Fabulous Friday!

It's funny what a difference one day NOT going into the shelter can make in my overall attitude. I knew that by the time I went in this afternoon, the euthanasias were over and no cages were marked for the next day. Maybe I'm on to something to help me cope with going in this summer.

I rescued a very happy boy named "Gus" this afternoon:

The foster parents had JUST adopted out their two foster kittens when I contacted them about another. (No sense in getting too comfy without foster cats, eh?) Gus is in The Land of Dirty Underwear this afternoon and waiting for transport to his foster home. Thank heaven for volunteer drivers!

I couldn't help but snap a picture of Gus nestled in the unmade bed in my son's room. He looks happy enough. :)

Don't laugh, but I also rescued a little tabby guy named "Danny":The staff had just moved him (with a bank of cages) into a cat room full of really sick cats when I arrived. It would only be a matter of days before he would get sick and die. I really shouldn't have another foster kitten, but I couldn't let him die. I just couldn't.

He has the same name as my ex-husband (puke) so I'll have to come up with something more endearing for him. But how cute is this kitten???

I'm sort of hoping he'll blend in and David won't know he's a new one.

Besides, I don't think he'll really mind:

Special note to my darling husband: "Happy Anniversary, sweetheart...thank you for your love, your support, and for making my life so beautiful every day."

What's one more foster kitten?

Congratulations on rescuing "Danny" and Gus!

Lots of purrs to them both that they find their forever homes sooner than later.

And happy anniversary! :-)

Happy Anniversary Beth!

You have a soft spot for those little brown tabbies don't you? I'm thinking your husband probably knows all your cat tricks by now and will be hip to the newcomer :-)

Happy Anniversary to you! Yep, Gus looks quite happy there and Danny is just as cute as he can be!

Happy Anniversary! Around here it's hubby that tries to keep the fosters...he keeps repeating "s/he's so cute" "what's one more" but he's not the one that empties kitty litters so...

I would name your new kitty 'David'.
"Happy Anniversary"
