My rescue work started with a neighbor who moved away and left behind their unsterilized male and female.
I wasn't aware the female had kittens until she weaned them and brought them to me for food. Of course, I fed them, and one by one took them to the vet to be fixed.
After that a stray showed up, and following that another stray my daughter found. I guess there was an invisible "neon sign" at my house that said "Free food here"!!
I learned about Angels of Assisi and started taking cats there to be sterilized as the vet was getting very expensive. Next I learned about Barn Cat Buddies and began to learn all about the plight of feral cats. I started working with Diane Novak, and began building my colony two by two. I gave them a safe haven. They live on 6 acres at a dead end road with half of it wooded. It is working perfectly to give them a safe place to call home.
It was then I felt I found my purpose in life. It is so rewarding!! I CAN make a difference, and so can you.
