Thanks, Laura.   You have any cats yourself?

Yeah..... I didn't initially think of obtaining so many (I had eight at one point).
I lived in the country for a few years and people would abandon their pets quite often. It was a natural growth in numbers.
I can't stress the importance of spaying and neutering one's pet!

Yeah, I agree.  There would be fewer strays around if everyone did that.

Thank God for the Humane Society.  Thanks to them, cats like Tatiana can find loving homes.

Tatiana has to go to the vet on Friday, but it's just her routine annual check-up.  She'll get her injections.

Yep, on March 10, it will be one year since I adopted her.

It's been a year already?  Tatiana is a very lucky girl to have found a good home with you; as Laura said, there are so many kitties in need out there. 

My little Charlotte is almost ten months old now, and she's very playful--I'm almost immune to cat scratches at this point, but it's all worth it when she curls up next to me at night.  I'll post a photo of her as soon as I take some new ones  ;)

I know. I can't begin to tell you the pain and abuse I have seen working at my location.

The sad reality though, is people don't realize that taking care of an animal (or in my case, multiple) is like taking care of a child. They adopt or purchase an animal, get in way over their head/s and decide that they can't do it anymore. You wouldn't dump your child on the street, so don't do the same to an animal. If you must give an animal up, take them to your local independent shelter or Humane Society, don't just leave them out there on their own.

I look forward to seeing them, Amanda.

Sadly, a lot of people do that.  Trilly, the cat I had before Tatiana, was such a cat, she was a stray on the streets.  She found her way to my back porch, and found a home with me for the next 12 years.

Jack and Cody, my not quite two year old Golden Retrievers were rescued from the streets as well. In April of 2011, at approx. 2 months old, after being discovered with their two sisters and brother by a dumpster, they were brought into the Humane Society location I work at. I took the boys home with me a week later and they have been here with me ever since.
