Home for the Holidays - weekend 2

Something in my heart broke yesterday when I heard the news that elementary school children were massacred in Connecticut. My prayers are with all those who are hurting as a result of this horrid act.

Hershey is once again at the Home for the Holidays adoption event! Everyone told me he would be much less stressed on his second weekend and guess what? They were right! He's much more relaxed and himself, which is so lovely. Seeing him less stressed has made me much less stressed too.

He has a new neighbor for this weekend, Oski, a gorgeous tabby. I very much feel in love with this little guy's coloring and his personality is amazingly sweet! He's less than a year old and very cuddly. Laura held him for awhile and was tempted to take him home! No more cats!

The star attraction of the night was Nick, a seven week old tiny kitten. He was rescued from the street at 4 weeks of age and given to one of the CCC volunteers, who is now doing an amazing job raising him. When he's old enough he'll be available for adoption too!

Hershey is once again spending the night in his cage. Hopefully Saturday will be his day to go to his new forever home! Giving him up will be hard but I do know it is ultimately the best for him. He will be a great blessing for someone.

And, for some really exciting news. I won a give-away from Cat Chat a little bit ago, something I really, really wanted, so I'm thrilled to have won!! And the item arrived yesterday! I can't wait to try it out, it'll be so much fun. You'll just have to wait to see what it is!

Theo guards the new fun mystery item!

    Good luck Hershey - we know your family is out there looking for you. And both of those kittens are adorable.
