It was a good day to be swamped with phone calls - dark and rainy. We had adoption calls, post-adoption calls, surrender calls - you name it - we got it today. It was hard to trudge out in the rain today to take my latest little rescued girl "Peachy" to her new foster home:
On the way back I received an urgent call from a foster Mom. She had come home at lunch to discover one of her kittens was "flat" and sick. The poor guy had a horrible reaction from a vaccination and had been on IV - the vet thought he was better and let him go home yesterday. The kitten thought otherwise and became seriously ill again.
I was nearby the foster Mom's house so I picked up the little guy who was wrapped in a lime green fuzzy blankie and drove to the vets. Seriously...there aren't many things cuter than a black kitten in a lime green fuzzy blankie. I glanced down at him in my arms and he looked so pitiful and sweet. It's been a long time since I made a "scary drive" with a sick kitten in my arms. I was all prepared for my explanation to the police officer that would end up pulling me over for speeding. :)
Under the title, "The Reason Why I Do This", here's a BEFORE picture of "Snow White" at the shelter:
There's no place like home....there's no place like home...there's no place like home.
