    Introducing miss charlotte aka "charlie"

    Charlotte, an 8 year old black beauty who belonged to a woman suffering from throat cancer. The woman asked a local rescue in NY to find Charlotte a "foster" home. I stepped up to the plate. Unfortunately, her owner didn't want her coming all the way to CT.

    Time went by. She's in a foster home with lots of kittens and a dog and isn't doing very well, to the point of pulling out her belly hair. But because I live a distance away, she wouldn't allow her to come to me.

    Two weeks went by and no one locally would give this poor girl a chance. I got an email telling me the woman would rather bring her to a shelter than let her come live with me. I know what Charlotte's chances of getting adopted, especially from a high kill shelter...SLIM TO NONE. This douche would rather have her cat killed than allow her to live out her life in a loving home. I was outraged!!!!! I asked Trudy (the coordinator) why someone can't just tell this lady they'll take the cat to a shelter and transport her to me.

    Well, that is what is happening. Tomorrow I'm meeting the transport in New Haven at 5 pm., and Charlotte will be home for good! I'm asking everyone to say prayers that my cats accept her. I'm taking a chance not knowing how she is with adult cats, although the current foster says she's fine with adults, just can't stand being around kittens (I know THAT feeling). I could not, in good conscience, let them kill a cat

    I tried to post her picture but it wouldn't allow it. I'll try later once she's home and settled.

    Good for you. I hope all the animals like her. You're so kind to give her a home.

    God bless you, Donna, and God bless Miss Charlotte too! How awful is that woman NOT to want her to go to you but rather let her be PTS.

    Welcome HOME, Miss Charlotte! You couldn't have asked for a better outcome here! We're looking forward to meeting you in PURRRSON here!

    Donna, I'm glad that you were so persistent and now she'll be coming home to live out her life with you and your other cats. I hope that things go well. My latest addition doesn't like kittens either and it took her only a few days to adjust to my other male cats. I hope that Charlotte will adjust this quickly. Lots of prayers and positive thoughts are being sent to both of you.

    Thanks KAK. She's home and in my room and doing great!! I feel so bad for her, as her belly is absent fur because of all the stress.

    I found out today that the woman had already dumped the cat at the high kill shelter. The rescue pulled her on June 2nd. This biatch lied to us all saying Charlotte was in a foster home and she was visiting her on a regular basis when, in fact, she was at the high kill shelter. She had been at the shelter for two months before someone pulled her.

    Charlotte is doing so well so far. I checked on her a little while ago and she was in the window enjoying the view. I have a feeling this is going to be another easy transition.

    That's horrible that the woman was not only lying about where her cat was but that she was at a high kill shelter. I just don't understand how any pet loving owner could do this to their beloved pet. I'm so glad that she was pulled in time. I know she'll do well in your home because it's filled with the love and care that she needs right now. Good luck.
