Last night I drove to far north and east Scarborough to try to rescue some kittens and check out a new trapping situation. As I was on my way there I had a flashback, I realized it was the route I took exactly one year ago to visit a very sick Teddy. Today is the anniversary of his death, I still miss him every day I feed at the yard. I broke down in tears last night as I was driving but I shook it off reminding myself that I was off to save kittens and that would be how I would honor him.
A lovely lady named Casey has been feeding a few ferals outside her house and knew the moms had seven kittens. When I got there no sign of them but thankfully I found them at the neighbours and quickly got two in traps. The rest scattered and we waited. I managed to get one more before the sun set, at least three were one their way to a new life.
