My sister Caroline is walking with me, and my sister Katy is helping with the rest stops.
I iz so proud of Kitty Roo! Shii iz walking again tu raise munnees to halp prevent suicide. Depression am a serious illness and it haz serious consequences if it am nawt treated. If you am suffering, please speak up and seek halps. Kitty Roo sez:
My 6th Overnight walk – this time in Washington, DC.
This has been a very difficult year for many people, especially those already marginalized by race, economic status, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Recently I had the pleasure of meeting and hugging in person a lovely lady who I, with other online friends, was able to help through a very tough night, and someone who knew where she lived got police to send a wellness team who took her to the hospital. So glad she is still with us, and thriving.
Please support me as I honor the ones on the fringe, who are already suffering and see the future through a very dark lens, and my friends who struggle with mental illness.
Here shii am starting on wun uv her previous walks.

We have two little boys to do yet, LB and BB, and then we will be done. We are down to 9 finally, and three of them are older cats, so we have decided to stop taking in strays. We will continue to feed the ferals, but enough is enough- we have been doing this since 1985, and are simply getting to the point where it is not feasible.
I will be shutting this site down as of March 3, since payout is on the 1st of each month. I only need $150 more, to get both boys neutered and get them their shots. I will cover the rest of the shots for everyone else from now on.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your help. Without you, we could not have neutered and spayed as many as we did, and we certainly could not have found the homes we found for so many healthy cats and kittens. We hope to perhaps find homes for LB and BB yet, but if not, they will have a good home here, brothers with Tigger, Mama, Ringo, Jasmine, Missy, Bubba and Junior, with Mia and Cali watching them out the window.
Everyone has made it through the winter with flying colors, and is healthy and well, so know that every little bit that anyone gave was a heaven sent miracle for these furbabies. All we ask is just a few dollars more, to finish the job, and then we can just continue on, taking care of these babies, and let someone else take up the job.
Bless each and every one of you for what you have done so far. You are all angels in our book!
Love, MamaCat and Mo, Cali, Mia, Mama, Tigger, Ringo, Jasmine, Missy, Bubba, Junior, LB, BB and the ferals.

So, took Pippi and the three little boys to the V. E. T. today.
Pippi has an infection in her nose, probably still from that straw I pulled out this spring (!), so she got a shot of long acting antibiotic. Dr Tom said otherwise, she is doing great.
The three little boys are the kittens the wild mama brought. She has disappeared, so am raising them for her. The biggest little boy was 15 oz, the middle one was 13 oz, and the runt was 5 oz. Dr Tom gave them all worm medicine, and then checked the little one out closely. He thinks the eye is totally gone, so I should stop trying to salve it and open it, there is just nothing there and it will hopefully close up on it’s own and skin grow over it. He also got some stuff to help the diarrhea. Otherwise, they are all okay. Dr Tom says the little one is still pretty spunky, he was toddling all over the exam table, lol, and I told him that he eats really well, so now we just wait and see. Still watching to see what their names are, right now just calling them Biggie, Midling and LIttle Shit, lol.
Pippi can now play with them, like she has been begging to do since the mama left, I wouldn’t let her until we got her sneezes figured out, so now all four are happy. Pippi is just a baby herself, just a year old, so more like a big sister to them, but that is okay, someone to cuddle up to is never a problem!
Thank you again to everyone who has donated to keeping this cats healthy and well. Being able to take them in when they need it is a huge weight off our heads. There is enough in there right now to get all three little boys neutered when it is time, so thank you thank you thank you!!
The three little boys are now eating kitten chow, mixed with water. She has one very strong one, one midling one that is shy but getting better, and one poor little boy with what looks like only one eye. Am hoping to get the kittens to the vet this week to be checked out. Still no plans on how we are going to catch the mama and get her spayed and shots etc. Stay tuned!

New mama cat and three kittens
A very wild mama showed up, and I thought she might have kittens somewhere. Well, she finally brought them out so I could see them. There are three of them. They are about five weeks old right now, and do have sore eyes. I (always) have medicine available, so I caught them and cleaned them up and put ointment in their eyes, but they are going to need more medical care. The mama will also need to be caught and spayed, and the kittens will need to be spayed/neutered at some point. Any amount helps, big or little. Thank you so much- lets care for these babies!
