5/14/15 – PART I – Yesterday was quite the heart tugging, heart breaking day. It started with authorizing 8 cats from various sources to be spayed/neutered, etc. and then I got a 911 during a meeting. A beautiful Tuxedo cat named Roxie was once again going to be thrown outside. We reported on Roxie a couple of weeks ago. She is the female whose family was evicted and she was left behind — 4 paws declawed!!! There wasn’t any spaces open amongst some of the fosters typically used, so Roxie was put into a home with an elderly lady without any other animals who likes to foster. Yesterday, her family contacted Jo A (the rescuer) and said they were putting Roxie outside unless she was picked up immediately. Thankfully, our Board member and friend, Angela, took her in. This morning she is doing great and all of her fear has seemed to go away. Because this little one has gone through so much, we are giving her time to decompress and get used to the good life with Angela and her fur team. She will be available for adoption real soon and we will continue to report on her progress.
