On July 5, Kitties Blue told you about cats living at a steel mill. You can read their post here. These kitties needed to be rescued, and I had a comment-a-thon and pledged $1 for each comment to raise funds to help with the process. A donation of $60 was made thanks to all those who commented.

Here’s an update from Barn Cat Buddies with the good news of what has occurred during the last three weeks.

Great news for the Mill kitties. Hopefully the adults are trapped & cared for soon and they find a good barn-cat home to call their own.

Yay! This is wonderful news! We were just wondering about the Mill Cats just the other day. Thanks to Barn Cat Buddies for saving those kitties!!!
Sampy sends Astrid a quadrillion kisses, and we all send lots of love!
P.S. Did Mauricio receive the e-card that Sampson sent? He is wondering because he wasn’t sure if it worked or not.

Such great news about the kittens! It sounds like some very dedicated kind hearted people have been at work!

Thank you so much for the well wishes and I am devastated not to have made it to Mau and Allie’s wedding. Truth is The Staff was flummoxed by the new Cat Scouts web site and when she went to visit Saturday morning she saw she had to contact the Denmaster! Now we know The Staff is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, so she ummed and ahhhd and then backed out slowly! Anyway I want to wish you both every happiness, lots of treats and maybe some baby mallies? 😉 ❤️❤️
