Second Step Successful

Things are going well. I met the foster lady and Herman this morning. The foster lady thinks that I just might be the perfect match for Herman. Most important is that Herman likes me. The foster lady says that he is a bit shy and not very trusting of people, but he came right out to meet me. I did have a small bowl of tuna in my hands, but the foster lady says that he doesn't often come right out to meet someone. Herman let me pet his back while he ate his tuna, then he went back to his safe spot for a minute. I crouched right down and just stayed still and he came back out, sniffed my fingers and gave one of them a little lick, then rubbed his chin up against my fingers for some scritches, which I gave him. He talked to me a bit, too. He is unhappy. His tail was droopy the entire time. I so much want to give him a home and make him happy. Now I just have to get through the screening process. The foster lady said that they probably would want to know how I would take care of him, so I am off to learn as much about feline leukemia and FIV as I can.

I am finding it very hard to concentrate on limericks for some reason. Grin. I will get back to them once this is resolved and I find out whether Herman will be coming to live with me or not. Right now, I am too excited and nervous to be able to do them justice.

Karen Jo, we are so excited for you. We know you will be the purrfect home for Herman. We will be purring that the process is a short one, and that Herman will soon be in his new home.

Also, thank you for stopping by and leaving your condolences when Jade went to the bridge. We really appreciate all our friends purrs, etc. We know they made her journey a peaceful one.

It is so much fun to follow your adoption process. I think I am almost as excited as you. It sounds like you are a great match for Herman. Be sure to let them know that you would keep Herman 100% indoors (unless you are going to get a harness and leash or a stroller or an enclosure for temporary, supervised outdoor visits).

We just caught up about Herman, and all we can say is 'Awesome!'

You'll be a great cat mother, and it sounds like you and Herman are a purrfect match. We'll purr for a smooth and speedy adoption process for both of your sakes.
