Oh no! I can't get the link to work. Suspect I'll have to try at work tomorrow. I really want to see such a cutie.

The vet says she's in good shape. He says she's a couple of weeks older than I thought--about 3 months. She sat on my lap in the livingroom for a little while this evening, and even purred a little. The other cats and the dogs didn't faze her. She's a really brave little girl.

Oh yea... She is a pretty one. (Finally got the link to work!) And what a brave girl. It sounds like she knows she's the queen of her house-to-be. Cool

Very brave if other cats and **gasp** dogs don't faze her calm a bit.

I've been exchanging emails all afternoon with a woman who is very interested in adopting Coco. If we can work out the vet work (spay, booster shots, etc.), Coco may have a home by Saturday.

Well, the potential adopter got cold feet, but I'm thinking that's for the best. Now we have plenty of time before the first March petfair to get her spayed, have booster shots, second worming, etc.

She's relaxing in the house more and more. Yesterday she even played with her schmousie while I watched her. Until now, she's only played with her toys on the down low, and kept very still when people were nearby. Baby steps.

So happy to hear Coco is relaxed enough to play with a schmousie where anyone could see her. That is progress. A little extra time with you won't hurt one bit, it will give her a chance to come into her own as a housekitty. I know the perfect person is out there waiting for her to be ready............

Coco was spayed yesterday, and recovered very quickly. I'm taking her to the Pet fair tomorrow, so she has a pretty good chance of being tucked in safe at her forever home by this time tomorrow.

Well, we had a good fair. Six dogs and puppies found their forever homes, but no kitties. We had some wonderful volunteers from the Springs area join us, and Coco sat with two cat savvy, gentle people and got some more social skills. When we got home, we found out that 3 different people called to ask if Coco was still available, but none of them drove out to Wag n Wash. She was happy to get back home and have a little treat and a late dinner.

It's early yet. She will definitely find her people. If the people who called didn't show up, that definitely means they weren't for her. I'm glad she got some socialization time.

Coco might not have found her forever home yet, but the socialization time is well spent. And you get to enjoy her company a bit longer.

We have 4 inquiries and 2 completed applications for Coco right now. Both apps are excellent, so I'll have to choose between them. We have an inquiry on Freddy too from a lady whose 18 year old tuxedo kitty passed away 3 weeks ago. She's not sure she's ready for another kitty yet, but she is attracted to his story, so he may have a home waiting too. In a week, we may have our bathroom back!

Well, we usually regain exclusive human use of the bathroom for at least a few days between kittens.

Coco is on her way to the fair right now. She got 4 good apps, and my very favorite family is supposed to be there to meet the van when it arrives. I will miss this little one, but she has a wonderful life ahead of her.

I know you'll miss her, but there'll be another lil sweetie needing your help soon. I hope Coco's new family gives us updates and pictures.

Coco went home today with my favorite of all the great folks that applied for her. Her new mom was waiting for the van to arrive, was very excited, helped unload, and may volunteer for SCARF in the future. I already got an email from her, and Coco has even purred for her, so she's obviously happy in her new home. One other kitten and 4 dogs/puppies went to their forever homes today too. A good fair!
