2-10-10 – No fosters!

Jump to comments

Dropping the Magnolias off yesterday morning went just fine. Drum howled most of the way to the adoption center, because he’s elected himself the mouthpiece for the litter, but once I was actually in the room and getting their cage prepared for them, they were so interested in what was going on that none of them thought to complain any further.

When it was time for me to leave, all except Clairee were already in the cage, checking out the toys I’d put in there. I picked up each of them and gave them a hug and kiss, and then put them back in the cage and shut the door.

When I leave kittens at the adoption center, I always watch them from outside the room, through the window, to see how they act. The Magnolias seemed a little confused, but not scared.

Except for M’Lynn, who went into the litter box to hide. Oh, M’Lynn. Break my heart, why don’t you?

But guess what? M’Lynn AND Truvy were adopted last night! Not together, but still. My little skittish girl won someone’s heart, which does not surprise me at all! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Drum, Ouiser and Clairee are adopted this weekend.

I’m about to leave for the hospital (for those of you who don’t know, I’m going to be spayed. Well, partially spayed.) Since I can’t really lift anything for a few weeks, it’ll be a little while before I get new fosters, so there won’t be much here to see.

When I’ve got something to report (hopefully the rest of the Magnolias being adopted!), I’ll definitely do so!

‘Til then, take it easy and update your own blogs often. I need something to occupy me while I’m recovering from surgery!

Stinkerbelle sure does love her Tommy with a passion.

  1. Dear Robyn,

    May God bless you and keep you safe during your operation. Hey, at least you’re not being declawed! (Ugh).


  2. Hey Robyn

    Thanks for all you do for cats and the rest of us, who get to enjoy your pics and stories. Whenever my husband walks into the room and catches me reading your blog he laughs and shakes his head. We have four cats of our own…. I think he wonders why I need to admire all of your cats and your fosters! I don’t know why but I do know that my day isn’t complete without checking in on your “family”. Thanks so much for sharing…
    Hope your surgery goes well!
    Take care!!

  3. Robyn, we all will be keeping you in our prayer! Sending you love and a speedy recovery!!! We will miss your postings tremedously!!! Tons of hugs!!!

    Michelle, my husband doesn’t get it either! πŸ™‚

  4. Hoping everything is going well this morning and you are soon resting peacefully and having fun with the morphine pump! So glad to hear about M’Lynn & Truvy! The others will get snapped up soon.

  5. Thank you for this post telling us about the kittens – delighted to hear that M’Lynn and Truvy are already adopted! I am sure the others will quickly follow – they are irresistable (is that something you teach your fosters?)
    Now, I hope everything goes smoothly for you and you are up and about soon. As Michelle says, your blog offers a wonderful break in my day. All best, and let the gen pop take care of you as you recover!

  6. We’ll be REALLY miossing your posts, so hurry up and get better after your surgery!

    We can’t wait for more updates!!!

    Hope it all goes well, and hurry back!

  7. Robyn — wishing you an easy surgery and quick recovery. Know that your resident felines will take good care of you.

  8. I’ve lurked for awhile, but wanted to come out to say good luck with the surgery. Yay for Truvy and M’Lynn being adopted. While all the fosters are sweet, the Magnolias have been my faves so far.

  9. Yay for two adoptions…keeping fingers and paws crossed for the other three to get adopted quickly as well πŸ™‚

    Good luck with your surgery! Sending you lots of hugs and purrs from me and my crew πŸ™‚

  10. All the best for your surgery! I hope you’ll recover quickly.

    So it’s foster-less time here, just while Martha and Ted from 50kittens.com are expecting a blizzard of kittens to arrive in the next few days? Perfect timing, I’d say πŸ˜‰

  11. this is going to be so weird, i always read your posts first thing every day at work. i’m productive like that. be well!

    oh! i have pictures to show you! a little girl came into the shelter who looks like stinkerbelle (and phoebe)! she’s marked as a siamese mix, which is what my vet always called phoebe. i’ll get her pics up eventually…

  12. Never realized how truly gorgeous Stinkerbelle is! You have your own permenant cookie cat. Hope all went well. I bet you will be the most popular patient at the hospital.

  13. Hope your surgery went well. I am sure Sugarbutt, Miz Poo, Jake, Elwood and the rest of your clan (and Fred) will take good care of you while you recuperate.

  14. My day also would not be complete without stopping here every day.
    Best wishes for a non-eventful and speedy recovery,Robyn.

  15. Stinkerbelle looks like she’s feeling awfully guilty about something. Either that or she is triple-dog-daring you to even THINK about petting her Tommy.

  16. Although you’ll clearly be missed, what’s most important is that you take good care of yourself. We’ll all be right here when you get back.

  17. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Thanks again for all you do for the kitties and sharing it with us.

  18. We are sending lots of heal up quickly thoughts and purrs to you! We hope you are feeling better quickly!

    And it is great that two of the Magnolias are already adopted – I am sure the rest will be in good homes by the weekend!

    Wow, it must be so quiet there with only, what, is it 11 permanent residents there? I think I lost track of who is what at some point.

  19. Hope all went well with your spaying. You know you can always check out the Cute for some post-surgery healing cuteness. πŸ˜‰

    Yay for those two babies! Paws crossed the other three find forever homes quickly.

  20. Thank u Robyn for taking gud care of so many of us and helping us find 4 ever homes! We wish you a speedy recovery. Maybe Fred will give you toona. – Teh Kittehs

    The humans also wish you a speedy recovery. Thanks for all you do!
