I think it's a done deal!!!

Well, Mom and I had a very long talk last night about her going to meet Minchie Meow. She wanted to sleep on it first, but I have a feeling she's going to be calling my foster Mom, Sue, today to tell her we want to adopt Minchie. He is a very handsome mancat!

When Mom first walked into his room he couldn't take his eyes off Mom. After a few minutes he came over to her, sniffed her and immediately started rubbing his head on her legs. That's a good sign! He even let her pick him up! He's silkie soft like me and a little longer haired than me. He is quite the talker, which is common in the Turkish Angora. I'm quite the talker too so I think Mom will be having to get some ear plugs. Since Sue knows me pretty well and now Minchie she thinks he's the best suited for me. He's very laid back and nothing seems to bother him. He checked out fine at the vet. He gets along very well with the other fosters Sue has so she knows he and I will get along famously. They don't know his exact age, but guess he's 4. Mom will go back to Sue's this week and give her a check and visit again just to make sure. Sue will cat sit for him until Mom can go pick him up, the earliest being the evening of July 5 because she is dog sitting at Rickie's house for 4 days. She wants to wait until she's home for good before introducing us.

I'm so excited and can't wait! It's been many, many years since Mom had a mancat. And of course she won't be changing his name because he's had it for a long time.
