I was reading a quote by Mother Teresa that talked about finding your own Calcutta. Well I guess I have found mine, saving cats. Sometimes it feels like the personal cost is a little high, especially after last week. I was away on vacation, except there were all kinds of cat crises and I spent a lot of time on the phone and on email, and even more worrying. My poor husband.
I had to find new foster homes for both Petunia and Cola, Biffy went to the vet for her dematting, I made arrangements for Petal to go to a sanctuary, the list goes on. Still, somewhat refreshed, I returned home and great news, Maria caught both the kittens I had spotted on the roof the week before. They are safe and happy at Lynn's, at this age they barely need taming.
|Kittens just after their rescue|
Late yesterday afternoon I received a call from a woman who had a stray in her yard and didn't know what to do so I stopped by and also found the tamest kitten purring away. Then when we looked around found a half a dozen kittens of various ages, living behind an apartment building bordering on a ravine. A new project for me, just what I need, but how can I turn away after seeing their little faces.
The tame kitten came home with me, what else was I to do, and is in my laundry room (hence the name) still purring away and playing with toys.
