So get this, Kristin came over from Churchville Sunday morning to help me fix up a shelter, which turned out to be me holding her hostage in my car and taking her to three other shelters for her to help me with checking out the totes and the straw inside, and to my garden. AND to show her where Maryleigh lived, who by the way was outside scrubbing her house, all the boxes had been removed from her porch, and there was a large bowl of fresh water on her driveway, presumably for the cats. NOT to mention a very large trap sitting upright, looked as if she had cleaned it and it was drying. On our way back on Melville, I spotted a woman and young girl talking to an older woman in a car, just two doors down from the tree where I feed all these cats, where I've TNR'd at least five, and rescued at least three from here. The Smudge, Mel, and .... who else? Anyways, I had been thinking about the coming weather and where would these cats go, and be sheltered - their food and them, when the weather began to get rough? I wanted to talk to SOMEone around there with some compassion. After getting out, introducing ourselves, turns out Heidi is a cat lover, animal lover all the way around. Her mother was just leaving, and she said 'I read about you in the paper!" HA! Anyways, Heidi told me that the man in the house next door - who rented out two apartments, did not receive a certificate of occupancy, which you need to rent out, so the tenants left, and one left four cats. So THIS is where these beautiful animals came from! How can anyone do such a thing? She also said I could put the food and shelters in the little alcove under the porch A nice little spot that will also shelter them from the western storms that hit us. I left there elated, although good God, I didn't need another location to feed at! What does this make -- 17? ugggh.
Another incident: Noodles is being fostered, with possible adoption just ahead! Two wonderful people came over and met him on Friday, and instantly fell in love. Saturday morning, they came and catnapped her right then and there! I miss my little snaggletooth. :) Here is what they have to say: Noodles says he misses you but he'll put up with us if necessary! He's doing well -had a good first night in his new room ( I checked on him twice). He did hide under the dresser ( I guess a double bed wasn't good enough )but came out to play and get some love! Went and got some more food and KMR for him and Gary is teaching him to watch golf on T.V. with him. Men!!!! Seriously Janine our cats seem to be o.k. with him and he seems to be doing well. Come visit if you want! June

"I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter,
and all the animals on the street...
the cast-offs of human soiciety.
I saw in their eyes love and hope,
fear and dread, sadness and betrayal.
And I was angry. "God," I said, "this is terrible!
Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke
softly. "I have done something,"
He replied. "I created You."
