Lost (but not forgotten!)

Alas, while I enjoy occasionally leaving my lil’ critters out for adoption, I get some where they seem to enter a twilight zone of no return. If I don’t hear back on the critter’s status after a couple of days, I consider them lost and possibly gone the way of the trash can. Here’s where I post up any of my lil’ buddies that have gone unheard from…until further notice, they’re considered lost to the great trash compactor in the sky. 😦 If you know of the whereabouts of any of these guys, let me know! 🙂

*Unless otherwise mentioned, all were dropped off in the Houston, TX area.

    these make me ridiculously happy, and also sad. I hope they have nice lives. I think I will be spending too much time watching your hashtag this sdcc. This will be a definite comic con goal.

    This is awesome!

    Just came across your website (and then your fb page) via boredpanda. I absolutely love your idea of dropping them various places to be adopted. Wish we lived closer so that we could track one down (our 4yr daughter would be just as excited as us lol), but alas, the Midwest is a bit far.
