Short But (VERY) Sweet!

It's going to be a Pizza night tonight at the Turner house.  I'm exhausted  and have still so much to do!

It was a BIG surprise to me today to go down the usual street to a pet store near my home and see this:
How AWESOME is that that the owner of the pet food store spent the money on a sign for the next two weeks!!!!  I went to the store to thank the owner and found this:

If you look at the poster behind the register in the right hand corner, you'll see our rescue's name!  The owner had custom posters made for his store - and they're pasted all over the place.  PLUS, he's putting "bag stuffers" to showcase the event too.

I'm getting excited about this adoption event now!!! 

We had volunteers at the shelter today and rescued a sad little guy that's only about 5 weeks old.  He came in with quite a gash in his stomach that was majorly infected.  The choice was that he'd either be rescued or the shelter would euthanize him immediately:

Guess which one we chose? :)

He's safe in a foster home who will nurse him back to health.  He's so sweet, isn't he?

We also rescued three more cats, including "Veronica":

I fell in love with Veronica while I was at the shelter yesterday.  I'm so happy that the volunteers picked her up.  According to the foster Mom, Veronica is happy and gallivanting around with the rest of the cats in the house.  Yahoo!

Short, (but very sweet) update tonight.  Time to order the pizza!
