I need a signal boost, all.
A friend of a friend in Terre Haute, IN needs to rehome several of her cats so that she can move into public housing. One of these cats has four two-week-old kittens. Can anybody in that area foster mama and kittens and find them new home when they’re old enough? Mama and kittens are doing well; eyes are open but ears have yet to migrate north.
If anyone out there can help or knows someone who can, please leave a comment. And spread the word!
Question for Robyn and everyone else: I have a friend in the Minneapolis area who has decided she wants a cat — she hasn’t had a cat in about 40 years and has spent most of the time since then raising and showing Wheaten Terriers. Her one remaining Wheaten is lonely but she doesn’t feel like she could handle another dog. Her current dog likes cats – he is around them frequently at relatives’ homes. Does anyone have any suggestions beyond just going to the shelter? I wondered if there were any fosters in the area, where she (and maybe even her dog) could meet the cat or kitten first. Thanks!
I’d recommend checking with the area shelters – they may have people fostering cats for them, in homes with dogs, OR they may have cats right there at the shelter who like dogs. The volunteers will likely have some idea of which cats would and wouldn’t do well in a home with a dog.
Anyone in the Minneapolis area have a shelter/foster suggestion? Please leave a comment! (For that matter, anyone with more insight into the topic, feel free to chime in!)
I stopped by the post office yesterday, and to my surprise I found…
Another bonnet! Which is good, because it never hurts to have a backup, am I right? (My favorite part of that box: “Cats love it!” That… has not been my experience.)
As is the way with Amazon, they didn’t tell me who sent it, so if whoever sent this bonnet will contact me so I can thank you properly, I’d appreciate it. (Now we’re ALL SET if Caroline has at least one girl!)
(Fun fact: As of Saturday, there were still some houses in our neighborhood with Christmas trees in the window. I have to admit, I like seeing them.)
