With the first day of summer comes the bad news of "too many cats" in the shelter. Sadly, despite my best efforts yesterday and today, more cats came into the shelter in 90 *minutes* than I took out in two days.
Take a moment and read that last sentence again and let it sink in.
I rescued 8 more little lives today and I need to remember that I made a difference to them. Here are a few of the faces that I managed to take off the shelter website that are now safe:
Without further ado, my "fostering speech" quickly turned into my "Guess how many kittens died at the shelter this morning." speech. Stupid. Ignorant people. At least their cat is spayed now. I hope they don't call me about fostering. Or maybe I should suck it up and take them to the shelter to see what happens to the kittens that they "made".
We also rescued an adorable 4 week old dilute calico kitten today. She was brought into the shelter after somebody saw a woman "dump her in the street." Nice.
As I was leaving the shelter, I glanced back at all the little faces that had just arrived and wondered if they would survive.
The summer is here. Yippee.
