On my route yesterday, I ran into this man John, who has allowed me to shelter and feed behind his property for a few years now, ever since I got kicked off Grand Avenue after Wally moved. He was running late, and I gave him a ride to a food shelter down the street. Apparently he hasn’t been doing too good lately, and is not working. He also mentioned that he is moving in October. He told me he had to get rid of his dog Silver, a beautiful German Shepard, and was trying to find someone to take him before he had to take him to RAS (Rochester Animal Control). Very sad. He did say, however, that he would tell the new tenants about me, and the shelter behind there, and would hope they would respect that. I hope so. This is the location where I rescued Sylvester, Stanley, and Sadie. This is where my Earl came from! This is just houses down from where Neck Wound Kitty hangs, and a few others that I’ve TNR’d there, that I feed at a boarded house that will be occupied at some point soon. A man has purchased the house, along with the house next door, and is fixing it up. In the meantime, he has allowed me to shelter and feed kitties on the porch. What a nice man.
I have not seen the Baldwin kittens, those being Cricket’s siblings. It saddens me to not know what has happened to them, so I can only pray they are safe – that someone has caught them and is keeping them safe. I have also not seen one of the two nursing moms there in two days. I did, however, see a nursing mom that looks pregnant again. I also saw an orange cat that looked pretty pregnant yesterday at this location.
On Central, at my new spot, where I placed two tote shelters and boards down for rain cover, these were moved – I found them this morning down a ways from where I had it set up yesterday morning. I thought perhaps it is the city workers, and they came and mowed the lawn there in the vacant lots – I hope and pray it was. I placed the shelter back up again and am hoping that they will stay today. Rain is expected later today, and there are a lot of kitties here that need this food.
