We rescued the the littermates of the little "maggot kitten" yesterday! Unfortunately, those guys also had similar...um...parasites. But they're now healthy, happy and with a new foster Mom with our rescue who is a veteran with these sort of little guys.
With this horrible heat, some coward left a Mom and 5 kittens in a box at the front door of the local SPCA. The Mom and babies were horribly distressed, dehydrated and malnourished. Nobody was sure how long they had been in a box like that. Fortunately, a few calls were made and our rescue has this little family too! Mom is rail thin, but purr's like a motorboat. Of course, Mom is black and all of her kittens are black too - LOL Bless their little hearts. :)
David was supposed to be at a North American Bridge Championship (aka: "Geek Fest 2011) all week. Turns out his team didn't do well on the first day and now he's home all week! Usually, I love it when he's home, but I'm SO busy and am finding that he's really cramping my style with rescue, etc. My schedule is all goofed up - in fact, I slept until 9:30 this morning!!!! That's ridiculous! I guess I'm used to waking up with him while he's getting ready for work.
I need to get to the shelter today, but am having trouble coordinating between time with "vacation husband". Heck....I was supposed to kick some a$$ this week while he was away! I have some cats to rescue and it's driving me crazy to think I can't get to them as quickly as I would like.
We're getting ready to start an "Adoption Madness" month in August. This will be news to our foster homes, because I haven't sent out the notice yet. But I'm hoping it'll get some of our little sweeties adopted that have been lingering in the program for a while.
Lots of good stuff on the horizon. Just need to get my man back to work to keep me from
