Physical - Check

Our Older Wiser Cat - Boo

Little Lucy

Mark another item off the list of things to do for adoption. Tomorrow, I will be taking my cats in for thier physicals and shots. We have to provide proof that they have their shots up to date, and I think they will both need a few. I know that they are not going to be happy. I decided to do them both in one visit, however, I only have one cat carrier, so it's going to be interesting to say the least. I think we will need to put the younger of the two in the carrier, and hold the other more docile kitty. Tonight, I will spend the night combing the mats out of Boo's hairs. Since he's gotten older he spends much more time rolling on his back. I can't keep up with the mess he makes of his hair. He never used to have such problems, but I guess sleep is more important to my old little man.

About this Time Last Year

It was about this time last year that we decided to adopt through foster care and got our orientation information. It's hard to imagine that it was a year ago, because it feels like yesterday. Time is just flying by these days. I continue to look on the adoption website for waiting children in my state, and I feel sad for all the children who were there when I began looking and are still waiting. It's unimaginable to me that a child should have to wait so long for a loving family of thier own. My heart goes out to them.
