Thanks everyone for being so kind in welcoming me. I volunteered at the local animal shelter's spay and neuter clinic on Sunday. I worked recovery and I'm happy and really sad to say that my wrecking yard kitties were in better shape and appear to be healthier than 70% of the domestic kitties that came in for the clinic. I have a long hair feral that lets me brush/pull out the knots in his fur on his tummy from scrub brush... I worked on at least 10 domestics that had to be shaved!
Anyway, thank you again and I'm very glad I stumbled onto this web site!
