Throwback Thursday: Creed.
Do you remember Creed?
Creed came to us in May of 2009 along with his brother Dwight and his sister Phyllis. (Their page is here.)
All three kittens were pretty skittish at first, but they warmed up and turned into the sweetest little snuggly lovebugs. They were with us for about six weeks.
Creed, Phyllis and Dwight went off to Petsmart and were adopted fairly quickly. Unfortunately, Creed was returned in 2011 due to allergies that a kid in his home had developed. They were heartbroken at having to return him. He was adopted back out, and then returned in 2014. Since then, he’s been to Petsmart several times, but he doesn’t do that well in a cage, gets anxious, and overgrooms.
He is such a sweet, pretty, friendly people-loving boy.
I wrote this yesterday afternoon, and I was ready to make it yet another plea for y’all to share in hopes of finding that sweet boy a home. He is such a sweetheart that all the volunteers have fallen in love with him and have been hoping that his people would come along and find him.
Last night, Kathie met with people who had seen Creed and thought he might be the cat for them. There have been inquiries about him in the past, but this family seemed serious about possibly adopting him. Kathie met them at 6:30, and I obsessively checked my phone every 10 seconds from 6:31 on, hoping but also afraid to hope. Finally, we got word…
And finally. Finally, after years of alternately being the official greeter in the cat room at the shelter and sitting in a cage at Petsmart hoping for his people to come along, that dear boy has been adopted. I know I’m not the only one who is beyond thrilled about this – this is just about the best Christmas gift I could have hoped for. Join me in wishing the very best for that boy and his new family, would you?
I’ll be back tomorrow with the last of the Carolina Kittens pictures, pictures of Dustin, and more!
