It's been a LONG time since I've written in this blog. I don't think I've ever gone this long without writing. Certainly I would usually do a "year end" wrap up and a 'Happy New Year' thing. I'm not really sure what's changed for me.
I've been writing in this blog diligently since 2008. It was intended to be a blog about my life in cat rescue. It was never supposed to be an ongoing rant about the shitty shelter I was rescuing from, but I was looking at the videos posted and the comments I made (and were made about me) and realized that even *I* was getting bored with the despair and lack of control that I had about the shelter.
When I started a more positive rescuing experience for myself and the rescue, I didn't realize what a shit storm of ugliness from (of course) anonymous posters who thought I had abandoned the high kill shelter. But that really wasn't so. One staff member from the shelter told me to STOP RESCUING from the shelter if I was going to bitch about the illness in my blog. :)
When my rescues became more positive and encouraging, they also became boring for the reader and myself - the writer! "Yes, I rescued 5 cats from the low-kill shelter, they're healthy, cute and friendly."
So I thought that perhaps it was time to discontinue the blog.
I stepped on a huge pile of cat barf this morning in my bare feet on the way to the washroom. It was during that not-so-delightful-half-asleep moment that I realized perhaps I have more to offer this blog. It might end up being more of the same, but I'm hoping it'll continue to give those few some insight to what we do and encourage those who are in the same boat.
It's been 5 years. More to come....
