Our Cats after Release: 
·         Update from last week:  I did not pick up equipment but I did place cats in Bells and saw Ryan from Ft. Worth. He is living in the barn on a back shelf in a bucket that lies on its’ side. He has a direct route to the outside if challenged in the barn and is doing well. The other orange tabby, Oscar, is also in the barn but I did not see him. Shelley, from ARF, is living in the woods but has become the “supreme snake killer” and the barn owners are very happy about that! 
·         I picked up in Crossroads on Sunday and saw all 4 of the Watauga hoarder cats that I placed there. They are now garage cats. The home owner teaches harp lessons from her home and some of the students have petted some of these cats….amazing! 
·         1 also picked up in Howe where 4 boys from Watauga were placed. They regularly see only one but lots of food is disappearing….so the boys are around. 
Phone Calls/Emails You Don’t Want to Get: 
·         OK…when someone calls you CRYING about her cats, you really bend over backwards to help that person. It is usually that someone has died and the cats are going to get left behind with no one to feed them. I called a lady last week and said I have placement for your two cats next Monday. When can you get them over here. She responded for Sunday. Then Sunday came, no cats, I called her. She has now decided that she does not want them placed in the warehouse that I had found….WHAT…A WAREHOUSE! There is no better place for cats….no coyotes, hawks, owls, rattlesnakes, etc., etc. – with heat and AC and the attention  of lots of employees. Well – the cats missed that opportunity ---  BUT – two fabulous cats, Peppermint, from Animal Allies, and Cutesy, from Siamese Rescue, got the opportunity and I am sure will thrive in that environment.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                
Cats NOT Placed Last Week - Update:  The 3 cats I brought back from Corsicanna are now living in Venus.       

Thanks for following the Barn Cat Blog.  See you next week.           Peg
