The cooler weather today certainly brought out my better attitude. I had the moon roof open on the car, the windows open in the house, the birds were chirping, the sky was blue and I feel like my stomach was just a *little bit* flatter than it was yesterday.
I spent the morning picking up adoption money and putting new cats into Petsmart. We only have six days left there and I'm feeling the pinch of the slower adoptions over the past 3 weeks. I'm hopeful that a "Huge Adoption Event" this weekend might be just the ticket. I spent $100+ on advertising the event then realized that we have a holiday weekend this weekend. UGH. Let's hope that other people (other than me, that is) have no life and are home shopping for cats this weekend.
Several of our foster parents have been dealing with a virus from the "high kill shelter". Sadly, they are our nursing Moms and things are very precarious for the little ones that are nursing. I wish this shelter could AT LEAST resolve the issue of sick cats. They keep buying new cleaning crap, but it never seems to help.
In the meantime, cats continue to die there and our adoptions have been too slow to really do much to help them. We had a good adoption weekend, but it wasn't enough to make up for lost time over the past 3 weeks.
Didn't I start this blog post in a GOOD mood? :)
