For the fundraiser, someone commented on how to get donations for the raffles to me. Well, if you would like to message me at firstname.lastname@example.org, we can figure that out! Again, we are looking for gifts to donate with a max amount of $25. Gifts in the form of anything you might like to win yourself. (i.e., wine!, gift certificates! there are a million things I would love to win! :) ) Thank you very much! Also I added the tax exempt language at the bottom of the flier above.
I think I saw a rabid raccoon this morning. The poor thing. I heard some rustling next to one of my shelters where I feed around 5 or 6 each day, and suspected a skunk. Instead, I looked over and scared the bejesus out of this raccoon. Small. He looked into my eyes as he fell over on his back. At first I just thought he was frightened, which I am sure he was, but as he got up, he stumbled and fell nearly a dozen times as he tried to get away from me. He hissed first though. I felt so bad for him. If I had a gun, and a silencer on it, I probably would have shot the poor thing. I also thought of calling 911 to report it, but then thought I would be exposing my shelter, and once again, the City would remove it.
There is a woman who reads this blog and we've become 'never met' friends. She wrote me this the yesterday, and it made me feel good. Not much does these days, so I welcomed it, and share it with you. :)
"I was bummed to read about your knee, and so happy to see you had some helpers! It's busy work season for me, but maybe one day I can learn your route and help. I'm in Virginia this week, and one of the customers is big with helping the kitties! He said a 'neuter scooter' comes once a month and takes cares of fixing the kitties! He was showing pictures of some of the kitties he watches over. thought you'd like that story!"
Neuter Scooter. How about that!

"God didn't promise days
without pain, laughter
without sorrow, or sun
without rain, but He did
promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears and
light for the way. If God
brings you to it, He will bring
you through it."
