Kitten Adoption Bonanza: And then there were four..



So while my friend J. was off pressing organic apples into cider (something I'd sure love to do), somewhere off in sunny California,Izzy and I were stuck in front of City Hall, in sunny downtown Jersey City, attempting to find kind souls to adopt our kittens.

I crammed the Fang sisters into their cage which seems to be shrinking, plopped them onto Izzy's red wagon, and rolled them over to the event, meowing all the way.

We set up the cage, awaiting a larger one from the shelter and spent most of the day petting our kittens. There were 30 adorable kittens available. I think that the poor Fang sisters were over-looked by those attracted to some of the fancy-schmancy looking felines. As much as we love our Fang Sisters, they don't look pedigreed. But as I told Izzy, it's personality that matters most!




In the end, Tiger was adopted by a lovely neighborhood family and I will be happy to see her go to their home, where I know she will be well-cared for. Meanwhile, we are still seeking three more homes for her sisters.

I think you should convince your brother to let me have one.
