Desperation X 2

Whenever I go to the shelter before a "Vet day", I feel a little more desperate than I would any other day.  If I meet with a foster parent who feels the same desperation to rescue the day before they're euthanized, we end up with a minor..um...situation:  10 newly rescued cats.

Six of them are riiiiight here:



Hearing us coo'ing and ooo'ing over this little family cracks me up. It must've been "estrogen central" in that room. Who can resist? Well - we couldn't.  It felt good to rescue this little family. It's going to be a lot of work, but the foster Mom knows and accepted the risks. Sometimes "accepting the risks" are easier said than done.

I also rescued an ADORABLE little Persian for North Toronto Cat Rescue, and two more older kittens for my own rescue.  Both of the older kittens were "melt in your arms" kind of guys.  We couldn't choose, so Sabrina took both of them.  Her partner must hate me;  Mom and 5 kittens, a 9 month old kitten, and a 5 month old kitten.  "Merry Christmas!" 

I offered to loan her the French Maid outfit, but she declined.  :)

What a fantastic rescue day! The babies are adorable, but the mom is gorgeous, truly gorgeous. Hurrah for them all, as well as the other three rescued!

The only thing more fun and adorable than a kitten is a whole litter of kittens!

Good thing hubby didn't see this video. It's hard enough to keep him from keeping every litter we foster but then he sees things like this and I feel horrible telling him no...I myself would keep them all if it weren't for the fact that I'm the only litter scooper, feeder, cleaner upper around here.

I'm always amazed and happy at how much the various cat rescue organizations work together. If folks only realised what goes on behind the scenes.

Why is it that there are only 14 cats listed at the shelter. Are there really so few or is no one bothering to post them?

Anonymous: There are lots and lots of cats at the shelter right now, unfortunately. Kim (who takes the pictures and puts them on Petfinder) is on her honeymoon this week. Usually, when she's gone I take over and take pictures, but I just don't have the time to do both right now :(

If it is the shelter I am thinking it is I've been there once - what a sad place. i was helping out another rescue and going with one of their volunteers.
