I had a lot of interest in Nigel but for many different reasons the interest did not turn into an adoption. So, he is still available. Not one person has asked about Audrey. Surprising, since she is the one that I thought was the prettiest of them all. Everyone sees something different. I am doing up a little write-up on the two remaining kittens and sending it up to the shelter for them to add to their website. I was hoping I would not have to do this but at least more people will see their adorable faces. Most people want kittens under 12 weeks so I only have a small window of time now.
The other lady in our town that fosters for our shelter said that adoptions have slowed right down. She still has many kittens of all different ages to adopt out. Around 20 to be exact. She, too, has posters up at the vet clinics.
Once again, a reminder that we MUST spay and neuter our cats. There are 150 at our shelter as I type this and with the cold weather here now, they are coming in fast. Many people feed outdoor stray cats all summer and do not try to coax the cat indoors. Then, winter hits and they feel sorry for it so up to the shelter it goes. They see a lot of that every year.
I think of the many that came in to the shelter the day Annie arrived with her 2 day old babies. If you remember, it was a seizure of 30 some cats and many had kittens, were pregnant or in heat. They were all from one house where they had been abandoned. No food, no water. 4 dogs were also running around in the house when the inspectors walked in. They, too, were starved. I chose Annie as her kittens were the youngest and I knew I could commit to her.
So Annie is on the Holistic Select soft food now and she really likes it. Let's hope it does the job and she doesn't have to visit the vet. I'm sure you've noticed her pouty face. She has the look of a lost soul. I know she loves it here though. She is always purring and nudging me and prrrt'in around.
It's cool here but no snow yet. I can't believe all the people that posted about their first snow-fall. NO! Don't want it, thank you. We are emptying out the shed before winter of anything we don't need or want. That's a LOT of stuff. We need dry weather for this.
We are 'purging junk' Woo..hoo! after breakfast out, of course. :)
