It is official.....

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. 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.


  1. I never, ever understood why people drop animal like that. I guess I'm glad I don't understand...

  2. We don't see how people can do that and live with themselves. Purrs you'll find the white kitty or else s/he is already safe at the shelter.

  3. Arrrgh!!! People like that are the reason we have 13 Cats...they dump 'em on the edge of the Desert and hope the coyotes will do the rest. And of couse some of them end up at our house, starving, filthy and scared. I hope Karma catches up on those sub-humans.

  4. We agree... there are ALWAYS choices. Even if it meant abandoning your kitty somewhere indoors where they'd be SURE to be found, like a church or a mall or something. They'd attract a lot of attention that way... WAY better than just leaving them outside to fight for survival! Where we live, someone threw a puppy out of the window of a moving car on the highway a few months ago. (The dog was fine, but it just shows you how crazy humans can be!)


We love to hear from you.....
