Fortunately, I'm back at the shelter tomorrow to rescue what I thought would be 7 little tabbies:
The SPCA came in and took 3 of the kittens and left the remaining 4 to either be rescued or die. Looks like it's going to be "rescue" for these guys. I wish it could be that way for all of them.
My latest project cat is "Magoo":Magoo was found by the police department after a call was placed about a deceased man in an apartment. Magoo was found perched on his dead owner's chest - holding vigil - for at least THREE days. Magoo has been held-in-trust at the shelter for 10 days in the event a family member wants to claim him. Surprise. Surprise. Nobody has stepped forward. Magoo has lost everything in his life. He's not a young cat - probably 10-12 years old, but Oh. My. Gosh - he's SWEET.
Not too much to report on tonight. I've been enjoying little Howard enormously:
I'm hoping for some happy stories at the shelter tomorrow. I don't want to come home and post anything that's going to hurt. I'm really going to dig for some good stuff and look for something positive.
It's just too damn early to feel so overwhelmed.
