It's hard to believe I'm actually typing this entry - but yes, Rascal has been adopted and will be going to his new forever home tomorrow.

In a few more weeks it would have been 6 months since he came to stay with us. How I have grown to love and adore him in that time, and how I really agonized over whether to even seriously entertain this family as a possible forever one. But in meeting them, all of the excuses, reasonable doubt, and mental roadblocks I put up in the path of his being adopted, would not be able to declare victory. This family are everything I could have hoped for in a forever one for our little boy, and although I am deeply saddened at the prospect of bidding him goodbye, I'm also of the firm belief that he couldn't be going to a nicer, more responsible, more kitty cat loving environment if I had handpicked them myself.

So tonight's bedtime snuggles will be the last for he and I. By this time Tuesday, he will be finally settling in to his own home where he will be loved and treasured and have his very own family. And I in turn will be once again be setting the wheel in motion to see who needs our help next......

I believe that everything happens for a reason.


  1. Good. Maybe you can talk about something other than this cat and chin acne. I heard from your rescue that you threw a temper tantrum, and bailed out on them and aren't fostering anymore. Who are you kidding?

  2. Oh Beki as always, I'm delighted when people stop by, take the time to read my blog and are kind enough to leave comments.

    Thanks a bunch!

  3. Some people who want to be anonomous just come on here to share their hate for the world. What a sad life they must be living.

  4. my goodness Beki !
    what a truly sad, sorry individual you must be to you have so much anger in you !! What happened to make you into a nasty, mean-spirited bully ?? Do you really loathe yourself that much ? Is it because you are grossly overweight and feel that no one loves you ?? I pity people such as yourself; you have no friends and are just worthless. Why don't you get psychiatric help so you can channel all your anger at yourself into something worthwhile, such as getting a life? love, Cheryl and the world

  5. Oh LisaMarie... what a both wonderful and heartbreaking day at the same time. I am so happy for both Rascal and yourself that he's found the perfect family. I hope that knowing he's going to such a great home will ease the sadness of him leaving for you. I know how hard it is when they go - each of my fosters takes a piece of my heart with them.

  6. Hey, look, SafeHaven, you've got trolls! I love public displays of mental illness.

    It's a free world. Don't like it, don't read it. Or write your own and let us know where it is, so we can critique you. Hehehe.

    Congratulations on Rascal's adoption, you'll miss him but I bet you found him the best home possible.

    Cheers, Anonymouse.

  7. LM I'm so happy and sad at the same time!!!
    What a bittersweet moment.... I hope the adopters are as wonderful to Rascal as you were...
