Quarry Caturday, A Success Story

I first saw Itty Bitty in right after the new year and it was clear this was a cat in trouble. She was tiny, scared and obviously pretty sick. At first I thought she was just a tiny old cat, but she turned out to be a under a year old.

It took me about a week to finally get close enough to grab her and get her to the vet where she spent the next 12 weeks getting over her various ailments and being nursed back to health..

I brought her home yesterday, healthy and happy.


I find myself with too many priorities and too little time and unfortunately PB will have to move down the list for at least the near future.

I'll try to post and catch up when I can, but it will be spotty for a while. And since I'd much rather spend the time I do get here on PB viewing all your wonderful photos, some things like sending out thank you's to your comments may wind up on the cutting room floor for now.

Just know that I do sincerely appreciate the comments made about my posts.



The QuarryCats are a large group of homeless cats that live in a wooded area and rock quarry near the North Fork of the Shenandoah River outside of town. I have the privilege to help care for them.

More Quarry Cat photos on PB can be seen here [photoblog.com]

The Quarry Cats now have their own website. I have set it up to accept donations via Paypal and to try to help adopt out some of the cats that are able to be adopted. Any donations are greatly appreciated and go directly to cat care.

      Thanks in the name of all quarry cats, you are doing a great job and deserve a medal. All my cats are also rescued from the streets, but there are more and more... its a never ending story. Be blessed.
