Being a primarily "internet" related rescue, I really am panicked when the internet goes down. This morning I received a notice on the browser directly from the provider that indicated we had some kind of "worm" that was sending out packets of email from one of my computers. So they shut me down.
No email. No website. NO FACEBOOK for about 30 minutes today. I thought I would faint. :) I've got my virus software scanning the begeezus out of my computer with hope that we can find out what's going on. If it continues, they'll shut me down again. *ACK*!
We had lots of nice adoptions over the weekend - including adults! Oh how I LOVE adult cat adoptions. I woke up Saturday morning to 5 different requests to move cats into different foster homes and one adult cat return. Things will get ugly very quickly if I can't log into my computer. I figured I might as well write in my blog while the virus software does it's thing.
We had one foster Mom go out to the "high kill" shelter this weekend and rescued an adorable little family that obviously needed help:
Looks like the "high kill shelter" is now part of HelpingLostPets.com and are at least trying to do a better job reuniting the pets with their owners. The shelter is only required to keep the stray cats 3 days, so pet owners better check out that website fast before the city kills them due to overcrowding.
I think the shelter made a huge mistake and has stopped naming the cats on their Petfinder website. Poor cats just have numbers now. Anonymous, unwanted and numbered. I'm appalled. At least they could have a fucking name before they're killed. Maybe it's easier to kill them if it's just a number. People LIKE to see the names! I'm betting the number rescued has gone down too.
Lots to do today and thankfully it's all inside. It's going to be HOT this week and I'm truly grateful to have an inside sort of job. :)
Come on virus software - do your thing!!!!
