I think sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day of work and family and volunteering that I forget how far we have come helping make progress for the cats at the shelter.
So, last night I was sitting and reading the book Rescue Ink about the group by the same name in New York City (http://www.rescueink.org/). As I sat there reading, I looked around my living room. Tommy was asleep on the pillow on the sofa. Mozart was asleep behind Tommy on the back of the sofa. Maestro was on the chair arm next to me and Tim was snoozing on the hassock by my feet. Spud was curled up (with one leg sticking out) in the corner cat cubby I have. Ivy was behind my in the dining room - licking the carpet (don't ask).
Minnie was asleep on my lap and her sisters were doing laps around the living room.
I may not be able to affect every life out there, but I have made a difference for these felines - and many more at the shelter and through fostering. It was an interesting reflection....
