They were all out in full swing, dodging the snow, but hungry enough to trudge through it to get to the bowls overflowing with food. They are SO hungry each morning, and so happy to chow down on the delicious wet, warm food I give them. I have found that the shredded canned food works best because there have been days where the pate type food will actually harden due to it being so cold out. I have to set the containers in the snow while I do other things when I am at each shelter, and it adds to the hardening process. The shredded stuff doesn't freeze as fast, and is much easier to pour.
These fellas below all need permanent adopters:
I was unsuccessful at grabbing the sick little fellow on Niagara. I pulled into the complex, first spotting a tabby eating something out of the trash receptacle there. I grabbed the food, water, bowls and carrier and walked over to the crevice where I placed the food down yesterday. There was sick boy, waiting for me. But he wouldn't get close enough for me to grab him. I would normally begin to place medicine in their food bowls, but there are so many cats, I can't be sure if the sick one is getting the medicine. Clavamox. I will try again tomorrow. I really hesitate to rescue another cat due to having three cats unadopted thus far - Cammy, Hermie and Murphy/Simba - wait, and Buttons and Cuddles too! - but knowing a cat is sick and living outside, in a crevice no less, I just can't turn my back. I will keep trying. This is why its so important to foster and adopt these sweet babies.
These fellas below need fostering so that I can rescue them off the streets:
