I've had two rescue days in a row! I'm not sure how I'm managing the house showings AND the trips to the shelter, but so far despite the hectic schedule, I'm hanging in there. Truthfully, I have to give credit to our volunteers who are picking up the slack. We have one volunteer that I can call and say, "PLEASE call these three people back...." so there's no delay in people getting returned phone calls.
Yesterday, I rescued a very cute little girl named "Tilt" who has a permanent head tilt. She's been to the vet and has a healed massive ear infection. Poor girl must've been in quite a bit of pain at some point. The shelter took beautiful care of her for almost a month. The (other) shelter would've just killed her rather than spending the money:
Apparently, a woman came in to the shelter to surrender them. When the shelter said there was a waiting list for owner surrenders, she said she was just going to dump them outside. Of course, the shelter took them. They are insanely SWEET!!!!!! (Can you tell I'm completely smitten with them?) They're only 2 years old. :)
It's been a long week and feels like a Friday today. Our house hasn't sold yet, but there have been showings almost every day. I'm exhausted from keeping my house perfect all the time. Admittedly, I'm enjoying walking in and seeing everything organized and put away - but it's so sterile and that isn't me.
Yesterday, I visited Tattoo. Holy God, I've never seen such a tiny kitten that's 4 weeks old. This little guy is SMALLER THAN A HAMSTER! The pictures do NOT show how tiny he is. PLUS...he's galloping around his foster Mom's house. He's totally a more advanced kitten 4-5 weeks old and is having a ball. He follows his foster Mom around mewing after her and leaping at her leg. Imagine a kitten the size of a hamster doing that. Incredible! Thank heavens I'm not fostering this guy - he'd never leave.
