A Gut Check

Thank heavens for this blog to allow me to vent a little.  I've had an incredibly stressful day and I'm not sure I'm ready to publically discuss.  It's one of those days that knock you on your ass and twist your insides around a few times.  It's definitely a gut check for me. 

The weekend was terrific.  We had TWELVE adoptions over the weekend, and I'm completely at peace with the way things have turned out.  I can't take credit for any of the adoptions, as I was busy at a Baby Dedication on Saturday.  Our rescue's volunteers rocked it as always, and we were back at the shelter on Sunday rescuing more cats. 

I was hoping I could muster some hoopla for the new rescues and newly adopted cats, but my heart is elsewhere tonight and will close this post prematurely.  Many hugs and thank you's to the volunteers who have answered the phones and emails today.  One volunteer had to leave work today to pick up a sick kitten from Petsmart...something I would've normally done.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping today.

To end the post with a smile...a gift from Sherman (and last night's leftovers that I stupidly left on the counter)

stupid is in the eye of the beholder. I'm quite sure Sherman didn't think it was stupid but brilliant!!

Here is hoping that today brings you a smile.
