Bad Calls/EMAILS: Don’t Mess with Mother Nature
I have someone trapping in an apartment complex to try and get cats removed before their caregiver moves next week. NOW IT IS SLEETING which means no self-respecting cat will be out getting into any trap! Plus, there will be the travel problems trying to get to a clinic (if it is even open) to get shots updated. So we will be “down to the wire” getting these cats before next Thursday…but…something always works – we shall see!
BMG: Tons of Fun -- Gumbo
Gumbo is a large buff tabby that came to Barn Cats from a family that was giving up their cats due to a move. WELL – I put Gumbo in a barn with a winter hidey box and HE DID NOT FIT THROUGH THE OPENING! So, I brought him home and placed a more “stealth” cat on this property. He is now loose in the cat room and getting along fine with all the other cats.
OMG: Poorly Conceived Websites
I have been working on getting our website re-designed for YEARS! Now it is about to happen. The last piece is the US GROUPS list which is about 10-years out-of-date. GEEZ! The current site is in HTML and is almost impossible to get it updated. NOW it will be in Word Press and easy to get changed. To update the GROUPS list, I have been scouring the internet to get a current listing of groups that place cats in barns. Some websites have no address for the organization so you have NO CLUE what part of the country or even the world where this group resides. Some give a region or “on the XXX river” which means nothing to me. PEOPLE: Remember folks from all over the country are looking at your site. Maybe they do not want people to get in touch with them…???
“Thanks” for following the Barn Cats Blog. See you all next week. Peg
