CONGRATULATIONS KATHY R.!!!  You helped me to feed over 90 cats this morning!  It was a damp and miserable morning, lots of wet towels (seepage from the rains we had - some of the tarp are not waterproof!).  I can't tell you how much I appreciate the kindness of all of you who have donated to this cause.  This is all these cats have to look forward to, I think, in their miserable conditions that they live in, despite the little huts filled with straw that they can get some rest in, hopefully, when I am not there.  I would love to have cameras at certain spots recording what goes on.  Again, thank you Kathy for your help today.
Mini Moo

Thanks to the kindness of the shop owner I was telling you about, who recently lost her cat and wanted to adopt from me another kitty, I was able to grab Mini Moo this morning from Melville.  He's a little freaked out being inside a home, but he's as sweet as can be.  He will go into the clinic today for a wellness check, and a leuk test (say a prayer).   He leaves behind two kittens, a grey adult, a fluffy red adult, and a calico adult.  Those are the ones I can see.  I was telling Eileen that I have neutered and spayed at least seven cats from this street since I started to feed there, and have rescued at least five already!

So there.  You see - you know who - my posts aren't always sad!  Someone mentioned that they don't read this blog that often because its sad.  Well, there is good and there is bad.  I totally get it - I immediately have to turn the channels if something sad related comes on if it involves an animal.  But never forget that without this blog, I could not have rescued at least 80 cats so far since the beginning of this year.  That's 80 cats off the streets of Rochester.  To me, that's amazing.  I am proud of myself and I am thankful to those of you who have adopted from me, because without you, I couldn't have rescued all those cats. 


Lets not forget Cammy today either.  Cammy, since his rescue, has been relegated to a single room (which IS better than the streets, I know) and needs a whole house to grow in.  He is a lovable creature who just happens to have FIV.  Lets find Cammy a home.  But I do want to thank Karen from GRASP for fostering Cammy.  I can't begin to thank her enough.  I keep telling her as soon as I get some of the cats in my home a home, Cammy is coming to me.  Thank you KAREN!

Have a GREAT DAY everyone!
