To Haliburton and back with 22 cats!!!

It's been a crazy exhausting week!  On Wednesday we drove up to Haliburton and stayed at Aaffien's place overnight.  She was a wonderful host and we ate well and had a lovely time.  The next morning we got up early and headed to Wonita's, it was hot and the black flies were out.  Thank God for my bug hood!  We spent four hours tramping up and down her hill with traps and by the end we had 18 cats and 4 little kittens ready to go.  Then a four hour drive back and then more unloading and setting up of cats at the recovery centre.  No rest for us, at 5 a.m. on Friday we were up to get the cats to the clinic then we picked them up at 4 p.m. and it was back to the recovery centre.  By the evening I was staggering I was so tired!  We had 11 females and 6 males, our little blind cat went directly to a vet, it looks like she will need one removed for sure.  Yesterday, after assessing the cats, we moved 7 friendly ones to foster homes, and of course the kittens as well.  Tomorrow it's back to Haliburton with the rest.

It's been a real team effort helping these cats, and I must thank Aaffien, Sandi, Lesley and Susan for their amazing work and dedication, and to Michelle for taking in more fosters.
