One of the reasons that I like this time of year is that it gives more adults and young adults a chance to get out of the shelter. Normally, a cat like "Melvin" (above) doesn't stand a huge chance. Melvin was pretty cute today. One of the couples arrived to meet a black kitten. Melvin would NOT be ignored. He kept grabbing onto the back of their shirts through the cage bars the moment they turned their backs. He did it to me too! His persistence bought him a ticket out of that place and on to a new life.
Yesterday, I took Travis to his vet appointment to see if his eyes needed to be removed. Unfortunately, the vet took one look at him and said "Yes". He said that he would be in chronic pain with the eyes the way they are. He can't see anyway, and without them he would be free of pain. Who could argue with that?
