Visiting Alley Cat Allies
I dropped by Alley Cat Allies today and it was great seeing new friends and all (both of the human and feral variety!).
There was sad news though - ACA started because of the dedication and hard work of a few committed individuals who were looking after the cats in an alley. Of that original colony, the last remaining cat passed away today.
The amazing thing though of course is that from a humble beginning - a national advocacy organisation was born which helps thousands of caregivers and cats. So as caregivers, don't think that you're powerless or cannot change anything. You do have the power to make a huge difference just by doing exactly what you do!
