However, rescue can't stop completely because I'm sick. I decided to post on Craigslist with some pictures of the shelter's most urgent. I wasn't asking for foster homes, but was hopeful to get qualified adopters from the ad.
I've received an email from a VERY nice sounding man interested in "Charleston":
It's hard to get people to fully understand that this is a city pound and there are NO public adoptions. Cats come in - but they don't come out unless they are claimed by their owner or rescued. The local SPCA takes a few, but they're in some kind of political drama over there and have stopped rescuing cats. Charleston has been there a long time and I really want him to find a nice home. He's such a lovey-dovey boy. :)
I found a fabulous statement on somebody else's blog from poet & musician Gil Scott-Heron, "Nobody can do everything, but everybody can do something..."
That's my mantra for the day. I'm going to repeat that every morning when I wake up. Maybe I can make a difference - even when I'm sick.
