Cats, Bats and Automobiles...

Yes, I do see bats out there!  Along with the others - rats, cats, LOTS of skunks, possums, and raccoons.  Those jerks.  They make such a mess of the cats food and water.  😈

Greeley tested negative and was already spayed, so she was updated with shots at the clinic yesterday, and ear-tipped.  But she did not go back to the streets.  Her guardian angel Kim took her under her wing to let her heal, feed her, give her love and get her ready for adoption.  She has bad teeth, which is what I suspect is whats kept her 5.76 pounds when she was weighed.  Such a skinny thing.  I will do my best to get her into vet for her teeth, and hope it makes the difference for her.  New pictures forthcoming.

I had to let the two boys go this morning, after they spent the night in the traps on my porch.  Both boys.  I pray for them that they live their life without pain, that someday, they find a home.  Its my wish for them all.  💔  Thank you SO much to those that called in to the clinic and made donations online yesterday.  What a difference you made to help in the humongous bill I have there.  I love you all...   Really, I do.

NUGGET! this morning in the window!

I had a few brief encounters with humans out there this am.  Nothing to really note, except at Ferndale Crescent and Webster Avenue, where I feed some sweet strays, there was an odd-looking young couple standing in the driveway of the house next door - where a bunch of young people hang and party.  Its been like that for years.  I took a picture of the front of the house with a peace sign in Christmas lights.  Young and hip.  Anyway, when I rounded the Jeep to go feed, the girl called out and said I've been wanting to tell you that I love you!  Thank you for feeding the cats!  I do the same at my house, I feed the strays.  I touched my chest and said, that means the world to hear someone say that!  Especially at 4 a.m.!  I usually get negativity and people yelling at me.  The guy next to her was also saying something like - yes, thank you for what you are doing.  We love animals.  I really was touched!  Little things like that can go a long way.  

Total opposite of how someone can change your mood.....  the Niagara Street building - where the new owner placed all the shelters to the side of the street and displaced at least 8 cats from their 'homes'.  I had placed a tote on its side in its place to keep the food - that they NEED! - from getting wet from our storms.  I found it by the side of the road this morning.  Hey D-head, why don't you clean up your property of the weeds, glass, litter, mow the foot long grass that's already there, THEN worry about a plastic tote.  You JERK!.  I placed the tote back again.  I have no clue what I will do for the wintertime for these cats, but in the meantime, I will continue to feed.

  1. I am glad to know that there are other animal lovers out there in unexpected places. It does give you hope that not everyone in that part of town has a cold heart. As far as the guy moving your stuff - I know you and I know you will find a way to make this work for the cats. You always do!! You will not be intimidated or stopped. You are a fearless defender of these cats!

  2. What are people doing up and about at 4 am in that neighborhood? LOL! I'm glad they gave you a shout-out of thanks and encouragement. Nice to know there are some good people there who care about cats.
