For the next installment in the Adoption Tails series, we have a special guest post written by Jacques Bouchard, who grew up with many cats throughout his life and is a self-proclaimed lifelong cat lover. Recently, one of his four cats passed away from cancer.
Jacques has written about his time with Mr. Monahan, the role that the special cat played in his family, and how he and his wife have worked to honor Monahan’s unique personality and special character, while remembering that many other cats are still in need of a forever home. And that adopting a new kitten (Ollie) can also be an acceptable part of the healing process, for both humans and fellow felines.

Sophie here! You may remember that the Human Lady Mama told you how she attended America’s Family Pet Expo last month. You can read all about that here. At the end of the post, she teased that she was going to be sharing an adoption story that came from that very expo. That is one of the things that makes the expo so great – all of the animals who find forever homes! Since the Mama said I could have more blog time, I thought I should be the one to tell you about this fellow kitty’s adoption.
So, it was a dark and stormy night… (Sophie! Stick to the facts.) Ugh, the Mama is no fun! But she’s right. We don’t have many dark and stormy nights in Southern California. Let me start again. Continue reading “Caelum Gets Adopted!”
