Just Another Thursday Rescue Day!

The shelter rescue today was a pleasant surprise!  Five little souls rescued and four were adult cats.  Unfortunately, I don't have all the pictures, but here's a few that'll warm your heart...

The only kitten rescued was "Elvis":
He hissed at me right after I snapped this picture :)  (Little booger!)
I also rescued "Willow"....she's not really an adult, but a gorgeous teenager:
We had a surprise at the shelter when I met a foster Mom and Foster Dad to rescue a couple of declawed cats.  The foster Dad was smitten with a young grey tabby, but she wasn't declawed so we kept moving through the cage area.  He says, "You know...I think she's declawed..."  His wife and I both gave him a "Pshaaawww" and kept walking.  But damned if she wasn't really declawed!  One year old and so sweet. 

Sorry Ed....we'll listen to you next time!

I've been finding myself wound pretty tight lately.  I have a feeling it's because my "rock" has been away for a week now at his geeky Bridge Championship.  He's always a calming influence on me when I have a tendency to be overexciteable and dramatic.

It's been another long day of cat-related stuff and I'm exhausted.  I have a foster parent coming at 9:30 tonight to pick up little "Elvis", then I can hit the hay.  Alone.  *sigh*

Elvis looks like trouble LOL. He will be fun for his foster parents :)

And Willow is beautiful and it looks like she knows it :)

Such lucky kitties!

as you told me to do when I had the house to myself..."Get naked, run with scissors and jump on the beds!" I also add "Sleep in the middle of the bed like a starfish!"

I love it when kittens hiss! I still smile when I think of a tiny 8-week old kitten I adopted who doubled her size with her hair on end and made barely audible hisses at our big klunky dog when she first saw it. So ferocious!
