I dropped Willa off at Petsmart last night right before adoption hours began, and an hour later Kathie sent out the email…
She’ll stay at Petsmart ’til Thursday evening, and her family will pick her up then. She’ll have a dog to play with and boss around. I suspect she’ll be very, very happy.
She cracked me up when I dropped her off, because once she was in her cage she sniffed around, looked at the toys and then posed oh-so-prettily on the scratcher in front of the window and started talking to people walking by. Not for one moment was she scared – which was no surprise to me! She is one confident monkey.
It was 10 years ago today that I first posted about Joe Bob (then Moonman), who was our foster for a while and then went up for adoption; we ultimately adopted him about a year later, after we said goodbye to Spot.
And it was 6 years ago today that I first posted about Alice, who was tiny and grungy and scared, but well on her way to falling in love with Fred.
Time flies, doesn’t it?
Dewey certainly loves to curl up on that bed with his big brudder and snooze the day away.
I have said many times over the years that Maxi has the dead, flat gaze of a serial killer or a Tony Soprano, and I’m oddly pleased to see that that still holds true. In fact, 10 years after we first spotted her, I think her gaze has become even more malevolent.
