I think the geese were about 4-6 years old when I found them. I created huts for them out of large bales of hay and the next year for the first time, Lucy & Jim had a baby. They hadn't had proper nutrition or shelter to make a nest, so that was a big deal!
Thanks again for sharing the youtube link, it warmed my heart."

On wings so golden and so light
She was just a tiny kitten you see
A small frail baby that was set free
I did my best to give her warmth and love
But it did not stop the angels coming from above
I picked her up and held her close to my heart
and wondered why she had to depart
I feel I've failed this tiny kitten
And my heart breaks as I was so smitten
Then I heard whispers in my ears
As I wept soft warm tears
The angels said she wasn’t meant to stay
She wasn’t meant to live this way
She wasn’t meant to stay for me
Her soul was meant to soar free
So I cry no more for little her
As she is happy and singing her sweet purr
I know I will see her beautiful again someday
When it’s my turn for the angels to come take me away.
Fly free little baby, you were loved.

Lets not forget that these mothers will need to be adopted into good homes. And lets not forget, rescue cats make the best cats. Cute? Cuddly? Affectionate? Sure. Everyone knows that cats are the cutest pets alive, and the most huggable and petable. Rescue cats are the most affectionate and loyal pets imaginable. What you may not be aware of is that cats are the best teachers! Cats spend most of their time (when they are not cat-napping) trying to teach their human companions about things they should know in life. Here are just a few examples of life's lessons that a talented cat can illustrate.
Life Lessons for Humans from Cats
1.Actually, cat-napping itself is a good lesson."Get plenty of rest, and you will be ready for anything," I say.
2.Ever watch a cat wash himself? "Personal hygiene is essential."
3.Where would the world be without healthy curiosity? Who would discover the next great invention without curiosity? "Learn to be curious, and you will expand your horizons."
4.Patience. Ever watch a cat watching something? "Patience and self-control will enlighten your life."
5.If a cat wants something, he won't give up until he has it. "You have to overcome any obstacle to get where you want to be."
6.Cats are the best at playing. All it takes is a little piece of string. "Playing and having fun add spice to life."
7.Finally, and most importantly, a cat is above all a little ball of love. "Love is the most important lesson of all."
So you see, if you adopt a rescued cat, you will have the opportunity to give a great deal. But you will receive even more. Take it from me, the expert.

I spoke to my mother yesterday who just adopted two adult cats I got off the street for her, Nelson and Gracie. You would think that adult cats that have been living on the streets for so long would be hardened to humans, but it has been my experience, 100% of the cats I've rescued (over 40 now?) have all turned out to be the most wonderful, sweet, grateful, well behaved pets to their adopters. My mother can't believe how these two have turned out in the past few weeks she has had them. Nelson (now named Benny) follows her from room to room, and lays on her bed at night. Gracie loves to be on her lap most of the time. These cats are just so grateful for our companionship and giving them a second chance at life. Won't you please consider one of these precious babies for your home?

On another note, I was asked by a dog friend (no, its not a dog, she's just into dogs more...) to share this in case there was some interest. I am a huge ANY KIND OF animal lover - it just so happens I feed cats. So, I share this:
"The link I sent you is a message from ASPCA regarding legislation that would greatly help puppy mill dogs. By clicking on it you are brought to an email that you can send to your legislators. I thought your bloggers would be interested in this. Thanks. Kim" http://capwiz.com/aspca/issues/alert/?alertid=32733501

I will post a picture of Daisy for everyone. Please remember, these mother cats will not be as adoptable as their cute offspring, so please consider adopting a mother cat! Older cats make the best cats as far as I am concerned, because they are SO grateful to you for giving them warmth, love, food and shelter. They know you rescued them off these mean streets!
