I'm Approved!

I'm a big fan of Siamese Rescue as you know...and a couple of weeks ago, I was browsing the website of available adoptees and discovered one I fell head over heels for. The foster mom was a woman I know locally, so I phoned her. Of course, he'd been spoken for, but she asked me, "Have you been approved?"

Well. No. I hadn't.

For one thing, I have two cats, and that's all I can have here in this townhouse. I had almost decided that when the Calico Curmudgeon had gone on to the Rainbow Bridge that The Meezer and I would wind up our days together. She is, after all, a Sealpoint Diva.

But...I saw this big seal boy, and faltered...and decided that just maybe having a big, happy, boy Siamese teddybear would be just the ticket to keep The Meezer from being impossible to live with.

So, I applied. And I only told a couple of folks I email back and forth with, along with my coworkers, my vet, my landlord, a couple of friends...well you get the drift - everyone but you all!

I didn't want to disappoint anyone (least of all me) if I didn't pass muster.

Everything has gone smoothly with all the references. And tonight, I had my phone interview...

And - I'm approved to be a Siamese Cat Mom...! We'll be on hold for awhile, until the proper time...but that's approaching faster than most of us would like. Still, to know that we can jump and get the "right" Siamese boy-kitty when he appears on the scene, is a relief.

It's caused quite a stir in the household, you know? The Calico was more demanding than ever for her dinner...

And The Meezer?
Oh! Mommie, A new TEARSTRIP?
I can't believe you found a new one...I've missed it so much...
What do you mean I'm going to get a BROTHER?
Well...as long as he leaves my tearstrip alone, I guess it's okay

But he can't take my spot under the covers!

How could they deny a fabulous Mommy like you?

I hope they all get along! And the new brother has the sense to leave the Tearstrip alone. :)

Congratulations!!! That's fabulous news. Of course, they'd be crazy not to approved such a wonderful mama, but it's a relief to have made it past that hurdle :)

The introduction of another cat at some point should make things, err, interesting. Good for you.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
