Yee Haw!

Yippee! Yahoo! Yee Haw!

Mike and Nightpelt went to a great home together!

Ashfur had hardly been put in a cage at the store and a young lady came in and picked her up. "I'll take her!" she said after about 2 minutes of Ashfur's purring and making biscuits on her.

Ming and Gladys have been put into the cage now vacated by Mike and Nightpelt.

For the first time in forever, we are down to only 2 kittens at home!

I'm going to pray and hope that Shockolate is over his sneezing by next week so both of them can go to adoption day.

It's looking like we may have all of the fosters to new homes before we leave for vacation. That would be a huge load off my mind.

Fingers crossed and prayers said, please.
