Home Again: A Foster Cat’s Adoption Story #FosterFriday

cat silhouetteDear Mama,

Hi, it’s me, Harley. I’m happy to tell you that I’m finally home. It’s a different home…but it is a home. I know you’ve been worrying about me this past year. I’ve been worried, too. But I found a nice home to live in and I like the new humans very much.

It was a bit dicey there for a while, wasn’t it? Can you believe that I was adopted twice last year and returned both times? Living in those temporary homes was nothing like living with you and Pa. You two were the bestest that I could’ve ever asked for. I only wish we’d had more time together…eight years just wasn’t enough. After Pa died, I didn’t think I could be any sadder. But you warned me, Mama. You said you were getting up there in age and you might have to go keep Pa company. I really thought we’d be together forever. But sometimes forever doesn’t last.

The Handsome Bodie Jones

white cat in a basketSophie here – coming at you from my interview basket! You know that when I take over the blog there’s something extra special in store for readers. And today, that something special is an interview conducted by the totally pawesome me with the totally swoon-worthy Bodie Jones from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Mama told me about this rescue cat named Bodie Jones that she came across on Instagram. She and Bodie’s mom, Christy, bonded over…what else…cats. The more the Mama talked about the seven-year-old Bodie, I thought it would be fun to interview him. So, that’s what I did! Continue reading “The Handsome Bodie Jones”

Making the decision to adopt a cat is the beginning of an exciting journey. And for each adopter, the journey is a little different. Today in our Adoption Tails Series, we will see how one adopter turned to searching online for her perfect furry friend – and searched specifically for an adult cat.

But before we get to Karen’s adoption story, here are some reasons to consider adopting an adult cat.

Did you watch the Rose Parade?

First off, Happy New Year! I hope 2017 brings you joy, happiness and love. Now, did you watch the Rose Parade yesterday? If you did, I hope you saw the Lucy Pet float. I was one of the volunteers who had the wonderful opportunity to help decorate the Lucy Pet float this year.

While at BlogPaws in June last year, my fellow attendee (Jaimi) and I met the Lucy Pet team. Somehow the float was brought up and we were added to the float decoration team. It was a fantastic experience and something I would definitely do again.

Decorating the Float

Jaimi and I drove up to Irwindale bright and early on December 27th. We parked at a designated volunteer lot and then were Continue reading “Did you watch the Rose Parade?”

Can you provide the ending to this adoption story?

Here at Three Chatty Cats we love sharing adoption and rescue stories. But what about when the adoption story is lacking an ending? Today we’re introducing you to Summer and Splash who are being fostered in Richmond, Virginia with Cat Adoption and Rescue Efforts, Inc. (C.A.R.E.). I hope that in sharing their story, it brings them one step closer to a forever home. And by all means, please feel free to share, too!

The Story of Summer and Splash

Shared by foster mom Kelsey at C.A.R.E

I rescued Summer from a feral colony when she was eight months old and pregnant. At first she was very shy, but I worked with her every day, gaining her trust. Soon she learned that humans meant good things to eat and a gentle scratch under the chin.
