Pass it On...
I pulled up to my 9th spot this morning on Sixth, where there were five cats waiting for me in the dilapidated garage, and my cell phone went off indicating a text. Who's texting me at 5:35 am.? It was a friend, and she wrote "Laying in my warm bed thanking God you are there for the strays." After I sent a quick note back telling her I had just pulled up to five waiting kitties, I thought to myself, that note was so nice to get. Someone was actually thinking of me. At that time of the morning. Someone actually acknowledged that I was out there, at that moment, in the bitter cold of 17 degrees that morning. That made my morning.
Now I am certainly not bragging, who could brag about sadness? But I don't know who else is doing what I am doing, although I am sure there are others, and I would love to know - are they doing it religiously like I do? Do they struggle to do what I do, like I do? Does it take them over an hour in good weather, hour and half or more in bad weather, like I do? Do they feed over 50 cats, that they can see, every single day, like I do? I would love to know. I would love to know how they get their strength, and energy, and funding. I would love to know if they have someone helping them, someone encouraging them in this seemingly never ending journey of trying to make a homeless cat's life just a little less miserable.
I am trying to rescue each of these sweet cats out there, one at a time. But I need help. I need people to take these kitties in as fosters, and keep them warm and safe as we try to market them, sell them, entice people to realize that these cats are worth it, and they would make such wonderful companions. I've lost my one and only foster - she did the best that she could - she is thinking of her other cats, and she doesn't want to stress them. That's OK. But I do need more people to open up their hearts and homes to take a little one off the street this winter, and give it the love they deserve. Think about it, and pass it on. I could use all the help I can get in this crazy mission I am on!
