A Full Shelter and an Urgent Plea

If I didn't know better, I'd say it was Summer.  The shelter is full.  TOO full for a winter month.  I always forget that December is a big month for dumping cats.  People are traveling and want to abandoned the cats at the shelter before they go.  It's the same way in June.  Also the people who have been feeding and playing with kittens that were born outside in the summer are now bringing in 6 and 7 month old kittens because it's getting cold. 

Tomorrow is a euthanasia day at the shelter and it's REALLY grim over there.  The shelter is very very full.

I was at the shelter today with my friend Julie to rescue "Sophie":
Poor Sophie had such a bad shelter cold - no doubt they would euthanize her tomorrow morning.  With some TLC and antibiotics, she'll be fine.  Thank you Julie for saving her....and thank you *everybody* for donation so I could afford to rescue a sick girl!

While I was at the shelter I fell in love.  (Yes, AGAIN!)  But wait until you see the following two videos.  You'll be in love too:

Of course, I had to get her out of the cage and kiss her! (P.S. She LOVES other cats and was grooming another cat she just met!)

Please consider this an urgent plea.  I *think* her name is "Keeba" on the shelter website.  She's a Dilute Tortie about 1-2 years old. 

Please help her.  I don't know if she'll make it through the vet day tomorrow.

++++ vibes that she gets rescued. I so wish my female would tolerate other cats at least a little bit. She still attacks my male after a year together. I bet my male would just LOVE that little grey torti

Beth- if we can get Nikki adopted we'll foster for you! We've had her for over a year and nobody wants a spayed black cat that's good with other cats, dogs, and kids. Karin

Although my roommate Binga was just 8 weeks when she was rescued from the Lacy St. ACC in Los Angeles, her behavior was almost a carbon copy of this kitty's! She looks like an awesome cat.

I have shared about her on my Facebook page. Paws crossed!!
