Tenth Life Cat Rescue
Looking for a cat? Try my neighbor's new rescue organization. Elizabeth has an amazing passion for cats. She helped us find Blackjack a year and a half ago, and my sister adopted Bert and Rosemary. She runs Tenth Life, which focuses mostly on injured or abused cats (hence the name). She's looking for adopters and foster families as well.
I thought about this the other night when Mike and I were coming home from the gas station, and on Pestalozzi, about four blocks east, was a gang of cats. A gang of cats. Packs of wild dogs terrify me; packs of wild cats make me slow the car down and say "awww." It was obviously a litter of older kittens--they looked like siblings, all the same size, a narrow range of coloration. It made me wish I lived on a farm and could scoop them up and take them home. But I don't think Hickory, Bleys, and Jack would think that was such a hot idea...so that then made me think about Elizabeth's organization...and then brought me here to write.
