|4 am. this morning on Parsells|
Speaking of cats, I had to let Punky back out at this exact location this morning. There is a new mother cat here that I’ve been feeding. I see her cross the street sometimes, so I believe her kittens are around somewhere. Punky is a girl. The other cat, Celeste, the calico, as we all know is a girl, but she was also pregnant. Barefoot and pregnant. Poor thing. I am so thankful she went into the trap. I had to let her back out on the street this morning. Yes, she could have been adoptable, but I think it would take a lot of work given the length of time she’s been on the streets, and I am not quite ready to rescue one right now. Soon, but not today. But can you imagine? ANOTHER little of kittens being born on the street that is now prevented. I am just so grateful, even though abortion is another tragedy. But it’s necessary when it involves the overpopulation of cats. And we have an epidemic on our hands. If you could see what I see, it’s just so sad to see all these cats out there. Please help by spaying and neutering, and spreading the word. Do you need to know how to trap? Do you need to borrow a trap? Let me know. One person CAN make a difference.
From the comments yesterday, I want to thank Jean and Amy. Jean is Kristin’s second cousin and Amy is Kristin’s husband’s sister. They are a family of very generous and compassionate people, all of them. Even Kristin’s Mom and Dad volunteered their time at the fundraiser, and for the past three years!
Thank you also to the others that called the clinic to make a contribution to help cover the cost of the two spays yesterday. It means a great day to me. The cost of cat food is so expensive when you have to buy the quantity I need to feed close to 100 cats a day. It’s now over $150 (before tax) to cover MAYBE four days’ worth of wet and dry food for the homeless critters. I need all the help I can get.

Have a good day everyone.
