Yesterday, Stanley was transferred from the King County Humane Society to KC Animal Control. Stanley will be held until Friday to see if someone claims him; Liz and I will go in before that time to fill out what's called a "last resort adoption form." That way, if Stanely can't be adopted out, we will take him and either find a home for him or keep him. I really hope that he finds a nice family, because I think he'd be great with kids.
It's strange - when you help to save a creature's life, that creature's life becomes your responsibility. I don't have an emotional attachment to Stanley per se (I haven't known him long enough for that), but I do want to make sure that he'll be OK.
