Update on the Mama Cat and Babies!

The backyard neighbor is over visiting tonight. The cat and her kittens were mentioned.
"Oh, my next door neighbor took them to the shelter" It turns out that the cat actually originally belonged to the neighbor on the other side of her-2 houses down from backyard neighbor. When she found out about the cat and kittens, she came over, got them and had them in her shed for 2 days then took them to the shelter and turned the neighbor(original owner) in to animal control. This woman also has 5 other cats that she just lets run around.
Backyard neighbor knew that I thought they were missing, or dead. She was here the day after they had come up missing. "I forgot to tell you." Phffftttt...30 seconds, a quick phone message...

I am So relieved! I felt so badly. I am grateful that they will now be taken care of, our shelter is a no kill shelter. I'll have to take the cat food and some other donation things over to them. I used to go volunteer occasionally, but they moved to the other end of the county and with gas prices the way they were, I hadn't been in awhile.

It was such a gorgeous afternoon, really windy on the north side of the lake, so I drove to the southwest side-to a little public park. I watched the ducks, so cute, with their feathery butts up in the air as they fished for their lunch. I could see the last of the fall colors in the hills across the lake. Sitting there it was difficult to imagine(or look forward to) the snow that's in the forecast for this weekend. This afternoon may have been my last lake fix for this year. But who knows, 3 years ago I was walking on the beach(shoes on) in a sweatshirt and jeans on Dec. 24th, a sunny 50 degree afternoon. That's Michigan weather for you. *insert smiley face here*

~Thanks For Stopping By~
