Friday Wrap Up

I decided I'd better write in my blog now, because tonight I'll no doubt be too tired.  It's true, the majority of my energy is spent from early morning until around 3 pm, where I clunk out until about 4 and then I'm renewed.  I have to drive out in Friday traffic this afternoon to pick up 7 kittens at the vets and check them into Petsmart.  God, I hate traffic.  I thought I left that when I left Southern California.  Silly moi. 

I'm happy to report that "Romeo" the urgent sick tabby at the shelter has been rescued!  I had a lovely sounding adopter for him, but another rescue snatched him up after seeing my blog.  I don't care in the least bit - I'm just glad he's out of there and there is (unfortunately) never a shortage of cats. 

We have a foster Mom going to the shelter tomorrow to rescue a Mom and kittens.  I love hearing that and pray they all stay healthy.  Sick, dying newborns is a struggle for any foster Mom to contend with...

Our adoption line is ringing this Friday afternoon.  I love hearing that phone ring!  While the phone is ringing and I'm busy working,  I have a friendly helper with my new foster kitten:

I was asked to give some awesome information about the shelter from where I rescue.  The only problem is I've NEVER mentioned the name of the shelter in my blog, so I won't do it now.  On October 1st, they're offering a LIFETIME cat registration and microchip clinic for $12.50!  I wish I lived in that area - I'd take advantage of it.  I think it's a big step in the right direction for this high volume shelter.  Baby steps - nothing is fixed overnight. 

Our big Comedy Fundraising Event is in one week from tonight...I'm starting to get excited!  I love stand up comedy and am hoping that we'll sell out! 

I'm finally caught up from Monday.  After an afternoon of sending several humiliating emails, "Which cats do you have now?" I think we're in good shape.  Our bank account is balanced, my desk is clean and phone calls have been returned.

The weekend is shaping up....now on to the adoptions...

I'm so glad that kitty got rescued - I was really worried about him. I try not to think about every cat I see that is in a kill shelter, but some just get my attention and he was one of them.

Great for the shelter to be offering a microchipping clinic. I feel it should be mandated for all cities.

So happy to hear about the rescue today!

Beth, K and I have EVERY intention of booking tickets in advance, but this week has been crazy and we're in NYC for the weekend. Can we book Tuesday or Wednesday?

Lory: Yes! You guys can buy online any time before the show. You can also buy tickets on the day of the event.

See you Friday!

Ooohhh that little kitten is totally your type. He has that look in his eye like he's got you under his thumb (paw) :)
