Like many people, I really thrive on routine. I wake up, make coffee, feed cats, let the dog outside, etc. So when the hard disk on my computer failed (turns out it wasn't a virus) and I lost ALL my data, I was lost. In fact, I haven't been able to log onto Facebook because ALL of my passwords were set up on a simple little application called RoboForm!
I think the worst part was losing my Address Book. If you've sent me an email over the past 4 days, and you haven't heard back from me - please don't be offended, and resend.
Enough whining from me! I've been a busy rescue girl the past few days and have rescued five happy cats! "Forever Home" is now up to TWENTY foster homes and despite all the computer problems, I'm content and things are moving along as they should.
Yesterday, I met an adopter and a new foster Mom at the shelter. The senior adopter, left with Meriam a senior cat! I couldn't have asked for a better match. Our newest foster Mom left with "Seamus":
This video cracks me up. When the foster Mom picked him up, he just dissolved into her arms. There was NO WAY she would put Seamus back into that cage. He was going home with her!
Today, I rescued a couple of cuties for another new Foster Mom:
I've done a huge amount of driving over the past few days. I think I've been on the road more than I've been at home. A call came in this afternoon from a lovely sounding woman who was interested in a blind cat currently at the shelter, and is willing to adopt a "senior friend" for him! She sounds SO incredibly nice. Fortunately, I was able to corral my friend Kathleen into doing the drive tomorrow. It's a HUGE victory for an unneutered blind cat and a senior cat to get out of the shelter together. I'm kind of sorry that I'm not doing the rescue myself.
I'm proclaiming tomorrow an "Admin Day" and am staying home to reorganize my computer. David's taking the day off tomorrow, so I'm not sure how much work I'll get done. Having him home sort of goobers up my plans to drink coffee and work diligently in my robe until noon.
It's been a great few days of rescue. As I was leaving the shelter this morning lugging heavy cat carriers, I heard a voice come from one of the offices, "Hey Beth! Did you sing your rescue song today??" I had forgotten. "One should NEVER been too busy to sing the rescue song!"
