I had to let Spooky back out this morning, and of course as you know, I hated doing it. He would be a real handful to someone if they wanted to rescue him - he was born outdoors and knows nothing about humans or houses. He was quiet overnight on the porch, in the trap, covered with blankets to keep the chill out. He ate a little bit, and cried this morning as I was doing the first half of my route, knowing he was going to be released soon. And yes, Spooky is a boy, according to the paperwork I received after his neuter. He has many siblings, a few of which I've spayed/neuter, but there are more on that corner that must be done. Would love some help.
I had an idea this morning as I walked back to the lot on Short to feed Baby Buttons, Mr. Whiskers, Miss Calico, Millie, and a new black, very hungry cat with a tattered, tight red collar. My idea is that I would love to have a landscape company volunteer to help prepare space on this lot, and plant a seed garden. Wild flowers, anything you can plant with seeds. Of course I will have to ask for a permit for this lot, but wouldn't that be lovely. Its actually a double lot and goes far back. This is where the city destroyed my shelters due to 'the rats'. Its actually a home for the animals that have no home, and its a very bleak looking lot. Wouldn't it be nice to spruce it up and make it look pretty. And I am sure the few people that live across from this might like it too! So that is my mission. To find some professional help - someone with a large rototiller, or whatever, to prepare the ground for planting! Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
Have a great day!
Let’s Take a Moment to Be Thankful
For every accident that never happened,
For every grave illness that was not caught,
For every tornado that never formed,
And every mean word withheld when we fought.
We can only see what’s right in front of us,
And can be thankful for all we’ve got,
But to really, truly embrace gratitude,
We have to also remember
To be thankful
For every “never,” “didn’t,” and “not.”
