The long weekend was filled with guilt-free cat related activities. With David being out of town, I was free to transport cats, play with kittens at Petsmart at all odd hours of the weekend! I even did my first Petsmart adoption on Sunday!
I need to get over the intense feelings of guilt I get every time I leave a cat at Petsmart for adoption. I left two of THE CUTEST kittens there today and the little girl looked back at me as if to say, "I just want a home! Don't leave me here."
The feelings I have of failure are pure nonsense, as each one of these cats was rescued from a steel, deathrow cage. These cats have toys, and are out of their cages 2 times per day. (Not to mention that they actually have a chance of being adopted!)
We lost two kittens over the weekend in separate situations. One was a simple accident and the other for unknown causes. Kitten season is rough and it leaves me feeling so beaten up.
At the risk of jinxing things, I was at the shelter today and the only cats that were euthanized were sick cats. Things have been slower there and it's almost June! Is it possible that this city of a zillion unwanted cats is finally getting the message??
At least I didn't feel guilty leaving with only 2 kittens today....they were the only single litters (without a Mom) that was there today! Do I hear an "AMEN!"?
