Cams Step Out

Monday
12/7/2015

Arther (now Jem) has been home for a week now, and Nimue should be heading home next week when her new family returns from vacation, so that leaves Morgana, Merlin, and mom-cat Gabby as our available Cams.

We took the three of them to an adoption event at PetMAC in DC on Saturday. Not much happened until the last half hour, when a woman whose elderly cat had recently passed away stopped by. She has one young semi-feral cat left, and she was considering whether to adopt a companion for it.

Nothing had been decided by the time the event ended and we had to go, but adopting Morgana and Merlin was one option she was weighing. Or adopting Gabby, or maybe even all three.

All the Cams kept their cool at the show, despite the proximity of other cats and a few leashed dogs who came in with their owners. We hadn’t been sure whether Gabby would turn defensive (protective of her kittens) or evasive, but she stayed relaxed.

We’d love to find her a home, since Morgana and Merlin should be snapped up soon, and Gabby deserves a much larger and more interesting domain. And based on the adoption event, we’re optimistic that she’d get along with other cats and dogs.

So even though she’s still nursing occasionally, Gabby is slated for spay surgery this Friday. The HT cat manager wants to make it as easy as possible for someone to take her home.
