Wow Norma, that is a lot of kitties. Do you work with a cat rescue group? Is it hard not to get attached before they get adopted?
No, I donít work with a cat rescue group, but my daughter volunteers at our local Humane League. Some of the kittens I did get attached to, especially two little ones that we found outside last year, (March) that we thought they were dead. They were so tiny that we had to bottle feed then every few hours and also make them urinate by getting a wet cloth and wiping.
I know we canít take care of all of cats and really donít have that much money to do it either. The Humane League has days that cats are free for adoption. We also placed signs in local pet shops so the kittens could be adopted.
That litter I posted was from two outside cats. We also had just as many last year. Each kitten had its own personality, just like people do. There was one kitten named Tipps that I was especially fond of, but she went to a good home. We do get to hear from some of the owners.
The only problems we have found just this year is all the dogs and kittens are getting more fleas. In the last month and a half, just for the inside kittens and dogs we have spent over 300.00 for flea medicine. We have to get some tomorrow too. The vets said this year is really bad for fleas and the regular stuff that usually works doesnít work this year.
Brian has probably taken care of a lot more kittens and cats then we have.
He is a gem.
