So, perhaps unsurprisingly, the person who was wanting the male... and then when I explained I wouldn't adopt them a male, then wanted a female, so I showed her the pic of the white female I have... remember her? Perhaps unsurprisingly, I have not heard back since I emailed her the care packet and adoption form.
Got a call yesterday asking what our hours were. Told em, the rescue is run out of the house, I have a day-job, the rescue's open by appointment. Did they want to make an appointment? No. This isn't a pet store. Sorry?
Got a call today, asking if we still had the rabbit. Asked which rabbit, and they told me Nyler, and I told em, yes we do. Oh, and do we deliver? Oh hell no. The area code was 312, which is Chicago. Pretty sure the vet doesn't deliver their services, and neither do we. Or any pet store, for that matter. Not sorry. Betting those people would think an adoption form and care packet would be too much hassle as well, if they have to make the effort to *gasp* go and pick up their new pet.
Got a text from someone in Carmel, IN, saying they wanted to meet some of the younger chins. So I texted back, asking when they wanted to come by. Nothing. No response, nothing, nada. Makes me wonder, did they think I just bring the rescue to people's houses as well?
Sometimes though, there are things that happen that are totally my fault... like scheduling someone to come tonight (scheduled them weeks ago) to borrow one of my cages. They borrow it around the holidays, every holiday, and usually donate, and very nice people. And the chins they have are from here. Well anyway, few days ago, I had China (chinchilla) go for a trial run, and I gave them that cage. Next thing I know, I flip the page in my planner and see, hey, I'm supposed to be lending out that cage on Monday! Whoops! So today, the person doing the trial run was nice enough to meet me at my work to swap cages, so I could get that one back.
Another person texted and asked if I still had Nyler. I texted em back, literally three minutes later, saying yes I did still have him and he's still available. Nothing. And it's not like I wasted four hours to text this person back, it was three minutes. So at some point, I texted again, asking if they were looking to possibly adopt him. Waaaay later I finally got a response, asking if he was good with dogs and cats, if he was cuddly, and where I was located.
Another positive note, Mudpuddle was officially adopted today! He was out on a trial run since before my grandma died, but we had to reschedule his actual adoption a few times, but finally settled on today, and now he's officially adopted. Who-hoo!!
