It's a boy! [Nov. 14th, 2005|04:19 pm]

Yesterday we went out to the MetroWest Humane Society and ended up going home with this guy:

He hasn't told us his name yet, but he's got the largest paws I've seen in a very long time. He's also friendly, calm, and playful. He spent most of the past 24 hours hiding in different parts of the house (including having to be pulled out from inside the couch), but doesn't mind sitting with us (or on us) and came out and curled up on the bed for a little while during the night. We'll let you know his name. In the meantime, he does well with people; interested parties should contact us to find out when visiting hours are.

Edit: For those interested, MetroWest currently has about 100 cats and kittens (too cute!), and are effectively out of room. They are in the middle of a much needed expansion project, and can use donations of money, food, or willing homes for needy animals. We say several wonderful animals there, including a 6 year old girl who was remarkeably mild and started purring almost as soon as she was picked up. I highly recommend that anyone looking for a cat, or jsut looking to do some Good Works check them out.

We went out of our way to find an animal in need. Between the SCA, asdr83 being a vet student, and other places there are plenty of animals going across our inboxes, but we knew they would find homes. So we went looking at shelters, even though they cost money, because - to paraphrase you, that's a Good Thing. We also wanted to make sure we went to a no-kill shelter. Imagine our pleasant surprise when it turned out that all the shelters in our area are no kill.

Actually my discount is such that those fees probably wouldn't have been much more than the shelter fees, but this was still better.

You're right about the important part: who cares about the money? Look at that guy!
