Keep your bandaids ready, in life, I say.
Unless you're ungrounded to earth and its troubles, you'll need them.
Warriors for all causes need them too.
The computer chair critics and loungers rarely need them.
First up, the woman for whom I'd gotten four females fixed, in a Tangent trailer park, had a couple of new arrivals. Got them both. Both boys, one a massive boy. I named the black tux Falcon and the big brown tabby--Atlas. They're up being fixed at whs.
|Pumba, a Corvallis boy, fixed now!|
That was yesterday when I was there with Lebanon Felines First volunteer Chelsea. She'd met me there with Remi, the calico relinquished from Mountain Shadows, so she could be tested, vaccinated and chipped before she goes into foster up in Beaverton.
|Remi, now with Felines First|
I paid up too for Juliette's chip and test. She was formerly known as Doodle, the gray tux girl from the Lebanon House colony, who went into foster after her spay with Felines First and now I hear, has an adoption interest.
Besides Pumba, being fixed today at Heartland, I took in three girls to be fixed too. There was Aphrodite, a gray tux from a Lebanon trailer park who didn't like the carrier and cried loudly as I drove the three boys to Salem this morning, then the girls clear back to Heartland. That can drive a person batty fast!
And there were two roommates cats from Signs of Victory. One had my number because she camped out in Waterloo county park for awhile and the camp host gave her a kitten born in the park. So that kitten, Laya, is getting spayed today, although now she's a likely in heat teen. And the woman's roommate's cat, MJ, also a gray tux, is getting fixed.
|Laya, formerly a Waterloo County Park kitten|
|MJ, also getting spayed today|
|Aphrodite, will be spayed today. I bet she's quiet under anesthesia.|
I thought that was it then, when Diana called to say she'd caught another big boy at the stables. So she came to Heartland with him. We named him Thor and he's rather obviously related to Hercules.
|Thor, being fixed today at Heartland while his relative, Hercules, is fixed up at whs|
|Elsie! None too happy.|
So that's the crew being fixed today. Nine of them. Good day for Linn County cats I'd say.
