One of our foster Moms went to the shelter over the weekend and had some tough choices but took home "Angelo". (I laughed out loud when I heard that she's thinking about renaming him "Big Tony"! LOVED IT!)
They came home talking about another very handsome guy named "Swiggles", so I went back to the shelter today and rescued him:
I also rescued "Leonard":
How CUTE is this guy?????? I'm in love. :)
As I type this blog post, I had some very sad news about the death of one of my cat adoptions direct from the shelter. "Dexter" was very loved and we still don't really know what happened. It sounds like it was complications from a simple Upper Respiratory Infection. My heart hurt for his new Mommy. She fought hard for him, and I'm so grateful to her.
Hearing about this death makes me realize how fragile everything is as I rescue so often. I'm frightened and pray for the cats in my care and foster parents who love them.
We had 3 adoptions over the weekend, which I found SO exciting for my little rescue. In fact, one of them was a 20+ pound girl named Misty! I thought we might have her for a while. You never know who somebody will fall in love with, eh?
Ahhh...so much to say, and so much more than anybody wants to read! Happy Monday, all....
