If you've been following our blog for a little while then you know how much we love our cat, Iris. A good friend of ours is a volunteer foster mom with a local Siamese Rescue group. Somehow she knew that placing Iris with us was a match made in heaven. She couldn't have been more right. Here is her "referral" picture (left). Woe-be-gones.
Here is Iris now (right). Happy, sweet, very talkative. She pretty much owns the place.
We often wonder how Iris will do when baby-girl comes along. Will she be jealous? Will she want to mother the baby a bit? Will she try to sleep with the baby in the crib? Will baby-girl be scared of Iris?
Hopefully those folks working in the CCAA matching room will channel some of that magic that brought Iris into our home when they make their referral decision.
Hopefully they won't use those hideous passport photos that make us look like criminals to do it.
