Rags to Riches Adoption

Last week I wrote about Blaze, the cat that was rescued by a good Samaritan when a group of kids tried breaking his legs.

Well, Tuesday night (July 2nd), Blaze was adopted!

He went from an abused street cat to a little girl’s best friend.  A family saw Blaze in Wayne on Sunday and fell in love with him.  He worked over his new forever family good, too!  Blaze made himself cozy in his new guardian’s lap and sat next to their little girl (her lap was too small for them).  That cat is going to be living in a nice neighborhood with a family that loves him to pieces.  Between Sunday and Tuesday, the little girl kept asking if they were going to pick up Blaze.  They will grow up together and be companions to each other.  And they will form a bond that is unique to a little girl and her favorite kitty.

Many tear-filled congratulations to Blaze!

I’ll miss him, but I’m so happy for him at the same time.  I knew once he had an opportunity to meet the public, he wouldn’t be staying long in START II’s care. 🙂

Farewell, Houdini!

Yes, Houdini was adopted over the weekend!!

He’s such an awesome cat and deserving of an equally awesome home.  I was so happy when I heard he was adopted.  Yet, sad at the same time.  I mean, you just can’t replace his level of awesomeness with a snap of a finger.  But it’s all good.  I know he’s better in a home.  We all knew he would charm the crowd, so to speak, once he was able to get into the room at Petsmart.  And he did.  Houdini worked his magic.  So much so, that he had several adoption applications on him!  Since he’s a little dominate around other cats, we thought he would do best in a home where he was the only kitty.

Houdini worked the crowd.  He wasn’t at Petsmart for more than 24 hours, either!  Rolled around on his back, invited belly rubs, and turned his new forever parents into mush. 🙂  I love that cat!  Many congrats, Houdini!!!

Houdini - now in a forever home!

Houdini – found a forever home!
