Weekend event

 The rescue had an adoption event at the local Petsmart this weekend. Mom doesn't mind doing them, but it is tiring. A lot goes in to planning it and then getting there, setting up, talking to people then breaking down. 

It can be hard doing events at pet stores since a lot of people aren't coming in always looking to adopt. But it's good to talk to people about whatever.

Of course, things don't always go as planned. We got a few applications and did send one kitten home.

However, Friday night a long haul trucker stopped in with a small kitten he had found in Texas and had been caring for for a couple of days but realized he was in over his head. Meet Laredo.

The Sunday about an hour after we packed up, someone left a pair of kittens at the store. So they are with us too. 

It's a tough time of year for small rescues: lots of kittens and not always a lot of adoptions.

Fun event

 ROCK was invited to a yoga studio on Friday for Cats on Mats.

Mom took the Arizona kittens and Mike. Mike got found heaven hanging out with lots of people for a few hours. The yoga studio did a great job of advertising and several peopke walked in and said "it's Mike!"

The kittens werent too sure about the whole idea. They were ok in the cage after a while but freaked out when we let them loose in the yoga room. (In their defense it was the end of the event and there were kids running around)

Lots of people brought donations too.

Mom said it was a great event and she'd be happy to do it again.

Mike's professional pictures

 There is a local photographer who schedules a day to take pet pictures. Chanel has gonna a couple of times. When mom saw that David was taking pictures last weekend, she reserved a spot for Mike.

Mike did really well. The hardest part was she had to be on a box to fit in the frame so mom had to hover to keep Mike from falling off.

We think the pictures turned out great.
