No this isn't Silk relaxing here with's Sully now - exactly 48 hrs post adoption, clearly totally loving his new home.

This is why we do this. This is why we rescue senior kitties from the shelter. This is why our home will always be a refuge for those who are abandoned for as long as we are able. This is why everyone should adopt and not shop.

We are so happy to be able to say that Silk has his forever family! The couple came on Saturday and although Silk didn't put his best welcoming self on (he was abit cranky), they loved him and very much want to welcome him into their home. They are very experienced cat owners and his new Dad showed me countless video's of their former kitties that he had on his phone - too sweet. Clearly they love kitties and Silk will be very well looked after by them.

He's not actually leaving us until this coming Friday so we have afew more days together which I'm secretly thrilled about. This is truly a happy ending for this senior boy who really needs a home without other kitties where he can truly be happy.

Thank you to everyone who leaves lovely comments - every single one is read and we are so grateful for the support.

We have a couple coming in a couple of hours to meet Silk. As always, it remains to be seen whether this is his forever family having finally found him but leading up to these meet n' greets one just never knows so we remain hopeful. I know I'm going to sound like a broken record here but I will so miss him. So cuddly and loving, he's gravitated toward me since I've spoiled and fussed over him (as I tend to do with fosters) but this is the nature of foster work and as I've said before, it remains a role that has both positives and difficulties.

What remains most important however is that he have his forever home and that we are able to then offer this same safe space to another who also needs that second chance. I remind myself of this constantly and also that nothing worth having is ever completely easy.
