After a week of posting my kittens on Craig's List and screening and conversing with potential adopters, I found good homes for Basil, Elmo and Gilly! It was an emotional rollercoaster as it always is. I am incredibly grateful that some kind people opened their hearts to these little ones, but I cried my eyes out before and after the adoptions. I get so attached, and I know that there is never a 100% guarantee that they will be safe and loved forever like they would if they were with me. But since I can't have a gazillion cats of my own, I have to trust my instincts and know that I did my best to ensure their health and care. Elmo and Gilly got to stay together and went to a nice family of 5. They also have 2 rescue dogs, so the kittens will have lots of activity and attention. Basil went to a sweet young couple who wanted a black kitty very badly. He is THE sweetest little boy ever, so I know they are going to love him like crazy.
More good news....my little orange bobtail girls are going to Atlanta next week! I am driving them to Good Mews, the amazing no kill shelter that I have mentioned before. I can't tell you how excited I am that GM is able to take them in!
After that, I am going to hibernate for a few months and focus on my artwork. I REALLY need to produce some special work for the ACC show in March, and my heart and soul need an emotional break from fostering for awhile. I think my tear ducts are almost empty!!! I will still be doing some feral cat spay/neuter in December to ensure that fewer kittens will be born in the spring.
I'll be posting about a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale in my Etsy shop soon, so check back in!
