Cool on the PetSmart gig! What did u do? How long each day? I am sure they will be so happy to have another volunteer they can count on. But it will be hard not to want to take them all home :) We are doing good. We are both of the bounce back and move on nature. Have an offer in on a house in Bend andhope their counter offer is one we will be good with. But then we have to sell this house.
I'm glad you had such a good time at the PetSmart gig. Do you expect to do more events like that? I love that the special needs kitteh already has an adoption pending. I hope they all find forever homes. That's funny about Kibby and Chessie conducting a sniff test. Becky will give me the once over when I've been out cheating on her, too. I don't think she's jealous. She's just interested. She never has any issues with me lovin' on the goggies we meet our our travels. She often did try to insert herself between Jeannie and I when she used to come over. I think that was different because it was on our turf. She could have felt threatened because Jeannie is one of the rare dogs that could on any level compete with Becky for my affection. Good on ya for helping out the kittehs today!
BTW Kudos on volunteering at the PetSmart! I keep wanting to volunteer with a rescue organization but can never seem to find the time. Maybe when we move to Bend, get all settled, get MIL moved and settled, I can try down there. But I suppose living that close to the gkids will suck up any extra time LOL
Thanks. I didn't know "7" was the magic number LOL We are so fortunate to be able to give Shasta a home and I know that DIL, wherever she is, is happy also. She never meant for any of this to happen. It is what it is, we pick up the pieces and move forward to sunnier days.
I hope you had a good chat with Betsy. That will be fun for you to be able to love on your friend's kitty for a couple of days. I suspect the cat is already used to you so you'll get that opportunity. I have some friends who take care of cats while friends travel and they never see the cats the whole time. They hide out when humans arrive and stay hidden until they leave again. Your volunteer time at PetSmart will be rewarding and dangerous. It will likely test your resolve to not bring any more home. I often visit the NorCal Lab Rescue site and it breaks my heart. There are usually a few labs that look just like Becky that are looking for forever homes. I just can't understand how folks give them up.
I'm glad you heard from Betsy. It doesn't sound like she was having any fun but at least she's moving in the right direction. The lil' woofer and I are doing just great. Today will be a copy and paste from yesterday which suits me fine. Is it too hot to walk today or do you gals take the weekends off?
Chuckle... I knew right off what you were thinking and understood your focus was in exactly the right place. I'm sure we'll get word today. We're counting on our usual merriments here. My neighborhood has a large number of friendly dogs and we can usually count on running into one or two on our walks. That often turns into an impromptu playdate which is truly one of life's great simple pleasures. Do I see T-storms in your future this afternoon?
Concern for Betsy's well being would always be on Syl's plate whether we put it there or not. My note to her was only as a reminder for her to mention speaking to Betsy. With everything else going on she might not think to include that unless something was wrong. Betsy is probably horizontal with some fine pharmaceuticals. I hope it wasn't too uncomfortable for her and that she soon returns to play.
