Captain was "the one" for me so it is with mixed feelings that I tell you he was adopted today. And no, it was not by me.
Captain went home with a great family. I was so happy I was able to meet them. They are a younger couple with two dogs and another cat at home. When I walked into the room to meet the couple, Captain was lying on the wife's lap like jello. I knew immediately that Captain had found his "one".
Everyone is probably asking why didn't I just adopt Captain? Unfortunately, timing isn't always right when you meet "the one". Recently, I took a new job. With that came working more hours.
I felt like I had to chose between keeping Captain or fostering more cats. I knew Captain would find someone else who would love him as much as I do and I know I can make a difference in this world by fostering.
So tonight I'll cry both sad and happy tears. Tomorrow, I'll start saving the world again one kitten at a time.
