|Alexis and her babies|
I saw another pregnant kitty this morning on Central and Third. At least I think I did. Usually, I am saying hello to "Roofy", who is a black and white kitty that lives in the box on the porch there, and waits for me in the morning. Again, its dark out, and Roofy keeps - what I thought was a he - his distance. But this cat looked like it had a big belly, and maybe had some calico in her - from the looks of her coloring.

Then you have a lack of foster people in this city. With the closing of Another Chance Pet Rescue, a lot of fosters were gone. My friend Julie, who founded the group, was unjustly accused of impropriety with the funds that were donated to the group, which was proven wrong, but it wound up costing a lot of heartache, and she left the rescue she founded in the hands of her accusers. That group has since folded, and it has hurt not only a lot of people, but the animals that depended on the rescue. I used to be able to call Julie, and no matter what, if the cat was pregnant, she would say 'get it and we'll figure something out'. Now there is no one willing to take in these pregnant, ready to burst cats, to at least hold them until they can be spayed. Most are feral, or semi. But then again, those that seem feral, or semi, could just be frightened after being left out on the streets for so long, and you never know their true personality until they learn to trust you, and get comfortable being indoors where its safe and warm.
Sorry to leave you with this, but its something to think about - its something that we all need to take responsibility for. It matters so much to the animals that need our help.
Have a nice day.
