It's also a very special transport because my foster kitten, Sebastian, is on board! He has been the cutest little bundle of joy in my bathroom for the past couple weeks and I'm going to miss him for sure, but he is going to the BEST mom and I know she'll keep us all updated with pictures and stuff! So that's wonderful!
The kitties are heading from Florida to Virginia today with Cutehead Michele C. (who is also Sebastian's new mom!) and they'll stay at her house tonight and tomorrow night. Then they get up bright and early on Saturday and do the rest of their trip!
So let's meet the lucky kitties that our Cute Transport Network is driving, shall we?
|Sebastian in my lap. I'm going to miss this boy!|
Sebastian was saved from Broward Animal Control. He was the last of his litter and terrified in the shelter. Now he's an absolute lovebug though, who likes to give kisses, cuddle in your lap and purr like crazy. He also likes to "herd" all his toys into his bed and sleep with them. So cute!
Captain Jack the Pirate Cat
|Captain Jack, talking... as usual.|
Captain Jack has been living with his foster dad, Cutehead Kyle S., for about a month now, and today is his big day! Captain Jack meows a lot. And loud. Like, really loud. Maybe because he can't hear himself? He also purrs really loud and is just a super sweet kitty!
|Captain Black at foster Emily O.'s house.|
Captain Black was a shelter favorite and they begged us to help him get out. He's a huge love, but just has a couple small issues. He needs to eat special food because he has urinary tract issues and he walks like a little bit of a funny walk due to an old injury (he's not in any pain, just walks with swagger). He is also going to Safehollow where they will find him the best and most perfect new home!
|The picture that made us all fall in love with cross-eyed George.|
George has been with Cutehead Carie P. and her family as their foster for a few weeks, and he is a great cat! He is super friendly and super cute -- and his new mom is going to super love him!
Laura had actually first seen George's picture and commented that if he was a female, she would love him. One of our volunteers remembered seeing a female ginger at the shelter, and posted her picture on that thread... and the rest is history! She is going to live a great life in Boston.
Audrey is a very pretty girl and I'm so glad we could help her get home also!
|Bernadette snuggled up.|
She is a diabetic kitty and is going to HART of Maine shelter in Maine (one of our favorite partners!). We're picking her up in New York and helping her get there!
Thelma and Louise
|Thelma and Louise|
Lucky for them, Toni S. in New Jersey saw their story and stepped up to be their real forever home, and we're going to give them a ride to her!
