Momma wasn't sure if she wanted to foster again or just adopt, so she started looking on both lists with LBR. And one particular face called to her. It turned out, when she contacted LBR Foster Sookie's foster mom, she's one of only three volunteers who lives in our new hometown!! Momma arranged to come by for a visit. Sookie is supposedly pretty shy at furst -- she took a few passes through the living room to eyeball Momma from afar and try to figure out who she was. But then Angel Casey gave her that nudge and she came wiggling over right to Momma's lap and started licking her ear, just like Casey always did!! So I guess I have a new sister.
Momma said that Sookie has some vet issues to deal with, so she's not going to come live with us until right after the Fourth. She's going to come for a little visit next weekend so WE can meet. She lives with a cat at her current foster home AND was around them before she was surrendered to LBR. I'm thinking that Angel Jessie was watching out for ME and wants to make sure I have a real sissy again to cuddle with. I'm so excited to meet her, and I know she's going to be just what this house needs.
"Sookie" just didn't seem to fit her, though. Momma looked at her face and immediately knew, "Her name is Matilda." So say hello to Matilda, or Tildy for short! We can't wait to introduce her around Blogville!!
