I'm also going to write up an article for my local paper about how I found the cat and the 5-hour time period between delivery to vet and the birth of these kittens. I'm hoping I can interest a few people that way in taking some of the kittens.
Finally, I interviewed a woman who owns a historic inn in Massachusetts who mentioned she was looking for two kittens and was having a hard time finding any. Wonder if she'd be wiling to ship some in from NC?
I can't stand for animals not to have homes. Cats and dogs especially are just so full of love and spirit and are so happy just by being around you (except our two cats, who are pretty grouchy unless we're feeding or combing them). Sometimes when I pet my cats and get their purr up to full throttle, and they're tilting their head back so I can scratch under their chin and looking at me with such love, I think, "It will be impossible to have a bad day today after this. How often in life do you get a chance to make someone this happy??"
Everyone hug your animals tonight and tell them one extra time that you love them. And if you know of anyone who wants some beautiful calico cats, contact me!
