Thursday! One more day!!! :)

Charlie and Bobby

I forgot to mention other activities of the past weekend.  Monet was adopted on Saturday to my old neighbor and friend Deanna and her family, where newly named Monet - SEBASTIAN - joins his brother and sister Peanut Butter and Oreo.   Its hard giving up a cat that you've rescued and put money, faith, time and love into, but knowing he is in a good home makes it worth it.  The same with my little Cricket - he is with his new family now, and I couldn't have asked for anything better.
My little buddies, Bobby and Charlie, who were rescued from a situation on Central Park, were brought to a no-kill shelter in Victor, NY, where they are getting love and attention from their temporary family, along with many other little furry friends there.  They will get the time and attention they need, while I could not give that to them with my full-time job - and they will go to the best families, as potential adopters are screened to the max.  I can't wait to hear how my babies have fared since I let them go!  Deanna!  Norma!  Hear my plea!  :)

It was quiet in the hood this morning.  I rained overnight, so the humidity level was sky high, and the temperatures are still in the 70s at 5 am!  My friend Laura has offered to try trapping Nicky - a/k/a Neck Wound Kitty on Parsells again tomorrow morning, so I fed less there this morning.  Garson Avenue kitties continue to have their bowls taken away from them daily, so I keep replacing them, but I wonder who is actually doing it.  No one is living in this house right now, but I think it is being slowly renovated - and whether or not someone is working on it, I think someone is taking pleasure in just driving by and trashing my stuff on a daily basis.  On Ferndale and Webster, my other trouble spot, its been two days in a row that the bowls under a tree haven't been touched.  I will be rescuing a kitty I had spayed there on Sunday morning to bring to a barn situation in Caledonia, along with Precious, another female on Central.   Since the last catastrophe with my poor Angel and another kitty at the stables at Finger Lakes Racetrack this past early spring, with them escaping and never to be seen again, I am hesitant and want to be sure that this method of bringing cats to barns is foolproof.  I've been instructing the man who will care for them on how to set up the cages, etc. and when to let them out.  Prayers for these babies, and Angel and other kitty too.

I wish you all a great day!


  1. Looking good Janine, lets hope the hoodoo that lurks on your blogger device has gone for good . Sure did miss the updates, but obviously, it is business as usual for you and your colonys, fab. efforts this week xoxox

  2. That must have been so hard to let Bobby and Charlie go, but it was for the best. I'm glad that Monet is settling in to his new home. At least you can go visit him!
