Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Cat Rescue Work Keeps Going


I’ve been going on and on about our move, and I do have more to say about that, but you know Mom L and Dad P did NOT stop doing what they could to help shelter cats and community cats.

We had only been in our new home about ten days and it was time for the July SNIP (Spay Neuter Impact Program) Clinic. Mom L and Dad P never hesitated—they signed up for their usual full shifts. You can learn more about SNIP if you read some of my earlier posts here and here.

There were eighty-five cats who passed through this last clinic, one was lovingly helped to The Bridge as he was very ill. A full clinic and every single human hand was needed to make this happen. At the last minute Mom L learned there were not enough Vets and it would be cancelled. And then a miracle—Miss Eileen who is a primary organizer for SNIP sent out a plea to Vets across the San Francisco Bay Area and they come through! One Vet clinic owner brought several of his vets and vet techs!! Success!!!

Thought you would enjoy seeing some of the kitties. Their eyes reveal how frightened they are but if only they understood how much this clinic will improve their quality of life.

These pretty Siamese girls came in from a community member who trapped them in her back yard.

Only one would turn around for Mom L, the other gave her backside view! They had to be transferred to individual cat traps to be admitted because the clinic does not allow cats to come through in cat carriers. The policy is in place to try to insure member of the public do not use this clinic to S/N their own pets. This clinic is solely for S/N and vaccinate community cats.

Two more “worried eyes” Mom L checked in for their SNIP experience.

Dad P and Mom L also responded with a “no problem” when the Adoption Manager from Contra Costa Humane Society asked if they could transport eight adult cats from the county animal shelter to my old home at Kitty Corner!! And we were STILL in the process of getting moved! Be sure to hover over photos for captions!

Now you all know that even though I still have lots to share about my move, my Paw It Forward work continues—let me know in comments what you have been doin’ lately to Paw It Forward.

  4. What a great program! I’m glad your mom and pop were still able to help out with it! Hope your move is going great!

  5. Lovely to see you’re as busy as ever!

  6. Wouldn’t you just love to take them all….. But they will have far better lives than they had before and some may well be adopted too, which makes either way, the time and energy of all involved, so very generously given, all very worth while.

  7. Paws up to Mom L and Dad P for their continued support of this spay/neuter program!

  9. Wow your humans are PAWSOME!! Such great work by everyone! I’m sorry to hear the loss of one cat but it’s great that so many others got help!

  10. That is a nice bunch of graduates, thanks for helping them out!

    Thank God for people like your folks. So sad that one had to be helped to the Bridge.

  12. Bless your sweet mom and sweet dad for all they do for cats. Hugs and nose kisses

  13. Well done, Mom L and Dad P!
    And well done to you too, for so generously sparing your pawrents and allowing them to desert you (temporarily) and devote time to helping these other kitties.

  14. Mom and I know it’s important during a move to try and take time out for non-moving activities. It keeps you from getting burnt out. Your parents’ were helpful and useful and kind – doing good work for the community and for the needy kitties. Mom just went to lunch with her friends! Ugh.

    Love and licks,

  15. That is so awesome that your humans continued to work so hard for community and rescue cats, even while you guys were moving. I wish more humans could be as dedicated as they are.

  16. Wow thank you vets of San Francisco! How awesome this team is to do so much good for so many community cats.

    Over here Outpawed gets our support with their amazing TNR and community cat work.

    Silver and Marjorie

  17. you parents are the best people of da world… and they have a heart for the feline friends, no matter if they have a lot of work, they are there to support our purring frineds… hugs to mom L. and dad P. and hugs to all who help with the snip-program.

  18. That siamese girl is gorgeous!

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
