Well, Sawyer was not wanted by the family that came to see him. I am sure it was because I told her he could not be declawed, and all she kept saying was 'what about the furniture', even after I gave her several alternatives to it, and told her it was barbaric. Its sad, but maybe he is better off. She seemed hesitant about Sawyer not going outside also. I know you won't all agree, but for me, cats that are let outside are the ones I eventually wind up feeding, and sheltering, and neutering. Probably not the folks that read this, but the rest of the population. Its dangerous out there for these domestic animals, and they shouldn't ever be let outside after they have lived a homeless life, for any amount of time. Think about the day you let your cat out, only to have it not return. For me, its like losing a child, you are physically ill over it, or mentally at least. I know I am.
By the way, Sawyer is disease free, and is now a she. Ha. He was completely vetted yesterday, and is ready for adoption!
The woman who rides with me, Nancy, texted me last evening, as she always does, to let me know to pick her up in the morning. When this occurs, I leave the house around 4:20, go do the first half of the route myself, and pick her up at 5 (she can't get up any sooner). Last night she said to pick her up at 4:15 but I corrected her and said that is when I would leave the house, that I would pick her up at 4:30, which would give me time to do the first two spots, and then pick her up. At 4:30, I was in front of her apartment building on the corner of East Main and Goodman, and she was not there. I honked, texted her, and waited. I finally drove off, knowing I would have to do the rest of the route, by myself, in the dark. It IS scary to think about, but I put one foot in front of the other and just continued, because the animals are all waiting for me. I depend on someone at least to ride in the back as security, or someone to help at spots where I need them to hold a board or two, even just ride along for companionship. So it was doubly hard on me this morning, but I did it, and I did it in record time. I was disappointed, but what can you do? She overslept, or something, and I am sure she felt bad. She still has not texted me.
The snow is still there, and its 8 degrees. FREEZING. But spring is just around the corner! :)
Lord grant me the strength to be content where I am. The patience to wait on Your timing. & the faith to remember that You have Your hand always on my heart.
Have a great day!
