Well, it was all about Maryleigh this morning. Crazy Maryleigh. She likes to be the star of the show every day, and today she was.
First let me say, the woman from another rescue group that 'passed the buck' so to speak called me and left me a very nice message. She sounds sweet also. She never meant to upset me, and I want to reach out to her and pat her on the back and tell her its ok! :) The only thing I would ask is that more people offer to help this lady, because I don't know where to begin. I have so much on my plate - as we all do, but she could use more advice than I can give her about getting the kitties trapped at her house. Kittens I believe. Its hard for me to even make phone calls during the week, between my full time job and the kittens, and today, THREE TNR's.
When I TNR (trap neuter return), its difficult because I am ALSO going around to 16 different locations and feeding over 70 cats each morning. What normally takes me one hour and fifteen minutes took me nearly two hours today. I figured I would start at Ferndale and Webster and try for the hernia kitty. I had a phone call yesterday that a woman was willing to take the cat and see what she could do for it. So I set two there, and left Kings sitting on the front steps to thwart ML in case she came by. I drove off to do some other spots, keeping in mind that if I didn't get any there, I couldn't feed at certain spots so that I could try for the kitties that need spay/neuter there. So it was very haphazard, driving around, and checking in with Kings, who three times texted she was lurking. At one point, he said snuck by and closed the traps.
TNR's this morning:

The following pictures are three cats that are next on my list. I must rescue them and find them homes. Cammy, Prince Charming, and Marmalade. All three are still on the streets. As I pulled up to Cammy's spot on Central and Fifth this morning, there was something in the road. My heart nearly stopped. I thought, God is that Cammy? I got out, walked over to the dead animal, and it turned out to be a raccoon. I went back to the truck and got some paper towels and picked it up by its tail, saying a little prayer at the same time. These babies need a home so bad. They are sweet, gentle and loving. Please consider foster and adoption before something happens to them. Spread the word. These cats deserve attention, and love.

Have a nice day!
