North Shore Animal League called last night and I have an appointment tomorrow morning, July 30, to take Tarzan and Cheetah in. If they pass the health and behavior exams they'll be accepted into the shelter, neutered, and put up for adoption. Kittens are almost always adopted quickly there, and they do a good job of screening adopters and trying to match animals to people and families.
So it's for the best since keeping eight cats in a one bedroom apartment wouldn't be great for me or for them. Still, I feel terrible handing them over to strangers knowing they'll be frightened and missing their home and family.
If anyone has been thinking about adopting them, now's the time to speak up!
