This shelter also has a community room. I remember eons ago when I adopted Tig, this room had two large cages in it with an walkway in the middle for you to go and view the kitties and enter them. They kept the boys on the right and the girls on the left.
My how far shelters have come..
Anyway, I walked in and I only saw the kitty that is in the lower right portion of that photo.. (did you see the kitty in the window??) She (and I'm guessing as you'll find out later) came out to see me, and was attention seeking and was totally willing to pose for me.. I got some kisses and some head butts and she was really sweet to me..
Then I noticed the kitty in the window who came and sat down for a visit. These kitties have access to the outside which I find not only refreshing but a little odd. What if I was in the mood to adopt a kitty just like him and he didn't feel like coming inside? But hey, I'm sure he will recognize his people when they show up..
So then I asked Miss Sociable if they were the only two kitties in there.. I would have asked Mr Handsome, but he had other ideas..

Then Miss Sociable walked to the other side of the room mewing at me..
I had NO idea what she wanted, but she kept mewing.. So I looked around..
Just as I discovered these two (the calico was in the green box you see in the above shot) a mother and child walked in. The child was younger maybe around 10, but sadly I have no recollection if it was a boy or a girl.. They were behind me when I heard the mom call Miss Sociable older looking and a moment or two later said, not that one it swipes. I was a little surprised, because I had just been kissing her forehead and getting head bumps.. The mom and child soon left the room - most likely because they didn't see any more kitties and went on to look at the rabbits in the next room. I went back over to her - this time she was on the big post that was in the middle of the room. I offered her a pat and she took it kindly and then posed for me again.

Yes, I TOTALLY wanted to trim those, but I didn't have a nail trimmer on me (I can't believe I go anywhere with out them) and frankly at this point she was all "you people are rude" and it would have been totally the wrong time to attempt it.. Now that I'm on a computer, I found out that Miss Sociable is in fact a girl and is named Friday.. I can't tell you how much I love that..
I went and saw the bunnies which were uber cute and totally made me want to adopt another..and then I called it a day and went about my business.. I was there for maybe an hour.. I got some beautiful photos.. and spent some time with three wonderful cats.. I have to say, I so totally hope they have all been adopted by now..
