The temperatures have been brutal this past weekend. I thank God for the shelters I have scattered here and there for these sweet homeless angels. I pray they are using them. The water and wet food I place for them freezes up quickly. I find frozen wet food at a few locations each day when its this cold out. They just can't eat it fast enough before freezing. I try to save some of the hot water I fill the jugs with to retrace my steps and go back to my first stops and replenish the ice with water. Some of them lap up a whole dish of water after I leave, they are so thirsty.
The good news is that we are going to get a break with the temperatures mid week, so that will be a welcome change for these kitties!

MORE GOOD NEWS! WHAT A WEEKEND! Drumroll.... Three adoptions (well... one pending)!!
Last week I got a message from my friend Pattie saying she had someone interested in Dasher, the unneutered boy I rescued from Parsells not too long ago, and who has been in foster care with a wonderful girl named Kim, who also fostered Peppercorn. Dasher was the kitty that had some behavioral issues, but after a visit to the vet with the wise Dr. Grshey, and following her own instincts, a big change happened with Dasher. Enough so that the couple that came to meet him yesterday fell in love! Within two weeks, I will be delivering him to their home, to meet his canine sister too!
Another nice couple, Sue and Bill, expressed interest in Bacardi! So I went and picked up Bacardi from his foster mom, Rachael, who literally cried when I took Bacardi from her arms, but she quickly realized that she will be able to make the difference in another cat’s life very soon but allowing Bacardi to go to a new home. Fosters are rare, even rarer than adopters. I thank God for both! Bacardi was brought to his new home yesterday also! And speaking of yesterday…
|Bacardi now MAX!|
Another wonderful family has adopted Happy! Happy is the little kitten that just a week ago on New Years Eve morning this little baby came running to me crying at 5:30 am. – 20- degrees out. This family adopted little Squirt from me in 2015, and Harold from me I believe in 2014. They renamed Happy to Archie. :)

So as you can see, this has been one great month so far for the cats of Rochester. At least three of them this week. J
