Happy Tails: Simon has been adopted!

Happy news!  Simon went home Friday night!
Simon turned on the charm for Theresa.

Simon turned on the charm for Theresa.

One of our Foster Volunteers, Nadja, brought Simon to our attention because a friend of hers had taken him in when he was found outside in very cold weather.  Nadja briefly fostered Simon, but he tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) so we moved him to a foster home with no other cats. Simon was nervous around his new foster dad at first, but after a few weeks they really became dedicated couch buddies.
Simon ran right over to Theresa while his foster dad, Jim, looked on.

 Theresa just moved to Boston and was looking for a new feline friend.  She specifically wanted a cat less likely to be adopted.  Since Simon is a little older and FIV+, we thought he’d be a good fit since she has no other cats.  When Theresa walked in to meet Simon he ran right over to her and didn’t leave her the whole visit.  We’ve never seen such a successful adoption visit!  Theresa didn’t want to leave without him, but Simon definitely wouldn’t have let her leave. 🙂

An update after their first night together:
“Oh my gosh, Simon is the sweetest little love bug ever!  After a brief stint of hiding in the closet, he is now glued to me, following me around the apartment and hopping in my lap whenever I sit down.  He’s already eating like a champ and using the litter box.  I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.”
The beginning of a beautiful relationship.

The beginning of a beautiful relationship.

Congratulations to Simon and Theresa!
