There's so many little tidbits I wanted to share today! Where to start?
The x-rays came back on Stoney and it looks like he's going to need major orthopedic surgery on his foot. I haven't alerted Stoney's foster Mom yet, so I'm sure she'll be surprised when she reads this! Argh!
I rescued a Lynx Point Ragdoll recently that is very very sick. I'm praying it's not Fatty Liver. Sophie is such a sweet girl and is with an awesome foster Mom - if anybody can pull her through, it'll be Julie.
Looks like I'm jumping into my rescue with both feet and treading water! It's ok. Sick cats are part of rescue. So few rescues are truly financially stable, but I had hoped that I could go a few frickin' weeks without some major crisis that didn't strip the ol' bank account. Oh well - it's money well spent.
On a happy note, I met an adopter at the shelter today. She was a lovely person that happily fell in love with "Gill":
"Gil is settling in nicely – I do have him separated from my dogs and cat but he doesn’t seem the least bit unnerved when he hears the barking upstairs or the whining at the door to get in. However, his typing skills are somewhat lacking and although he tries desperately to help I’m afraid I had to set him to guarding the filing cabinet – which he fell asleep in so he isn’t much of a guard either! Thanx for your patience and keep up the good work!"
Looks like things are going to be great for Gill, my stubby tailed boy!
I also rescued "Stanley" the Himalayan today and a very cute little guy named "Jethro":
Speaking of foster homes....Forever Home Cat Rescue officially has THIRTEEN new foster homes! It's very exciting and keeps me in a constant state of renewed enthusiasm. :)
Remember this little guy?
It was a busy, busy day for me and tomorrow doesn't seem that much more quiet. I guess it's just the season. My daughter arrives from California on Thursday for a long weekend - so much to do!
Think good thoughts for Sophie and Stoney, please. They're in good, loving, capable hands. But I still worry :)
