Animal Rescue Adventures

The big news this month is…drumroll please…I received a $500 donation from a very generous woman! I have to say I was very shocked. I am so unbelievably grateful for this donation. This will pay for the Trap, Neuter, and Release (TNR) of a lot of cats. I am humbled by her generosity and her trust that I will use this money to reduce the over-population of cats in the Valley.

Malcolm, a gentle boy with a mixed background, was found on the street as a stray. When Col Potter took him in and had him vetted, an I.D. chip was found and his owners were contacted. Sadly, they declined to take him. Fortunately for him, he was rescued by Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue and put into the capable hands of Julie, an experienced foster parent.

Well, it finally happened. They said it would, and they were right. They told me to wait it out, be patient, and just hang in there. It was only for a few months, a couple more weeks, then three days later the worst would be over. That’s what they said. I said something back, but it really isn’t fit to print. But, just like every other bit of bad behavior I have exhibited since May, I blamed it on the weather

The past month has been very stressful. Adoptions have been slow, and the rescues have not been accepting cats because, big surprise, they are full to the rafters. My son’s medical condition has been in serious decline, and I have had to focus most of my attention on him and his needs. That means I have often been forced to say “no” when I would normally say “yes.” I’m trying to focus on clearing out my foster ladies before the cats get too much older. I’m still accepting the occasional bottle baby or two, but that’s about all I can handle at present.

Moreno Blue Too found herself in a California shelter. Because she was very shy and nervous, the shelter felt she was not a good candidate for adoption. Thinking she was at least part Cairn, the shelter called Col. Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue.

Eunice is a soft, pretty Himalayan girl with pink eyes. I adopted her along with her sister, Fantasia from Rattie Ratz last year. We read about the passing of Eunice’s sister Fantasia in July’s issue of KRLM. Let’s hear how she’s doing now as she lives solo and after her second birthday.

August proved to be a long, difficult month. It was like moving heaven and earth to get cats and kittens either adopted or into rescue. People are either still vacationing or getting ready to return to school. The unrelenting heat certainly did not help. Throw in a few medical issues and sometimes you just want to throw up your hands and give up. But the cats are depending on us and in reality, if I give up, then I’m stuck with a lot of cats.
