My foster dog Casey was adopted last night. I got an update from his new mom within a few hours. She reported that Casey quickly settled in after checking out his new home, and he just as quickly made friends with the resident feline. The cat's name is Noel, and she is 17 years old! It appears that she is quite friendly with Casey.
Unless of course the cat is just pretending to like Casey so she can trick him into some sort of mischief later. You can never really tell with cats.
I felt immediately comfortable with his new mom. She has a lot of experience with animals, and spoils her pets like crazy. I think Casey is one very lucky dog, and I am so happy for him. I knew it was going to be extra hard to let him go, but I feel great about this adoption and couldn't ask for a better home.
In other exciting news, I do believe that Mira the kitten is making a full recovery, and is going to grow up to be a perfect candidate for the Naughty Kitty Club. This is partly my fault - I have been spoiling her and granting her every wish, and she has become a bit too accustomed to this treatment. Dry food is no longer palatable - now it must be the premium canned food to be worth her while. The food should be given as soon as she is hungry - no waiting for specific meal times. Play time must come several times a day, and any delays will result in a lot of meowing and complaining. Affection must be given whenever requested, and will be rewarded with loud purrs. Cuddle time is required before bed, and is also rewarded with loud purrs. Overall, she's doing great and I am happy to spoil her for as long as I can - I am just so grateful to have her here.
Last night I also met with some friends for dinner, and we discussed the most recent breakthroughs in particle physics... oh no, wait. That's not right. We mostly discussed animals, and I explained about Noelle's Vanishing Spot Disease, and how sometimes I live in my own reality (where I discuss things like particle phsyics and I diagnose fake dog diseases like vanishing spot disease). I'm not sure why they put up with me, but I'm glad they do. Noelle's spots have not reappeared, so it is still a mystery as to what caused them in the first place. Although I think it might have something to do with particle physics.
