Things have been weird. I've been wanting to write, but I find myself not having anything animal relevant to write about. So what am I supposed to write about? My long games of RISK with the guys. Which new Netflix shows I'm binge watching, which Netflix shows im re-binge watching? How I cleaned my carpet the other day? How I lost my restaurant jobs? It's a weird time in the world right now. The whole world. Crazy when you think about it. I wonder if this is the craziest thing that I will live through. September 11th happened when I was in seventh grade (and that didn't directly effect the entire planet). And now this, when I'm 30, going on 31 in a few weeks. And every single person reading this right now can relate.
I guess I wonder what this will do for the animal world. Right now at the shelter we have all our animals in foster, but Roscoe Rescues will be 100% foster based so not that much will change there. Speaking of which, I did want to update you guys on what we're doing. For the past couple of weeks we've been meeting using Facebook Messenger. The week before Corona broke the world we decided to split the last of our packet up between the three of us to go over and tie up loose ends, one at a time. Week 1 I took it, Week 2 Amy took it, and now Jaimie has it. We will meet again on Friday to see what she's done with it. We've given ourselves a deadline of April 17th. That's the Friday we want to put our packet in a postage envelope and get it in the mail.
Note to self: Buy postage envelope on the way home from work tomorrow. And champagne shooters.
Anyway. The crazy thing about the shelter right now though is cats. Because... there aren't any. Apparently all the local area shelters are super low on cats right now and none are coming in... What does this mean once the ban is lifted? Once trap and release programs start up again that is.
For those of you who don't know, many cities and counties etc, implement what's called a TNR program, Trap N' Release, to combat the stray cat population. Cats are caught by people involved in these programs, they're brought into shelters to spay/neuter, get important vaccinations, tattooed and sent back on their way once they've recovered for a day.
So. Are all the stray cats out there just breeding like... bunny rabbits right now?
