(WARNING: LOTS OF CUTE PICTURES AHEAD! BE SURE TO CLICK ON THEM TO SEE UP CLOSE!)
Man oh man, I have been doing this for a long time. Going out at 4 am. in all sorts of weather. You name it, I've been in it. This morning was a little bit different. Scary. The air was electric. Lightning everywhere. Thunder booming in the distance. I had the headlamp around my neck. I was walking in open fields. I was hovering under trees. I was in the pouring rain, which I've done countless times, but now I was subjecting my self to electrocution! And it happens! I just prayed each and every step I took from the time I got out of the jeep until I got back in. Soaking of course. But I made it home, wet not crispy!
This weekend I went to see Gracie, the pregnant female that was too far along to spay, the one I rescued on Garson three Saturdays ago. She has since had her babies, all six. Three sets of twins! Gracie is a very very sweet cat, and a great mom. Very protective. Here are pictures from my visit with them. Their names will be forthcoming as they get a bit older.

I also picked up Ernie Robbie and Chip from my sisters. They needed to be a bit more socialized, and now they are at Melissa’s for a bit so that she can do her magic. I also brought Ike home, the only one left of the Ben, Jerry, Mike and Ike clan. He will hopefully go to a new home soon also!
Itsy and Bitsy were brought back to me as a trade. They are doing much better, sort of. Itsy got into the house from the porch this morning and was just found. I panic thinking that one of them would get out of the house. PANIC. But thankfully she was hiding under a bed. They will take a while to get used to their new surroundings. Sweethearts though, yes, they are.

Guess who got adopted this weekend? DESTINY! I cried when I had to say goodbye to her. I whispered thank you to her, for being such a great mom to five kittens who weren’t even her own. Her adoptive mom had been looking for a tortie and she said she googled Tortie, Rochester, and my name came up! Unbelievable. The power of the internet. Destiny joins a sister – prayers they get along! Can’t wait to see how her first night went. I know she will have noticed her babies missing. I am sure her babies missed her too. :( She has a great new mom Anne though, that will love her to pieces!
Guess who else is being adopted... TIGGY and BROWNIE! They are going together! Woo hoo! And I LOVE their new mom! She came over Saturday to meet them and fell in love. This weekend they will be delivered to their new home! J
Moxy's eye is all better, and Moxy will hopefully join Marbles soon.
I leave you with a really cute pic, Baylee and Taco. They look so alike, but no relation, I swear! :)
