Someone is going to consider one of my babies!

I've taken in 7 cats since Thanksgiving and 6 are up for adoption - tho only 3 are ready (shots/fixed.) One of them, Natasha, is going to get picked up for a "visit" with the potenial adopter tomorrow night. I hope she gets adopted, but I'll also miss that little firecracker! She's so helpful, has to be in the middle of whatever you are doing. She's always helping the roomie send im's - tho she can't spell! You can't go to the bathroom in peace because she's got to jump on the shoulder and rub your face! She has a totally sweet face, pretty coloring. She's on Petfinder.com, Austin Texas, under Cat Angels. She has a brother named Boris & her mom is Rocky.

I'm going thru a group and the lady checks out the people, pretty throughly. Back in Jan she placed another one of mine, a black cat I took from an apt complex on Halloween.

Ya know, she was placed & returned, but staying at the other lady's house. But we got a GREAT app on her today!

Don't you find it so hard to let go of your babies like that, I know I get so attached to my kittens. Natasha sounds like a real beauty. I hope she gets adopted as well.

Yes, but I keep telling myself that she's better off in a home of her own. Natasha is a bundle of personality & she'll make the right person a GREAT cat!

I'm sure the cats are thankful that there's such a good soul out there that takes them in and helps find them homes. And I'm glad to meet you as well. Over the last four years, I've repeatedly taken in kittens and cats that were in need of homes. Like you, I made sure to place them with new owners that would be the best match for them even though it's hard to do. One thing that might help in the future is to see if there are any cat and/or dog neutering groups in your area that might help with the potential overpopulation issue. That was the biggest problem that I faced. I was lucky that here in PA there's a local group that helps people like me and you. Good luck with your cats. I'm sure you'll find good homes for them.

I agree, and there are. These cats have all come to me because the owners, for whatever reason, couldn't keep them anymore. I learned yesterday that the lady who gave us this little family because her husband told her it was him or the cats back at Thanksgiving, has filed for divorce. See, I'd've told him - "well, nice knowing ya..."

I commend you for taken in cats. I am a cat lover and I do not even like going to shelters because I cannot stand to see all the cats in those small cages and knowing that the majority of them are going to be put down.Keep up the good work you are a good humanitarian. My hats off to you!!!!1

Panda our baby cat! - Panda bear our Kitty
I totally feel your pain I also have or I should say Had 8 cats which included 3 kittens. I just recently got good homes found for the kittens, and possible the two feril cats I took in may be going to a Barn for Mouse control! at least I am hoping! I am over run and my being a good sameritan has turned into a nightmare! Good Luck to you though!

you have a cute Panda kitty. The 2 that are in my avatar are Oliver & Rygel. Oliver is the little black & white kitten (now he's a year & a half!) Rygel was just 1 last year when the pix was taken, he's a funny boy!

You are quite a pet lover. The world needs so many of your kind. We love pets, too. Even those animals which are roaming around with seemingly no one permanently taking care of them, we feed them whenever they come to the house. In my country, the temperatures are very friendly to naturally grown animals and people are mostly friendly to them, too.
