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.

Sounds fair enough to US!

As it stands now Rosemary and her kittens have a tentative rescue for them - which frees up 7 spaces :D. I know for a fact that Grayson does not pts animals and tries very hard to find homes, that is how my Trooder got here. Thank you so much for caring and for your donation, my heart smiled widely Monday morning when I got the news.

OH goodness I had to go re read YOU sponsored Rosemary! YOU ARE THE BEST!! Thank you so much!!

Laure -

We can't claim sole sponsorship of Rosemary. We contributed part of the amount, but we listed all 11 kitties on Paypal.

How Grayson handled that, we know not. We're just glad they all got to live a little longer.

Thank you for the birthday wishes. You're not late - you're early for next year. My own nephew sent me flowers but they arrived today (July 8) so I'll take wishes/flower whenever I can get them. We had a quiet day and enjoyed treats all day long.

Hello, here is what I got from a post on their yahoo group -

Chive lost his life even after a trip to the vet's.

Some of Rosemary's kittens were so very weak. Crowded conditions have not helped in monitoring everyone's health.

Rosemary was too sick to be adopted last transport but now that she is healthy and spayed, no one wants her???

Landry is still have trouble with recurring URI.

I believe, Paploo and Lorenzo were adopted out shortly after we sponsored them.

Grayson is slow in updating their website, you can join their yahoo group if you want more info quicker - http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/friendsofgraysoncohumanesoc
