I went out this morning battening hatches on my shelters, all what - 15 or 16 now? Good Gravy. I am insane. I put a board here, a board there, weighed it down with rocks and cement blocks. We are anticipating a snowstorm coming from the South, with up to 10 inches of snow. Joy. So, tomorrow and Thursday morning doesn't look or sound too good. Get the shovel out. Dig dig dig. Those poor babies with their six inch legs...
Lacey was delivered to her new home yesterday, and I don't think her new brother Lurch was too happy about it. Lurch is a rather aggressive boy, sweet, but he is the man of the house and I am sure he is going to make that apparent to his new sister at some point. Fingers crossed this works out. Lacey is so sweet and dainty. She is spending a few days in her own bedroom, and will be slowly introduced to Lurch. uggh.
Jelly, name is being kept (hurray), is at her new home, slowly adjusting. Apparently there was a hiss or growl toward her parents, and I am not 100% sure why that happened, will hopefully find that out today, but I am sure, in time, this will change, and Jelly is going to make the best kitty. She is hiding most of the time from what I understand, but again, this will change. Fingers crossed everyone!
Someone asked about Wally and Miss B. Let me give you an update.
|Larry the Cat|
I have not seen Wally in close to a year now. I had to 'unfriend' him after he had left the cat Larry that he adopted from me, alone for several days in his apartment. That was kind of the icing on the cake for me since several other things have happened over the years that I was not happy about. I went over and got the cat - I had a key to his apartment - and my niece adopted him. I still feel bad that I did that, not the part about taking the cat - the part about ending our friendship. It was pretty one -sided anyways. I helped him out with all sorts of things. Donations from friends, gifts for special occasions and holidays from me, home cooked meals, cleaned for him occasionally, brought over a pot filled with herbs for the summer for his porch, etc. Just about everything given to him disappeared so it was a very frustrating situation. In the end, after I could not get in touch with him, and finally did, and he told me he hadn't been home, and didn't know when he would, and wouldn't explain himself to me, went over and got the cat and never talked to him again.

Thats the scoop, have a great day!
“Each smallest act of kindness, reverberates across great distances and spans of time --affecting lives unknown to the one who’s generous spirit, was the source of this good echo. Because kindness is passed on and grows each time it’s passed until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage, years later, and far away. Likewise, each small meanness, each expression of hatred, each act of evil.”
