If you're from Saint John you've probably heard that the Saint John SPCA Animal Rescue has been function at capacity for quite awhile now. There is a homeless cat epidemic in our area that is horrifying as well as embarassing. Last week friends who are foster parents put out the message that the shelter was past capacity and that this was a huge concern to all involved. Many people helped out by adopting kittens and cats on Saturday at the Kitten Shower but there are still so very many cats in need of homes.
Husband and I decided to respond by being "emergency foster parents". Just for now we've got two lovely girls living in our spare bathroom (you see how that wouldn't work all the time since people might actually want to visit us). We're desperately hoping that someone we know (or at least connect with via facebook, twitter and this blog) will fall in love with them (cause we already have), take them home and open up a very prompt space for some other little girl.
|Holly wanted to make sure i remembered she was in the backseat.|
She's a sweetheart
|She started out a little shy but is now quite outgoing.|
She likes her towel.
|Likes cuddles, particularly ear rubs, treats, drinking from tap and playing.|
|Portia is very curious about things. |
She looked at Sadie with interest rather than fear
|She is a cuddly purrbox.|
|She has the most awesome fluffy feet with extra toes. So cool.|
|It's hard to photograph but she's got gorgeous green eyes.|
She's just lovely.
