I have met an incredible person who runs Erin’s Midwest Animal Rescue. This is a foster based organization. She got me thinking about my three dogs that I currently own. All of them were rescued either from a friend, the street, or an animal shelter. These dogs have enhanced my life in so many ways.
As June is Adopt-A-Shelter Cat Month, I thought this presented an excellent time to talk about the two happy cats who call my house home.
To be honest, they were not shelter cats, but they were what I call "rescue cats." Rupert (yes, that’s her name, and yes, she’s a female) came to me when I rescued her from my parents barn several years ago. As my mother says, she’s the only cat that ever went to college. I hauled her back and forth between college apartments and my parent’s house for three years until I finally graduated.
