Just a note to folks out there that kitten season is here again.
So be aware, if you pick up a stray kitten, be prepared for a wait period if you plan to turn it over to an adoption service or no kill shelter.
If you pick up an adult cat (especially over 5 years of age), be prepared for a LONG wait before you can turn it over.
It's wonderful that so many of us want to rescue and help kitties, but be sure you're in the position to make the time commitment that will go along with rescuing a stray, if you don't intend to keep it. Otherwise, you can end up putting both yourself and a cat in a rather difficult situation.
