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.
