Well, guess what. Another rescue! Nehemia is going to be adopted! His new moms name is Azure - such a beautiful name, and obviously a big heart. She also has renamed him Barney! I will be bringing him over to meet his new mom this evening! Hurray! And thanks Julie for finding Azure for me! Azure was one of Julie's fosters for Another Change Pet Rescue, which Julie was the founder/president of. Its disbanded now, but thank goodness the compassion is still in every one of its member's hearts to continue to care for animals. Barney was picked up at the clinic, extremely doped up, and spent a very restless night at my house. Crying all night. This is truly a street cat, that knows nothing about love, gentleness, warmth, and kindness. He just sits and cries and wonders what is happening to him. He is a very beat up cat too. He has lived through quite a few turbulent years being homeless with the weather and just trying to survive the street life. He, along with all the others, surely deserves a home, but its going to take a little while for Barney to get used to it. I pray this girl has nothing but patience and love to give him. Patience is key.
Niles will be put back on the street today. So will Polly, the second twin that Laura successfully trapped yesterday for spaying. Thank you Diane and Laura for your help in cleaning up the area that I feed, shelter and do my best to control the population of hundreds of cats that need help 365 days a year. I do my best with what little resources I have, and most of the time, its just little old me doing it. I am so grateful.
Tomorrow, I set two more traps on Parsells, where I feed under a tree just before my REAL first spot/shelter is. There is another pregnant kitty there that I saw a few days ago, and at least two more cats that have not been spayed/neutered. I have two more appointments scheduled at the clinic tomorrow. Thats four more cats that will not be reproducing in just one week! Wish me luck.

My little Vanessa had to go to the doctor yesterday. She has been 'coughing' - almost like she is going to spit up a hairball, but it never comes up. This has been going on for a while before I decided she should probably be looked at. She may have asthma, they say, and/or an upper respiratory, so after an extra, she was sent home with steroids and Clavamox. To the tune of $191. Thanks Vanessa. And thank you MasterCard. She actually seems to be doing better this morning after her first round of pills! I had some litter donated to me that was very dusty, and that might have triggered it a few weeks ago.
