A word from our The Mom

I have been lax, this I know fully.  I've taken on a new roll as a volunteer and foster parent at Care Southcoast. It actually has evolved into a family affair on Saturday nights. The big guy, Molly's girl, the Blurp (who turned 4 in June) and I all go out and clean the shelter cat area and walk and feed dogs.

The main reason for this post today is that I have a foster kitten named Toot.  She came to me when she was a small kitten of 4 weeks old.  That's her in a laundry basket at work with me in early May.  She came to the shelter because her "owner" couldn't care for her bad eyes.  Her eye's have ulcers in both of them and the left eye has become progressively worse.

The shelter runs on a very small and tight budget and unfortunately wants to just remove her eye.  I want to give her a chance at possible eye sight so am running a chip in to gain some funds to get her to see a specialist.

Bad Left Eye

She is such a love and LOVES the family tremendously.  I would love to keep her but our house size and the amount of dogs/cats/people we have now just isnt possible to keep her.  My wish is to have her go to someone I know so I can keep up with her.  Is that person YOU? :)

we'd scoop her up if we could, but we chip'd in so at least she can get her eyes better. We know she'll find a fur-ever home.

Our Lady deleted her Facebook. While this is furry good for her productivity and we get to blog & get petted more, there's one downside - we worry about missing updates on little Toot the Cute. Did she get to see the specialist yet? Purrrrrrs to her and to all of you!

Toot is so adorable. I wish I lived closer because she touches my heart strings. I do so hope she finds the perfect family who will care for her and allow you to continue to be part of her life.

I really hope that you raised enough to take care of that eye. Toot looks like such a sweet thing. I hope she finds her forever home soon with someone who can get her all the care she needs. Not that you aren't taking great care of her, but I want her to have a permanent home.
