weekend wrapup....

Well mom spent Friday with grandma. Grandma was in some pain most of the day, but by Saturday they seemed to have a better handle on it. Mom took Kiari over with her on Friday to snuggle with grandma. She took both Kiari and Cloud on Saturday....and they slept together in the other chair. MOL

Friday was apparently a bad day all around. The volunteers got to the shelter on Friday and found one of the kittens dead - no idea what happened. Then someone brought in another hit-by-car that had to be helped across the Bridge. And then mom found Kletus and had to call the director. Not a good day for anyone. But the director told mom the same thing that mom has told others.....yes, it is heart breaking, but when it stops affecting you, then you need to be doing something else.  We want to thank you all for your kind words.... mom knows there isn't anything she could have done, but to have him go from fine to not-fine to gone in 24 hours is just helps to know you all care and understand.

We snuggled with mom Friday night to comfort her. She got up early Saturday to help this woofie get to his forever home. As mom says, no matter the heartbreak, life continues on and there is always another animal to save. She drove this run in honor of Kletus.
 Murphy, 2 yr old cattle dog - on his way to his forever home

And then Sparty imploded Saturday afternoon and got run over by the Cornhuskers. sigh.....

So mom decided to crack open a bottle of Witches Brew

We did manage to get some good news on Sunday. Our foster Daffy/Gizmo (there was a paperwork screw up - MOL) was adopted with our friend DeLynn's foster Mozart on Saturday!!! Yeah....

Mom spent Sunday doing some cleaning. Laundry....clean sheets on the bed...and....THE DYSON MONSTER!!!  Run for your lives......

OK - too much excitement for the kittens....time for a nap:

Have a safe and Happy Halloween - we managed to avoid any costumes this year!!!
