I feel like the world has gone crazy today.
83 cats died at the shelter today simply because there were not enough homes.
I received an email from another rescue organization asking for help with cats after a foster parent died. She had my sympathy until she disclosed that the woman had 20 cats of her own and "the rescue" gave her 8 more to foster. Insanity!
What kind of rescue knowingly gives an elderly woman 8 cats to foster when she already has 20 cats? T.V. shows are made of this kind of stuff.
That isn't rescue. That's hoarding. I don't know what the legal limit is in this woman's area, but it's NOT 28 cats. Poor thing.
Apparently, there's a rally/protest at the shelter where I rescue tomorrow and this woman's rescue is involved. She should clean up her own backyard before poopin' in somebody else's. Just sayin'...
Anyway, it's been a shitty week and isn't ending too much better. Lots going on that isn't making me happy right now. It's ok...it's part of what I bought into when I started the rescue. Why it all happens at once is beyond me.
I'm grateful for every day that I receive reassuring, kind emails. Our volunteers are so awesome and on weeks like this....I'm trying to remember how blessed I really am.
Tonight, I'm remembering the unwanted and with the help of our volunteers, do our best to make a difference.
