I trapped another kitty on Melville, not the pretty sweet calico I tried for, and not the pretty sweet grey kitty female I wanted, but this feral I've named Melvin. He, and another that a friend is trapping on Hebard, a white pregnant girl, will go to the clinic today. Here is Melvin: Poor baby.
Then there is the Master, Laura, who tried to get the kitty with the huge lump hanging from her belly on Webster and Ferndale. Unfortunately, that CRAZY BITCH (and I am so sorry if I have offended anyone with that, but my feelings towards this woman are pretty bad) Crazy Maryleigh (that is her official name - well, the second part - did some research on her) was hanging about there. Turns out Laura happened to be there at the same time this woman comes by from her house a street down, knowing I have finished placing food there, just to throw out the food I've left for these starving animals. She saw the set up to trap this cat, and went ballistic. She kicked over the trap three or four times, threw food, called 911, and took pictures. This is a woman that claims that the 20 or so cats that I have viewed outside her house, are all hers - most of them unspayed/neutered. Including Frisco, the kitty that nearly died with the chicken bone stuck on the roof of its mouth, including the little red kitty that was struck by a car two weeks ago and is now in the caring hands of a foster, and now including the one Laura is trying to trap with the tumor on its belly. Trying to do the humane thing for this animal. I have found homes for FIVE cats just this year from this spot. Since I was feeding on these corners a few years ago, I have found homes for at least five others. Laura wanted to trap this kitty because she said it would be a simple procedure to remove it, I forgot what she called it, but it would need to be done. She offered, and I never refuse Laura. :) SOMETHING must be done about this. There has got to be a law to protect those of us that are trying to make this city a better place, for both human and animal, to co-exist. We are trying to alleviate the suffering of these animals, and the reproduction of so many, by spaying and neutering, There has got to be a law to prevent the prevention of this. This woman must be stopped. I am beside myself - I have a call in to my police friend to get her advice. If anyone knows anything about the laws, please comment!
The kittens are doing well, tomorrow the other two, Meadow and Haven, will be going to the clinic for their wellness check, and determine their sex for sure, which I do believe both are female. So we have three males, and two females, all 9 weeks old, and sweeter than honey. All need homes. Please please spread the word.
Have a nice day.
The Prayer Of A Stray
Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain.
And dear God I pray as I run in the rain,
that someone will love me and give me a home.
A warm cozy bed I can call my own.
My last owner neglected me and chased me away
to rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now, God, I'm tired and hungry and cold.
And I'm afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with stones
while I run in the streets just looking for bones!
I'm not really bad, God, please help me if you can.
For I have just become a "VICTIM OF MAN"!
I'm wormy, Dear God, and I'm ridden with fleas
and all that I want is an owner to please!
If You find one for me, God, I'll try to be good.
I won't run away and I'll do as I should.
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
cause I'm getting so weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
cause I'm so afraid, God, that I'm gonna die!
And I've got so much love and devotion to give,
that I should be given a new chance to live.
So, dear God, PLEASE, PLEASE answer my prayer
and send me somebody who WILL really care...
