The sun was pouring in the house today. Ed and Lily always take advantage of a warm, sun-filled spot.
Kane in tow.
I was informed after returning home that someone dumped a mother cat and her 8 kittens (eyes still closed) in a box at the end of a nearby road in our town. THE END OF A ROAD! What is wrong with people? The lady that found them lived close to the spot and thankfully took them in to her house to keep them safe until someone could take them. Our shelter is full and could not help her. The rescues are full. This lady that helped them cannot afford to care for them so a temporary spot was needed. Last I heard, they are safe and that is the most important thing but this sort of stuff happens all too often when the shelters are full. I get very tight in the chest when I get these calls but I know that there are as many good people as there are irresponsible people and things will work out. But, 9 more cats will eventually need a home. It's so discouraging.
When I get anxious, I bake.
I usually have lots of company in the kitchen when I bake and tonight I was joined by the birthday girl.
While I baked, she played with the ribbon on the cook-book.
