Kathy tells me - On Saturday, a lovely adult, black & white cat named
Tippi got adopted by a guy who recently got divorced. As it happened,
the OCAS was doing an adoption at a pet-friendly apartment building.
Dogs were sent outside under a pavilion and cats were put inside an air
conditioned club room. (Lucky ducks who got to handle the cat adoptions,
I was outside with dogs).

The adopter had gone to the management office to pick up a package and
the manager sent him and his kids in to see the cats. As it happens,
Tippi is taking Thyroid medication (1/2 tablet once a day). As it also
happens, the guy's young daughter (maybe 3-4 years old) was born without
a Thyroid and takes daily thyroid medication too!

Although the guy had not planned to adopt a cat that day, he had been
thinking of getting a friend to keep him company now that he lives
alone. He spent some time thinking about adopting Tippi, but then drove
down to the Orange County Animal Shelter to look at kitten. Ultimately,
however, he came back and adopted Tippi!

What I didn't know at the time of the adoption was that in addition to
being a "special needs" cat, Tippi had been waiting her turn at the
shelter for a VERY long time. Turns out Saturday was Tippi's day.
Congrats to her and the Orange County Animal Shelter whose people do
their utmost to find a home for every creature entering their shelter.

A lovely little hound also found a home, and several others said they
would visit the shelter to find a friend.
