I had hoped that this morning's snowstorm would allow me some much needed administrative time for the rescue. But it turned out that many people stayed home from work today and on the internet.
Seriously, I don't think the rescue's phone line stopped ringing all day! The adoptions have been amazing and it's been very exciting around here.
On a sad note, I heard that a woman brought a VERY pregnant cat to the SPCA (The SPCA and Animal Control share a building...I rescue from Animal Control). Not only was her cat very pregnant, but she also had a litter of nursing kittens with her.
Read Carefully: The SOCIETY FOR PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS took the kittens away from the very pregnant Mom, and sent the woman to Animal Control with the pregnant Mom where she will be killed if not rescued. She's an "owner surrender", so the shelter is under no obligation to keep the Mom for 3 days.
I'm having a hard time concentrating on this blog post. The phone has not stopped ringing and continues to interrupt my concentration. This might be an Advil night :)
Happy Friday :)
