As I reflected on this conversation, I thought about the trash that was left from the people moving all the stuff inside this elderly woman's house, where the shelters were. Whoever removed the contents of the house left half of this poor woman's precious memorabilia - photos, returned checks from the bank, all sorts of personal stuff, on the lawn. I thought, this woman is complaining about the cats, but look at the yard next door. I personally would even clean it up if it made any difference to these ignorant people. But I don't really think it would.
|PARSLEY was rescued from this dumpy area on Parsells|
There are at least four cats there this morning, two friendly. One of the smaller tabbies, sweet boy, is very sick. I must bring him Clavamox tomorrow, and I must get him out of there. He will make a sweet soulmate for someone. The other is the fluffy boy that I've been feeding for many years on Parsells. He would also be a good boy for someone. The others are semi-feral, and won't get too close to me.
Another revelation this weekend. Remember how I said someone insane was doing crazy stuff at the shelters on Baldwin and Grand? There is a nice man that lives next door to this lot named Mark, a black man, who lives there with his family. Across the street is a nice black man named Larry. I had left them both notes to call me if they saw anyone messing with the shelters there, and I never did get a call. Well, Mark was leaving for work or whatever when I was there Sunday morning, and he said that there was a woman coming around, and that at first, he thought it might be someone I knew, and then he asked her and she said she had 'talked to' me and she had permission. Well, he put two and two together, he said she sounded crazy, and she had a back pack. Yup. Crazy Maryleigh. I KNEW it. He told her not to be messing with anything there, and hopefully he nipped it in the bud. I can't wait to see her again. Just last week she left a plate of some kind of food inside the shelter. Crazy B. I hope I don't have to deal with her again.
There are a ton of cats out there that need to be spayed and neutered. I need help. Tomorrow, Esmeralda goes in for spay (I don't think she is pregnant like I thought last week), and so does the boy cat my niece has. Momma cat, her other cat that was in labor for 24 hours at least and delivered many dead babies, is doing well. So is her son, yet unnamed, although I hear he is a 'screamer'. :)
Have a great day.
