More Introductions

I'd like to introduce you to a few more dogs and cats, if you don't mind.  I'll try to make this quick, because there are several of them.

First is Simon.  He's a gray tabby cat that came from a city shelter where he'd been living for seven months.  He's three years old, and he really wants a home of his own. 

Next, there's Polly.  She is one of the puppy mill dogs that All Paws took in about a month ago.  She's been in another foster home, where she had taken to climbing fences and bullying the other puppy mill chihuahuas, so she was sent to rehab at my house.  Ziggy volunteered to be the drill sergeant.

As if I didn't have enough cats running around, I went to a different city shelter and pulled this girl.  I named her Belle, and even though she's a Calico, she seems very sweet.  She is six years old and was in danger of being euthanized because of her "old age", so I had to take her.  This was the glare she gave me when I called her old.

And finally, I brought home this dog and named her Pebbles.  Then I remembered that I already had a foster dog named Pebbles previously so I changed it to Freckles.  Then I checked my blog while typing this post and realized I also had a foster dog named Freckles already.  So I think I'm naming her Cleo.  For now.  

She doesn't really have laser blue eyes.  She does however love to chase cats.  Which makes it not an easy foster situation for someone with three foster cats running around (plus two staying at PetSmart and Kira and her kittens in another room).  Wow - when I put it like that, it doesn't really sound all that crowded around here. 

So for those of you keeping track, here's the latest:

Remi (my Great Dane) is visiting Noelle (my deaf pit bull) and Dave (my husband) at the old house this week.
Ziggy (deaf foster pit bull) is starting his own boot camp to keep the other dogs in line.
Polly (foster Chihuahua) is learning how to be a real dog instead of a puppy-making machine.
Cleo (foster Beagle mix) is learning the new rules of the house and enjoying life out of a shelter.
Simon (foster tabby cat) is living at PetSmart and hoping to be adopted.
Tiggr (foster tabby cat) moved to PetSmart today and is hoping to be adopted again.
Belle (foster calico cat) is living in a quarantined area (aka my bathroom) until she can be tested/vetted.
Brie (foster tabby cat) is hiding in the home office.
Sorbet (foster Siamese mix) is exploring the entire house and still bouncing off walls.
Kira (foster torbie cat) and Kona (kitten) and Kimba (kitten) are living in the "cat room".
Merlin (my cat) is enjoying the new house and all the new friends.  I'm sure of it.

Now I'm planning on no more new fosters until I get some adoptions!

Hi everybuddy! It's awfully nice to meet you! I hope you all know what a super wonderful foster mommy you have! It kinda looks like she's making up for lost time from all those months she couldn't foster. Heehee!

Wiggles & Wags,

Wow! That's a lot of pets! But it's awesome of you to take them all in!

I have a coworker looking for a beagle, maybe I will send her the pic of Pebbles-Freckles-Cleo, even though we live in Michigan.
