Mike's Deadline

For Christmas David and I gave each other "Romantic Weekends"  (Yes, with each other!).  We're leaving tonight for a trip to Quebec City for the Winter Carnival.  I can only hope that I don't see any cats freezing in the cold.  ("Cat Rescue" is not another word for "foreplay", trust me.) 

I received a message from one our foster parents about a little black and white guy that has been hanging out at a construction site.  Her message was as follows:

"Beth, we have a homeless black and white boy cat living in one of our condo sales centres that we are renovating. He is SUPER SWEET. I took pics of him last week. A few of the construction workers began feeding him and letting him stay indoors. But we are scheduled to finish construction there on Feb.15 and turn it over to Sales...Again, he is very sweet, loves people - even melted the hearts of burly construction men! He goes up to anyone and meows for a head rub and possibility of a new home."

She sent the following pathetic pictures of him:



The third one about killed me - watching him eat food from a pile on the floor.  At least he's inside and has some food, right?  This guy's situation is precarious because he's getting the boot on February 15th. 

I'm hoping somebody will step forward and give this guy a foster home.  We'll get him neutered, vaccinated, etc.  I'm just worried that he'll accidently get outside before we can find him the foster home and I'll lose him.  Right now, he doesn't seem a bit interested in going back outside, but he'll be thinking about girls soon enough.

If you can help, please let me know as soon as possible.  I can't save them all, but I think I can make a difference in this guy's life.  I'm calling him "Mike" with hope that it seems construction worker-like - "Mike Holmes"?   

Please help Mike....the clock is ticking for this guy and he'll be just another casualty the streets.

Oh, we hope Mike gets rescued from there in time. It's sad there are so many in need, but you're right, you do what you can.

Dang, he is such a handsome guy. Sure hope he gets a home and doesn't end up on the street or worse...at the "shelter". I'd drive up to Canada and get him but I have two extra here now from the school ferals. They're sick and I can't leave them out in the cold even if they do have warm(er) shelter. Yeah, hubby wasn't thrilled but he's adjusting, if adjusting means by the time these two are ready to go back they won't really be feral anymore-LOL~Donna

Wouldn't it be great if you could reach Mike Holmes via hgtv.ca and send him this post about the kitty named after him?

The fourth picture makes him look so sad and alone! Any takers for Mike?

Oh what a sweetie!
I rescued both my cats this time of year in a severe cold spell. Such a dangerous time of year for the kitties.
Fingers crossed and prayers going out that this boy gets a home.
...wouldn't he be a wonderful Valentine's Day prezzie?
Maybe name him Valentino lol
