The Grayson Eleven

Hi all, The Clowder's Food Source here. I have been in contact (email) with the folks (one folk, anyway) at the Grayson Shelter. I just thought I ought to let you all know what their last email said.
We do have sponsorship for Rosemary. However, when one gets sponsorship, it
just forces us to consider another cat when we are out of space. We did
have 3 leave this weekend and have rescue for a couple more which will leave
on Thursday.
We do not kill lightly and have not killed a cat for space for several years
now, however cat rescues are few and far between and one that pulled a lot
from us had to stop due to a grant agreement in her community (long story).

We are all volunteers and the email comes to my home address as we do not
have internet access at the shelter.

We are at the shelter cleaning every morning regardless of the holiday. The
animals need care and don't understand that people take holidays from work.

Thanks for caring.

The good news, maybe, is that with donations from Mom Laure, me, and probably others, the original eleven are looking at a little more time. The bad news may be that by doing that, we may have doomed some other cat, although we fervently hope not.

We do what we can, I guess.

Another hairs breath rescue would be nice

Hi, all. Allie here with just a quick note.

Not sure if anyone is working on this or not, but it looks like there is an entire cat family that has a PTS date of Monday, July 5. (apparently, putting down kittens does not take time off for holidays)

We heard about them from The Misadventures of Me. We're not sure how much could be done over a holiday weekend, but we thought we ought to mention this, just in case someone is close enough to rescue at least one or two of them.

On a happier note, for folks in the USA, Happy Independence Day. For the rest of you, happy July 4.
