14. For anyone who followed the "Cat-Whisperer" thread--A cat story still seeking a Hollywood ending ...

I am so sad to say this, but it was necessary to take the cat I adopted from Best Friends
after 7 weeks of trying to make it work with my much-older and ultra-meek female Krishna.

Although both cats are sweet and affectionate, the age-energy--temperament difference
was not surmountable between them.

I get along great with both cats, but the 2 by themselves were not a comfortable pair, mainly due to Opie's irrepressable energy
and impish playfulness, but also due to a bit of increasing dominance on Opie's part, simply because Krishna
is so incredibly gentle, and became increasingly un-assertive and even fearful around Opie.
Maybe that gave him an exaggerated sense of power, or something.
It made me feel very defensive of Krishna.

But whatever, it's not the "fault" of either cat---Just not a good combo, as, I am told, sometimes happens.

But I have tried so hard, and it has turned out to be an emotional roller-coaster for me,
since I have developed so much feeling for Opie.
I asked around my friends, but no one was up for an adoption right now.

I made a good friend, and now we have to part forever. Unavoidable.
And yes, my heart is broken.

Can you help?

At this time, he is still there in Best Friends Adoption Center
in Mission Hills, California.
If you or anyone you know lives in the Los Angeles area and might want to adopt Opie,
Please DO!
He's a great cat--I can totally vouch for that.

Plus, I have well over $100 worth of stuff I bought for Opie (pet water bar, food dishes, various toys, scratch post,
pet bed, etc) that are either as yet unused, or semi-new condition, and I would take them myself
right over to wherever Opie might call his new home----Got that? Free delivery!

At the very least, send out your good-vibes to a sweet, wayward kitty soul named Opie.
He deserves a happy ending.

Here's the complete story on my Blog:
