I don’t know how caretakers at the shelters do what they do. Right now there’s an unprecedented need for food & space to house surrendered animals, especially cats. And as Anne at the Animal Refuge League reminded me the other day, it’s kitten season, so the squeeze will only get worse. Sometimes at Fetch we’re asked if we know someone who’s looking to adopt, and I just think, please let’s talk about solving the problem and work it out, for the animal’s sake. And then the next thought is, work it out for the shelter’s sake. How much more can they absorb? If you can, please donate to our ARL Food Drive, now through March 25th. You can even contribute food over the phone, and any food purchased for the Drive is 10% off. See our events page for more info.
Meanwhile, meet Carl. Isn’t he handsome? Here’s his Meet Your Match description; his personality type is ‘The Personal Assistant’: You’re working on the computer? Let me press the keys. Reading the paper? I’ll hold the pages down for you. Watching TV? I’ll just plop in your lap so you can pet me. I love an orderly household, don’t you? I’ll help you with all your chores, and I’ll help you relax when we’re done. You’ll wonder how you ever managed without me.
