Former Foster Friday - Buffy and her Scoobies..
It has been a while since I have been able to do an update on Buffy, Zander, and Spike. I fostered them back in 2010, but to me it seems like it was yesterday. I remember Buffy so clearly because of her trip to the emergency clinic.
I ran into their mom a few months ago and learned they are having some digestive issues. I recently connected with them on Facebook because FB is way too smart and suggested that we might know one another. I found out they are still having issues and are being treated by the vet I ended up going to.
For those of you who don't know, these three kittens were brought into the shelter and I started fostering them. I took on another set of kittens and I ended up naming all of them after characters from the Buffy the Vampire series.. (I was actually watching the Angel series at the time). These three were so incredibly bonded that I asked the shelter if they might put them up for adoption as a threesome. We were all incredibly skeptical that we could keep them together, but low and behold a woman I went to high school with was in the market for a pair of kittens, and just happened to be a HUGE Buffy fan. She had come in to the shelter a few weeks prior and fell in love with some kittens but was about to go out of town and had to forgo adopting those.
I loved the kismet of the whole thing, and while I was fearful for them - because seriously how could I not be - I ended up being very happy and even thrilled with the adoption.
