All week I’ve been distributing the huge bales of straw that I picked up as a donation earlier this summer.
This straw will be used as insulation in outdoor cat houses to help keep the cats warm.
I should deliver flowers more often. It made my catty wagon so pretty!
While I was there Billy from Chicago TNR’s feral cat colony came out to see what was going on.
I also met one of her current foster kittens named Trey, rescued from the streets in Englewood.
Trey will be available for adoption soon when he’s old enough and fully vetted. He is friendly and really liked George.
I couldn’t resist holding him as well.
I love visiting with my animal rescue friends because their support rejuvenates me and keeps me keeping on.
At this point the straw is almost all gone, but it’s almost that time of year where you can find it everywhere, even in the city. Once October hits, bales of straw are sold as Halloween decorations in pumpkin lots, Home Depots, and various grocery stores.
