We have an "interloper"

Mom came into the house yesterday with a carrier that had "someone" in it......we could smell him...but didnt get to meet him.

Mom told us that he is just a foster! He was an owner surrender at the shelter where mommy takes pictures of the animals in need of new homes. And his picture went all around and a super nice cat lady in colorado wanted to adopt him. So mommy went down to "adopt" him (adoption fees for adult cats right now is only $9)...and she brought him home.

He's living in our human brudders we can smell him thru the door but thats it.

Mom took him to our vet today for his free shelter exam. he's healthy and his FeLV/FIV test is negative, so mom says if we are fostering him for a longer period we might get to meet him face to face.  We met him briefly, while he was in his crate, then he went back into his room.

I (Blossom) hissed at him while he was in his crate and he hissed back just once...but that was all. Mom put him back into his room and now we dont care!!

We think he's ok...

You're very nice to let the little guy stay with you for a bit. SOME of us *cough* *grr and cocoa* *cough* aren't very nice about having new kitties around. We're so happy he's getting a Forever Home!!!

We think that Luther is a very cute interloper and we are so glad your Mom was able to pull him from that shelter!

Wow, we think you're nice to let him stay too, even for just a while.

What totally floors our mom is the low adoption free shelter exam. Good grief! The lowest adoption fee around here is $125 and that includes spay/neuter, both sets of shots plus rabies, and microchipping. Don't think any area shelter actually tests for FeLV/FIV -- at least no one used to. BTW, our city shelter's adoption fee is significantly higher than the $125 and they don't automatically spay/neuter at all. We're living in the freakin' dark ages here.

Anyway, we certainly wish your foster a long and happy life in his forever home!
