I took some photos of Miranda/Smudgy this morning, but she is so active, and wriggly, that it was hard to get a decent one.  We were playing 'dress up' on the bed.  She does love to play!  She will meet her potential new family tomorrow morning.  WISH US LUCK!  :)

After witnessing the baby kittens on Bay and Miller Streets yesterday, this scene weighed heavily on my mind the entire day, up until bedtime, and when I woke this morning.  I felt compelled to go there by myself this morning to place a tote shelter under this bush where the food and water was left.  Two baby kittens watched me approach and then went under the small garage door opening.  One was pure red, one was  black.  It was confirmed by my friend that there are three adults, all female, and 3-4 kittens.  I am begging someone to step up to help, whether it be helping to TNR the adults, or fostering the babies.  I think they are just young enough that they won't turn feral, but close to that gap.

Update since paragraph above was written.  (see?  things change in an instant in life!)  There is now someone from the largest rescue group in western New York, Habitat for Cats, trapping at this place for the adults.  I am SO thankful for their help after I reached out to them yesterday.  I know this will not be an easy task, nor will it happen in a day, but for each cat we spay/neuter, hundreds more will not be born.

I came  upon these old photos of me - starting to fade over the years - wanted to get them digitalized (if that is even the right word - I am completely dumb when it comes to this computer stuff) anyway, and thought I would share.  Wasn't I so angelic...  back then.  HA!

4 years old?

6 years old?

Have a GREAT day!

To believe is to know that every day
is a new beginning.
It is to trust that miracles happen,
and dreams really do come true.
To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds,
To know the wonder of a stardust sky
and the wisdom of the man in the moon.
To believe is to know the value of a nurturing heart,
The innocence of a child's eyes
and the beauty of an aging hand,
for it is through their teachings we learn to love.
To believe is to find the strength
and courage that lies within us.
When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again.
To believe is to know we are not alone,
That life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.
To believe is to know that wonderful surprises
are just waiting to happen,
And all our hopes and dreams are within reach.
If only we believe.
