It has been a good weekend for adoptions. 

My orange cat Gandalf who has been living up at PetSmart found a home last week.  This also means Babette, the Persian cat who always glares at me, got to go stay at PetSmart so she can hopefully get more attention and find a permanent home soon!

Michaelangelo and DaVinci, two brothers who have been waiting for a home for awhile, were adopted together!  If two big black cats can find a home together, it gives me hope that someday Simon and Sampson, my two foster cats who need to stay together, will also find a home!

Four other cats were also adopted this week - Gidget, Sweetie, Toby and Cody! 

And most surprising of all is that Emma, my Labrador Failure Extraordinare, was also adopted!  She's on a two week trial adoption to see how she gets along with her new sibling cat, so I'm cautiously hopeful it will work out for her. 

Ziggy, on the other hand, was not adopted.  He had two different families come to see him, but he was not on his best behavior.  I am afraid Noelle got to him without me realizing it.  Not only was he extremely mouthy and difficult on Saturday, but he was extremely cuddly and sweet with me all day on Sunday.  That's exactly what Noelle used to do to make me fall in love with her and adopt her.  But this time I'm wise to their tricks - I'm not falling for it.  So Ziggy goes back to an adoption event next Saturday to try again!

A lot of rescue groups out here have been having a lot of adoptions also, which is great because it's still the middle of winter. I love Ziggy; I always thought our next one would be a white pittie. Fortunately we're all the way out in Chicago because I know we can't handle 3 dogs. I'm sure he will find a great home soon.

WOO HOO ... what a weekend!! I'm secretly holding out for a few of mine this week. Sue and Zoe both received great app's and I really like the peeps - just going through the steps now with all those above me. It's great but sometimes I wish we could just go ahead and see how it works bc you know they are just the right home for the dog!!! WOO HOO for people who need pets!

That's a lot of home those kitties found. Could you please take my evil kitty brothers to petSmart and see if someone will adopt them?

woof - Tucker

Good to hear all the successful adoptions... even for Emma, the special Lab who fears water... hehe. Looks like Ziggy has a plan too, huh!

Licks, hero

Hurray for all of the fur-kids who found their forever homes - especially Gandolf since you were kind enough to swap kitties with me! Congrats Laurie!
