For the last 3 weeks, I've been stalking a preggers female at a local colony. She is *this* close to delivering kittens and with the weather change, I want her out. Last week. She doesn't seem to feel the same way.
So as I'm getting ready to leave, it comes to mind that there are many similarities between going out TNRing and a college party. And little Miss Sookie gave me plenty of time to develop this idea ;)
- I put on an outfit I can clean easily.
- Chinese food and caffeine are my best friends.
- I end up covered in substances I don't want to identify.
- The one female I want out of the group doesn't want anything to do with me. (Granted, it'd work better if I was a dude... or gay, but it's college!)
- You get checked up on by more than one cop.
- There is that odd older couple doing it in the bed of a truck,
- Adults give you weird looks and a wide berth when approaching.
- Baby momma drama ensues regardless of how far you distance yourself (did I mention it's by a trailer park?)
- You go with more clothes than you come home with. (I had an extra shirt I laid in a cubby so they'd get used to my scent)
- There is one guy surrounded by insecure girls that look to him before speaking. (yep. Actually happened tonight)
- You always have that awkward person with a camera trying to document it for prosperity.
- I spend hours there only to come home sick.
- Everyone leaves as soon as the goodies are gone.
- At the end of the night, I didn't come home with who I wanted.
- No one understands why I keep doing it!
The last one is especially true. The couple doing it in the back of the truck (yep, I was being serious.) ask me why I bothered with cats no one cared about. As I told them. I CARE. THey told me it was pointless since I wasn't going to fix the issue. I told them I would do my part and hope that someone else would follow suit. Even if I only save Sookie, I saved one. (I've trapped from this colony before, so it won't be my only, but... ) I didn't catch anyone today. I'm waiting to catch Sookie before I spook everyone. But I did get some one on one time with Gypsy, Big Daddy and two of the kittens. I'll share some of my photos :)
