I've been trying to get my system back to normal after that stressful month, and just enjoying our family. The PTSD is settling down a bit but our door and window paranoia remains, that may never go away, but at least it's starting to feel like a bad dream. Those 32 days that Buddy was gone made me crazy.

There were quite a few kittens at THS but they almost all had hold for adoption. I left feeling proud that I had helped in a small way to ensure that these kittens, and all the other ones I've rescued, didn't have to grow up to live outside and instead were going to loving homes. No matter where a homeless and/or feral cat lives, or how well it's cared for, it's still a hard life.
At the colony, after not seeing him for weeks, I'm seeing Morris again, and occasionally Penny, so it's just Clara who I haven't seen since the beginning of May. Bonnie seems to have joined the dumpster gang, smart move on her part, the ones who have buddies and come to eat when we arrive definitely do better.
Today is a rare day when the only cats I have to feed are my own!
