PF, I don't know that I could handle being on benadryl until mid-late July. But I thank you for your offer from the bottom of my heart. She is a very special kitty-cat and I can only hope that the person who adopts her will realize that and treasure her. I've done my good deed for cats in 2012--2011 was to pick up that 3-week old kitten off the middle of the road and take it to kitten rescue--2010 was to trap a feral cat and get it sterilized. Can I sign off now as a person who helps cats? Have I done enough for stray cats? And, what is it about the City property that attracts them--could it be the "SUCKER" tattoo on my forehead?
Yes, you have a big stencil on your forehead that says,"cats stay away" so they are attracted to you!

It's okay, I really didn't think we could make it work having to wait so long anyway. You would have ended up keeping her if you had to keep her for several months.

That's so kind of you, CWS. You have more than given back! Animal lovers are a special breed.

Oh--PF, I would've made it happen! I have no problem driving Miss Jeanne (the Volvo) on road trips! I just might have run out of Benadryl. Now, how to get rid of the tattoo...

Yeah-yeah. I just hate to see companion animals "thrown away" and couldn't let "fate" take it's course. A few years ago, there was a stray cat on the property. I tried to trap it, could not. In the spring, when I went to mow the lawn, the poor thing was dead under my lawn tractor...had I tried harder to trap / entice it...

The tattoo will come off with a bit of water, the Mothership doesn't believe in permanent defacement.

His new family had him neutered, named him Sylvester, and send me periodic photos and updates. He weighed 5 lb when I found him, and how he's up to a hefty 10 lb. So glad I grabbed him.

I might have told this story before but the cat in my profile picture, my Chester Bug AKA Bug-a-mus, wasn't actually from a shelter but came to me after a nearby home fire. I was out in the yard which is a field when he walked right up to me, singed whiskers, spark Burns on his Kitty face, raised up to stand on his hind legs and stretched those Kitty arm paws up, meowed and stole my heart. I was going to take him to the vet on Monday and get his shots & have him cleaned up & ready for his owners to come & claim him, or give him up because I had more animals than I could afford to care for at the time, but by the time Monday rolled around (it was a weekend), I was in Kitty love. I never kept him inside in case his owners returned. I just couldn't believe someone wouldn't be looking for such a special animal. They never came back and I am so glad. He is the most humble, loyal and loving cat I have ever seen with not one bad habit. His favorite thing is to lay like a baby in my arms on his back snuggling. His fur has soaked up many tears from me. This cat was not Rescued. I was Rescued when he came into my life. Now he loves our little Chihuahua Cocoa like she was his daughter - snuggles her and gives her his Kitty style bath. I love this cat dearly . Irreplaceable. I will need therapy when he draws his last breath.

He now resides inside due to tendencies for urinary tract infection & Prescription cat food and needing lots of snuggle time myself.
