Garson will be going to the vet tomorrow for leukemia testing, fingers crossed. Today, he will spend the day in my warm cozy bathroom where he has soft blankets to lay on, a window to watch the birds at the feeder, and as much food and water as he wants! And cuddles galore! He will be ready for adoption anytime!
Not so great news about Blackie, the little guy I fed for years inside a garage, and then under the porch after the city decided to board the garage up, with my shelters and all inside. No matter that this was 'home' to at least three regular cats - but we found alternative homing under the porch, with straw, and tote shelters placed under there. Then the evil people came and after confrontation, involving the police, I had to relocate these animals. I could only do Blackie, who had an offer to live in the country, Branchport to be exact. A co-worker had a barn situation and was looking for kitties. I was hesitant after a few bad situations with barn rehoming, but I brought him out there anyway. He escaped after a day and I thought I had lost him forever. He wound up comiing out of whereever he was hiding, and being so comfortable there that he began peering through their windows, like he wanted to come inside! They fell in love with Blackie, and wanted to make him an indoor baby, and took him to the vet yesterday for shots, and testing for leukemia. Poor baby, tested positive. Here is our exchange:
Caught our boy this morning but bad news. FeLV +. I'm sick about it.

So there you have it. Blackie will live out his days in comfort, and loved. It couldn't have turned out better.
Thank you all for reading, and have a great day!
