Received a text from my niece, with the above photo attached. The text read, "A feral cat started meowing outside our window today! I thought about you! I fed him and I hope I can take him to the vet to get him neutered and adopted!"
I sincerely hope she is able to complete her stated mission, and if one kitty is saved, then that's a GREAT THING! My niece has volunteered at an animal shelter near where she lives in Ohio, and she works at a doggie-day care. I am immensely proud of her, and am glad that a little bit of her crazy-lady-with-cats auntie has helped her to imagine helping an animal in her our backyard. Her parents have done a terrific job in raising her and her two brothers, and my only wish is that I could visit with them more.
Thought of Groucho Marx when I saw the photo; look at those big eyebrows! Isn't it funny the way his tail looks like it belongs to someone else?
When I hear more, I'll pass the news along.
