I'm happy to report after 6 hours and 1/2 tank of gas later, 5 cats have been rescued and are now in their foster homes. I'm exhausted and came home to 10 voicemails and more than 35 emails that still have to be promptly answered. I've brewed a pot of coffee, put a fire in the fireplace and I'm good to go again.
I met with a young woman at the shelter who had rescued a pregnant Mom cat about 4 months ago. The two remaining kittens are now 12 weeks and she was devastated that she couldn't keep them. At one point, she actually changed her mind about letting me have them. She drove out of the parking lot at the shelter, turned around and came back to find me. She was in tears.
We also rescued this sweet little pair:
I also rescued a 4 week old FLUFFY FLUFFY FLUFFY dilute tortoiseshell kitten. Oh. My. Gosh. It was like something from a cartoon calendar. Seriously...that little fluff-ball made me laugh just to look at her.
The trip today involved delivering cats to 3 foster homes and 2 veterinary offices. Looks like tomorrow is going to be more of the same. But this time, I've asked a volunteer driver for help...Thank goodness for volunteer drivers. Did I ever mention how much I appreciate the volunteer drivers?
Tomorrow is going to be another great rescue day.... :)
