As you might expect, this year's "kitten season" has seen a record number of street kittens finding their way to Blistered Whiskers.
Currently we have over 100 felines at our shelter (not counting those with our dedicated foster care team). Many of these animals have been abandoned by their owners as the economy has created a whole new generation of "foreclosure felines".
The fact is, that when you have that many animals in one room - if one comes in that's sick, they all get sick. That being said, BWI medical supplies have been dangerously depleted...especially antibiotics and vaccines.
We are able to obtain lower cost medicines in Mexico, so despite the "swine flue blues" and "narco violence" a brave team of BWI volunteers is planning a trip south of the border to replenish Rx supplies.
Hopefully you will be able to help with a financial donation. The economy has hit everyone, even these kitties. If you have $5, anything, please go to our site and donate! Every little bit helps.
Last Fall many of you contributed to our first ever fund drive. And yes we succeeded in reaching our goal of "$1000 in One Week!" Thank you all so much. This time we have two weeks to get ready for the next expedition. Let's make it "Two Grand in Two Weeks!"
Anyway, we at Blistered Whiskers appreciate all of you for being part of our extended family and for helping us minister to these defenseless critters.
