If wishes did come true, I would win the sweepstakes and empty the shelters of 
unwanted creatures.  I would resuce children also but they say I am too old 
(76).

more than likely all cats and most creatures small, medium and large)... 
we're all preaching to the choir...   I know all of you would feel very 
much the same as I and that I would offer similar words of condolence 
and encouragement (not that it isn't still nice and very much 
appreciated)    I've watched many of you put heroic effort into saving 
your Buddies and still others save every stray that ever meandered up to 
their door.  It's heartwarming and so encouraging to know that all of 
you are out there doing what you can for these sweet creatures( and some 
perhaps not so sweet..but in need none the less : ) ......  If more 
people were like all the caring people on this forum there would BE no 
homeless animals and shelters would merely be a very temporary stopover 
and, perhaps, a convenient place to pick up one or two extra cats if 
none happened to take up residence on your stoop that week... But..  If 
wishes were horses then beggars would ride...

thank you all...
