Flood of kittens

The adoption volunteer is drowning in kittens right now. Yesterday alone she had people wanting to post more than 20 kittens. I have also been inundated with emails from people asking for a foster. There are absolutely no fosters available now. They are all full up. All the boarding places are also full from what I understand.

The volunteer also had to explain that we don't run a pickup service - someone wrote in to say that she wanted us to come down and pick up the kittens but only between certain hours as she wasn't always at home.

Zj - Don't worry too much about the alter table. We have an altar that's always lit and I used to smack our cat's backside or give a strict warning whenever it looked at the altar. So far so good. It associated the altar with pain and scoldings. However, after saying all that, we still have to be vigilant in case of fire hazard.

Actually there are some sprays and the like to keep cats off surfaces. The people who make the Cat Stop and Scarecrow also have one that basically squirts air in the face of the cat when it goes onto a surface it is not welcome on.
