Can you help? - Updated with good news!

Updated with good news: I rang the shelter - they've both been adopted together today!! I don't know anything other than that (the lady actually sounded really suspicious of how happy I was when I heard they were adopted! hahaha) but I'm so glad they've landed on their feet. In a perfect world it would be Miss Kathleen that adopted them *fingers crossed* ~The Rumblemum


One of the saddest stories I've heard in a long time, poor Miss Kathleen from Feline Purr-spective was forced to put two of her babies into a shelter after her landlord decided she couldn't keep all three of her kitties. (You can read the full story here)

These guys need a special new home, I just know someone out there can help!

This is Sherlock - he's a big cuddlebug, even if he's a little shy at times:


Sherlock is about three years old and irresistible!

This is Traveller (renamed 'Watson' by the shelter)


Traveller is also about two years old. He's a special needs kitty, as he doesn't hear as well at times, but he's adorable and full of love.

Please - if you've been thinking of adopting a new kitty (or two! Two are even BETTER than one!) these guys could really use your help.

There's a possibility that Miss Kathleen might be able to take them back again come June - so maybe if you're just able to foster them till then? These guys will pay you back with so much love!!

Here's the link to the shelter:

- Sherlock's link
- 'Watson' (Traveller's) link

They're in Edmond, OK - but if you're in the US and interested in adopting them I reckon we could get them to you some how - do don't let location be an impediment!

Our heart goes out to Miss Kathleen, and we purr every day for her & Ash and for Sherlock & Traveller.

Edited: Miss Jan has pointed out that they're no longer appearing on the shelter site. I don't know why, and they were up yesterday... maybe someone has adopted them? I sure hope so, because that would mean they're together still...

It just breaks our hearts to know that Miss Kathleen was forced to give up Sherlock and Traveler. We are purring like crazy that she can get them back....or someone will step in and foster them until she can get them back.

This totally broke my heart. I'm hoping we can do something about this like we helped the Royals. I don't think what that landlady did was legal.

They look so sad. This happened to someone I know and it ended tragically. Is there anyone willing to at least foster in the area?

Our hearts were broken when we found out about Miss Kathleen's situation. We're glad Sherlock and Traveller are safe at a no-kill shelter. We're purring for the best outcome for them, best being they are fostered together until Kathleen is able to take them home in June.

Thank you kindly for your comforting words of sympathy about our dear Chica.

We live in NW Louisiana, as I said to Miss Kathleen. If you can help, we can take Sherlock to foster. Email me and lets talk more! Loretta

This is heart breaking that their mum had to chose which of her babies to give up and that she had to at all. I am so purring that someone will step in and help them have a loving home again. Hugs GJ xx

Sherlock and Traveler (Watson) are no longer on the site. Anyone know what happened to them?

Ann Staub said...

It was one of the saddest stories I have heard in a long time. Thank you for posting this I know that Sherlock and Traveler really appreciate it. Will share!

CATachresis said...

I hope those guys can get back with Miss Kathleen!! But if not, let's hope they find a new home together x

oh noes! I did not know where they were! We could have tried to find a home and then I bet Cuteheads could have set up transport! Please let us know if you learn anything...runs to Mom Linda to get on the CWB FB page stat!!!

Julia Williams said...

That is such sad news. I have three kitties and I couldn't imagine having to decide which one to keep. Talk about a Sophie's Choice. I hope they can go back home where they are loved.

Derby, Ducky said...

Sad when peoples have to give up their kitties for whatever reason. We hope their new home will be furrever for them.

Texas, a Cat in New York said...

I am glad they have been adopted together. I too wish it was their first human who could have taken them back!

That is all such a sad story. We sure hope someone nice has adopted the two cats. We agree, why should one person get to keep 3 cats and not the next one. Something needs to be done about that. We are so sorry this has happened to that poor lady.

meowmeowmans said...

We are still heartsick for Kathleen, and for Ash, Sherlock and Traveler. We are glad that Sherlock and Traveler were adopted together, and purr and pray for all to be okay.

OMC! I just came from Kathleen's blog and she said they're still at the shelter and that they never listed them. I know that's not true cos I saw them listed. this is getting confusing.

Timmy Tomcat said...

Purrs of support for Sherlock and Traveller
