Our poor adoption team is being deluged the past few weeks. Webgal had to come up with names for 17 kittens posted.
A lot of people are leaving the country for holidays, so the pool of fosters has just shrunk to the point of non-existence. People are also leaving the country for extended holidays, or are going back home and do not want to take their cats along. At the same time, people are not adopting because of the same reason - school holidays and being away, or conversely, are children or parents who want to adopt a cat for their kids to play with during the holidays. As a result, postings are coming in thick and fast, and adoption rates are slowing down.
A big round of applause to the adoption team for the hard work they put in every day!
