Weekend event

 The rescue had an adoption event at the local Petsmart this weekend. Mom doesn't mind doing them, but it is tiring. A lot goes in to planning it and then getting there, setting up, talking to people then breaking down. 

It can be hard doing events at pet stores since a lot of people aren't coming in always looking to adopt. But it's good to talk to people about whatever.

Of course, things don't always go as planned. We got a few applications and did send one kitten home.

However, Friday night a long haul trucker stopped in with a small kitten he had found in Texas and had been caring for for a couple of days but realized he was in over his head. Meet Laredo.

The Sunday about an hour after we packed up, someone left a pair of kittens at the store. So they are with us too. 

It's a tough time of year for small rescues: lots of kittens and not always a lot of adoptions.
