It was a dark and Stormy night....Here's the last time we posted about Stormy.
On April 11, 2005 we took in a beautiful black and white cat we named "Stormy." Stormy was only 2 years old. Fluffy and fine, with the unfortunate distinction of being black and white. A common coat color among a sea of uncommon cats. But Stormy, sweet and affectionate was anything but common.
458 days later, after a long, frustrating stay (for us; I think Stormy rather liked it) we transferred Stormy to Tri-Valley Animal Rescue in a trade of sorts.
Sometimes, we will do a "swap," trading out adoptable animals to each other. Maybe they have cat they haven't been able to find a home for, so they will transfer him to us to give a change in scenery.
Perhaps we will flunk out with one particular cat, and at the same time, they have an overload of easily adoptable kittens, so we'll make a trade that meets both our needs.
I think Stormy was in that second category; traded in for a bunch of kittens.
It's not as mercenary as it sounds!
But what ever you call it, after 458 days in the shelter, TVAR found a home for Stormy in a couple weeks. Now Stormy is adjusting to the life she's always deserved.
Way to go, TVAR!
