I kicked ass this this morning so that I could have a somewhat normal afternoon. I answered emails, telephone and even managed to spend time with my own cats this afternoon! Our 14 year old dog Maggie has a lump on her head so I'm suddenly feeling guilty for being too busy to notice any sooner than this.
I'm pleased to announce that I spent the better part of the morning settling two of our adorable kittens in a GORGEOUS new Pet-Valu store in Mississauga that is going to feature our kittens full time:
I feel like our rescue continues to move forward in the best possible way. We've had some "bitter pills" that don't share our happiness, but we're not letting bad attitudes get in the way of being so happy and excited. It takes too much time and energy to feel angry and petty, so we choose "happy" and screw the rest!
One of these days soon, I'll post more on actual rescuing. Right now, my focus has been on keeping our rescue stable through kitten season and pay our vet bills on time. I've heard stories of (and have seen) other rescues with cats in cages in their garages and bedrooms and we won't do that. I don't want our foster parents living like that. (That isn't rescue - that's insane and probably against the law where you live.) But not doing it takes planning and careful consideration. It's hard - really hard.
I've been leaving the actual rescue part to others in our group for now...and they've been doing a GREAT job. Check out the cuties we just rescued:
