I am an animal rescuer.
I will save lives. I will lose lives.
I will make wise decisions.I will make mistakes.
I will be surrounded by people who understand what I do and how I feel.
I will be criticized by those who do not understand.
I will rejoice when each homeless huggable finds a new forever family.
I will suffer through days when I cannot get those lost out of my mind.

My visit to Murray

Hi all!  

I am back in town and finally settled in to my house with two Mama"s and Babies and 6 kittens!

Thanks to everyone that stepped up to help this week.  I found a foster for a Mama and 5 beautiful red kittens, there is rescue for many of the kittens, and I was able to pull enough to free up a several cages, which were promptly filled!.  There were 2 adoptions but 5 surrenders on that day alone.  The farmers are finding kittens and Mama's all over the place.  Too bad they do not take advantage of the spay and neuter twice a week here.  They just bring them to the shelter when there are too many.  Such a shame. 

I now have over my max of fosters.  Besides my own 8, I have 14 kittens, and 7 adults.   They are eating me out of house and home!!!

Deb, I want to thank you so much for your tremendous help!  You don't know what a boost to morale that was and being able to save all of these cats and kittens was a Godsend.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Janet,  George will have a home with other FIV cats and it is a very good home with one of our volunteers.  The other orange boy is gorgeous 2 year old surrender, and I know you will fall in love with him.  I did.  I will send you a picture.  Lara. 

Thank you for your offers of rescue!  Without rescue, we could not do anything!  Money helps a great deal, but Rescues and fosters are extremely important to make this all work!  Thank you!

Now, on to the next group of kitties.  I left several kittens at the shelter, some with their Mothers and 5 without.  They were young, and  need to get a little stronger.  I hope they make it.  Those 5 are little survivors tho, born wild and HAVE STRONG INSTINCTS OF SURVIVAL.  

One of them grabbed a small can of food out of my hand, and ran with it growling. He weighs less than one pound.  I put my bet on him for survival.  What a little cute thing.  I was laughing so hard!  It took 2 of us to take it away from him!

I don't know what the next weeks will bring but, I cannot make this trip except once a month, the cost is sooo much, not only financially but, emotionally.  My hats off to the girls at the shelter, who have to survive this on a daily basis. I get upset when they don't answer my e mails of calls or send me pictures but,  I do understand that they are overworked and overwhelmed.

Thanks again to everyone that responded to my desperate plea.

Kitty purrs and head bonks,
