Oliver's New Home & Tombo Haz a Sad


Last night Oliver went to a home with two young people. They already had a 1 year old; they are hoping that Oliver will help teach him better catly ways, and be a companion. I admit I was *very* nervous about potential adopters but honestly I was quite impressed. And when it comes to cats and humans, especially young ones, I am NOT easily impressed. Paranoid would be more accurate. I think he will be pleased to be alpha cat in his new home. There were too many ahead of him here.

It was always intended that he be found a permanent home. It just got easy to keep putting that off, but with the out of state move looming, it became imperative. I considered seriously taking him myself, but I just don't have the financial resources right now. And although I liked him, we just never quite connected, not like I did with Sarah and Raji, and Tombo. Had one of them been available, no one else on earth would have gotten them. I feel kind of guilty about that.

Now, poor Tombo LOVES his cats. So he was not happy to lose one of them. He's already having a rough time with some health issues, including a paw sprain that happened yesterday. Being old is just not easy.

Tomorrow morning Mattise goes under for his dental and extractions.
Please keep him in your prayers.

  2. There is a time to hold on and a time to let go. We have no doubt you did the right thing.

    We here have all came to this forever home from elsewhere. We are happy. Trust that Oliver has the same joy...

  9. Oh Tombo darling. How did you do that? But regardless I hope it heals quickly. I have strong feelings too about adoptions. I made a comment in I Have Three Cats about the topic but I didn't go off course (for once) and go into detail.
