Adoption Diaries: Reunited!
Elyse’s Adoption Diary:
October 10, 2007: My very first Adoption Diary entry.
“I heard a gigantic rumble. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I scooped Whitney up into my arms and carried her to the socialization area. I sat down and she plopped herself on my lap. I'm not kidding, this girl has the loudest purr I've ever heard. Oh man, I'm so in love.”
Turn up the volume on your computer and hear the purr for yourself!
I continued to visit Whitney until she was adopted the following month, in November. Fast forward to March 2009. I received a message on Facebook from Phyllis Willthe woman who adopted Whitney! She had read the blog entries about Whitney, saw how much I cared for the cat, and found me on Facebook. Phyllis invited me to visit Whitney in her home! Now here’s the kickershe lives four blocks away from me! Two days later, I was reunited with the rumbling white goddess.
Thank you, Phyllismy neighbor!for taking such wonderful care of Whitney, and for opening your lovely home to me. I always wondered where Whitney ended up, and now I know. She’s spoiled to her kitty core. No complaints here from me!
While it’s great to play with social cats to help ensure they stay that way, shelter volunteers should also spend time with the shy/scaredy cats to help boost their chances of adoption.
