Here's to Hope

Tonight I'm thinking about an urgent plea that went out for a fluffy 8 month orange cat at the "high kill" shelter.

He's marked for euthanasia tomorrow at noon.  

Despite an  enormous number of recent adoptions, I have no space for this young orange guy.  I've checked around, made calls, send emails - without luck.

This poor guy has some (hopefully) minor medical issues.  The vet tech at the shelter said he was probably running a fever and had been  vomiting for 4 days.  It's not the money that's keeping me from rescuing him.

Where will I put him?

I already have two adult cats boarding at a veterinary clinic because I have no room.  I have NEVER had to board cats because of lack of space.  I'm a PLANNER.  But I was lied to and "2 eight week old kittens" turned out to be "two adult cats".

Now this poor young guy may pay the price.

It's been a while since I put a finger on a particular cat.  I usually can squeeze in "one more".  But August adoptions have been slow and we're buried.

I'm going to leave this in the hands of other rescues to help him.  But I'll be going to bed tonight thinking about him.

I am scheduling a post on my Facebook page about this guy, with a link to your post, at 7:30 AM your time. Paws crossed someone, somewhere comes through for him.

I see Bay Cat stepped up, they have his picture and story on their adoption page.

They have been terrific caring for my old Siamese with his many health issues.

This vet office is dangerous to visit, their reception is full of cuteness hoping to find a home. You can loos hours playing with kittens and baskets of toys...

Hope Orange turns out to be as sweet as Doug the orange and white boy that was adopted last week to make room.

Love a happy ending.

So glad there is such a caring vet clinic that would look after his medical care

Thanks to Bay Cat and Beth for getting one more out. FYI I am currently fostering the declawed LARGE calico named Stella that was on the site until last week. She is quite the Princess and loves to chat and bribe me for treats.

Thank you Caroline for that note, it is always a treat for me to know who actually was saved from that site. Good luck with "the Princess" and here's hoping she finds a loving forever home soon. Calicos are Special girls, lol, they always have lots of "attitude" and Bless their l'il hearts , they are very loving too !
