So, my kittens are nearing 7 weeks old and today I had a woman come out who has passed my application process and moved on to the stage of coming out to meet the kitten she has applied for. She lives in an area of my state that is known for being BAD, like all tenent houses, a real ghetto like area in some parts, high crime, etc. She's a late 60's lady that I've been talking to on the phone and by e-mail for about a week now going through the process with her. She was due at my home between 12:30 and 12:45pm. I had spent the morning finishing up decorating my fireplace mantles with pine greenery and making the dining room and living room nice and pretty. So I'm in the front part of the house watching the road for the look of someone unfamiliar approaching. I knew that she was bringing a friend with her because she was nervous about driving out into the sticks and getting lost. At 12:30 on the button I see a car drive past my house and slow WAY down, stop, back up, drive past again, stop, back up and then finally swing into my driveway. Then I noticed a man step out of the car, a uniformed man. At about the point of the second back up my husband started out the door to tell them they were indeed in the right place. Man was he surprised to run into the Captain of Coventry Police in my driveway! Apparently the woman in her nervousness, called the STATE police and said that she was worried about the possibility of being taken by an internet scam or baited out into the woods and "becoming a statisic" She said she had never adopted an animal off of the internet (my ad was on craigslist) and that she had never been to my area before and was scared. So, they told her that they would connect her to the Coventry police. Who then laughed and told her that she was probably over-reacting but that the Captain lives on my road and would be going on lunch break soon so he would stop in. Well he certainly did stop in, and he was such a nice guy, he just wanted to see the kittens and play with them for a few minutes. We all had a good laugh about the city lady in a high crime area being afraid for her safety to come out to a farm. It's a good thing my husband and I have a very good sense of humor. She did show up by the way, about 20 minutes after the Captain left, and she is a nice lady who will give the kitten a good home. And she says to me "Well at least you know by me calling the police that I'm a good person!" What a world we live in today!
