Received a text message yesterday, that Shadow/Loretta was being adopted by a super couple who have no other cats. She will be the queen of her own home, and they were picking her up Sunday afternoon. I managed to get to the PetSmart about 30 minutes after she'd gone, but that's okay...why make a big, teary scene when she is going off to her happy home? Goodbye, sweet Loretta...you'll live forever in my heart. I hope your new humans keep in touch.
P.S. Please send purrs and healing vibes to my friend Orbit at Peeballs and Pooplogs. Orbit is a rascally old fellow, who isn't feeling 100% and is going to the veterinarian. Wishing him a quick recovery from whatever he's got going, and a special hope to his humans who are beside themselves with worry.
