Well these two weren't really my rescues but I have been involved with Tux's story and met the lovely Pippin. Both these guys showed up at the G&G colony, and my friends there realized they needed to get out.
Tux has a sad story, somehow he ended up at TAS, but turned out to be a bit of biter, so was deemed unadoptable and the decision was made to release him to the colony. Tux was clearly not happy, and was shivering out in the cold of March so off to the vet he went and then my niece agreed to foster him.
It quickly became apparent Tux was not meant to be a colony cat, he made himself right at home, and was friendly and affectionate, with some occasional nipping. Nipping isn't such a big deal and can be managed fairly easily. Lorena played matchmaker and found a lovely retired man whose cat had died recently who wanted a new companion. We drove him out yesterday to meet Tux and hooray, it was a match. Tux will now have a forever home.

And Pippin was taken in by Annex Cat Rescue, so he too won't have to live out in the cold. I'm sure someone will adopt him.
I have some more good news to report, after 18 months, Flossy, a rescue of mine that Lisa Marie has been fostering, was finally adopted. You can read more about Flossy on Lisa Marie's blog http://catfosterparent.blogspot.ca/
If you would like to keep up on Mr. Wiggles progress here is Connie's blog:http://boomerandteikas.blogspot.ca/ He is such an adorable kitten.
News flash: I just found out Jersey got adopted at THS! Jersey was rescued a month ago and had an injured paw, he had been outside for months, living as a feral, but was not at all, now in a home.
This all is just fuel for my fire. Liam, another rescue from last month, went to a TCR adoptathon on the weekend but unfortunately he didn't do well in that environment. Patience, he too will find his own home soon I hope he's a sweetie and doing well in his foster home.
