Well, I guess the lord truly does giveth and taketh away in a good ways
sometimes!  Just as I am struggling to deal with my returned foster suffering
from seziures of unknown origin and reaching the height of my stress...I also
have the best news I have had in a long time.  My feleuk foster Manny has a
home.  A lady and her 14 yo son were coming to look at him tonight at 6:00 and I
had not allowed myself to get excited about it b/c I am realistic.  But they
knew he had feleuk and still wanted to see him (tho they have never had a
feleuk- had two cats that lived to be 18-20 that died a few months ago a few
mths apart).  The son needed time to grieve but has recently been asking for a
cat.  They just want 1 so a foster friend suggested my Manny b/c I'm
desperate to get him home b/c I just don't have the set up for him to have
much of a life here-- running out of rooms!  They have already been screened by
the organization I am adopting him thru or else they wouldn't have come to
the house to see him.  AND they are cousins by marriage of one of my fellow
foster friends!  Manny is the healthiest thing ever and he's flourished in
my care-- he's all muscle, not an ounce of fat, vivacious, playful, tons of
fun, and a complete alpha male who rules humans and dogs-- whomever he is given
the opportunity to interact with!!!  He's the smartest thing in this house
and that includes the dogs- of which one is very bright-- but Manny takes the
cake in the brains area.  I love love love him and would so keep him if I
hadn't already had non-feleuk fosters and house cats and in particular
kitten fosters.
So I didn't get my hopes up too much when they came to see him but they
asked all the right questions about feleuk and I think they feel comfortable b/c
they can rely on me and my experience since we will have a very "open"
adoption!  She is a nurse so she has a great base of knowledge for understanding
his disease!  I just want him to have a home so I have told them that I will
help personally with vet bills so that he can have his red blood cells monitored
every 6 months and should he ever get sick- with the treatment.  The
organization I am adopting him thru (I am working with another one on the side
now that I am very happy with) helps with vet bills in all cases and will assist
with his should he get sick!!!!!!!!!  They said they were told by another
rescuer/foster in the organization that they will just know the right cat for
them when they see it and they said "we just know it's him!"  I
just can't believe I got my Manny a home!!!!!!!!  I have a few days to spend
with him to say goodbye so I can ease myself into it-- they want to clean the
house for Manny and have to get a litterbox, etc. because they threw things out.
 I just can't even explain to you how happy I am but I know you all share my
joy!  Manny finally gets a young boy to PLAY WITH, an entire house to romp in,
and windows to bird watch from ALL DAY (instead of just a few hours a
day)!!!!!!!!!  I couldn't possibly want more for him.
