December is usually our slowest time of year. We scramble for foster homes as our devoted fosterers take a break from their fostering duties to travel for the holidays. And usually there is very little interest in adoptions this time of year.
Something great happened this December -- you could call it a [insert your winter holiday of choice here] miracle. EIGHT kitties found new homes. Yes, readers, if I were more on the ball I would have made this post on the eighth night of Hanukkah! But better late than never.
The starring lineup is:
Octavia and Livia: two of our many current kittens, together!
Grady: whose adopter recently lost an elderly ill kitty.
Shy Paulina, picked out of the Nursing Home colony at 62 and Dorcester: whose adopters asked us to suggest a kitty we had a hard time placing.
Jojo: who got his very own 12 year old boy for Christmas.
Ellison: A 'foster failure' case with a new kittysister.
Paxton, the cat who beat the odds.
and Clark whose adopter and boyfriend TNRed a cat with our help months ago, and so that good deed came back to us when it came time for her to adopt her own kitty.
