All Quiet on the Home Front

I have four little kittens spending the weekend with me.  Wish me luck.  They are adorable.  Lucy, Jace, Jinx and Jules.  All rescued, and all available for adoption.  Please consider!

Lucy and Jace



Things were quiet out there this morning.  All the usual suspects (the cats) were there, but nothing, nobody, the woman, nor the city, touched my stuff.  She either had a change of heart, or she is plotting something.  I would like to think its a change of heart.

Don't forget I am desperately trying to find fosters for these two below to remove from this area on Melville Street:

There have been so many wonderful well-written letters sent to the Mayor's office by so many people in support of what I am doing, and what others are doing like me, and the City's effort to thwart the help that these animals desperately need.  Here is just one of the letter sent yesterday, via email, to Commissioner Jones, the guy seen on the video interview of me, relating to his comments.  We are hoping to get a meeting with him ASAP.

Good Afternoon Mr. Jones,

Last week you were interviewed regarding the decision made by your office to remove cat shelters in the city due to a perceived rat infestation.  I was also interviewed for that same story, as I help and support Janine Wagner in her work to reduce the number of stray and feral cats in the city.  She and I would very much like to meet with you to discuss working together on this issue.  We both feel that the work you do is very much in line with what Janine is trying to do - make the city a better place - and we'd like to work together towards this goal.  I have contacted your secretary and she assured me that she would present you with my request to meet.  I am emailing as I want to ensure that this meeting takes place.  I strongly feel that together we can make substantial headway in tackling a problem  that has gone unaddressed for too long.  I look forward to hearing from you and meeting with you in person.

Its been an exhausting week, physically and mentally.  I am grateful I’ve received public exposure on what I do, and what others do, and the help that is needed to remedy this city of at least one of its ills.  I pray something good comes out of it in the end.  It may take a while to get there, but then again, Rome wasn’t built in a day, right?

Keep fighting the good fight.

Have a great day!

"We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals.  Animals suffer as much as we do.  True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them.  It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it.  Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace."


  1. AMEN!! LOVE that quote! Who wrote that?
    I still think you should contact Alley Cat Allies and see if they can help in any way. At least get some written info from them to present to the city. They have helped in other towns and cities.

  2. It amazes me that people think if you don't feed them they'll just disappear and won't be a 'nuisance' and won't pee and won't defecate.. out of their sight, out of mind I guess. Thank you again for doing what you do.
