Tabby #3 and the deep freeze
This is Katie, the three month old that Connie has been fostering. Connie was crying when I picked Katie up this morning. She's off to be spayed and then she will be up for adoption. I guarantee she won't last the weekend.
I've been so worried about the ferals in this weather but when I fed today most of the cats were there. Best of all, Minky has reappeared and Socks was on the ground, back to their usual routine. And I saw Chester, first time since he was released a week ago. The floppy eared black cat was also at the dumpster, I only see him once in a blue moon. Somehow they are surviving. We have lots of shelters and there are other spots for them to huddle in. If only I could figure out how to keep the canned food and water from freezing. Luckily most of the cats come as soon as we arrive. We all use a clicker to announce our presence, it really helps, especially in this weather.
We've been very lucky to have lots of support for all the cats we care for. If you would like to donate to help pay for cat food or vetting costs, please follow the paypal link, or feel free to contact me. Thank you so much for your support!
