WAFFLES: Hey Boss, Glogirly said that Snickers found a new forever home. I know she's been cutting back on cookies and stuff, but I didn't know she was trying to find a forever home for her candy bar.
KATIE: Waffles, Snickers is a cat. Not a candy bar.
WAFFLES: That's not what the TV says, Boss. Or Glogirly's treat jar.
KATIE: We shared Snickers and his story on our blog and Facebook page just a few weeks ago, Waffles. Our friend Lori needed to find him just the right home so we helped spread the word about him. Lori had everyone who contacted her fill out an adoption application form so she could learn more about them and make sure they would be a good fit for Snickers. (See Snickers' story here.)
WAFFLES: You mean like small, medium, large? How did she know what size Snickers needed?
KATIE: It's not about size, Waffles.
KATIE: It's about finding someone who will love and care for Snickers with all their heart. Someone who will make sure he has a nice soft bed and who'll dangle his wand toys and throw his crinkle balls. It's about finding the right home environment where he'll be happy and safe. Just like you and I are happy, safe and–
Thank you so much for sharing Snickers story and keeping him in your thoughts these past few weeks. We were tickled to hear that a wonderful family had come forward wanting to adopt him. They live in Minnesota not far from where Snickers was already living. Just a few years ago they lost their cat to leukemia and just recently decided it was the right time to add a new furry member to their family. They have two young boys who are over the moon and have become fast friends with Snickers.
It was bittersweet for our friend Lori. Those of you who foster or work in rescue have probably experienced the same. She loved him with all her heart and it was a teary goodbye. It's that love though that gave her the strength to do what's best for Snickers. Knowing he's with such a wonderful family makes her tender heart smile.
