As I said, I hae picked out a shelter fairly close to my home and all my people 
have to do is get thm there.  I hav also made up a letter for each one telling 
about their character, likes and dislikes, the food they eat, kind of litter I 
use, etc.  I started this because I got 2 from the no kill shelter that were 10 
years old and no one wanted "old" cats.  I knew who the previous owner was, but 
she left no information on them.  I found out the hard way that Casey is a 
bully (sits and stares until the subject goes ballistic or actually stalks 
them.  Lil Bit is so scared by every sound, movment that it has taken over 3 
years for her to leave my bedroom.
She felt secure there and would not budge.  I had to put a litter box and food 
bowl in there for her.  I also put a water fountain in the bathroom, a mere 3 
feet from my bedroom.  Just this month, she began coming into the living room 
and kitchen.  She sits on a dining room chair, hidden by the table cloth, just 
behind the sofa where I sit.  It would have been so much easier on both of us 
is I had known all this 3 years ago.  So now, I have 7 "To Whomever gets Casey, 
Lil Bit, Annie,Harley, Dee, Nitnoy, Homey" letters.  Hopefully this will make 
life easier for my babies and their "new" people during the transition.  As 
something new comes up, I update my letters.
