Yes, I am.  When I originally came to this list, it was because I had a
kitten who tested "light pos" (I have since learned there is no such thing)
and SR was giving me no support whatsoever so I came here for support
instead.   Everyone here wanted to know who the rescue was but I didn't tell
them because I think telling names of rescues is tacky.  Everyone here was
also incredibly supportive when the horror that was visited on myself and my
personal and rescued cats came.  I have been really glad to have this list
over the years.  I love doing rescue but I've learned that other rescuers
tend to be cutthroat and just plain mean to other people.  I think if we
were all nicer to other people and to animals this world would be a much
better place.
