P. O. Box 902, Hudson, New York 12534
From Joanne Bennett - 28 April 2007
Just thought I'd let you know, we're working our way slowly through "cat introductions". "Misty" became the name for Mama Cat. Since misty is a weather condition, we tried to come up with a name for the kitten that was some how weather-related. We tried stormy first but then decided of "Smokey" as she "smoked" around the house. She is unbelievably frisky and so funny. Misty is still sort of frightened of all the other cats and the new place, but little by little she's beginning to feel OK. She ate a really good breakfast for the first time today and drank lots of water. She's figured out that if she just sticks close to where I go, the other cats won't bother her. She's also got Siamese in her. When she's upset, that Siamese howl comes rolling out. Smokey has a voice, too, but not quite as demanding.
I'll keep you posted on their progress. I also wanted to let you know that I told another lady up here about your place and your web site. She just buried her 20 year old cat and is sort of depressed. I told her about the new mama cat and babies that you had in the front window. I told her to check with you all in 6 or 7 weeks to check on the adoption of a kitten. I also told her all about the place and the upstairs cats that need a home, too. Her name is Connie and she works in the restaurant at the Holiday Inn up here. Hopefully, she'll get in touch with you as she needs to have a new feline friend to help her get beyond her current grief. I feel really sorry for her. We'll all been there and it's awful at the time. It's the price you have to pay for love.
Hope you're still real busy. Just so you know, you don't have to answer this e-mail at all. I'd rather you be able to take your time helping the cats.
