Yearly Donation to the Cat Care Society

Every December, we donate some money to the Cat Care Society here in Colorado. It was 13 years that we stopped by the shelter and was introduced to a sweet little black kitten. When I entered the Kitten Room, he ran over to me begging to be picked up. As I held him, he licked my chin and purred. I fell in love with this 14-week ball of fur and within minutes, he was on his way home with us.

Little did we know that this was his plan all along. After a day or two of recovering, the real Neko appeared, but by that time we were hooked.

Now in December of every year as I make out my check, I think of the policy at the Cat Care Society. It is no-kill shelter which I am totally in favor of.  However, I think I misunderstood exactly what a "no-kill" shelter is.  It is instructions to the cats, not the humans. As long as I donate, Neko will refrain from killing us. So far, so good, but you can look in his eyes and know that he is just holding himself back.
