I don't know if some of you have some sort of rescue ESP, but as I drove out to the shelter, I received two phone calls from foster parents who wanted cats! Not only did Charleston get out of the shelter today, but this pretty little girl named "Juliana" also was rescued: One little guy named "Little Barnaby" will be rescued on Saturday. He still needs to complete his 3 days "stray time". Blah.
Charleston is having a fast and furious neuter this afternoon and going to his new home tonight. Many thanks to Kate and Garrett for playing stork for me and delivering him. I'm absolutely exhausted and so grateful for the help tonight.
I received an email from Kim this about a little guy named "Marvin":
One of the animal control officers picked up Marvin after he had been hit by a car. The officer thinks he has a broken hip, but unsure where the break actually is. Marvin is about 6 months old and I had the privilege of meeting Marvin today while at the shelter.
Oh. My. Gosh. Kim was right about Marvin.
When you *look* at Marvin he starts to purr and knead! You can see by his picture that he was kneading when his picture was taken too! Kim doesn't think Marvin has much of a chance of getting out of the shelter, but I felt like we've had some wonderful miracles lately and that maybe Marvin had a chance. Of course, not only does Marvin need a place to go, but he'll probably need surgery too. ($$)
If you can help Marvin with a foster home, forever home, or with medical expenses post-rescue, please let me know.
