I have had a nice day. The biggest news is that Kay brought us a cat to foster and see if she will fit into our family so we can adopt her. She is a mostly white calico and very lovely and I have named her Calliope. At the moment she is a bit shy, but she is friendly and I am hoping that when she gets used to three dogs and when Thackeray and Laoise decide she is fine, we can adopt her. I think she is wonderful! Gary came over and solved a few of my minor electrical problems and we are trouble shooting another. After that, I squared all four quilts in this set and I also cut the bindings and sewed them so maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to finish them. But not now. The day has ended and time to feed us all.

  1. How exciting! I hope Thackeray and Laoise like Calliope.

    This might be a dumb question but what exactly is the process for adopting a cat? Would you just call Kay to tell her that Calliope has a permanent home or do you actually have to fill out paperwork and stuff?

    I know here in Toronto our animal shelters are a little picky about who is allowed to adopt pets. I think you have to already have a family veterinarian, possibly give a few personal references and answer some questions about how you plan to look after your new dog or cat. šŸ™‚

  2. Thanks Lydia and it isn’t a dumb question at all. Vashon Island Pet Protectors has a rigorous application process including home visit and references, etc. In this case I think it will probably be just calling Kay and sending in a check, simply because I am so well known to VIPP. I adopted Oliver from them at my vet’s recommendation (well insistence) and I have been donating heavily to VIPP because of Kay’s generous volunteering to come twice/day for nearly a year for Sasha so she knows our whole family very well. So as long as Calliope likes us as well as I like her and as long as the others in my fur family like her, she’s ours!
