In the year and a half since we re-located from SoCal to Houston Nikita, Daddy Kiril and I made a few attempts to reach out to local rescues and journalists, with almost no success.
Either they don't read their email or they don't take a cat blog in their midst seriously enough to explore it and respond to serious correspondence.
With Nikita gone it has become MY challenge, alongside daddy and Sneakers, to reach out and connect, as well as cover the news and write about organizations we learn about.
One of our challenges is to expand on the resource page Nikita began so long ago by adding Houston, Harris County and Texas links and blogging about them.
We let Laura Carlock, of Rescue Pet Movement, know of our first reporting in February; while she expressed thanks and an interest, there was no response to our heads-up about the March series, or a mention on their media page or blog.
