Do You Remember Adah?

Some of my readers may recall Adah, a cat I first met on the day of – possibly and no later than the day after – her birth. I won’t reiterate the adventure of finding her, though if anyone wants the details of it, they may read them in the entry for this blog from April 29, 2018. Her life was saved through a collaborative effort, involving myself, another member of the Lethbridge PAW Society, a woman and her son in a town near by (both of whom are now members of the Society) and their cat, the remarkable Miss Mew, who took to Adah (and other orphans) as if the newborn were her own, and nursed her.

For two years, Adah has been living in a loving foster-home, sharing the attention of the humans there with other cats. She gets along with them, but she would really prefer the life of an only-cat, and be spoiled rotten by her person.

At the risk of jinxing the arranging, I can announce that Adah has been chosen for adoption. Though the actual process may not be finalised for some weeks, due to covid-19 restrictions – and this being the reason why I cannot wait to tell everyone the good news – someone has been found who is perfect for the little cat. Adah will be the only feline there.

This will be a wrench for her foster-guardians, who love Adah tremendously. This of course merely means that they are the sort of foster-guardians whom Adah needed. They will be consoled by the knowledge that their little charge will have the sort of home that she deserves, and love and security for the rest of her life.

I will, if permission is granted, publish pictures of Adah in her new life once she settles in. I know a number of readers followed this girlcat’s exploits and will share my delight at this good news.

  1. Permission granted of course. As if it was our to give. We wish Adah joy and peace in her new home.

    Dad says he could never be a Foster. Once in the house, it is forever; good or bad. But our admiration for Fosters who can "let go".

  4. I remember Adah's story very well. When you last mentioned her, I was surprised that such a personable girl hadn't found a home yet. I'm so pleased to hear that day has finally arrived!

  5. We wish Adah well, and of course, her foster-parents will cry a little, then foster another sweet baby who needs their care.

  6. I remember Adah's story very well. What great news!! I'm so happy for her, and I wish her and her new family much happiness and luck. After waiting for 2 years for a "furever" home, Adah certainly deserves to be an "only child", and spoiled rotten. As for her foster parents...they have my respect and admiration. Like Mark's Mews, I could never be a foster parent. I'd never want to give the cat up.

  10. I do remember that tiny kitten! So glad she will have a furever home soon, however her foster parents look as if they have done a terrific
    job helping her grow up into a full grown cat. It would be nice for you to see where she will be living soon, and maybe a picture or 2.
