It feels good to have a moment of success, doesn't it?
Three of our foster parents went to the shelter yesterday. I had to laugh when I heard they were going together. Three foster parents + shelter cats = Rescue insanity! But they did a great job and rescued 4 adorable cats that desperately needed out:
I've had a volunteer manning the phone lines this weekend for me (Thank you, Connie!) and I've spent a lot of time going through the minutiae of our foster list. For every cat there is a statistic and I have to insure they are vaccinated, and older kittens are spayed/neutered at an appropriate time. Making sure nobody falls through the cracks is paramount. I wanted to touch base with some of the foster parents that have been quiet and let them know we appreciate them too. It was nice to have some extra time to do so.
Some of the cats needed new pictures and I was suddenly aware that one of my own foster cats "Max" didn't have a decent picture on the site. "No wonder nobody has called about him!" So I got busy and started taking pictures.
I wasn't happy with the first picture:
I had some luxury of extra time this weekend, but unfortunately the cats at the shelter do not. The protesters did their thing on Saturday. Why on earth would they protest at a city building when it's closed? Last time they did their protest at the shelter when it's closed. I hope they felt like they did something worthwhile. I'm sure it takes a lot of effort to do these rallies. I just wish they'd go to the shelter, take a tour and rescue some damn cats.
Tomorrow, it's back to life as I know it and I couldn't be happier.
