We will defnately adopt again from the Humane society as they do their best with the animals to find homes. They take good care of the animals etc. this was just an unfortunate situation and in the end Knitty kitty had a home till her end. She was such a lovely and well natured cat considering her previous street straying, who knows, maybe an uncaring owner just dumped her. We will take a break and check out their cats at the Society again and most likely an older cat. thank you again for your words of kindness and your own stories about your pets.

So sorry for the loss of Knitty Kitty. I know it hurts, even though you only had her for a short time.

We adopted a kitten that someone abandoned in our neighborhood. Shortly afterwards, we found out that he had feline leukemia, and we had to quarantine him from our other three cats (who never went outside) until they got their leukemia vaccinations. We kept him in our bedroom, with the TV on Animal Planet for him when we weren't home.

He was the sweetest little guy, named Tom. When his quarantine was over, we let him get to know his sister cats, and he fell madly in love with one of them. They played and played, and played until he exhausted himself. We had to have him put down, but he had a nice life for the short time he was with us, and we like to think he died happy.
