Silk is not anything if not off the charts sweet! In fact he's so affectionate, we need two more laps, two more sets of arms, and surely the ability to spend way more time with him just to be able to even touch the level of attention and affection that he craves. Although he's really not happy about sharing his space with Rocky and Silly, otherwise he's a little sweetheart.

No inquiries for him as of yet but it's okay because I personally love having another little fur friend that wants nothing more than to sit in my lap while I read.

Silk has been with us two weeks tomorrow, which in addition to showing just how fast time flies, also means that he can be added to the rescue site's adoption page because his two weeks of quarantine are officially up.

The great news is that he's taken on the nickname of Cuddle Bug and it fits him to a tee. The bad news is that he can't stand either of our boys and is super jealous sooooooo the quicker his forever home finds him, the happier everyone will be.

So this cutie is up for adoption as of tomorrow - anyone who passes him over because he's a senior is downright nuts; because he's off the charts loving and wants to spend all his time on your lap!

See for yourself...........

We haven't had a foster since early April when Clarence was adopted. Although I missed greatly having an extra kitty in the house, it's been wonderful devoting all our time to our two boys Rocky and Silly. Rocky continues to deteriorate but also continues to hang on; we are not anything but completely amazed at how he's strengthened and continues to fight.

On Thursday of this past week an email was waiting for me when I woke up at 4:00am, asking if we would be willing to help a senior boy. I checked with hubby of course but he knew once the words were out of my mouth that I already had my mind made up.

We picked up this gorgeous boy on Friday afternoon and have named him Silk. Approximately 10 years of age, he came into the city shelter as a stray. I may not know much but I've been in cat rescue long enough to know a stray cat when I see one and this fella is 100% not fitting that criteria. For one thing his coat is so soft that it feels as though it's just been shampooed and brushed - literally like silk (hence the name), and in a word, he's gorgeous and has clearly been very well taken care of.

I look at him and wonder, what happened? You've been adored by someone, somewhere, and yet here you are. We only hope that if it's a situation where his owner has passed away, they will now rest easy knowing that he's being well taken care of from here on in.

Meet Silk............

Clarence' new parents have been keeping in regular touch this first week post adoption, sharing pictures and stories to let us know how our boy is settling in. Every time I saw a new email come in, I held my breath somewhat fearing that there would be something negative within.

That was however until I received today's latest picture:

Yup, that looks like a match made in heaven if ever I've seen one!

I was shocked to receive the news earlier today that our former foster Oscar (previously called Quincy), died a couple of weeks ago after a brief fight with renal lymphoma. His Mom wrote to let us know and since I had just heard from her afew months ago when she wrote to share an update and pictures of how happy and great Oscar was doing, it was a real jolt to hear this sad development.

"M" had adopted him only a couple of years ago and he wasn't that old, which makes it that much sadder. As I got over my shock, I immediately then gave thanks that this beautiful boy hadn't died alone on the city streets nor in a cold, metal cage. He had been loved and cared for and was adored - although his remaining time here was short, it was lovely we think.

A beautiful collage was shared of some of the nicest shots of Oscar so I'm sharing it here so you too can see why everyone should adopt and not shop.

Rest easy sweetheart and give my love to my own kids who are there to greet you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.....

I've been super concerned about Clarence all night. Not that I doubted "M" and her husband wouldn't be kind and good to our boy, but it's the usual nerves and worries that come with fostering and then having to let go. Needless to say I was super anxious to hear this morning how the remainder of yesterday and more importantly, overnight had gone for Clarence and his new family.

This is what I got email wise just afew mins ago.............

Evidently a new favorite chair for a new boy with a new name - he'll now be called Panda Bear by his family "Panda" for short.

We'll miss you sweetheart but we're so totally overjoyed to see you so happy already.

Happy Forever After!!!!

Right now Clarence is settling into a new home - yes that's right, our darling sweetheart finally had an adoption call that has worked out!! Mandy came over earlier today to meet him and we were pleasantly surprised at how friendly Clarence was with her. He stayed around and even went over for petting and chin scratches at one point. Her and her husband are retired and have all the time in the world to dedicate to our handsome friend.

So after 4 months waiting in a shelter and 4 months here at Safe Haven, we are delighted to see Clarence have a home of his very own.

A wonderful way to end the Easter weekend!
