It felt good today to be out in strange Canadian weather and rescuing cats. One of the shelters we rescue from has an awesome "Barn Cat" program. They don't euthanize feral or semi-feral cats but spay/neuter and vaccinate them then allow local farmers to take them for mousers.
Over the past few months that I've been rescuing from this shelter, I fell in love with one big ol' Tom cat who was part of the Barn Cat program that had the most soulful eyes. He looked like he had something on his mind. When I first saw Mr. Big Cheeks he was crouched low into his litterbox. Two months later, he was still in a cage as no farmer had taken him. I was incredibly excited to have a foster parent with a brand new barn come forward and offer to take him.
So I made the trek out to the shelter - it was a happy day today:
While I was there, the same foster Mom that took Mr. Big Cheeks also asked me to pick out a pregnant girl for her too! So I picked out a sweet little brown tabby with a huge belly. As I type this email, we have another foster Mom driving out to the high-volume shelter to (hopefully) rescue "Quinn" - another pregnant girl:
Regardless, it felt good to sing that silly little rescue song. Happy Friday all...
