Yesterday, KSBY broadcast a news story on the Paws Cause Atascadero Creek Cats project.
Not only does Cathy describe the project and what we are doing with the cats there, she also makes a great pitch for why TNR.
What’s more, we got a pitch for Spay Day coming up this Sunday.
Check it out here.
Cathy saw Danny for the first time when she went to the Animal Services shelter in SLO to rescue several cats that had been sent there by someone’s vindictive ex-girlfriend. Don’t ask.
As she walked past the rows of cats in their cages, Danny came right up to the front of his cage, rubbed up to the bars and almost pleaded with her to scratch him on the head.
The shelter staff said he’s a fourteen year old brought in by his “owner” who didn’t want him anymore. No reason. I guess he had just become inconvenient. Since Danny was so old, he was practically unadoptable and was due to be put down in a couple of days.
Unable to bear the thought of killing this wonderful old guy, Cathy started the process to rescue him out of the shelter. Over the next few days, they discovered a malignant tumor on his abdomen which was removed and we brought him to his new home.
Danny appears to be healthy. He loves his wet food which is good because he’s pretty much skin and bones and he purrs whenever we pet him. He is settling in well with his three roommates Sherman, T2, and Weezer.
Journal Plus is a magazine published in SLO for people who live on the Central Coast. I hadn’t run across it until recently. It appears to offer an interesting and entertaining insight into the people and activities on the Central Coast.
The current issue has a very nice article about Paws Cause. Check it out here. The Paws Cause article starts on page 13.
[Update] It’s mid-afternoon now and it stopped raining hours ago. Sigh.
We are having a real rainfall here at our ranch on the westside. What a wonderful sight. Now, if it would just continue for — oh I don’t know — how about 40 days and 40 nights.
