Feed a Cat for Christmas! TOM and SUSAN!

Today's shout out goes to Tom and Susan D. in Texas!  I published their story several months ago when they wrote me their 'tail' of rescue from Rochester to Texas - they brought all their ferals with them!  They just couldn't leave them when they moved across the country!  Awesome people.  Thank you so much for your donation - to help feed over 100 cats for a day!  Two days actually!

This morning was also TNR Tuesday, and as luck would have it, the Catmobile broke down.  It wouldn't start at all.  I had to mad scramble to place two traps, one carrier, 4 2-gallon sized bags of dry food, three large water bottles, six large yogurt containers full of wet food, plus a bag with at least 15 cans of extra wet food, plus blankets and towels, all in my dinky car.  I am beside myself.  Have no idea what is going on with Jeep.  Obviously something.  Have to wait for shop to open, and then call AAA to be towed.  What a mess.  Its always something, isn't it?

ZIPPY from Central and Second
I set traps both on Melville and Parsells, and as more bad luck would have it, NADA.  I moved them - set one up further on Parsells, and then one on Central and Second, where all those grown kittens are - the mailbox cats, and voila! Got this little bugger, I call Zippy, because he and his sibs are so fast running across this street.  So sad. They are so cute.  I have to let him go though.  He/she is an older kitten, for sure.  I can't save them all.  My goal is to rescue Seven from Seventh Street, or Mr. Fluffypants #2 from Baldwin, tomorrow.  I have two fosters waiting in the wings for someone.  There were some 'characters' out and about this morning, so its always iffy to leave these traps and drive off.  I kept a close eye on this one though, making sure these 'characters' didn't go over to check things out.  They were just interested, I think, in buying some smokes, booze, whatever, from the bootleggers house on Second.

That's it for today.  Dixie/Baby is doing WONDERS at my friend's house, the Cat Whisperer.  Just amazing.  She will be adopted out in no time!.

Here is one pic of either Squirt or Riley - with their new big brother!  :)



Here is what Piper and Sydney's new mom has to say about one of them:

"Janine,

    I demand a refund from these kittens! Syd is a THIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!! I noticed my change jar getting lower, just thought it was me 'losing it.' Here's proof that Syd is a thief! That jar was full of change! Where did she learn this???? :)"

SYDNEY

"The reason I dedicate myself to helping animals so much... is because there are already so many people dedicated to hurting them."

  2. UGh, what a horrible start to your day, Janine. But that Sydney stealing from the coin jar, omgosh! She's going to be a handful, that one. Next she'll be opening doors and flushing the toilet for fun! And I love seeing your rescues with their new (human) brothers and sisters.
