I have somehow become the "crazy cat lady" of the condo association.
I went to breakfast with friends yesterday and then to my parents' house for lunch and basketball (darn those Nittany Lions!!) and then picked up some foster kittens (more on them tomorrow).
Around 8pm I got a call from Carol who is helping with the TNR we are trying to do in our neighborhood. She wanted to give me a heads up that she gave my number to another neighbor...
It seems that some idiot dropped 2 persians in the neighborhood. Very friendly and outgoing. It was thought they might be owned until they were seen too many times to think that someone was just letting them outside. So last night I went and picked up a very nice FRONT DECLAWED smoke gray persian. S/he is in an airline crate in my garage until I figure out what to do. I have an email out to the director of the shelter where I volunteer - I am hoping with the adoptions we have had in the last few days that there will be a space. If not, then I am off to find a rescue. The white one hasn't been seen in a few days (but, I am hopeful that it was the persian that was mysteriously dropped at CHA a few days ago).
I want a new law - it says that if you do things like this to an animal (it was less than 20 degrees last night - and this poor kitty is matted pretty bad), then I get to hunt you down and you get to spend a few nights outside. And don't give me this "we didn't have a choice" thing either....there are ALWAYS choices and you made a stupid one.
Anyhow...off my soap box now. I will keep you posted on this kitty and try to get a picture up too. If you know of anyone in Central Ohio who might want a persian, let me know.
