It’s been a while since I’ve tapped anything. With December upon us we had a number of events we attended in order to take advantage of Christmas shoppers. We missed the deadline for applying for a grant and we didn’t get into our usual Christmas venue so we needed to find alternatives. We attended the […]

Getting stressed trying to figure out where our fosters will go when our students go home for Christmas.  We had an adoption fair on the weekend but we didn’t adopt out as many as I hoped for…although delighted that a few found their forever homes.  Thank you to our volunteers; Charlene, Blair, Laura and Jennifer […]

Sorry…been quiet although rescue hasn’t. Been working on getting a raffle together. Didn’t realize there was so much work.  Kara and Risa did all the paperwork to apply for eligibility and then after we were approved, they applied for the actual lottery license. No work required on our part – just our signatures but then we […]

A note with a donation, received…. “Thank you Dr. Alex for bringing me to the home of my new Mom and Dad. It took awhile but I now have them wrapped around my furry paws. I get tummy rubs, drink water from Mom’s grandmother’s glass (it’s kinda old) that’s on the end table and I […]

Hopefully we can participate at other events. We are gradually adopting out our rescues but 2 fell through. With emails flying back and forth, we figured out which KK […]

People were dressed in shorts and tee shirts.  It was a time to give thanks for the blessings we have living in this country where we enjoy so much freedom….and despite our brutal […]

Without sounding like a broken record and for those of you not of the baby boomer generation, a broken CD….technology can be a curse or a blessing. Even with all of us back at it, the texts and phone calls keep coming. Pleas from finders of cats and kittens that are dumped on their property, […]

Friday night.   Wouldn’t you know it. The weekend – plans and commitments. Beautiful weather.  Three of us are out of town…”oh don’t worry. …things will be fine”….and then…. A foster reports one of the 2 placed with her isn’t getting along. Called a new applicant. I forgot to ask if she smokes. More phone calls. […]

Another busy week juggling and running…..got the paperwork from Animal Services. At last count we had close to 70 cats in care. I don’t know how Alex keeps every one of her buffer cats figured out- who needs to be spay/neutered, where they could go and then lugging them all over town to their foster […]

Memories..oh oh…here comes another song…..”in the corners of my mind” ….and covered in dust. Attended a City Council meeting to support the TNR pilot project deputation. It was good to hear our rescue mentioned –  once by Councilor Larry Hebert who asked if TNR had the support of other “groups such as Kitty Kare”, and by Chair, Councilor […]
