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.
