HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
“Friday’s child is loving and giving.” Children born on a Friday are thought to be affable, loving, and generous. I think this can also mean that any abandoned kitten that is trapped on Friday is also loving and giving, don’t ya think that outta be right too?
my our nonprofit that Mom L and Dad P manage, Delta View Cats, has incredible volunteers. We do lots of things to try and help humanely manage our city of Pittsburg’s overpopulation of abandoned community cats. We feed about fifty kitties all around our marina and waterfront park. Now this park had a colon of cats numbering about thirty-five in 2017. We have worked to get friendly kitties adopted and now the colony stabilized in 2019 to twelve adult cats. Since 2017 to Spring 2021, no cats nor kittens were abandoned at this park. It was a common dumping ground for over ten years, since about 2005.
Unfortunately, from Spring of 2021 to now, October, 2022, Delta View Cats volunteer colony caretakers/feeders have found forty dumped kittens at this park!!
We feed once a day at this park and our Friday colony caretakers went early before feeding time, intent on trapping this little kitten that was sighted about eight days before. They found she was sleeping in one of our shelters and plotted to catch her on her exit in the early morning using a fishing net!! SUCCESS!!!! Miss Elaine and Mr. Bobby feed on Friday’s so they named this little three pound two ounce girl “Friday”!!
She was skinny and her long furrs were matted and dirty. And boy was she hissy at first. She tried to climb outta her cage and she huddled in a corner.
She met a buddy at station three feeder, Hercules, and he must’a showed her how to survive in this park with raccoons, owls and unkind loose dogs. Miss Elaine and Mr Bobby volunteered to foster little Friday, whom they named after the day of the week that they always feed and it is also the day they were finally successful in snagging her!! YAY FOR FRIDAY!!
She got over being hissy really quickly and Mom L just had to go visit and hold her.
You can see her furrs are not groomed and she has had a weepy eye so she is getting treated with eye drops our retired DVM pal Doc Josie ordered. And she loves to be brushed and groomed and takes her eye med just fine. She is getting dewormed and will soon be weighing in at four pounds!!! WOO HOO!!!
Isn’t she just gorgeous!! Did you notice her incredible white LONG whiskers!
Friday will soon be ready for adoption so please will all my pals share her story on your own social media, ESPECIALLY if you have family and friends living in the San Francisco bay area. If anyone is interested, you can contact Mom L at this email address: infopdvc at gmail dot com.
