Speaking of which... I've been wanting to share this update with you concerning a sweet familiar face from the last adoption drive. His name is Jack.
Not being in direct contact with Jack's foster, I begged a very kind adoption volunteer to please please please keep me in the loop of his adoption status. She promised that she would and she has.
From what I understand, it turned out that at the time of the Expo adoption drive, Jack was already out on an adoption trial. I asked the adoption volunteer to pass on my recommendation of that kind father and his family... that if this trial adoption falls through for some reason, to let the foster know that there was a wonderful family who would be perfect for Jack. And if the trail adoption worked out, I asked the adoption volunteer to please break the news to the kind man and recommend him other special cats.
I know that there are many other such cats who badly need good homes. For example...
... And Xena, also an abuse survivor, who is blind in one eye.
Unfortunately, the last I heard... neither Jack's foster nor the kind man got back to the adoption volunteer, in spite of her numerous phone messages and e-mails to them. So we really don't now how Jack is doing in his new home, nor can the other cats be 'promoted' to the kind man.
I can't say that I'm not disappointed. The Flyer and I had thought that we had found the perfect family for the little fella. But as long as he is being cared for in a permanent home, it's wonderful I suppose. Still... I can't help but worry a little about Jack. But there's very little we can know or do when the foster doesn't respond. The rest of us have done everything within our power for dear Jack. We can now only hope and pray that the best has happened to him.
I'm sorry this isn't better news that I bring. But this is what is happening.
If I hear anything else about Jack, I'll definitely share the update here.

This smart-looking Tuxedo tried to soothe the frightened kittens next to him. "Don't worry, no harm will come to you"
The Expo hall was very cold. Some kitties tried to stay warm under towels in their prettily decorated cages
And to all the cats who were up for adoption... Sleep well, my friends. May you wake up to find yourself loved in your Forever Home!

- Why does my cat pee and poo outside the litterbox? How can I get it to break that habit?
- want to adopt another cat. But I am afraid my unfriendly cat will fight with the new one. What can I do?
- I picked up a stray kitten at my void deck. Now I want to adopt that long-haired Birman cat. When my kitten gets older, can I leave it at the void deck?
- I want to start travelling more. But that means my cats will be alone at home for many days. What can you do to help me?
"Huh?!" gasped the children in disappointment. "So we have to take an ugly cat?"
"Yes, an ugly cat," the father said.
"But this one is SO cute!" the kids cried out, pointing furiously at the white kitten.
"Er... yes," the mother said quietly, looking pleadingly at her husband. "That one really is quite cute."
"No," the father said firmly. "Only an ugly cat," and he made them look through the posters of the special-needs cats... the ones with only three legs or some kind of deformity.
