... I picked Curious George.
I don't know how to explain it ... he was just so CALM and so FRIENDLY and so ...
... crammed into a cage in which he could just about turn around.
I COULD NOT HELP IT.
It was, in the end, a process of elimination. Scooter was in the shelter where he could walk around and play and snooze where he chose, so I felt like he was less in need of a jailbreak. Linus was adorable and small and he's going to get adopted real soon anyway. That left Curious George and Turtle.
Turtle was in a big cage, so he had room while he waited for his new home. He was also a little bit ... hesitant with me. I don't know, I just really got the feeling he was waiting for someone else, not me. And he was a BIG cat. I was scared he would intimidate Little Girl.
So George it is.
This is by no means a done deal. My application has to go before the board of the shelter for approval(!). And I do let my current cat outside, and I understand that one of the members of the board is vehement about keeping cats inside, so that could stiff the deal.
So we will see, George and me.
I'll keep you posted.
