Sunday Adoptions


First off, I wish a very Happy Birthday to the hubby!  He NEVER wants to make a big deal out of his birthday; I usually find a way to make a fuss, but this year both he and I are trying to overcome our respective sinus issues, so he enjoyed watching the Detroit Tiger's win their game on TV, and he whipped up dinner for us both.  A beautiful day in Metro Detroit today after a rough Winter; a perfect birthday day!

Secondly, I spent a few hours today with Laura from Paws For The Cause Feral Cat Rescue where they have adoptable cats housed in the permanent display area.  What's so nice about this area, is the plexi-glass...NOT CAGES...and the cats can move freely between areas.  Today there were many folks asking about the cats, and a few completed applications. Missy was the one garnering the most looks; she's about seven years old, and she has a white undercoat, with dark grey overcoat. Her story is sad: her owners claimed they are moving, and brought her to the veterinary office to have her euthanized!  Thankfully, the staff there said they don't do that sort of thing, and they convinced the family to sign her over as a surrender.  That's when Paws For The Cause stepped in. Missy is sweet as can be, although a little shut-down because her quiet home life was turned on it's head a week ago.  But she'll find a home quickly; her personality shines through that lovely floofy fur!  Marco has strikingly good looks; his fur is grey and peach, with beautiful blue-green eyes.  Sophie and I played with wand toys together, and I believe a good time was had by all!  Sophie is bonded to her sister Shelby; they will be adopted together.

Back home again, I watched Patty O'Malley and Sweetie nap in the afternoon sunshine on the deck, and some of my worries about them slipped from my shoulders.  It was a wicked Winter, but the warmer temperatures and plants beginning to bud can only mean that we are headed into Spring now.  YAY!


  1. Happy Birthday to the hubby! And those are all lovely kittehs. May they each find their purrfect Forever Home.

  2. Happy birthday to your husband. Glad he had a great day!
    Missy's story is too sad. Glad vet convinced her former humans to sign over as surrender. I hope she finds a real, loving forever home she deserves.
