Except she didn't. Well, she KIND of did ... let me explain.
The foster coordinator called me on Thursday. A woman had seen Delilah on line and wanted to adopt her! She had filled out all the paperwork, passed the home inspection (!), and wanted to adopt. So on Saturday, the foster peeps came and got Delilah. Bye-bye, Deli-Belly! Enjoy your new home!
A couple of hours later, I got a phone call. The woman's four-year-old boy was scared of Delilah. She would have to go.
Now, I am not going to comment on someone only giving a healthy, friendly cat two hours before returning it. If she felt that strongly about it, it's best that the cat come back. And I don't know, maybe her kid has special needs or something. But I WILL say that two hours may set some kind of record for shortest. adoption. ever.
Besides, her buddies missed her terribly while she was gone and were very happy to have her back.
Prepare to gaze upon the countenance that scared a four-year-old:
Don't worry, Miss Deli. Your family will find you.
