A little soft paw and some tender, loving forehead rub will calm Connar right down and lull him into a blissful sleep. Have you ever seen anything more precious?
NOTE FROM CUTE: I have a little holiday miracle working for a beautiful black cat in a high-kill shelter in Georgia! If you've been following the Cute's Facebook page, you've seen that I've kind of become smitten with Kain, a big boy who the shelter director was begging someone to save. He is sweet and kind, and I hope we can get him out of there!
One look at his picture and I knew I had to try! So I've been sharing him and networking... and an angel in the form of an old high school friend's mom said she has a rescue in Georgia and she'd be willing to foster him! We've been working non-stop for almost two weeks getting the details together and it looks like he'll hopefully be saved!
Today Kain is going to the V-E-T to be combo tested for FIV and FeLV. If he does, she'll be able to pick him up right after Christmas (she's out of town and in Florida now). If not, she can't take him because she has no way to keep him separate from her other kitties.
Please think good thoughts for him that he tests negative for kitty cooties today! :)
Update: 12 noon - Argh. Kain tested positive for FIV. They said it was a "light test" and I'm not exactly sure what that means. FeLV was negative. I guess he will go back to the animal control now and hopefully we can figure something else out. Maybe they can re-test again later. Sometimes the tests are very sensitive, I guess. I'm so bummed, you guys! Anyone know of somewhere or someone that could take a gorgeous, big, wonderfully friendly "lightly" FIV+ cat?
Updated update: 12:45 pm - My friend said she'd live to try another cat from there since she was planning on taking in Kain and has the space! So... there is some good news. :) One lucky cat will still get a holiday miracle out of this!
