Saturday was a ten-hour travel day. Here’s what I got out of the deal. I spent the entire day with Younger Daughter who had the day off and was able to go with me. I turned over FIVE felines to someone I trust. Because of this person, I was able to take this group of five into my world and out of the weather and the dangers of trying to survive on their own. I got to see and visit with (if only briefly) this person who is my friend. (And she brought me delicious cinnamon bread.) I have the gigantic satisfaction of knowing that Mom Cat and four itty bitties are on their way to real homes - never to struggle and suffer on their own, never to become part of the cycle of massive reproduction. Ten hours of travel worth it? You bet!
Jeanne of Random Felines was the other half of this transport, and the safe haven for Mom Cat and kittens. What did she get out of the deal? She got to spend TEN hours on the road, too. She took in five fosters on top of what she already has. They will be in her care until they go to the shelter she has in mind. What Jeanne basically did was to give up a Saturday for me and for five feline lives. I am completely maxed out in my cathouse. I couldn’t have left mom and babies out there to fend for themselves. And I had NO PLACE to permanently keep this group. Jeanne literally came to my rescue. How do you thank someone for something like that?
Now what we’re ALL hoping you will do is to play The Name Game. For a very small donation you can offer names for these kittens, their mom, and three foster puppies I have in my kennel right now. You can learn all about The Name Game by clicking here. Help us name the puppies and kittens (and Mom Cat, too) and help me keep helping the homeless while you play. My sincere desire is this. By month’s end, I will have the extra in Shiloh’s chip-in (which includes the donations from The Name Game), the donations that came in via Andrea’s FUNdraiser, and the funds I hope come in through the Fourth Winnie’s Wish Walkway brick event. I should be well set up to get through the Winter - pay for Shiloh’s surgery, for the neuters and for the spays still to come, continue to give the kitten vaccination series to NINE kittens, and still have money to use for food, food, food, and litter, litter, litter. THANK YOU to everybody who is helping out this rescue with toy purchases, contributions to Shiloh’s surgery, and donations to play The Name Game. Anybody who wants a brick this time around - that event will begin THIS Wednesday. And for the rest of this month, I will be WISHING for forever homes for my Winnie’s Wish kitties.
Here are the pictures from Saturday.
Have a great day!
