When I mentioned in yesterday’s entry that one of the cats in that picture was going home last night, did you guess that it might be this guy? (I know that Random Felines did!)
That is our dear, sweet Orlando, of course (I’m sure the ears gave it away!) He went home last night, and not ONLY did he go home last night, he went home with a Challenger’s House volunteer, Teresa. She met him at Petsmart and fell pretty quickly in love with his sweet self. Yay, Orlando!!!
Speaking of adoptions, Vinnie – who I mentioned in yesterday’s post was adopted on Friday – is apparently doing really well in his new home. There’s an update (with picture!) over at the Challenger’s House Facebook page and it is ADORABLE.
Say hello to the current resident of the foster room! This is Polo, who is also known as Hurley Garcia. Isn’t he GORGEOUS?
It didn’t take Polo long at all to examine the entire room, go into the closet and use the litter box, and then settle down on the cat tree for a nice, long afternoon nap. Every time one of us went into the room, he came right over to be petted. We’ll give him a day or so to get acclimated to his surroundings, and then try letting him out into the rest of the upstairs.
By the way, Polo is available for adoption. He’s diabetic and on insulin injections and special food. He’s a super sweet, friendly boy, and you can read more about him over here. (Well, and you’ll be reading more about him right here on Love & Hisses for a couple of weeks, too!)
(That’s a Petstages Snuggle Scratch and Rest scratcher. It’s rarely empty – if Jake isn’t in it, then Stefan or Tommy is keeping it warm. When Elwood was sick, he spent almost all his time sleeping in one of those. I guess what I’m saying is that the Crooked Acres cats give it two metaphorical thumbs up.)
