This past weekend was a bit easier than last week was. Number one, I had Friday off, and boy did I need that. After all the shoveling I did last week, I needed down time - away from the desk I sit at for eight hours a day. I still had to clean, cook (which I love to do), and take care of my own cats, but at least I was home sweet home doing it. And I still had to go out there and feed all the homeless, stray and feral cats which I do every single day of my life - at 4:30 a.m., no matter what the weather.
I have to tell you, Charlie, the fluffy unneutered boy (he is going to the clinic this Thursday) on Central, is a mess. My heart went out to him this morning - there he stood waiting for me, in the drizzle, and dampness of the early morning. His coat is a mess, and he just seems very sad. He needs rescuing, for sure.
Jelly, the kitty I rescued from Baldwin a week and a few days ago, has been in hiding in her new home. Her new Mom let her out of the room she was in a bit too soon, and is now not even seen. They know she is there, eating, using the litter box, but she is in hiding. Would love some advice from anyone reading. I would love for them to find her, and put her back in the smaller room to become a bit more socialized. I do know that she will come around, but its going to take time, and patience, on their part. I pray they give her that.
I've also heard good reports on Lacey, the pretty white kitty that I rescued from Second a few months back. She is slowly being introduced to her new feline brother, and her new mom is already in love with her.
The following are pictures from yesterday. Be sure to click on the pictures so that you can see upcloseAs you can see, there is still a lot of snow on the ground from the storm we had last week.
