Thursday mom and the kid went to Morgaine's to work all day.
This is Duncan getting some love.
(we tell you - mom says every time that kid sat down,
some cat was in her lap)
oooo.....scritch my ears
mom says she isn't sure who this is, but she looked up
and all she saw were feet sticking out of the box and
it made her laugh. :) these boxes are all over each
room in every building.
and then there are these cuties!!!
kittens are either put in foster care or kept in their own quarantine
until they are bigger or adopted (whichever comes first)
these guys (and their sister) were in the quarantine rooms
mom and the kid were able to see them from outside (everyone has a catio)
and both the boys stood up and were yelling. the one on the right
is SERIOUSLY crossed eyed, which adds to the cute.
Friday morning mom and the kid said goodbye to everyone and packed off to Las Vegas since their flight home on Saturday was pretty early. They were going to use the pool at the hotel but when they got there it was 108 degrees F outside!!! Mom said it was "melt your fillings" hot. So they got some dinner, stayed inside and relaxed. (the kid found the Disney channel - she was happy)
From the mom: If you ever get the chance to visit or volunteer, I truly suggest you do it. The work they do inspires me to do better for every animal out there. They have picked up the mantle of "Save Them All" and are doing what they can both at the sanctuary and through partnerships across the US to make it happen. The animals, people and location are all pretty amazing.
We do have some sad news:
Harper, the little girl that slept overnight with mom and the kid on Wednesday and Thursday crossed the Bridge on Sunday. The vets and caregivers think it may have been FIP, but considering she was FeLV positive, it is hard to say. Mom had to break it to the kid and that was pretty miserable. Harper was so very very sweet.....we know she is happy and healthy over the Bridge. And we hope that those nights that she got to spend in the hotel were wonderful for her as they were for mom and the kid. Fly Free Harper.
Yes, that was her typical expression - just added to the cute
