And I swallowed another bug this morning.
Other than that, I have not heard from the man on Parsells whose steps I left a message on asking if I could place my shelters on his property. I continue to return to this spot after my rounds each morning to replenish the water and food because there is a family of raccoons I catch each and every time gobbling up everything. So after I scare them away, I return home, knowing they surely will return to ruin the water for the day for these animals in this heat.
There is a new muted calico that is not ear tipped on Pennsylvania that I think may be in heat. She was crying a lot the other morning. She is very petite and demure, and I am sure she has already had a few litters by the looks of her. I will need help with trapping this one because there are so many that were already done years ago. I don’t want them to fall for the regular trap I would set, and me having to let them go. I need an expert drop trapper!
Speaking of trapping, my mother has three kittens she is feeding at her house in Webster. I lent her some traps to use and will get the kittens fixed if she can get them – Momma has already been done.
These beautiful animals need a home and fast. Until they are gone, I can rescue no others. Please spread the word.
Have a GREAT day.
(the following is a poem taken from the New York Times Style magazine about immortality just before slipping out of reach.) I had just finished an article about NDEs (near death experiences) - yes, this was my Sunday. :)
one day they showed me a dark moon ringed with a bright nimbus on a swirling gray screen they called it my last chance for never ending life but the next day it was gone it had already launched itself into the gray sky like an escape capsule accidentally empty sent spiraling into the unpeople galaxies of my trackless gray body
