Wow, where do I begin? Suddenly I am no longer known as Armani~adoptable~….. But as Armani~ADOPTED~ Not too sure about this, as I have been with my foster mom for the first four years of my life and my world as I knew has just been rocked.
A knock late one night on foster mom’s door led to us meeting. I had been transported quite a ways to the town she lives in to be placed in a temporary foster home only to discover that there had been a mix-up and there was no actual foster home for my siblings and I. Later that night, my new foster mom’s agreement to, “Oh sure, they can stay here for one night until this is worked out”, led to her becoming known as a ‘long-term’ foster home as each of us had many obstacles to overcome before we could find our forever homes. My fur-sis, Prada, and my bestest buddy and bro-fur, Gucci, eventually found their forever homes, I however did not.
Listed as ‘special’ and ‘needy’ and ‘no small children’ kept me low on Petfinder’s radar list of potential adopters. Time went by, years went by with still nobody suitable interested in me. Then suddenly a nice family accidentally came across my Petfinder page/bio, they read all about me and decided that they could offer me a loving and forever home! Mom awoke to an e-mail message and phone message left by my now new family on June 28th. Excitement at first, both foster mom and my new family experienced ‘cold feet’ and tried to back out.. but that wasn’t meant to be!
On July 2nd my Auntie K and foster mom took me on a road trip to go check out my potential new home and family and they adopted me that day!
My new mom, Elaine, reports that I’ve already met my new doc and, other than my Polycythemia condition, that I am a healthy boy. She’s been instructed to bring me in for a check up at least every 6 months, along with doing the weekly dehydration test. I have a new Norwegian Forest Cat brofur, that looks a lot like my real brofur Gucci, and a new tortie sisfur. I think they like me!! ~purrs~
Hugs & Love,
~not adoptable because I’ve found my forever home at last~
