Folks Helping Community Cats

Callie and Bootsie
These three pretty babies are community cats, tended to by a co-worker and his neighbor.  He is concerned about the super cold weather we are having.  I gave him a bag full of straw, and an old foam cooler shelter that belonged to Sammy, may he rest in peace.  My co-worker said he may even allow Maingee in his laundry room overnight, even though he is quite allergic to cats.  I suggested that he consider taking her to the veterinarian, since he's got her in his grip...so to speak.  His kids love this cat; she's quite friendly and she can be picked up and snuggled.  The neighbor next door leaves his garage door open, so the cats have a place to go that's out of the weather.  Isn't it great to know that we aren't the only ones?  

If we all...everyone of us who love cats...talk to other folks about spay and neuter, then someday there will be less cats killed in the shelters due to overcrowding.  We can put an end to the needless cruelty of too many cats roaming the streets, if people would just spay or neuter their animals.  Talk to your friends, your family, the guy standing behind you at the coffee shop!  Say it nicely, say it loudly, say it like you mean it...say it however you want to!  Spay or Neuter your pets!  Spay or Neuter your pets!  Spay or Neuter your pets!  As a world community, we HAVE to learn to be humane, and until they come up with another way of sterilizing, rather than surgery, we must press on. Your voice could get one person to take their animal to the vet, and lives can be saved.

  Spay or Neuter your pets!  Spay or Neuter your pets!  Spay or Neuter your pets!


  1. Hopefully the snuggly kitty winds up in the house with the kids! It's great that the neighbors are looking out for these kitties.

  2. Your co-worker and his neighbor are wonderful to take care of the kitties! And you are wonderful to help him with supplies and advice! Spay and neuter is very important but there are people who simply don't know the importance. It's great to say it loud :-)

  3. Kindness to less fortunate creatures is certainly the best start. And not only that, we cats never ever forget kind people!

  5. How sweet and incredibly kind! Thank you for repeating this message to everyone. We work on this all the time but one of our neighbors is so bull-headed.... mom says she can't talk about him here because HBO words would accidentally slip out. Purrs...

  6. I am glad there are angels out there helping kitties. I wish all the kitties could have a forever home.

  7. We hope this message gets out far and wide so there aren't kitties out there in the cold. Thank goodness for these three that your neighbors are looking out for them.
