In a much earlier post I mentioned about having a house guest ( Otto the cat). well, Otto is now back with his owner, however, my oldest daughter rescued several cats from her neighborhood about a month ago. Not too long ago one of her neighbors asked her if she owned the cats hanging around her house. She told him that no they weren't hers, but she was feeding them and had them fixed and vaccinated.
He told her that since they weren't hers that he was going to trap them and take them to the county and have them put to sleep. And when the neighbor told her what he was going to do, she just couldn't let that happen. She brought in two of the strays inside her house and asked if she could bring one out here. Of course I said yes. So now we have another cat. Introducing Smudge settling in like she has been here forever.
One more thing I would like to mention. Over the weekend I have become more involved in speaking up against horse slaughter. I know, not a very good way to end a post. But it is something that I believe shouldn't happen. The horse is a majestic animal that should not be slaughtered. The horrors they go through is downright stomach turning. I send in donations to help get horses out of kill pens.
If you would like more information how to help horses and donkeys not go to slaughter, please let me know. There are several organizations that I can refer you to.
