It's exciting when I hear from a foster home that we have another adoption! March 1st. Adoption. *check* We've been getting regular adoption inquiries, and adoptions now. I don't want to say they are "predictable", but.....I feel good about what's going on.
This afternoon, I had an adopter who has had a cat for A MONTH want to return her. We try to do our best to screen adopters, but folks can't seem to understand that this is NOT Sears, and you can't return a cat because she's meowing. I'm pretty good at troubleshooting, but I need to do this when I'm in a charitable mood and not in a "You gotta be kidding?!" mood.
Speaking of "morons".... there are two little girls at the shelter right now that were surrendered together because they are both pregnant:
North Toronto Cat Rescue, (Please note this is NORTH Toronto Cat Rescue) but cannot find a driver to meet me halfway. I've been feeling too crummy to make the full trek. I really want to help these girls - the orange girl is about to give birth any day now. It's sad to think that these girls remain at the shelter at the mercy of being euthanized because of a lack of driver to deliver them where they need to go.
((UPDATE: WE HAVE A DRIVER! I'M PICKING UP THE GIRLS WEDNESDAY!)
I can't do it all. In the early years of rescuing, I used to think I could. But I know better now. I ask for help.
Today is my birthday (yippe.)...no cooking tonight, AND my son has scooped litterboxes and fed the animals for me. Last week they asked me what I wanted for my birthday. I said, "A donation to Forever Home Cat Rescue."
They said, "That's lame. What do you REALLY want?"
Ha. Those young'uns.
