Thanks to everyone who came out to the 4th Annual Project Jessie Reunion. We raised over $1,000!!! Tail wags until next year!
Some good news: Tabby from our office and a few other kitties in Shelly's care have all found wonderful homes. And the other week, just before a meeting, Karen Levenson (our Guelph staff member) found a wandering kitty outside our office and scooped him up -- that's him in the pic. We had him neutered, treated for fleas and had a broken tooth removed. Since we couldn't decide on a name, the vet's office granted him the title of Earl Gray. He's just learning and becoming comfortable enough to play and sit in our laps. No more worries about his next meal or trying to stay warm. He has a comfy little bed, a food bowl that's always full and Buffy and Cujo to keep him company when we're not here, mind you, I'm not sure he's too thrilled about that : )
It's good that Earl will live a leisurely life now, but he reminds us that there are so many others out there struggling, with winter on its way. Every group will tell you that this has been a particularly bad year for cats. Unless Toronto begins to consider improving its by-laws, the situation for cats will only worsen. I'm going to sound like Bob Barker but please remember to have your pets spayed or neutered. This will save generations from a harsh and inhumane life. And please consider adopting when looking for your next companion animal. Many shelters and small groups have animals with amazing personalities, fitting into all different types of lifestyles -- young animals, old ones, playful ones, lethargic ones, you name it!
If you want to know more about Earl or any other Project Jessie adoptee, just e-mail or call us. Thanks in advance!
