|Rowan and all the food he collected!|
"Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all who helped Rowan (Janine Wagner) FEED A CAT FOR CHRISTMAS. We dropped everything off to Janine Wagner yesterday! He collected 100.45 lbs of dry food, & 70 cans of wet food! Makes my heart happy!

Jody Nolan That is newsworthy Pattie Inzer Hill.. You should contact your local paper about his project and hopefully it will raise community awareness of the plight of these animals and what Janine and you do to help prevent furthering the feral cat community and fostering those that you try to domesticate and find homes for.
Thank you to the three of you for feeding these hungry kitties!
And what a morning it was. There were so many cats this morning. Ones I've never seen before. There were cat fights galore too. At Pennsylvania and 4th, I had to cross over some 'lawns' to try to stop a vicious fight. I can't imagine how these cats can tear each other apart. Its a horrible sound. We know these are unneutered cats, their hormones raging. At Baldwin and Grand, the sweetest little older kitten, a red one, no ear tip, was playing in the grass. At the end of my feeding, I walked slowly over to it and it would have allowed me to pet it until it saw a cat coming up from behind me. A black one I rarely see there also, friendly. I drove away with my heart to the floor, knowing this could be a wonderful pet for someone, and its just a baby, and to be leaving it there. But surpassing the sad feeling of this, my Jeep began to let me know that its ailing by making another sound and bleeping 'check gages'. I am in, once again, for hundreds of dollars to fix whatever is wrong.
The temps are in the 40s and 50s, T-shirt weather. Unbelievably wonderful. In comparison to last year where for almost two months, the temps never reached higher than 10 degrees.
If you'll all recall, Sweet Pea and Charlie. Little Charlie was a fluff ball kitten that walked up to me on Central and Fifth, where so many cats have been rescued from. Pic below is when Sweet Pea was just rescued. Look how dirty she was. A kind girl named Candy opened up her heart and home, and adopted both together!

Have a great day!
