Well, for the fourth or more week in a row, adoptions are still way down. We had one adoption each the last two weekends (Lucy Liu the first weekend and Gordon this past weekend). But we've had many drop-offs in the past week, including the litter of five very young kittens (3.5 weeks old) that had only been given water in an almost 24-hour period before they came to us.
So with more than 70 young kittens in our care and a lot of adult cats as well, we've had to officially close intake.
Our emergency medical care has been very high this year and we've had so many emergent cases come to us. This past weekend, Montgomery Jack spent a good part of his weekend at the regular vet on Saturday and then urgent care - Veterinary Speciality Hospital on Sunday. Jack has a prolapsed rectum, but after medical treatment he is eating and eliminating well and his prognosis is good.
So it's back to the drawing board to think of some fundraisers. Everything always works out, it just sometimes take a little longer to go from "ack...what" mode to "ahhhh...it's ok" mode. :-)
