Here's one last look at two super fabulous girls who'll soon be starting their new lives. As happy as I am that they've found homes with people who love them, I'm almost sad that I won't get a chance to see them again.
One-year-old Eva is a soon-to-be alumna of our New York Avenue shelter. She seems to know how photogenic she is. When I held up the camera, I'm almost sure she purposely struck a pose. Once in a while she'd turn her head to show her best angles. She also purred non-stop.
A nice family found Eva as a stray and kindly took her in; unfortunately they didn't feel ready for the responsibility of living with a pet. But thanks to them, she stayed warm and dry through last week's rain. And with her glamorous looks and sweet personality, it's no surprised that someone fell for her within days after her arrival.
Five-month-old Darla is an almost-graduate from our Georgia Avenue shelter. She might be the coolest looking dog I've ever seen - and she's as talented as she is adorable! Last week, after my clicker training lesson from Expresso, I practiced what I learned on Darla. I couldn't believe how good she is at catching airborne treats.
Congrats to Eva's and Darla's new families - and to Spider's, too! I didn't see much of Spider during my volunteer shift last Thursday. He spent the whole, entire evening curled up on one visitor after another's lap! This little guy had been trapped in a vacant apartment until animal control officers came to his rescue - which might explain his persistence at getting prospective adopters' attention.
On my way out, I learned that his new person had already filled out an adoption application for another cat. But after meeting Spider, she just had to invite him to join their growing household. If Spider had been on your lap, I'm not sure you could have made any other decision. By the way, many of Spider's friends are still looking for homes. Please come see them at either of our shelters!
