Bad Calls/EMAILS: Friendly Cats Dumped in the Country
Received an email from someone saying there are 5 cats that have been dumped. I replied and asked if they are friendly. She responded with a YES. Now – those friendly cats need to get off the street and into an adoption group but she has not called me to discuss options and she DID NOT INCLUDE A PHONE FOR HER IN THE EMAIL. I can probably IMMEDIATELY get those cats into a group but have not received a call from her yet! Hope I have a positive update next week on this situation because those cats are “in danger” in the country.
BMG: Moving/Mom Died/Too Many Cats
OK – cats breed. The only way to stop it is to get them spayed/neutered. Now they are moving this week, there are cats everywhere and she wants me to come get them. ALSO – it is sleeting and snowing. Suggest she move the cats with her because there is a TNR policy in Fort Worth where she is moving. But I had to listen to her cry over the phone…mom died…sorry…overwhelmed with cats…sorry…cannot take them at Barn Cats because the weather is too bad for placement and they are not sterilized…sorry! Sure – wait until there is a crisis. NOPE – no sympathy here!
OMG: Barn Cat Theme Song
Check out this website in California. There is a video and Barn Cat song there. Really good!
Gems from the Internet
Not only did I find the Barn Cat Song but many funny pictures from various internet sites. There is someone really creative in Nevada! Wish I had thought of some of these ideas.
“Thanks” for following the Barn Cats Blog. See you all next week. Peg
