As I sit here writing this, I think it's time for a soothing cup of lemon & ginger tea. I just left my foster cat, Cameo, at a pet store for an afternoon showing; she's in the care of two volunteers.
A last minute change in the scheduling has my girl in a roomy crate with a neighbour beside her, a big, beautiful Golden mix, who is housed in an enormous crate. The person who fosters the dog promised that her husband would pick up the handsome boy if either animal felt stressed in the presence of the other. Someone I don't think Béliveau is likely to cower in fear in the presence of Cameo. I guess I'll find out how Cameo felt about some canine company when I pick her up and see whether the dog is still there! If he is, the good news will be that Cameo will tolerate a dog at close proximity, even after a short acquaintance.
I'm not entirely convinced that Cameo will be as relaxed as she is in my (her) living room! A couch that needs some straightening makes a comfortable spot for a snooze in the sunshine.
There's a lot to be said for comfort. It's certainly a perk for Cameo that she is staying in a foster home rather than a crate in a shelter. The same goes for Béliveau. (Yes, hockey fans, the dog is named after the recently departed hockey great, Jean Béliveau of the Montreal Canadiens.)
Last evening, I heard that someone lovely has applied for Cameo. That doesn't mean an adoption will happen, but it's a step in the right direction!
I hope you find many sunny spots in the upcoming week.
