I decided to place a trap at the Parsells location where I have been leaving food for many kitties - I just rescued Skinny Minnie from here. I've had quite a few cats spayed there already. I knew there was another female and a kitten here. I set it, drove off, came back, and voila, a beautiful cat, I believe female. She has huge blue eyes, and by the looks of the coloring, part Siamese.
So there I HAD my quota for the clinic this morning. So off I go to the next few spots and finally I get to Webster/Ferndale, where Crazy Maryleigh hangs. As usual, the hernia kitty that is slowly dying due to this ailment was sitting in the grass waiting for me. This time, as I was leaving after hiding the food here at there, a calico cat/kitten came up crying. She is emaciated. I coaxed her with wet food and she came right over, crying. I had my carrier ready and I swooped her up by the neck, and carried the poor creature to the carrier. She weighs barely two pounds, if that. I am figuring she is JUST UNDER a year old. I am PRAYING that the clinic will take this poor animal and assess it. I will have a leukemia test done on it due to its condition. I have no idea what I will do with it after today. Its too sick and weak to go back out. You know they are friendly when they walk right up to you. This one needs help. Please someone, help me with this decision!

Some really great news, Squirt has made himself at home with his new big human brother, and his feline brother Harold, who came from the exact corner of Third and Central where I had to get the poor boy Red that was struck by a car this past Sunday. Harold was adopted several years back, and just two weeks ago, adopted Squirt, the little baby that walked up to my house out of nowhere!
Here are some pics! (click on pics to see up close!)
