Just to let people know -- THE CAT'S BEEN ADOPTED!!!!
She and a lovely young lady fell in love on Saturday, and they called me today to let me know that puss cat has found a forever home. Yaaaaaaaay! Thanks for all the help!
BTW, if you ever need to board a cat in Colorado, The Cat House
in Campion (just south of Loveland) is truly wonderful. All the cats seem happy and content. They cared for the cat in just about the same way I would have if I'd been able to board her at home. The ladies also shouldered the burden of vetting possible adopters for the kitty, which I didn't expect, bless 'em, and they're the ones who walked me through putting an ad in the local papers, which is how our little foster cat's new mum came to find out about her.
Thank goodness there's still wonderful pet lovers out there! I hope kitty has a long and loving life with her new mommy!
