I really like going to the shelter knowing that I'm leaving with adult cats. This time of year is incredibly sad for the adults at the shelter. They have little chance of getting out alive:
I was sad to hear that somebody is out circulating a petition against the shelter where I rescue. What's sad, is that it's a petition against euthanasia at that shelter. I know that the person means well. They love animals. But asking a city pound to stop euthanasia is like asking a hospital to end cancer. NOBODY likes to kill the animals. I will not sign the petition. It's ridiculous. The sad part is that the person who started the petition doesn't even live in the city and has NEVER been to the shelter! How much credibility will this person have with the city? *UGH*
On a happy note, my son took a really cute picture of my latest foster Gabby. This little sweetie sits on my shoulder ALL the time while I'm at the computer:
By the way, I met the new neighbours! The Squirrel-Killing-Animal-Hating Neighbours still live in the house, but the real estate agent was there today and she's the one buying the house! They have TWO cats and TWO adorable little girls - ages 11 and 8! I'm so happy! I'm going to get those little girls to start begging their Mom to foster. All it takes is one VERY cute kitten who needs help and *WHAMOO* - they're in!
For the first time in a week, it felt like a normal day and I'm so relieved. The Rescue Rollercoaster is coming into the station.... :)
