There have been a couple of changes here at Hotel Three Chatty Cats, so I thought I’d drop in with a Monday morning update.
First off, guess who’s been adopted?
That’s right, Mr. Carington was adopted yesterday afternoon. His adopter read about him here on Three Chatty Cats and asked for a meet and greet. Ross and I drove him up to Best Friends yesterday and she loved Carington (of course!). She is the nicest young woman and I’m happy that we got to meet her, as I think that will probably be unusual for our fostering situation. I imagine that most of the time, we will be dropping off our fosters to return to the community cat rooms (like Juno) so they can be seen for adoption.
The adopter said she’d provide updates, so I can’t wait to see how Carington is doing. He only spent two short weeks with us, but we fell in love with him while he was here and we couldn’t be happier for Carington.
While we were at Best Friends, we said hello to Juno, who is still waiting for adoption and still sassy as ever. She is enjoying her time playing with the other cats and is said to have a crush on one of them. I guess she really likes his tail.
I was happy to see that Juno was featured on the KTLA Morning News over the weekend. They do a segment where they feature Los Angeles area adoptables – and Juno was chosen for yesterday’s segment. I hope that helps her get adopted!
After Carington’s adoption yesterday, we chatted with Samantha, the Cat Behavior and Enrichment Lead at Best Friends who was filling in for the foster team since we were there after they’d gone home (it was a later meet and greet than usual, I think). Samantha showed us Hope, who is a six-month-old that needs a lot of patience and time to blossom. She has basically been in a shelter cage her entire life. :-( Best Friends pulled her from another Los Angeles shelter right when her time was up.
Hope doesn’t like being touched and warns with a hiss and light swat (so we’ve been told). In the past week, I guess she’s taken treats from fingers with the behavior staff – so that’s improvement. Ross and I have our work cut out for us with Hope. We’re up for the challenge!
Here she is hiding under the desk. Overnight, Hope came out to eat and use the litter. But so far, she stays hidden when we’re in the room with her, although she does seem interested in toys. She hasn’t even been here 12 hours yet. So, we’ll give her lots of time to adjust.
That’s it for now. Hope everyone has a Happy Monday and wonderful week.
