Dealing with Disappointment

Foiled again!  I was contacted by someone who was interested in my little foster Franklin.  We sent emails back and forth and I was really excited to meet this person at the next adoption show and maybe get a long awaited adoption! But no.  They did not show.  And I have heard nothing since then.  :(

I never seems to fail that every Saturday, I have lots of people interested in one or the other or my fosters.  Yet no one takes them home.  Franklin, who shows the best, is always out of his cage, on my shoulders, playing with a feather toy, and in my opinion, if I saw a cat like that at an adoption show I would say: I WANT THAT ONE! 

Then comes the fact that I can't tell if the two of them would be OK separated.  Not many people want to take home 2 cats at one time.  I guess all I can do is wait and hope that the right person/persons/family comes along and falls in love with them.  I hope sooner rather than later because they already have a place in my heart, and if I had the time the space and the money I would keep them.  But 4 cats and a dog is a little much for a 2 bedroom apartment. :D

  1. That's such a shame that they didn't show. It's hard not to get your hopes up when a potential home looks really good. Here's hoping Franklin finds his forever home soon!
