Mako was adopted this past Monday evening. He did much better with this meet n' greet, even allowing his new Mom to pet him abit prior to leaving which is a big deal when you are afraid and nervous as he was.

If I'm being honest, I'd say that I didn't like Mako's new Mom at all. She was rude, condescending, and obnoxious during our meet n' greet - a real know it all. She is however a serious cat lover who I'm completely confidant will take incredibly good care of our boy.............if there had been even one smidgen of doubt in my mind; believe me, it would have been so easy to turn her away. But I learned a long time ago that I don't have to like adopters, I just have to know that they will take good care of our fosters. In this instance, that was the case 100%.

I've already received updates, and Mako is doing really well - that's all that really matters and all I truly care about.


Then on Tuesday night we welcomed this little girl.........

A approximately 6 year old purebred Lilac Point Siamese - sadly, found wandering the streets. We've named her Aico and although she's been a little nervous since arriving, she is as gentle and sweet as she is beautiful. This is our first time with a purebreed cat (with the exception of our boy the Maine Coon we foster a while back) and Siamese are as exotic looking as they are interesting behaviour wise.

I'll have better pictures shortly, but trust me when I tell you that we shan't have this baby long - purebreds are VERY popular!


  1. We are glad Mako found a forever home. In a perfect world you would have also loved the adopter but you are so wise in admitting you don't have to love them, but rather must be certain that Mako and the others, will be well loved and taken care of by them :) Aico is beautiful. Hopefully she will find her forever home just in time for the holidays!

  2. LM - we are so happy that Mako has found his great new forever home ... we truly understand where u r coming from with the adopters though ... and as u say, it is all about the kitty being loved, wanted and cherished and you of all people would know this best. Little Aico looks so sweet. Looking forward to hearing all about her adventures at Safe Haven !!

  3. I agree.. and how nice she sent you an update.. with that kind of attitude you would have thought she would have skipped that part.. in truth, you really never know about people
