I was comparing spreadsheets on July's adoptions from 2011 to 2012. I had been really alarmed by our pitiful adoptions, but found that we're right on target for July. July is a slow, sad, adoption month. They're killing cats at the "high kill" shelter because there are too many and it's overcrowded.
Because I'm (still) trying to sell our house, I've been hesitant to take any new foster cats to my home. I can barely handle what I already have going on. It's too painful to look at the High Kill Shelter's Website and see all the cats I can't save right now. We're still rescuing from there, but *I* personally, can't take anybody and there are some "Turner Tabby" sweeties that are making me feel as if I'm the one pushing the syringe into their veins:
I guess this is just another one of *those* blog posts. I'm looking forward to the end of summer. Hell, I'm looking forward to moving so that I can foster somebody that needs me. For now? I'm muddling through July and praying for those who never had a chance to know what it's like to be loved.
