Early Sunday morning, Audrey, with the white-tipped tail and heart-shaped nose, began the first-leg of her trip home to Florida. We were privileged to have her in our care for the second-leg from one-and-a-half hours north of our home to an hour south of it. She would over-night at our drop-off point waiting to be picked-up for the 13-hour trip back to Florida.
Audrey was being returned by her adopter in Northern Virginia to her foster mom, Fredrika. But the good news, in what sounds like a sad story, is that foster mom Fredrika is now Audrey’s furever mom. She’s returning to a place she knows and a person who loves her. We can’t think of a better outcome.
We don’t know why Audrey’s adoption failed. She is a very young cat with a sweet and loving personality and warm and friendly disposition. We loved every minute of the three-plus hours we spent with her.
I hope you enjoy meeting her through these photos. She took a dozen-and-a-half selfless. There wasn’t a bad one among them, but we’ll limit how many we share.
p.s. I am very proud of Mauricio for volunteering his special blanket from Allie to use during our leg of the trip.
* We participated in this transport as part of the Cuteheads group. Tom likes to call it the “Underground Kitten Railroad.” Click on Cuteheads (above) to be taken to their volunteer form.
Beautiful moggie x
She is a very pretty kitty! We are glad her foster mom is going to adopt her now 🙂
Such a doll! I’m glad that she has a new furever mom waiting for her 🙂 That is a happy ending.
The last picture shows well how she’s happy to go back home, forever home ! This Cuteheads transport seems to be great ! Purrs
Audrey is beautiful. Glad she has a forever home. Thanks for joining the blog hop!
We are so glad Audrey has a forever home with someone who already knows and loves her. She is a real beauty.
We’re so glad Audrey has her forever home now!! Our Mom was part of one of the Cutehead transports. She has a small car and can only take one carrier so she hasn’t been able to participate recently.
Allie is very proud of Mau for sharing his blanket and sends extra smoochies to him.

It’s wonderful that you are helping with such a worthy cause. We’re glad this lovely girl is going to her proper home.
Love the photo art pic of you? and Audrey and the rest of her selfies…she is adorable! That was wonderful for you to help with the transport to get Audrey back to her previous foster home and now forever home where she will be loved and cherished. Yay!
What a GREAT story–you Humans are furry kind to be a part of getting this sweet little girl back to her furever home. At least the peeps where it didn’t work out were responsible and didn’t dump her or take her to the pound! She is a cutie-patootie! XOXOXOXO all around!
Although the adoption failed, at least they didn’t dump Audrey outside to fend for herself. Sometimes things change, jobs or health are lost and through no fault of anyone’s, they can’t keep a pet they thought they could and they did the right thing in returning her.
The mom has signed up to help transport cats, but no one ever calls. Maybe they’ve seen her driving down the road! MOL!
I am sure when kitten season gets into full swing, your mom will be needed if she’s in an area where the kitties are. The East coast from Florida going north seems to be where most of the action is.
Some times people want to be charitable and adopt an animal without thinking it through. Even though the adoption failed , two positive things occured : 1. The initial adoptive family did the correct thing and contacted the rescue group to arrange for Audrey’s future without them. They could have dumped her in a shelter or worse. Many people do. 2. Audrey’s foster Mama had time to realize she wanted to adopt Audrey. And now Audrey has her forever family and a chance at true happiness! In part because of you to JB. Thank you for taking the time and caring.
the critters in the cottage xo
OMC, we had no idea that you were one of the peeps doing that transport. The head peep drove one of the Florida legs. It’s a small cat world!
We’re so glad that Audrey is going to have the loving forever home she deserves now.
How cool is that. Did you have four or two cats? We heard that two ended up getting sick and had to be left in Florida. The other two did not arrive in Virginia until later on the day we dropped off Audrey, so we didn’t get to meet them. Did you know that all four were to have eventually moved to Colorado? Maybe now, it will just be two. It is a small world of Cuteheads. We are glad Audrey is returning to where she belongs ’cause she was such a lovely girl. XO, Janet
No kidding! Pawesome selfies!! Yay for her journey to her forever home!!
Simply awesome you got to help Audrey to her new (hopefully forever) home!
Thanks so much for helping that sweetie get home where she belongs!
I am so happy for Audrey. Very often it is not the pet that is at fault but some incorrect thinking on the part of the humans. Audrey was lucky to be able to get away from those people. Please do not place another pet, cat or dog or anything, with them. I’ll see if I can afford to send a donation in her name to the rescue organization.
Vera, That would be so kind of you. We were really pleased we could help Audrey return to the place where she had been loved and cared for previously. We’re sure whatever happened was the fault of the humans and not Audrey. XO, Janet
Aw, Audrey is so cute. We’re glad she’s in her furever home now. Thanks for being part of her journey home. That must have felt good.
You were so lucky to spend time with Audrey, and thank you for helping her get to her home!
Always great news to know a kitty is going to a furever home no matter the circumstance. We will never know why things did not work out but… What! Me Worry?
Thanks fur lending the blankie Mau! That is how a Scout gives back
Thanks for the report and for helping Audrey get back to her new home. She’s a cutie. This is great work that you do!
Thank you for doing your part! If everyone did just a bit all animals would have wonderful lives.
this is Pawsome Thank you,xx Speedy
Sometimes they need to go the long way around to get to their forever home..
What a pretty girl, Audrey is. We’re sorry the adoption didn’t work out but are so happy she’s got a furrever home waiting for her! Thank you for pawticipating in the transport. xoxo
Yay for Audrey! We are glad she is going where she belongs. We did one Cutehead trip and we would like to do more, but I need to see how well my husband is in the future. We just love to be able to get cats back and forth where they belong!
Me is so furry happy for Audrey! Me thinks she knew her foster Mommy was her true Mommy!
She is a furry cute kitten
That is great and all is well that ends well. Audrey this time we know it is for keeps. Have a terrific Tuesday.
Best wishes Molly
We enjoyed our short visit with you and Tom. It’s very rewarding to be able to help our furry friends get to their forever homes…homes that they so deserve. Maybe we’ll cross paths again…I hope so.
She’s beautiful! So glad to hear that she has a furever home. I may have to look into this Cuteheads transport… I had no idea such a thing existed. Sounds like a great way to help out.
THANK you. Over and over for the help you provide. Audrey, I am so grateful to know you are going to someone who loves you.
