I’ve been following a possible adoption into wonderful home for these two, and they did indeed go home yesterday! I’ll have more information after they’ve settled in, but for all of you who were touched by and worried about these two I have to let you know they took to their their new family right away.
Carolyn, the woman who’s been handling the adoption, had a message from the woman who was interested the day I posted it on my local Patch, and it was also cross-posted in other community Patch sites around me, so the story really got around. Carolyn visited the woman in her home and checked her identification as a good rescuer should; the woman had recently lost a treasured cat and had owned and rescued cats, had a veterinarian she knew well and even had pet insurance through her employer.
Yesterday they went to visit the cats in their home, and these two cats who were obviously so frightened and confused warmed up to their new person and within a half hour she was holding each of them and giving kisses to Suzy. They easily went into the carriers and went home with their new person last night.
I told Carolyn it sounded like a fairy tale. For all the times we wish and hope and pray and twist arms for an adoptive family for a homeless pet, I wish they would all turn out like this.
Below is the original post in case you missed it.
Today, in memory of Peaches and Cream, are two more senior kitties who lost their person and have been well cared for but living alone in their person’s home. Now the home must be sold…
Please help us! We need a new furever home. Will you be our new mommy or daddy?
Ten years ago was the happiest day of our lives. My twin brother Alex and I were adopted by our mommy. She loved us sooooo much. For over nine years she loved us, showered us with affection and we were the perfect little family. We were her only children and she was the only mommy we ever knew.
Then one terrible day she fell down the stairs and couldn’t get up. She was there for hours. Finally her cousin found her. She had to go away to a nursing home and we haven’t seen her since…we are so sad, scared, confused and lonely.
Her cousin promised mommy that he would find us a home but every shelter that he has contacted has said no :-(. So for almost a year he comes over every day and makes sure we are ok. His health is getting worse and now they need to sell the only house we’ve ever known.
Can we please come live with you? We’ll be good, we promise. Mommy said she would pay for us to get updated on our vaccinations and we come with all of our toys, dishes, litter boxes and a bunch of food and treats. Will someone please love us again the way that our mommy did? 🙁
Suzy and Alex
If you’re like me, you can’t read this without crying…and this is probably the sixth time I’ve read it.
Can you provide Suzy and Alex with a loving home? They are a little timid right now since they’ve been alone so long and it’s been very strange, but they are sweet, sweet kitties. And imagine how happy you’d make their mommy, who can never come home to live with them, to know that her two precious fur children are finally in a loving home again! They will be up to date on shots and exams and come with all their stuff.
Ten years old! They have lots of years of love left to give!
If you can help Suzy and Alex, their mommy and their mommy’s family, email Carolyn at email@example.com or call Peggy at 412 726 5651.
Please share so that we find a new home for these two! They live near Pittsburgh, PA.
