|MILLY on Short Street|
This morning was calm and bright! The moon was as big as a beach ball. I saw all the usual suspects, and then some. Neck Wound Kitty, Tuffy, Milly, Red, Scratchy - the black kitty on Stout Street that gets so aroused knowing he is going to eat that he swipes at me. I see five kittens each morning, each at different locations - well three at Baldwin, one at Garson, and one on Pennsylvania and Fourth. I pray the Pennsylvania and Fourth kitten doesn't wind up pregnant, if she is a girl, until I am able to start trapping again. Funds have been tight due to my own cats going into the vet. Buster with her eye condition, Jack with his cough, and a trip to my vet with Wally's cat Larry - whom I rescued when he was very sick from Pennsylvania and Fourth, vetted and bribed Wally into caring for - he is FIV, but a sweet, mostly healthy kitty. Yes, very expensive doctor visits for me these days. Anyway, the other thing I wanted to mention - I do not know who went to my spot on Baldwin and Grand, got the calico kitten and had her spayed and returned her. I can't imagine it would be the neighbors. If any one has an inkling, let me know! Believe me, its a blessing that someone is helping me, even secretly!

I need all the help I can get. But what kind of help is something I need to contemplate on a bit further. I have people asking me 'how can I help', and I don't have an answer because I am so narrow minded going out in the morning just making sure these cats have something to eat and shelter in a storm. I can't see a big picture, so I need to focus on what needs to be done. I do need help. But what.
Have a great day!
