Thankful Thursday and Feline Friday September 15-16, 2022

I am so very thankful for folks who have
rescued abandoned kittens and adult cats.
They did not choose to be abandoned and
left to forage for themselves.

Almost 13 years ago we found our Lucy
wandering around behind our home. We 
asked around the neighborhood to see
if we could find who had lost their kitty.
No one knew and so we adopted our dear
sweet Lucy! Here she is with Russell in
the morning while he has his cup of coffee.
You can see she is on a leash as we take care
she does not wander ever again.
She likes to take us for walks and does
not mind the leash!

Here is Baila another rescue kitty.
Her family moved here from France a few
years ago and of course Baila came with them!
They are such dear people who foster 
mother cats and their babies until the kittens
are old enough to be adopted. 

Here are three kittens who are now in their
furrever homes! Their mother Zoe was 
adopted by one of our neighbors!

Here is Zoe while she was still being
fostered until her kittens were old enough
to be adopted.

Now Zoe is in her furrever home and she 
was adopted by one of our neighbors!
So I get to see her everyday. She also is
an indoor cat only so she is safe and sound.
When our neighbor needs to be out of town I
get to feed her and play with her.
These are just a few of the cats I know that
are rescue cats. Have a lovely day!
Many thanks to Brian for Thankful Thursday and 
many thanks to Sandee for Feline Friday!!!!!

  10. All cats should be indoor-only and allowed out only with supervision, like you do with Lucy. Too many bad things can happen.
