This morning it was the Spanish guy walking up to me on Central and Second that helped me remove some boards to get to the dying kitten in the shelter last week. Today he was selling two cans of paint - yes, a pretty green. If I had the money on me, I would have just given it to him, as I told him. I also told the same thing to Homeless Will. He came walking down the street after seeing me, he needed $4 for a burger. We talked as we walked to feed the cats under the post box on the corner. A car came around the corner, a girl screamed out - 'you better not mess with the Cat Woman!' - oh the characters out there.. :) I said to Will all I can do is give you a ride somewhere Will. I told him if I had it I would give it to him. He's a nice guy. He said I was making him cry after I told him that. I gave him a hug. Told him that was all I had for him today. Pretty sad.
On Parsells, there are now four kittens. They are beautiful. One I am able to now pick up. THIS is what happens when you aren't allowed to maintain a colony properly. Without being able to feed and shelter, you can't know whats going on, or where there is a pregnant cat giving birth to kittens. Now they are desperate when I pull up, so much so that they are bold enough to come while I am pouring. What am I do to with them? I suppose I am going to pick up the one that allows me to and put in a carrier and bring him home. He is sort of feral, maybe he is just letting me pick him up because he is desperate. They are gorgeous cats - soft greys, fluffy greys, this friendlier one is buff red. I've posted their picture before, will have to find it.
I will also be thinking and planning the fundraiser, which I am hoping will be a piece of cake. Thanks to Tracy for dropping off the gift baskets yo are donating. Tracy is a great neighbor. She's going to have a little bambino soon, so she wanted to drop off before it comes. Thank you to Jackie for sending me the gift card - and to the others telling me their plans for gift cards and other items to donate for baskets, and the raffle table where hopefully lots of fun and useful items will be stacked.
PS, Ellis goes to her new home tomorrow, Lulu goes to her new home in two weeks, and Sammy will be met by someone tomorrow who hopefully will fall in love with him. Gracie is still without a family, and so is Sebastian and Martie. Greeley has been adopted by her foster mom, but she is not a foster failure! She is still willing to foster! :) I love ya Kim!
Have a great day!
