I hate it when the phone rings too early. Especially when I see my son's caller ID on the phone. I answered cautiously, poised for another trip to the emergency room. This time he said, "Mom, I'm sending you a picture. Check your email."
Earlier in the spring, I had posted a picture of an animal that I was unsure of what the darn thing was. Apparently, it's a Groundhog or a Woodchuck. You can see his picture here. Apparently, our little friend is baaaaack with a vengeance:
So this little guy must've REALLY busy last night. Remember - this is a house we have that's FOR SALE! I'm afraid to show David. He thought we should've taken steps in the spring to move the Groundhog. But he was so cute and I had already named him "Woody"!
I don't know what we're going to do. I called Animal Services, and apparently, they only kill them - they don't MOVE them and had no advice. Killing Woody isn't an option. I'm actually wondering if we have a "Woodette" and that's damage done by little ones born in the spring. Little bastards!
I was back at the shelter this morning and rescued 8 deserving cats and kittens! I took two of the young adults to a new foster home and brought 6 to Petsmart. (Already had been quarantined) I no sooner had gotten the kittens settled into their cages when an amazing lady showed up and wanted to adopt one of the black kittens that I had just put into the store! Great way to start the month.
We had 3 adult cats adopted this weekend! I certainly wish it could be this way every week. I don't think things have slowed down from the summer kitten season. Sadly, they still seem to be coming into the shelter.
Hang in there .... it's October...it's bound to slow down soon.
