The city of Seattle has a shelter and that's where I got Betty and Travis and that's where the kitty I wanted was listed as up for adoption so that's where I was when their doors opened today.

It was a bit of a disaster.  The kitty my friend found on the web is a senior cat 15-18 years old and in kidney failure.  She's in foster care now.  The had about 10 cats for adoption but it was too crowded to see them.   It's really a tiny, smelly place and the volunteers aren't the easiest to work with so I left.

The county Humane Society is not nearby...  It's about 20 minutes outside of town.  I'd actually never been there before.  It turned out to be so worth the trip.  They have all the cats in little rooms of 5 or 6 cats each.  Each room has a place for a human to sit and cat toys to entice the cats to play.  It's clean and pretty and not at all smelly.

They had lots of cats but the only ones I clicked with had real issues.  1 was spoken for - may be available after today if she's not claimed.  Then I found one I really thought was it but when I went to pay up and do the deal, they told me she was there because her owners said that in 4 years she had never learned to pee in the litter box.  Er no.  Then I found another one who was such a lover omg.  He was just a massive ball of cuddle.  But he was massive and had to have a special diet.  I can't handle a special diet with Betty.

By that time I was starving so I came home.  I'm not done just done for today.
