Animals for adoption

September 2, 2010 - Jennifer Brookens

Fake purrs from one, hisses from under our bed and a big white puffball -despite his constant yowling complaints - keeps finding his way under my feet and covering my work clothes with cat hair.

Yes the infamous Tacky ("Fatty") and Pepe are here again. And this time to stay, more or less.

With my mom's constant travels, she has realized that her attention-hungry cats need more companionship. In good faith, and knowing these cats as well as I do, I couldn't just let her give them up to the pound without trying to find them a good home on our own first. My husband said we could maybe take one. But both, along with our own neurotic cat, is just too much.

So one is up for adoption.

We love all three - all neutered and declawed - but three cats, two kids... it's just too much for this busy family. I've posted the one up for adoption up to my circle of friends, but haven't had the heart to just put it out there for all - because I just don't want to chance it going to a family that will neglect, abuse or worse.

As a sidenote, one of my co-workers, Megan Alexander, is facing a similar dilemma with rabbits. But I get the feeling she's not as sentimental about the rabbits. So the past few days in the newsroom has been more like an animal adoption clinic... And if you know of anyone... anyone... Well, shoot us an e-mail (posted on our blogs) and we'll be in touch with details.
