At age 78 I still do rescue work, as I have for many years. I see some heartbreaking cases, which upset me terribly, and there are times when I wish I could just stop doing this, but I find it impossible to abandon the many cats out there who so desperately need help. I too get upset when I read about sad things that happen to cats, but for every sad story there is one with a happy ending....... Rescue work is extremely stressful and this group is one of the few places where we can go for support.
