Writing this blog post is going to be one of the last things I do today before I go to bed. It’s been a long day, and I’m tired, but I’m also very happy. A lot of good things happened at The Cat Cafe today.
First, I want to thank our media visitors from NBC San Diego, U-T San Diego, and The Talk of San Diego. It was great having you all visit, and I appreciated you taking the time out of your busy day to swing by.
The U-T did a wonderful photo montage, and I invite everyone to take a look at it.
You all know that one of the goals of The Cat Cafe is to find homes for adoptable cats. We did that with Butterball on Saturday, and today, within an hour and a half, three cats went on their ride to a forever home.
Janis was the first one to head to her new home. I’ve had the chance to watch her blossom. One of the things the San Diego Humane Society requires during adoptions is a briefing on any medical conditions a cat may have. I had to tell the people adopting Janis that she was a shy cat. That may have been the case when Janis was taken in, but she really came out of her shell during her time with us.
To see this girl go from a shy, cautious cat to a playful and confident one was an amazing transformation. I’m so glad that The Cat Cafe had a chance to be part of it, and very happy she’s going to a home where she’ll be loved.
While these brothers were not so tightly bonded that they had to go together, it was better if they did. As if to demonstrate this, Larson decided to head over to groom Wexler when their potential family was watching.
They’ll be going to a home where they’ll have an enclosed and heated patio to stay in initially until they get used to the full house. If their actions at The Cat Cafe are any indication of what they’ll do, these two brothers will be demanding to investigate all of their new home in less than a day!
I’m going to miss these three cats, but I’m so happy that they’ve found a good home!
