New Addition to the Family

I was browsing through some of the cat adoption sites, looking for a polydactyl cat, and found one in urgent need of a new home. Her name is Kitty Cat (the Humane Society named her Gomez, but her adopting family thought that was not a good name for a lady), and she is about 5 years old. Her original adoptors have had to move to a nursing home. We took a drive to North Gower to look at her, and brought her home.

Kitty Cat is currently in a hidey hole, and growls when Jake or Annie come into the computer room. I am not sure if Kitty noticed Gloria come ghosting through. But she has moved house twice in the last four days, so I do not blame her one little bit. She is a beautiful sleek black short-hair, and I will post photos when they become available.

I love that you went to the Humane and found a kitty to rescue. I have two cats, both were strays and have fostered several here where I finally found homes for or a spot at the rescue shelter. Our shelter is beyond capacity so it is hard to get a cat in there. Why don't people take better care of their cats? I actually live in the country and watch people drop off cats thinking, I am sure, that they will fair just fine on their own. They don't, they end up here.

Concatulations !!!!

I've had Meredith for almost two months. She is also about five. It's still taking time for her to adjust to my other four.

Each day is better. I take her out and about with me. The two boys aren't hissing or chasing her anymore.

Give it time. It is worth it. She just needs to feel loved and that comes with time.

Thank You for taking her home ...
