I did lovingly clean the cat carrier (again) and the littler tray we were given but we didn't get any further in the search for our kittencat. We've visited the cat shelter 3 times in 2 weeks so we decided to have a weekend off from cat hunting.
The shelter we have been visiting is a safe haven for abandoned, unwanted and neglected cats and kittens. They never have healthy cats put to sleep. This is one of the reasons I'm so keen to find our cat there.
We will pay a £45 donation fee when we finally find our kitty. It will be have had a trip to the vet and have been neutered and microchipped. I'm learning more about the process every day.
I've been reading lots of information on the web and some of the stories break my heart.
As nice as everyone is at the rescue centre I'm determined that when we find our kitty (or it finds us!) it will never find it's self in a shelter again. I'm determined I wont fail my cat even though it will be my first.
I know, because I've never had a cat before that there will be a lot of learning to do... but then again, my cat has never had a Caroline before either. Hopefully we can learn together.
