Cat shelter volunteering ?
First of all, I didn't see a forum that my questions really fit into so I posted here. Mods please move if not correct.
Just retired today. I have many home projects to keep me busy throughout the winter, but have always thought about volunteering at the local shelter to help the cats.
Do any of you do volunteering at a shelter? Could you elaborate on your experiences?
I have 3 cats and my wife has 1 dog. The dog is very old. For the last three years we wouldn't be at all surprised if we wake up and the dog had crossed. I have three cats. All are under 6 years old. Not going to get another cat. Would like to free to travel some without putting the cats through staying at the cattery. An extended weekend or a wee trip my cats are not a big problem. We can put out the auto feeder, waterer and one of my kids or grand kids could stop in every other day so , filling the feeder, water, and do the kitty chore. My worst fear would be, "I'd want to take all the cats home." How do you coup with that? If I were to bring another cat home, it would have to be a very very very special cat.
My cats aren't spoilt, Just well loved.
