So sad… but I have had a good cry and my mama said that she would come down on Saturday and go to every place in the world with cats and help me find a new one. Initially, C.J. (or "Sarah" as she was with them) was supposed to be here yesterday afternoon before supper… then after supper and now she said maybe not until late in the evening tomorrow. That’s unprofessional and unfair to my family.
even get me started on the whackadoodle conversation via telephone I
had with her about this crazy contract she sent me. She basically
outlined all that I could and could not do with the cat with the final
caveat of how she could terminate the adoption at any point and take
possession of my cat should they feel I violated the agreement. Keep in mind, this is a random stray found out and about that was picked up by the rescue people, not some purebred. The contract was
crazy to me because once I adopt the cat, she’s mine and their role
ends. Her response was that if she drove by my house and saw that she
was outside, she would take her… when would she even drive by my house?
She’s across town! Too crazy for my taste but the final tearful straw
was when she sent me an email at 7 p.m. tonight saying she was headed
out again soon and that I might could get her tomorrow evening.
was fed up and wrote her back, saying ”This is heartbreaking and rather
frustrating, I will admit. I have offered to come and pick her up
several times, all of which you have denied. I am sorry, but given the
lack of organization and complete disregard or attention to adoptive pet
parents, I am going to have to decline taking Sarah and will search for
another cat to fill our hearts and home.” It broke my heart to write
that but I know it was the right thing to do.
seems that the bigger picture has been totally lost on this woman. She
wrote me a nasty email in return that I won’t even go into because it
just proves how self-righteous and whackadoodlely she truly is and though I feel horrible
about not being able to bring the cat into our lives, but I’m very thankful
to have not brought that woman in in return.
been looking at the humane and spca shelters for this weekend. I might
head over to the one in Clearwater today after I take Hobbit to
school. I think I need a quiet day to visit with them without her and my
mama. If I find one, I can always bring her home and surprise everyone... if I don't, then I will look again tomorrow.
