So yesterday a girlfriend calls me and say's "I have six cats that need a home". I said wow six kittens to foster is a lot, but I have bottles and formula, so I guess I could help you out."
Thay was when I learned the truth and for once in my life became speechless. My friend said " No you don't understand. Some breeder dump 6 Bengal cats at our vets office. To top it off 2 of them are pregnant." There was a long silence as I try to get myself together. I finally said " You have 6 grown Bengal? The domesticated bobcat?"
I have always wanted a Bengal, but at $1000 a kitten I could never see that happening. Now right here in front of me are 6 of them free for the taking. I know that I can't bring a full grown Bengal into this house because I think it would try to eat the other animals. Now I am feeling pissed.\
So I told my friend that I would work on finding some homes for these cats. I called the shelter that I volunteer for but they are full. Our own local shelter said that they would put the cats down. Then I contacted some local Bengal rescues. They were are full! I did finally find a rescue in Oregon, so they are thinking about taking them.
I also called my girlfriend Lyn. Lyn knows everyone, so I was hoping that she would know of someone. Lyn called me back several hours later to tell me that she would help me in the search for a new home for these cats. I told Lyn that I will damned that they will not be taken care of.
Lyn called me back a few minutes later and said that she found out who dumped the cats. There was a local breeder who lost their house, so she just dumped them. I was also told that this lady had a snow leopard. Oh I so hope that cat does not show up someone doors step.
I was so pissed off. A breeder dumped these animals. Someone who claims to love animals, someone who use to life that revolved around these cats. Why wasn't she looking for homes for these cats a long time ago? Some breeders just piss me off because they are so irresponsible!
I am off my soap box.
I did manage to get squids blankets done last night. I went and bought the material for Larry's blanket, so I will work on that today. I think I see the sun trying to peak through the clouds, but we are suppose to get rain all week.
Rusty has decided that we are going to go to this informational meeting about graduation. Rusty was looking at all the different packages. Lets see there are invitations to buy, cap and gown to rent, pictures to get ordered, then Amber wants a tassel. Rusty said screw it, Amber will only graduate once so lets splurge. What? Has he lost his mind or is he right? I am thinking that I am going to be a prune by the time my children get done sucking us dry.
On my to do list today is to find these cats a home, work on my quilts, and do a general clean up around the house.
