what would saint francis do?
I did my usual Thursday in our outreach office at a church dedicated to St. Francis. Appropriately enough, the church bathroom was full of stray cats. Apparently the mommy cat and her kittens were living in the local dump. The dump employees had been feeding them, but the pile of trash they were living in was to be moved, so they had to be captured and relocated. They ended up in the church bathroom while the secretary frantically tried to re-home them. Of course all the kittens went, but not mommy. She was on the way to the pound, so I took her. I am hoping to re-home her, but I'm calling her nettipotts (or nibbles, since she eats so much). St. Francis is cool, but I'm identifying more with Noah, these days.
