Today in the kitchen stretched in the warm sun
A small black cat leaps over, yep, it's begun
Another little foster, black as the night
Fiesty and funny who likes to play and bite
He came from a yard thats now like a lake
A hurricane came along, for heaven's sake
And hello little Midnight,
Mommy calls you 'basement cat'
You are full of yourself, well imagine that
You purr and you play and CJ's having fun
Because he's got a younger brother
Now what have you done?
Into everything, you're in the garbage again
CK hasn't had such fun in I don't know when
And a foster comes, and a foster goes
One with golden eyes
One with pretty toes
One filled with mischief,
One pretty as you please
One a little devil
One we loved to tease
And this morning Emmy Rose was put in her carrier
Her lovely soft coat was never a barrier
A nice family saw her story, they fell in love
We have a feeling Bella was interceeding from above
And Emily Rose went to her new home,
Mommy had smiles and tears
But the'll be another, now you see, don't you ever fear
For there are so many on 'that list'
That might not another day
So another foster will come-til they go home to stay
And Emily Rose I'll miss you in my own way
You were a sister to tease
Now Middy wants to play
You were so pretty, and I know you'll be fine
With your gift of being pretty and chatty and sublime.
Midnight, you devil, did you do that?
Grabbing my tail, you're bad little cat!
But as you roll over filled with wonder and purrs
I close my eyes-another miracle has just occured
In the nick of time you were pulled from harms way
Now you're safe and warm and with us today
And a foster comes and a foster goes
One comes to stay awhile as another leaves her woes
To be petted and made much of and loved as the queen she is
With our Bella looking down on her from Rainbow Bridge
And another little foster will soon be on their way
To stay at our house for a week, month or day
Now all you little furs, and you big folks out there
This is a message from a mango cat who cares
You see, I was a foster failure, I came and I stayed
A miracle in fur, and I'm here today
Surveying my domain, my life filled with purrs
A cat who believes truly miracles occur
So won't you reach out, and open your home and heart
To a cat that's less fortunate and needing a fresh start
You may have some good fun, or a new fur to chase
Maybe she'll be pretty with haunting eyes and sweet face
Or maybe a new brofur who will keep you on your toes
Ah, cats come in, and yep cats do go
Off to new homes, as lives, yes are saved
Be a hero young feline...come on, be brave!
Tell your folks to foster, to open their hearts
Save one, post one, share one it's a start!
Today we bid hail and farewell to Emily Rose.
She went to a new home with two feline siblings, two human pawrents and a young human sister of 14. The previous Saturday, the Saturday before the 'storm' a young, thin, and funny little black cat came to stay. His name is Midnight, and he has become one of the Ridgewood clowder-for now, accepted and giving CK a run for his money.
The backyard Midnight was living in, 48 hours later, was under water in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
Trust, always, that Miracles Do Occur.
We ask, as such, to do all you can to help all in 'kill' shelters, or desperate situations, to find homes or foster homes.
With deepest gratitude, and so glad to be here,
Irish Orange Ruffy

Glad Emily Rose found a furever home!
So glad to hear that Emily Rose found a new forever home! Your Mommy is pawsome for taking in foster cats. We have never been successful at it . . . . . namely, Newman.
You see? another sweet kitty can begin a life of love & happiness. Such a lovely thing! And mom says she knows first hand that "little black cats" are pretty awesome!
