YES! DESPITE THIS ELECTION, THERE IS GOOD NEWS TODAY - BABY IS SAFE!! ITS NOT ALL DOOM AND GLOOM AND UNCERTAINTY IN THIS COUNTRY OF OURS! :)
Baby is safe! Thanks to Julie and Lyssa, they asked Diane if she could take Baby in for a couple of weeks until Lyssa returns from vacation. Lyssa, the cat whisperer, will then do her magic with Baby, another girl! The three of you are fantastic! I can't wait for an update about this little one. Her baby paws so dirty. I pray Baby comes around and is adoptable soon, like her sibs. I pray her mom is ok after having all her babies taken from her. :( PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER!
As for Baby's siblings, Joanie, Sydney, Riley and Squirt, all or most may have homes soon! I received a call from a woman who has a friend that is interested in adopting Squirt and Riley. So, Friday, I will deliver the girls to a home in Honeoye Falls. Fingers crossed this all works out. Yesterday, I received a note from a woman who is interested in adopting either Joanie, or Sydney, but not both. We will talk today. On Sunday, I will be picking up Peppercorn from Caledonia from his wonderful foster mom, and will then deliver him to his hopefully new home out in Conesus, to a nice girl who is very interested in him. He was a bit shy when she came to meet him last Sunday, but its a natural thing - these cats are scared. They need to be in an environment for a period of time before they become trusting of a person. All new adopters should be aware of this prior to meeting.
This morning, all kitties came running. I doled out a lot of food. I had to release Gabriele, a boy, back to his spot on Garson. He was just a young thing too. There are others there that I must trap. I figure I have five more weeks to trap. If we are lucky, no snow will fly until mid December! If I trap two for the next five weeks, that's a total of $600. That's a lot of money and not a lot of cats! I sure could use help - Sponsor a Spay! Today! Please call the clinic and make a donation toward my account - you could make it in memory of a loved one, or in honor of a kitty that has been trapped, spayed or neutered, and returned to the street.
I will do my best to watch over these homeless animals in our city for as long as I am able.
Thanks for your support.
Have a great day!
