Going to the shelter the day before the cats are euthanized (for lack of a better word) sucks. The shelter didn't seem too crowded, but there were a bunch of tiny, tiny kittens - most of them 4 weeks old and should still be with their Mommy. They look so pathetic covered in cat food as they probably dove into the bowl this morning. Otherwise, they're all healthy - just pitiful looking.
One little Mom cat really tugged at my heart today:
Because we're going into an adoption centre Petsmart for the month of September, many of the foster homes have loaded themselves with a few "extras" to put there. We couldn't resist taking this handsome devil:
We also rescued "Chrissy" and placed her in a lovely foster home today:
Several rescues came in over the weekend and took cats. I'm hoping that between them and me maybe the shelter can cancel the "vet day" tomorrow. One can only hope.
While I was at the shelter on Saturday, somebody dumped off an 8 year old and 12 year old cat - no reason given - just old. The lady had her tween daughter with her. I hope that girl dumps her mother when she's "just old". Not a very kind thing to say, but it sure feels great to type it here.
Not sure why this post sounds so negative. We rescued 6 little lives today. That's something to rejoice about, right?
