Not Me! Monday - If NOT ME....Who?


Visit MckMama for more NOT ME! Monday posts!

Last week, we had 2 little foster kittens at the house.
Then I got an email from the head of the rescue group.
There was a mommy cat and 5 beautiful, still-nursing kittens at the shelter
who really deserved a shot at life.


Could I pick them up and foster them? NOT ME!



Would I add 6 more animals to the zoo? No way, NOT ME!



Would I give this sweet Mama a chance to live and raise her babies? NOT ME!




Would I give this wild man a chance to have a happy, cozy home? NOT ME!
(he's just meowing, I swear!)





Who would give these sweet babies a warm, safe home until they can be adopted and bring their love and joy to another family? NOT ME?
If not me...who?

There are nowhere near enough homes for them all.
There are also not enough foster homes for them all.
Do you have room in your home and your heart to foster even one kitten?
Do you have a tiny bit of extra time to save a life?

It doesn't take much. Most rescues pay for everything....food, litter, vetting, etc. All it costs is love and a very small amount of time, picking up the kittens and then taking care of them (feeding, watering, changing litter).

Summer is "kitten season". (the kitten in that pic looks just like one of our fosters!!)

I can promise you that your local shelter, Humane Society, ASPCA, or rescue group(s) would JUMP at your offer to foster kittens right now.

Can you help save a life?
If NOT YOU...who?

I'm glad there are 'not me' people like you. I love that 'roaring' photo. I am so glad we decided to keep our little castaway too.

Have a great Monday!!

I promise, I really would...if I wasn't scared to death of cats!

I love that you take in all those kitties! And I would definitely do it too--but I'm violently allergic to cats. They are the one animal we don't have in our menagerie!

Now...don't you feel good for getting that off your chest on a Not Me Monday! :-)

It's been so long since I've been around kittens! We're doggy folks!

If we could figure out how to ship them both out to Indiana, I would take them, NOW. C & I want a cat, SO BAD! We really really really want one! And that little "roaring" one is SO precious!

Stay away from me I am the hugest sucker yet. We have a wild cat who now lives at our shabin. "It's staying around because your feeding it" -dah. Maybe she'll eat a mouse or two.
