Holy Guacamole! (Does anybody say that anymore?) It's been an awesome couple days for rescues and adoptions. I've spent the better part of yesterday helping coordinate the rescue of 5 cats for a local Humane Society. Thanks to a wonderful volunteer driver and the humane society, we were able to rescue all 5 of these cats.
I think I surprise people when they find out that I'm helping other rescues. Why wouldn't I? It's not about me - it's about the cats. I won't take time away from my own rescue, but if I'm at the shelter and I'm available, why wouldn't I help? I think rescues get mucked up in politics and forget about the cats sometimes.
Today, a new foster Mom (Karen) went to the shelter to rescue a pregnant Mom cat:
Number 4 kitten was born safely at Karen's house, and I think Karen is already in love with the little family.
Our adoptions are going really well (hope I didn't jinx it), and was awestruck when I found the following "Before" picture of "Sawyer" in my pictures folder:
Sawyer is going to his Forever Home tonight. The couple sound fabulous! They're talking about adopting a 2nd cat, and I'm hoping that they're happy with the adoption process and will come back to me when they're ready for cat #2.
I think I'll go to bed tonight and feel like I've really accomplished something today. I hope the people that helped me feel the same way.
