When I put out the 4 in Terrell, I put Mama and Summer together and Simone and Crystal together.  Immediately Mama and Summer got into the same carrier (so cute) and Simone and Crystal exchanged carriers.  I always worry putting them together but it all worked out this time. 
September Closeout
Placed 50 in 9 North Texas counties.  This total number of 431 is over 100 less than last year.   I blame it on EXTREME heat then rain, rain, and more rain.

Our Cats after Release: 
1.     Cedar Hill:  Ella and Wonton went to this air conditioned garage.  Ella has now relocated to a friend of the property owner to have a safe indoor-only home.  She originally came from an adoption group – so this is every good.  She was SHY with the group and did not show well at adopt-a-pets.  Wonton is now Bella and is doing well.
2.     Aubrey:  Trinity, Shimmy, Jamie and Dottie June went to this garage.  I saw Dottie June and 2 out of the other 3 are seen regularly.  All good!
3.     Aubrey:  Santos and Holiday went to this workshop and carport.   SOME HOW – Santos got out the first night (?????) and has not been spotted.  Holiday is around all the time and living mostly under a shed. 
4.     Flower Mound:  Oreo went to live at the plant nursery to be friends with Lilly, a cat we put there several years ago.  Oreo has adjusted well there.

5.     Parker County:  Union and Roy went to this workshop/shed.  Union has taken off but Roy is around and is now Ian.  He will even lets the family pet him.  They have a great cat house, too.  Take a look:

Calls/Emails:   Call to Help an Elderly Lady
Received a call from a friend of an elderly lady who is having a cat problem.  I called but she does not answer, the mail box is full, and that phone number does not accept texts.  I am stumped!   I will continue to call for several more days – BUT – if you won’t answer the phone, I cannot help you or your friend. 

BMG:   The Cat with Massive Diarrhea  
I found a place for him this week, finally.  I hope he is happy there.  

OMG:   Missing Paperwork
We have a rule:  Forget the paperwork, and you can take your cat back home with you.  It happened this week BUT the paperwork had been given to the person but it fell between her car seats…!!!   When found, I took the cat.  GEEZ!

BMG (Bitch/Moan/Groan):  Massive Diarrhea

2.     Southlake:  Sandy and Thomas went to this garage with a cat door in a window.  They see both but Sandy in around more regularly.  They have adjusted well!    
3.     Lucas:  Screech went to this barn in Lucas.  He is friendly boy but gets over-stimulated.   He is doing great with the barn owner and seems to really be enjoying the barn environment.    

Calls/Emails:   Mystery Phone Number in Waxahachie
Received a call from a lady in Waxahachie.  She said I had called her…???  I checked all my numbers for relocations and cats but could not find her number.  I apologized and I hung up.  Checking my recent number, YES I had called her – or at least my phone called her.  She said she gets “mystery” calls all the time.  We both have AT&T.  Wonder if there is something weird going on…???
BMG:   Massive Diarrhea
Got a big guy in house that has VERY BIG POOP and always loose.  Got to find a place for him that will “understand” his problem.  Had it checked – and all clear of disease or parasites.  ???

OMG:  “Jet”   Congestive Heart Failure
Jet was a big, black cat – very friendly boy.  He came from Hickory Creek Animal Services where he had been in quarantine for biting someone.  He was no problem here.  On Tuesday morning when I got up, I heard some strange noises in the cat room.  I went in and found Jet having trouble breathing.  I got dressed and took him to the Emergency Clinic here in Lewisville.  X-rays discovered that his is lungs were filled with liquid.  He died during the exam.  This was all from 5:30 am to 7:30 am.  I took his body to All Care for a group cremation.  This was certainly a shock – he was only 2 years old.  RIP, Jet!
