It never gets any easier






Repairs at my shelter are progressing nicely, although the weather is changeable. There’s a new concrete slab under the eaves and you can see my kitties inspecting it here. Support columns are finished and the most important part of the roof repair is scheduled for next weekend. I guess we’ll all breathe easier once it’s done.

We still don’t know exactly how badly the roof is damaged. It might be necessary to cover it with a tarpaulin, so that repairs can continue, even when it’s raining. All of the news and photos will be posted on my betterplace.org project.

However, new problems arise when and where they are least expected. The shelter’s toilet is not connected to a sewage system, everything just empties into a hole. And that hole is full right now. As there is a concrete slab over the septic hole, it cannot be emptied and no matter how hard we try to solve that problem, it seems we've pretty much hit a wall. The only solution is to install a new septic tank, but with funding for the shelter falling short…

Does it ever end?
