Hobbit - update

I took Hobbit to my vet to have her checked out and get a combo test. She is very healthy and combo was negative! My vet pulled some strings and got her accepted by a small rescue organization (no-kill). They have 2 more kittens of about the same size and they will be fostered together until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered and adopted.

I was somewhat torn about this, but he assured me that they have a very good reputation and have strict screening criteria for potential adopters. The main thing that made me decide to give her to them, rather than try a little longer to find a home myself was that she would be living with 2 other kittens. She was really too lonely here, all alone in the room for the vast majority of the time. Also, this way she will definitely be spayed.

This is a small local organization and they told me they would update me on her progress. I am hoping for the best for her. This was not an easy decision at all and even now I'm second guessing myself. I wish I could have done better for her and found a home that I knew for sure was a good one, but I hope she is better off today than she was a week ago. I tried to do what I thought gave her the best chance to have a happy life and I hope is was enough...

Thank you for everybody's support and suggestions.

It sounds like that was a good idea to do that for Hobbit. You can always check on her and see how she is doing. She will be happier with some company. Have a great week end.

Willow and I are glad that Hobbit will be living with 2 other kittens. My Lap Lady was surprised by how much Hobbit looks like her daughter's cat, Alice, when she was a kitten!

Purrrrrrrrrs, China Cat

Don't second guess yourself. This sounds like a good move for everyone.

Hobbit should be happier with some company, both kittie and human. Is this place close enough you could just drop in on Hobbit once in a while?

We saw your comment on KC's blog and came over to check you out.

What a little doll Hobbit is! We think you've done the best for her, she needs to socialize not only with humans, but with her own species. She'll settle in and be playing in no time at all.

Paws crossed for her, as she gets bigger, is spayed, and finds--we hope--a wonderful forever home!

What a sweetheart Hobbit is. I have read all your posts about this cutie. You have tried hard to find a shelter or home for her and it sounds like your vet was a
God send for her. I wouldn't second guess yourself as they will keep you informed on her progress. It is so easy to get attached even for a very short time. God Bless you for trying so hard for Hobbit.
