Orli Euphoria

Orli, current record-holder of lengthy-stay at Foster-Mum's has a home!!! At last! Is there such a thing as quiet euphoria? Because it seems like we're overwhelmed, happy, relieved, anxious all at once. And tired - it's a high-strung business to be chaperoning potential adopters - due to our low success rate. Now, after waiting for nearly 16 months, Orli has finally gone home with Theresa today, just after noon on ---- well yesterday now. Unlike other visitors - he had a grand total of about 8 enquiries and 3 visits, Orli got himself acquainted with Theresa's shoes immediately - he usually needs a bit of warming up. A good sign, I thought then, but then the previous Sunday, he had good rapport with his potential little lady too, but the family, a good one I might add, went home with a tabby girl. I had no idea how good that sign really was. But given that it's not unusual for potential visitors to leave with another cat instead, btmao and I maintained our usual cautious optimism. Theresa hung out with him, and the other cats in the cattery. And she decided on Orli! Being the good boy that he is, he walked into the carrier himself and settled down - no panic, no histrionics, and certainly no drama-queenness. As of evening, he has decided under Theresa's bed is a great place to be. Hopefully, he will overcome his shyness soon. Orli's adoption gives us MUCH hope for Booties, Timmy and Frankie, who've also been waiting for more than a year, and Angel, who's still missing a home after 4 months, unlike her babies. I need sleep now, but before that, it'll be a great pleasure to move Orli from the "In The Market For a Home" section on the homeseekers' page to the "NO LONGER SEARCHING - HOME IS WHERE THE KNEADING IS" section. After the little death, we shall think about adoption notices for Booties, Timmy, Frankie, Angel, and the Wunder Duo: Izzy and Samia - Meet our homeseekers - Check out the purrsNswipes Adoption Guidebook - Go to Pawprints: TLC for cat minon requisite education
