I was amazed and glad that I could learn via FB that our local shelter needed kitten food. Mom went out immediately and spent a bunch green papers for kitten canned food and some kitten milk to help dilute it so the babies just weaned could lap it up easier. It was a privilege, not a duty. Mom said she had a chance to play with two kitties who were in the lobby. One was a teenaged boy cat who was out, and he was playing with a wand toy on the floor all by himself. Mom felt bad so she took it up and played with him. Mom said he could leap as high up as her shoulder. But then, mom is just 5'1" inch tall. There was a ginger boy who looked a bit portly, and his purr was a TRILL! Like music. Mom said she could only pet as much as her little fingers could stretch into those cage bar squares.
Mom is headed to Charlotte for Mother's Day. How am I supposed to celebrate the day if she isn't here I ask?
Some of you know I got out yesterday afternoon. Mom panicked. She was sweeping oak pollen etc off the deck. Our deck is high up off the ground with a railing and no steps. She opened the door to come IN and I trotted straight out. Mom had picked the house phone she had been talking on to take it back in and when I got out, she dropped it to the floor and did all the wrong things. She shouted NO. I scurried to the railing and something made mom open the deck door again. I was looking over my shoulder and when she did, I ran into the house!
It would have been about impossible to find me if I had jumped the 7 feet to so down in a panic and ran into the woods. We are backed onto a forest. Here is what I would have run into.
