As soon as word got out, the workers were thrilled, as he was a favorite with the staff. One woman who had become especially attached to him started to cry with happiness. We gave the SPCA a modest donation and you'd think we had single-handedly saved the place from bankruptcy, everyone was so grateful.
The adoption paperwork went smoothly and the staff were good enough to pack up Clarence's toys and favorite food for us to take home. He has spent the week sleeping, eating and exploring his new home, which we're trying to make as calm and loving as we can. Now he just needs to gain some weight!
