on the phone, as they want people to meet and spend time with the kitties (and dogs) to try and make sure they are a good match. As one of the callers was on their way to the shelter, another couple picked Polly out. The caller arrived as the couple was filling out her paperwork. The caller then proceeded to try and fight the couple for Polly! Needless to say, the caller did not leave with a new family member that day!
Meryl was adopted on Sunday. She went home with a lady the adoption coordinator said was one of the loveliest people she had ever met. We think they will be a good match:) The adoptions of Polly and Meryl mean that all the Smitten-Kittens and Oscars have found homes. Hooray:)
We took Calvin in for a vet check today, as he didn't seem right. His gums were a little pail and he is not carrying as much weight as he should be, but otherwise the vet believed he was ok. He didn't have any worms, eggs, blood or other nasties in the poop sample he graciously offered in the car on the way to his check up. The vet believes his tummy enzymes are a bit out of whack, and that is making him feel a bit sick. We've started him on probiotics to try and help him out, as well as re-worming and treating him for coccidia, just in case. He seems brighter already this afternoon.
