CAT UPDATE

I ended up posting about Marcy on a rescue site devoted just to Ragdoll cats, and got a lot of responses. They all started out using language like "We wuv your kitty! Is she ready for a forever home? xoxoxoxo!!" and then I'd write back and explain some of her issues and they'd NEVER REPLY. But finally one lady wrote who wasn't flaky and who wanted it for her daughter who lives alone and said she could give Marcy a lot of attention, and I got enough information on them to make sure that she wasn't secretly collecting ragdolls to start a ragdoll circus or something, and she was talking about all the kitty stuff they'd bought and we arranged a date and I was expecting them to flake out right to the last second and then... they turned up. So yeah, no more Marcy at our house.

And now, predictably, I'm feeling sad. Not regretful or anything, just sad that we won't have that demented animal around anymore. I have the new owner's contact details and I'm holding back right now from spamming her phone asking how Marcy is going. I want her to feel like Marcy is 100% her kitty now and not like I'm going to show up at her house at 3am yelling for my animal back.

We did make it very clear that if they had a problem with her they could take her back here, so who knows.

I hope Marcy fits in well in her new place and that you're given a lot of updates so you can feel more relaxed about it. :)

Thanks! I actually caved in and messaged the lady this morning and apparently Marcy is doing great there and she loves her, so hopefully it stays that way.

Demented ragdoll circus.

They actually were like Dhalgren with Taylor Swift. But doesn't she have a ragdoll in that one video?

She has two Scottish Folds. I didn't have to look that up and I'm not ashamed.
