Last night, this happened:
Not only were they adopted, they were adopted TOGETHER, and I love when that happens!
This leaves King Nubbs at Petsmart by himself. I hope his people come along soon, I hate to think of him without anyone to play with.
I might be able to have cats in the near future. I would like to have some savings built up before then, as I’ve never had dependents before. I know cats, when everyone is healthy, are not expensive, but i want to be prepared for emergencies. Any cats i have will be indoor only, so i know that will cut down on some types of trouble. What say all of you: 2K per cat? 5K?
This is a REALLY good question, but to be honest I’m not sure! Certainly the more you have, the better – even if you don’t need it, it’s good to have on hand just in case. So I’m going to throw this question out to the readers, because I’d like to know what y’all think.
Also, a thought: maybe look into pet insurance. We don’t have it for our cats, but if we had fewer cats, I would absolutely look into it.
Also! I had to share this bit, because i know y’all will join me in my outrage: i was looking at apartments online, to try to find a home in Phoenix. I came across one apartment complex where you could have cats, but they had to be fixed (of course), pass a “pet interview” (huh?), AND BE DECLAWED. WHAT THE EVERLIVING CRAP. Thanks for the clear sign that your place isn’t for me!!
WOW, that is unreal. I can’t even!!! What are they going to do if the US outlaws declawing like other countries do? (That’s a rhetorical question, obviously – I suspect they’d turn into a no-cats complex!)
Speaking of new foster blogs, if anyone knows of a cat fosterer that blogs from Arizona, please share. I’m moving (very much against my will and I’m so sad right now) to the Phoenix area in a few weeks. The good thing is that I might actually be able to afford pets there. I’d love to adopt kittens I watched grow from birth instead of one whose history is unknown…or, I might just drive the 24 hours between Phoenix and Huntsville and score a genuine Anderson kitten.
How about it, y’all – foster blogs in Arizona? Anyone one know of one (or more)?
Yay for Koko. I am sure that the adopters just couldn’t stand the thought of a preggers mama kitty giving birth under those circumstances. They are very big hearted.
I am very happy for Koko. I wonder if they got special price since they will be getting kittens as well? (snerk)
I should have sent a note in her toy bag asking her new family to send along pictures of the “new kittens” when they’re born! Ha.
Re: Shelton & Nubbs – Is it that they are black, that is probably causing the delay in adoption?
Probably – black cats are usually the last to get adopted, so that might be part of it. Also, adoptions have been pretty slow lately. I’m hoping that their family or families come along soon – the longer they’re at Petsmart, the more nervous I get!
FYI, I spent a good part of last Friday downloading songs on iTunes, because the cheesy (or not-cheesy) songs y’all suggested in last Friday’s post were some of my favorites!
During the week, I came up with one more: All Cried Out by Lisa Lisa and Full Force. I love that song SO VERY MUCH.
Since I STILL have no new fosters, how about pictures of all of the permanent residents, in no particular order?
Maxi. I actually had to go into the garage and go upstairs to get this picture. That girl spends about 80% of her time either laying in one of her self-heating beds or rolling around in the sun coming in through the window. It’s a rough life, but someone’s gotta live it!
Smilin’ Joe, hanging out on the warm bed. He must be getting old – until this year, he spent all his time, no matter how cold, outside. This year, he’s spending almost all his time inside, and it hasn’t been that cold.
2015: “Why you make it snow, lady? Don’t you know we in the south?”
2014: ONE DAY I’ll get a picture of a cat snuggling with Molly. (Or not!)
2013: “Um, still baking, lady. NONE of us want underdone kittens!”
2012: Nursing babies. OH SO SWEET.
2011: “Hallo, you has snack for me?”
