Keeping Me Lifted

Some days I feel like somebody is holding me up under my arms and keeping me going. The emails that have come in since my last blog post have made me laugh and they've made me cry with joy. It's given me reason to think about rescue in a way that I hadn't considered for a long time. I've had a "all things are possible" attitude today, thanks to those comments and emails.

Remember "Prissy" the little waif who was scheduled for euthanasia at the shelter?

Prissy is now "Ilona" and more than 4 pounds of sweetness!  Her foster Mom has decided to give her a forever home:

I never get tired of pictures like this. :)   It just doesn't get any better than this! 

I can't believe the number of emails I received from people asking me what the "ugly cat bed" I bought looked like.   For your amusement:

This is Phoebe.  Every multi-cat home has a Diva, and Phoebe is our resident dilute calico diva.  She sat in that ugly cat bed taking swipes at anybody who tried to oust her.  Hard to believe that this cat bed was originally $52.99.  I paid $25.00, which was STILL $20.00 too much!   I give it 48 hours before somebody pee's in it. 

Thank you for keeping me lifted in your thoughts and emails.  You have no idea how much it means to me.

That pic of Ilona made my day. :-)

Maybe you need a betting pool re. the length of time before someone pees in the "ugly" cat bed. Ha.

That picture of Ilona is just wonderful :D and the cat bed isn't half as ugly as I thought it would be...I have seen (and owned, to my shame) far, far uglier ones... :-)

Cindy, (and the guys)

How funny that you said " I give it 48 hours before somebody pee's in it. " That's exactly what I think when I bring such things home. I have a bed almost exactly like that but it has leopard print. And a couple of my cats DO pee in it.

Aww! Ilona is such a doll :) I love those open-belly stretch-out sleeps! The progress makes me think of my Bella Mae. It's very fulfilling to see them flourish and become healthy and happy :)
Thankfully the cat beds I have remain pee-free (cross fingers)
