I think this process is going to be a little longer than my patience would like.
We visited the cat shelter again on Sunday but, sadly, all the new cats were in pairs.
I saw the tiny little kittens (from the photograph below). A very tired mum and six gorgeous balls of fluff. As they all cuddled up for a sleep it was hard to see where one ended and the next began.
Kittens are very hard to resist. Especially super fluffy ones like these, but my heart is set on giving an older cat a new home. Not one of those kittens will have any problem at all charming a new owner with their sweet faces and piercing blue eyes.
I was really disappointed when we left the center. We keep taking the empty cat carrier in and out of the car. I just get so excited. I love giving the cats a cuddle but I think once a week might be too often to visit them.
As well as the visit to the shelter we also did some extra investigating this weekend. We managed to find the details of another local shelter. We have left a message with the lady that runs it and I'm hoping we will hear back very soon. Maybe she has our kitty.
