Whiny Wednesday

I think I've been burning the candle at both ends since before Christmas.  I've been waking up feeling stressed and tired and my day hasn't started yet.  Today was another pick up/drop off sort of day, but I was still gone all day! 

To those of you who work 8 hour days, you might say "Quit yer whinin',Beth".  But after the long rescue days, I also have long evenings filled with phone calls, emails, and site updates.  Since I've been typing this blog post, I've answered the phone 4 times.  Crazy stuff!  Our volunteers have been completely wonderful and going above and beyond the call of duty to help me.  I can't imagine what it would be like if I didn't have the kind of help that I have. 

One of our volunteers has pneumonia and went to the shelter for me today  (Thank you, Shelley!) to save "Peggy":
Peggy was considered "Special Needs" as she is missing her left rear foot.  I was afraid because of this disability the city would see fit to euthanize her.  She is absolutely darling and was an instant success after rescue today:
I knew this month would be crazy with going into two NEW Petsmart stores for the same month.  But I didn't bet on being sick.  I'm on my 2nd round of antibiotics and now I've got a swollen right eye - (think Popeye) and am on antibiotic drops for that.  Good Grief.  Even my haircut and colour today didn't improve my appearance.  :)

Anyhoooo....don't worry about me.  (I'm FINE, Mom!)  It's rescue business as usual.  Just moving a little slower and going to bed a little earlier.  I really love my life...really!!!

Another rescue tomorrow....

Hope you get better soon Beth! Kudos to you and Peggy's chauffer, it's nice to see a creature with a disability get a second chance and an adult cat at that!

I ditto what Caroline said, so nice to see a kitty with special needs and an adult to boot get another chance. Peggy is just beautiful. My sister has a "three leggard" and he does just fine. Hope you feel better soon.
