With the help of social media and a network of foster mamas, a temporary home was found for Indigo earlier in the week until such time we could make arrangements. When I returned home from a business trip, a visit to Charleston Animal Society was made and they graciously agreed to allow Indigo back in the Adoption Ambassador program and for us to foster her until a new family can be found. THANK YOU to Charleston Animal Society, because without this arrangement there is no telling what might have happened to this beautiful gal because she does not appreciate life in a cage of a shelter.
Indigo is now a 2-3 year old cat, and while she has understandable confusion of the happenings of this past week, she does appear to have some memories of our home. She's now been introduced to our foster kitten, Tori, and while there isn't immediate love they are being the typical felines interacting for the first time. A little hissing and some growls as they work to get to know each other, but Indigo is already a "big sister" wishing for some time away from the "annoying" little sibling - it is cute to see how even in the animal world these interactions can exist. They are both playful felines, and we don't think it will take them too long start sharing and playing with their toys together.
Tori's upper respiratory infection recovery is doing GREAT and she visited the Pet Helper's veterinarian staff on Friday. She is a healthy 3.4 pounds, began her vaccinations, and has been scheduled for her spay surgery on Monday, December 15. Once spayed, she if available for adoption and can be picked up that afternoon from Pet Helpers by her new family, come back to foster while we search for her new home, or if a potential adopter wants to adopt her and have us keep her in foster until a particular date (Christmas, for instance), we will be happy to arrange for that as well. Tori's new family will need to be human guardians that are wanting an entertaining and playful kitten in their life, but one that likes to also sleep at the foot of your bed or on the couch next to you. She is a bit talkative, but typically she waits for you to start the conversation.
For the present time, we have both felines available for adoption, but it may be best for Indigo to not have another home disruption for a couple of weeks. If anyone is interested in adopting fun-loving Tori, please do not hesitate to contact Adoption Charleston Cats by email, the contact form found on our home page, or through Facebook. You may also contact Pet Helpers, but it is our intention that Tori will not be on the adoption floor and she will stay with us until adopted. Meet and greets can be arranged. In the meantime, be sure to check out Tori's page here on our website for more details and pictures.
Let's get Tori home for the holidays as well as all the other cats and kittens ready and waiting in Charleston County shelters and foster care!
Until next time, may your life be filled with purrfect days and furry friends.
