Still here!

Yes, I'm still alive and kicking.  I feel like I'm FINALLY starting to settle in to the new job, at least a little bit.   Whew!

Last night I trapped, so this morning I had to head out bright and early.  Look what was in my front yard when I woke up!

There were actually TWO bucks out there, moseying through, which is really unusual.  I see does a LOT, but bucks, not so much.

Then it was off to the barn to see what we'd trapped.

We trapped a total of eight cats.  Once I got them to the vet's, it turned out that one of them was ear-tipped, meaning it had already been altered.  I ran that one back to the barn to be released.  Sadly, it turned out that one of the other trapped cats had old injuries that were so severe it had to be humanely euthanized.  The other six cats were spayed and neutered and will spend the night at the vet's and then be returned tomorrow.

After my second trip to the barn, I went in to the rescue to do medications because they were short-handed today.  Then, I had to go grab foster Lucky Nicky from home and run HIM to the vet's for a second FIV test.  Negative!  Yay!

I got him back home, did vaccinations on four of the fosters, mowed the lawn, moved traps back into the shed, did some laundry, and now? I just ordered a pizza, because I am WHUPPED.

Talk to you soon!

Week 3 and into Week 4

Guys!  I'm still alive!  Still dog-paddling and keeping my head above water.

And oh my God, the families of the clients tend to bring in baked goods as a thank-you.  Today I had the best blueberry coffeecake I have ever had in my LIFE.  Who needs the right-down-the-hall cafeteria?  haha.

Sorry, I'm still so busy.  Here, have a picture of the current crop of foster kittens:

We have kittens from four different litters represented right there.  It's a Foster Camp United Nations.

Oh!  and a week ago, the area was hit by flooding, and all the permacats, foster kittens, and I had to evacuate at 4 a.m.   Fun! 

Here we are at the local fire station:

I love you guys, I miss you guys, and SOMEDAY I will have this new job under control and will be able to come round to your blogs and see what everybody's up to. 

Please be patient!
