    Some of you know that I recently lost my beloved cat Lovey. I felt the need to do something I haven't done in years. Shelter newborn orphan kittens. Since May 21st I've been raising a litter of 3 orphan kittens. They have been my saving grace in recovering from loosing my cat. I finally have managed to wean them from their bottles and they are now big kitties and are eating out of a bowl. They spend the day in my bathroom running, jumping and trying to climb my bare legs when I go in to play with them. I am going to have to turn them over to a local rescue shelter so they can find happy homes and families. That will make me sad and I will miss them, but they have done their job. I am over my loss and I can give them up knowing that I helped them live and grow up. It puts a smile on my face and in my heart!
    Years ago I shelter for the same rescue group and I think I am going to start sheltering again. I did it for about 8-9 years and forgot how much fun it was and discovered I actually miss it, a lot.
    Anyway, thought you guys might enjoy a warm and fuzzy on this lovely evening. I thank you for listening HERC

    Thanx for the kind words and support. After a few litter of kittens I may gey grumpy again. Lack of sleep from feeding kittens tends to cause grumpiness LOL Herc

    That is very nice. Could use more people like you. I think that would do a lot to help lift spirits if you think about it. So many who can barely sleep... What a better way to spend your time and feel good but by caring for a lap full of fuzzies needing you during all hours (until you learn to sleep again!)

    Glad to hear that you've decided to keep sheltering babies. When I met you a few months ago, you spoke about sheltering quite a lot and I could tell it was something you really enjoyed.

    Keep up the good work.

    Good job, Herc! When I get down about the state of the world, I can look back on a post like this and be grateful there are people like you around taking care of some of our most vulnerable creatures :) Thank you.
