The shelters were closed today due to Canadian "Easter Monday". It was nice to take a short breather as it was a hugely busy adoption weekend for us.
Our house was shown at 11:30 this morning and the same family came back today at 3:30 to see the house again! It's always a good sign and I'm hopeful the end to this madness will come a little earlier than I expected. The cats were understandably ticked at me loading them in carriers TWICE in one day! I have the scratches to prove it. :(
I found a cute picture of our cat "Willy" who seem delighted with the moving of our furniture "post-staging" because it produced a TON of lost cat toys from under the couches:
This morning my own cats seemed extra excited to be out in our cat enclosure. They slithered low to the ground like they were stalking something. I bolted to the window to make sure it wasn't another wayward chipmunk in the wrong place at the wrong time. But I didn't find a chipmunk. I found we have a NEW neighbour that I hadn't seen yet:
My son said, "OH? You didn't know the new neighbours have cats? I heard the Mom screaming at the kids, "DON'T LET THE CATS OUT, DAMMIT!'
I'm sort of sorry that I'm moving now. We finally got a neighbour that likes cats!
Tomorrow should be a very busy rescue day. Lots going on. I'm grateful I had the presence of mind to do the grocery shopping this morning.
Maybe there's time for a 30 minute siesta?? Naaaaaaaw....
