This week our Charleston Animal Society kitten, Taffy, was made available for adoption and was quickly selected by a wonderful family. It happened within a matter of hours - not days, weeks, or months. We are so happy Taffy did turn out to be FIV negative and could move on to a home where she will live with 2-year old, Zoey (as of the end of the week, the two are playing together). Taffy's one very fortunate kitty. The house hasn't been the same since her departure on Tuesday evening - we're back to the laid back lifestyle of having one adult foster cat.
Hamster seemed to miss Taffy for three days with each day's passing becoming a little easier. He had grown accustomed to "playing footsies" under the door as a regular morning routine. His first morning without Taffy, he sat in her room and cried loudly. The second and third days the meows continued, but for a shorter duration each subsequent day.
As for the foster humans, the house has not been the same without cute and silly Taffy. There's nothing like playing with a kitten. We did pack up some of her favorite toys to go home with her, and her new family has already shared a video of her fetching skills with a favorite "fish". We miss her running through the house, over the furniture, and hanging out with us on the sofa, but we know she will be well cared for and have a happy life with her new family. Congratulations, baby Taffy, and I look forward to getting to watching you growing up thanks to social media.
Meanwhile, Hamster continues to wait for his forever family. While he waits, he is being cared for and spoiled rotten. He deserves it after all ~ the first years of his life were obviously not optimal for any animal. He's a true joy and is loved very much, but we know he would like to move to his forever home so he could get settled and know the love of life-time commitment. When he finds his forever home, we will miss him dearly. As I type this week's blog, he is beside me on the couch, sleeping and snoring. If you haven't heard his snoring yet, please click on his tab above to find and listen to a common occurrence with this cool cat.
