Shade_2_1024All is going as well as can be expected based on our past rescues. Donations so far will help cover much of Shade’s initial examination. We will try to schedule that today, and if not, then first thing Monday morning during business hours. After her test results come in, we will see what else needs to be addressed.

If interested in helping, please see the hidden “SAVE SHADE” page at We will keep the updates flowing to let people know where we are in costs and how soon Shade will be ready for a new home. And our deepest thanks to those who donate so far, whose names will not be made public without their permission.

Today we begin setup to bring Shade inside into a secure area. She is already showing direct interest in doing so. Challenging, considering that our girls—Cinders and Ashes—dislike us interacting with other cats. After 24 hours since Shade’s “Frontline” application against external parasites (fleas, etc.), she should be safe if housed in the spare bedroom.

That’s all for today, but thank you for stopping by and taking an interest. If so inclined, please share out this post through your own social channels.
