you will always have our support. and remember you have to do what is right for YOU and the CATS without making it too hard. we cross our paws for adoptions but we certainly know how hard it is as well.


Oh Chrystal. I know this must have been a very difficult decision for you, especially with all you've had going on lately. I want to thank you for taking these kitties in, and giving them a wonderful place to live. (If reincarnation is a thing, I want to come back as a kitty at your place!). I absolutely will still help you try to get Wishers adopted, even the 'less adoptable' ones, if you'd like. I will also donate when I can (which isn't as often as I'd like, but I promise not to forget you and your Wishers.)

I will miss your daily blog. HOWEVER I do know what you mean about a sanctuary. I have always been a sanctuary here. My rescued cats are always going to be here. I do love them all. Some are feral. Some are crippled. I just took two to the vet this morning. One has to have fluids weekly the rest of both our lives. As one gets older and we all do we have to choose our live styles. Please keep putting pets on the pet finder for the Project Hope - Some good folks out there may take a chance of a couple of feral kitties. We will miss you but won't ever forget you.

Just as our lives change and evolve our missions in life do the same. Providing sanctuary for those who need it is a most honorable mission, whether for animal or human, and those who are in your care are blessed indeed!

That's so funny, Chrystal, because I've been thinking for a long time that SO many of your kitty fur babies are not adoptable in the "normal" sense of the word. This does not make what you do any less important! In fact, it becomes more important, because a typical shelter probably wouldn't take the kitties that you do. I will miss seeing you in my inbox several times a week, but I will look forward to reading your posts eagerly when they do appear. You are still, and always will be, my heroine!!

I've followed you a long time and loved reading your stories, whether happy or sad. You have a way with words and a heart of gold. I look forward to continuing to follow your blog. Take care of yourself and all of the cats in the sanctuary.

You are an amazing woman. I have 13 cats and feel overwhelmed at times so I don't know how you do it all. Of course, I will keep reading, I am sorry I don't comment that often.

I understand your decision. It was a difficult one, undoubtedly, and not easily made. But there are stories yet in sanctuary cats. In truth, every adopted cat is a sanctuary cat, in a manner of speaking. My four perma-cats are here to stay (as long as I stay) but there are stories about them that I flatter myself people will read. Those who read your blog will always want to know what new or funny thing one of the cats in your care has done, or how its health is faring.

I think this is a natural trend for rescues: those cats hard to adopt need to be rescued but they don't go anywhere once in the rescue's care. They cannot be abandoned, of course, so they take up the space a newly-rescued cat would take. It is neither a good nor bad development; it simply happens.

I am happy that those who are not adopted have the safety and affection of your home and family. I will continue to read anything you care to report, and hope that there will be much of that.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties

You know I will continue to do fundraisers as long as I can! I'm trying very hard to put one together right now, in fact. I'll miss the stories, but I understand the situation. But I will read every word you do post! :)


John Bellen's words are my words. We will always be here.

Goldie Goodwin

Chrystal, this was a tough decision for you. Life does continue to move on and the trick is knowing when to stay on the path, and when to jump off the path. I think this is your "jump off the path" moment. I'll miss the blog too. I may not comment a lot, but I do read every day. And of course as the proud mom of two "wishers" Max and Dearest I will always have a piece of you with me.
It will all work out the way it is supposed to.

Karen Lucas

You are the only blogger whose posts I have saved to be able to go back and look at often. Maybe another book is in the offing? I know we will all look forward to your Tuesday posts just to keep in touch with all of your furries and I will continue to help out as often as I can manage. John Bellen said it best. Tell us stories about all of your cats and dogs. Hugs
