Lorrie, that is something I lay awake at night worrying about myself...not only 
my own cats, but the ferals I have TNR'd and care for....in July I was 
hospitalized for almost three weeks....thank goodness my husband was able to 
care for them (well, as much as he could)....but I hesitate to do any more 
rescue work because I am not a spring chicken any more...and who will take them 
if and when I die?  Some of my cats came from very bad places and have trust 
issues....most are not very friendly to strangers....and I don't make the kind 
of money where I can provide a lot even IF I could find someone I could 
trust...I'm not sure there is a perfect solution....we just do the best we can.
