12/1/16
How on earth is it December already? Tomorrow is Eve's birthday, and then Tesse's, and Jay's, and then it's Christmas and New Year's and 2017 already.

I did mention that I'm fostering another kitty, right? Two days before I left for PA, I got a call from someone who was given my name by one of the local rescues as being the cat woman. Long story short, his daughter up and moved away and abandoned her three dogs and her cat. So the rescue took in the dogs and I took in the cat. He's all white, and naemd Jasper. He is not a friendly guy. For the past two weeks, I had him in the guest room on his own - all attempts to pet him or bring other cats into the room were met with hisses and scratches. But he'd calm down with the offer of treats, and would - rarely - let me skritch his head while eating treats. So last night, I bribed him with treats and while he was eating them I wrapped him in a blanket and swooped him into the master bedroom, where the scaredycats (Toby, Claude, Rocky, Miss Mona and sometimes Mr. Adams) live. He was feisty and snarly for a while, and I guess he fell asleep on the bathroom counter. Well, this morning I woke up and he was curled in a ball on my bed. And he let me pet him. And he purred. Perhaps he realized that he hit the cat lottery. There's hope that he may become social enough to find a home for after all.

Checked in on my crew at PetSmart (I've been doing laundry for the rescue so I pop in every other day), they're still looking adorable and waiting to be adopted. I know it's the right thing, to lower the cat census in my house so I can do things like foster Jasper, but it hurts me to let them go!
