To throw a little good news in, Lucky #1, the kitten I rescued from this very spot a few weeks ago, is being spayed today, and she has potential adopters coming to meet her tomorrow! Lets pray this is a match. I've had little Lucky since last evening so that she could be 'prepped' for her surgery this morning (no food) and brought to the clinic by me. Tracy, my neighbor, who has been fostering her, is going to be very sad to see her go. She really is a cutie pie.
Another kitten I've wanted to rescue has been mysteriously spayed unbeknownst to me (I have a sneaking suspicion I know who did it - :)), and I held her this morning and told her I would be getting her a home very soon too. She is a little doll, and is the sister of one of the other kittens I rescued there three months ago. I must get her off the street too, if anyone is willing to foster her, it would be a blessing. Here is her picture!

Here is another unneutered fellow who allows me to pet him while he hungrily gobbles the food I leave on the porch on Garson, where I cannot place shelters because the owner hates me and the cats, and throws out the bowls every chance he has when he comes by to work on this boarded up house. This little guy is ready for a home too. The kitten that has been hanging around here will not come close to me unfortunately, so I will have to keep working on him. He allowed me to touch him the very first time, but not since.
Well, its now a mad scramble for me to get ready for work, but I before closing, I want to say thank you to each and every one of you who has reached out to me to offer help, whether it be baking something for the people that allow me to feed on their properties, or offering gift baskets to give to them, or purchasing food for me, or monetary donations. I just couldn't keep doing what I do without that support - its so overwhelming to me each morning, but I get through it one day at a time. The weather that will soon arrive I have no power over, and these poor animals will suffer. I must reinforce my shelters, and I need help. What I need are cinder blocks, if any of you have any lying around? I need to replace tarp on some of these spots, and place the heavy blocks on top to keep them during the windstorms that are due to arrive.
Thanks for reading, and have a great day!
