Cat rescue

May 19, 2019

Hi Everyone,

Well. As we say here in the American South, I could chew nails and spit.

Two possibly feral cats have showed up.

Yelling, totally disrupting the neighborhood, or my section of it.

The cats are gorgeous. At least, I think there are two.

Both short hairs. One is all white; the other is all white with bits of gray. The bits of gray could have been leaf shadows on an all white cat.

They are living in my fenced-in back yard.

My six cats, all rescues, are upset. They do not want the invaders.

I, of course, am upset about my cats being upset and exposed to danger like fights or disease.

And, six pets are the legal limit where I live.

I am leaving food when I can watch the invaders and my cats are inside.

I want to gain the confidence of the invaders in me so I can catch them, get them to my vet, vaccinated and neutered.

My vet will have a solution about ownership. These are so pretty I think they will be immediately adopted but I’m not willing to take the risk.

All the animal shelters here are overflowing.

Perhaps there is a way I can foster the invaders and still meet the requirements of the law.

I don’t know; my vet, a gentle, kind and generous man–his staff is wonderful; all animal lovers–will know.

I will give this slow, very slow process two weeks and then call animal control for help.

In the meantime, I go to the angels of everyone.

Angels of Everyone

Angles of Everyone,

Especially the angels of me, my cats and these two invaders:

Please reassure everyone that I love them all; I will do my best to make certain everyone has attention, love, caring and everything needed like food and shelter and medical care.

Please tell the invaders that I am a kind, loving person who only wants the very best for them.

Please tell them to make friends with me.

Please tell them that I will take them to my vet who will make sure they have not and will get no disease like rabies or leukemia.

Angles of these cats, of my cats, of me and of all of us, I thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Thank you for making communication clear.

And so it is.

One thought on “Cat rescue

  1. Barbara, thank you. Rescues and shelters usually have traps that you can catch them in. If they are not friendly, shelters won’t adopt them out, but rescues might have a place. The best thing to do is what you propose, Trap, neuter and release (TNR) them where they are. Your indoor cats will eventually get used to them. for any questions, you can always call me or email
    Miss you, luv you.
