So many cats here.

I never thought I was going to get into cat rescue, but I did. Now we have 3 rescued cats in our house, but soon to be only 2. I'm still looking at finding Tiger a home, and hopefully will find him one soon. The kitten is doing well downstairs and the female we got in yesterday is just fine sleeping in the closet. I put a blanket in there for her, and I hope she's comfortable. I don't know if she's eating or drinking, no idea where she's going to the bathroom either. I guess I'll figure that out one of these days. Looking forward to making this rescue work. This time last year, the rescue we worked so hard in saving died suddenly. I feel that this is a second chance for me, and that's what matters.

It's wonderful that you are taking cats in and taking care of them. So many are unwanted and just roam the streets. I don't see that here, but I have lived a place where cats had no place to call home. I took about 3 in at different times and fed others who came to visit and get a free meal. I love cats.

Great, coexist with the animals so is interesting lots of people ignore the animal, and let it roam the streets and unkempt. Luckily there ara still people like you who still want to share with other living creatures.

You are doing a wonderful job at saving the cats. It will be a blessing someday as you will see it unfold. I am sure the comfort in just knowing that you are helping them is quite a nice feeling. I do hope that you do get the chance to make it full rescue work as it does sound like you really enjoy it and really do well with the pets.

How many litter boxes do you have scattered around? Cats pretty much train themselves so she's using one somewhere. Things are getting a bit more busier around there, huh?

It's getting far too busy around here. Between the rescues and the gerbil babies, there's just so much happening. We have one litterbox for the 2 of them, and I do think she's using it, as we haven't found any surprises anywhere.

I don't know that I would be able to deal with taking rescued cats into my home, but mostly it is because I don't have a home right now (I live in a motel right now). I'm glad that you are able to do this if it makes you happy though. Have a great week!!!

That's a good thing you are doing for the cats and the community. I hope you are able to adopt all the kitties to a loving home.

I like cats as well. It is a good job to rescue cats. I have two she-cats at home. They used to live at my grandmother's country house, but my granny is ill now and cannot take care of them. I was sorry and did not want to leave cats in the country in the winter when no one was there. There are often some other cats who use to come and ask for some food in the country house. Maybe they even have their hosts, but they look hungry and I feel sorry for them. I do not want to be angry with them, but let them eat something.

I love kittens. Mine are past that stage. In fact if you try to play with Mawmaw she is like LEAVE me alone. Tink on the other hand is like a suction cup and wants to be stuck to me all the time. But I was his mommy when he was so sick at the Veternarians office where I adopted him. I would love to do what you are doing, My husband would not allow it. If your new cat is sleeping in the closet maybe make her up a litter box there and then you would know she is pottying for sure. Just give her a day or two she may come out at night while you are sleeping. Cats are strange like that when they come to a new place. Good Luck on finding them a new permanent home!
