Thankful Thursday - Baby Doll's Trip



Today we are thankful for our Pop, for friends like Donna and Marg who do all they can to help homeless cats.


Some of you already know that Mom's friend Donna offered to adopt Marg's Baby Doll (Marg's Animals blog )  who she has fostered for over a year. Marg has tried for quite a while to find another home for Baby Doll who has been living in her spare bedroom cuz she did not get along with other cats.  If any of her outside cats got sick, Marg had no place to put them with Baby Doll in that extra room.

Well, today is the transport day and since Mom has to work, Pop is doing the actual transport to Marg in South Carolina and then back up with Baby Doll to Donna's in North Carolina, about an hour from our house.  You may remember Donna - she adopted Panther, the black cat Brian from Brian's Home worked so hard to save after almost being euthanized twice!

Donna worked wonders with Panther and he is now part of her cat family living the life of Riley as the expression goes.  We know she will do as well with Baby Doll.  She has a big house so Baby Doll will have her own room for as long as it takes to integrate her into the household - it took Panther 8 months.  We hope Baby Doll will be faster but Donna has great patience and a way with cats.

We will update this journey as it unfolds today  - stop back often for the latest news about where Pop is with baby Doll.  He left Asheville at 8 am for a two hour drive to meet up with Marg.  Stay tuned for more.....

9:45 am UPDATE - Pop has Baby Doll and Marg is on her way home.  Yay!  Marg will email us to let us know  she got home OK!   Pop will text again as he gets closer to Donna!

11:30 am UPDATE - Still waiting to hear from Marg that she got home OK!  Getting a bit concerned.

11:55 am UPDATE - Marg emailed that she was home safe and sound. Looks like Pop is running early and will be meeting Donna before 1 pm.

1 pm UPDATE - Donna now has Baby Doll and is headed to her forever home with her.  She promised to take pics as soon as she got settled so we can see her in her new home.  Marg was sad to see her go but this is a good thing. Pop is on his way back to us. It is a happy done deal!

Oh this is so wonderful that Baby Doll has been adopted! Thank you to Marg for caring for her the past year and to Pop for the transport and to Donna for adopting her, what a special Lady she is with Panther and Baby Doll! Sending purrs to Baby Doll for her new home and adjustment and harmony with all kitties there.
