This week's Highs and Lows

Each night at the dinner table a friend of mine has her family recap a high and a low for the day.  Seems like a nice way for everyone to hear about what is going on with one another.  Here are some of my highs and lows for this past week.

HIGH:  A woman called us today wondering what she should do about a rat that was in her house.  Her cat caught it and kindly deposited it IN her house - unharmed.  Stephanie, our Receptionist, offered her our teeny weeny demonstration trap to use because she did not want any harm to come to this little rat.  She drove all the way up from Petaluma to borrow the trap and left with all of us cheering her on as she set off to catch her rat.  A very kind deed, Rae Lynn.

LOW:  Nina, our Spay/Neuter Clinic Coordinator arrived at our offices on Thursday to find a large dog crate with a cat inside sitting on our doorstep.  Unfortunately she (we're just guessing that it is a female) is so frightened and upset, we can't even touch her for an examination.  I know some would say "At least they didn't just abandon her outside on her own.", but dumping her on someone else is cowardly and cruel - just my opinion.
Cat left at our doorstep

HIGH:  Our SaveMart, Lucky and Food Max Share card program brought in $432.31.  Are you using yours?

GRATEFUL:  For our many wonderful volunteers who honor us each day, week and month with their time and talents.  For our many donors who support us from afar with their hard earned dollars, and up close by shopping and dropping at Pick of the Litter.  For our spay/neuter clients for making the effort to trap and bring in our "community cats" for altering.  For our hardworking staff who give above and beyond what is asked of them.   For the collective of people that contribute to all that Forgotten Felines is and allows us to help so many.

And while we're on the topic of good deeds, this fits right in - Enjoy and happy weekend.

Meow for now,
