Below are pictures I was able to get on Saturday morning before my crappy camera died on me. I hate that camera so much.
This morning it was absolutely miserable out. Not only did it rain steadily all day yesterday, Sunday, but it poured steadily all night long. I left the house at 4:15 this morning to a steady heavy mist falling on every strand of my hair. It will now be a frizz ball for the rest of this week, after having paid to get it straightened last week. My hair abhors the humidity. And I abhor my hair when its humid out. But never mind my hair, its the poor animals. The first and second picture below is the only spot I have that has no shelter whatsoever. I started putting food here on Parsells in early spring because of the many kitties I saw there as I was headed to my REAL first spot. I have TNRd at least four here, and rescued one. The red beauty below is new. I place the bowls down even in the rain, knowing they will stand there in the rain and eat, they are so hungry.
Then there are the towels. I replaced most of them at all 16 locations. Soaking wet. I am not sure how all that moisture gets inside the shelters I've built. Maybe its the tarps I have draped over the shelters, maybe some are not waterproof. I wish I had the perfect shelters at each of these locations. These cats really depend on them. I pray the rain ends today. We've all had enough.

I know my concerned friends think I am nuts. But I will tell you this. I would rather die trying to save an animal than................. well, I don't know how to end that sentence. But if I suspect an animal is hurting, I will do everything in my power to help that animal. Period. Thank you for your concern. :)
Here are more pictures of Frisco, the kitty who had a chicken bone lodged in his mouth. He needs a home desperately. Please spread the word:
And now, go and have a great day!
