As some of you have read, in March 2011, we took in our first foster animals. And we've had a few here and there ever since. I thought it might be nice to have a yearbook of House of Carnivores Alumni, and a description of where they went, if known.
When I heard that there were six cats that needed quarantine, I quickly talked Jeff into taking two of them. I went to the shelter early one Sunday afternoon in March 2011, and chose Patches as one of the two.
Patches is a great cat. He's friendly, talkative, a little bit bossy, and loves other cats. I thought I was going to be sad to see him go, but his situation is the best that I could have ever asked for... he went to live with my Mother-in-law. So I know he's in a good home, I know he's happy, I get frequent updates, and I even get to see him sometimes!
The quarantine ran out in September, and we continued to foster him until his adoption in November 2011. I did get one update from his adopter, and it sounds like Mitch has settled into his new home well, gets along with the resident cat, and is very happy. Even if I never do get to see him again, just knowing that he went to a home where he is loved and enjoyed makes me happy. My job is done, and I can feel satisfied.
