|SKYE (aka Bittens)|
Oh, my sweet girl....... I miss this kitty so much. My friend Jacqueline adopted her. She was such a cutie. She came to me at 5:30 am. on a 16 degree morning in February. She was barely surviving on a very busy, and dangerous street, Central Park. She was only 4-5 months old. I scooped her up and fell in love with her! She is now one fat and happy girl!
Another bit of luck, I got a note from a girl who I will refer to as my pasta queen, she lost her kitty a few weeks back, and has been contemplating another. She saw Sweetie from my pictures on Monday and wants to meet her! So, she will be coming over on Friday (vacation day for me, thank GOD!), and meeting her hopefully new kitty!. I had to do a bit of finagaling this morning moving Sweetie down to the dungeon while I made room for Sweetie Pie in the tiny bathroom. Hopefully this is very temporary, and all will turn out well!
Nothing new and exciting for me this morning, my paper plates were left where I placed them on the porch of the empty side of the duplex on Parsells. I never did get a call from the brothers who live on the other side. I still need to find a place to shelter these cats Ive been feeding there, since my old shelters were destroyed just a house away, where I had been feeding for two years. Sickening.
I got out to rescue Sweet Pea this morning, and a prostitute by the name of Shelly was walking by and saw me put her in the carrier, and said 'God bless you, you have been doing this for so many years! You are going to heaven for sure... " and we both teared up as I gave her a hug. I told her I was crazy, that these were the best years of my life and look at how I am spending them - that I should be partying, etc., and she said "but isn't this more fulfilling." I said you are right, and wished her a good day. Its nice to be 'touched' like that in the morning, this thankless job I have.
One final note, above is my first tomato! Anyone who gardens knows that feeling of excitement to bite into your first tomato of the season. I grew this by seed in my basement at the end of the brutal winter we had, and my painstaking care has come to fruition! Isn't she a beauty!~
I wish you all a GREAT day too!
