It doesn't happen very often, but we rescued a cat over the weekend that actually had a home. The family came to the shelter to find their cat today and we had already rescued him. Apparently, he got out through a broken screen - 5 month old buff and white guy. He was fortunate he was rescued and not euthanized. I can't figure out why people take so frickin' long to come around to asking the shelter if they have their cat!
We were under no legal obligation to give them back their cat. The "stray time" was up, but we certainly don't want to rescue a cat that doesn't need to be rescued! I asked the owner their intention on neutering and she said that they had an appointment set up on August 12th at "such-n-such" veterinary office. I politely put her on hold and called the clinic. Yes, there was a vet appointment for his neuter. With great confidence that he's in a good home, we're happily giving her "Pokey" back. Yay.
Back at the shelter today and rescued a little blind kitten named "Mya":
I've been busy, busy, busy. We have 4 new foster homes and I feel like the administration stuff for the rescue is starting to stack up. Who wants to do paperwork when rescuing cats is far more fun? Is it really August 2nd? My stress level seems too low for it to be August. Usually, by this time I'm in a frenzy.
Did I really say that my "stress level is too low"? Crap....I bet I just jinxed it.
