|Domino, recently rescued and adopted! Thank you Joy! (does he look happy, or what!)|
That is, another cat was rescued, and another one TNR'd over the weekend. With the help of a new friend, whom I have never met - and look forward to at my upcoming 'fun'raiser' this Saturday (oh, I am getting nervous! :)), I was able to get a few clinic appointments at Lollipop Farm clinic over the weekend. Now, normally, Lollipop has only one spay/neuter day, on Fridays. But apparently, with the help of a grant through some kind person, they have been able to add extra days recently to help the feral/homeless baby producing population by performing spays and neuters, for $40 per cat, which does not include flea treatment, deworming, etc. Just your basic snip, rabies and distemper shots.

The one I rescued Sunday morning is the calico sister feral kitten of black feral kitten that I rescued last Tuesday, Piper. Hooray! Piper was delivered, after surgery, to her foster home to join her sister. And speaking of, I was actually able to hold this little black feral girl, who is feral no more, although still a bit scared. I think it will take a while for her calico sister Piper to come around, but I am sure she will, and then they will be ready for adoption! Thank you Julie D. and her daughters!!
The other kitty was from my first spot at Parsells and is a boy, Sammy. Feral, or semi-feral (he waits for me to replenish the food and then leave from a distance), he spent the night on my porch, and poor thing endured the severe storm we had over night. Boy was that a doosey. We had drenching rain, and here I still have a hole in my dilapidated roof already. I am surprised I did not see any visual damage this morning, i.e. flooding inside, but I am sure there is damage building up under the shingles, due to the visible corroding of my dry wall in the attic that I turned into a master bedroom many years ago shortly after moving into my house.
I have a clinic spot tomorrow, Tuesday, at Rochester Community Animal Clinic on Bay. I should be rejoicing in my two latest over the weekend, but there is a pregnant tabby on Hayward, who, with the little black boy that hungrily awaits me, and nudges me until I place the food down each day, she will get close enough for me to touch her. She is now limping, and pregnant. I got a hold of her neck this morning, and scrunched, but not good enough, because she struggled just before me setting her free. My intention was to place her in a carrier until the appointment on Tuesday. Now, she won't trust me again for a while. I will have to place black kitty in the carrier tomorrow so I can set the trap, and hope that she will go in, out of the other four that lurk, that I have already trapped, neutered and returned. Wish me luck!
I think that makes 26 cats rescued this year? And 28 TNR's on top of that? Yea! Great news!
Have a great day!
