Our new family member --

It's been such a busy week, I haven't had time to post.  I'm working on the final for my pastels class, I started a watercolor class, and I've been spending time with the little kitty.  Yesterday, she had to go back to the shelter to be spayed, and she was supposed to stay there after that and be put up for adoption.



We were at the point where we really wanted to keep her, but in the fostering agreement I signed, it said that foster parents are discouraged from adopting their animals.  I tried to talk to the volunteer director when I brought the kitty in, but she wasn't there that day.  I was so nervous that she'd be put into the kennels for adoption and someone would snap her up . . . so I was there first thing in the morning today, begging to talk to her . . . .  And she said, of course you can have her, that's in the agreement because some people foster six kittens and then say they want to keep all of them.

So she's home, her new home.  She seems to not be suffering ill effects from the surgery -- she's been playing up a storm, enjoying the new toys I got her to celebrate her new status.  And a nice soft pillow for her to sleep on.  Little Buttercup is ours!

Oh congratulations!!!! I'd never be able to foster animals - i'd keep them all (i'm probably one of those folks they wrote that clause for!) ha!

wonderful for all of you!

Yes, she said some people want to keep every animal they foster. We've had kittens before, and dogs for overnights, and we've always brought them back, so I think we were cool.

Thanks for the visit, Elise! I really like the look and the tones of your edit here! That's a very nice texture! And I'm so happy to hear that Buttercup is now yours! She looks happy, and it sounds like you are, as well!! You have a great weekend! :)

What a little treasure! I can image it would not be easy to part with her, so pleased you could keep her!

She's very sweet!! I would have had a hard time letting her go too.
