Feral

Turns out the little skinny stray kitty I brought in the house the other day isn’t the only stray we have.  Turns out there is another kitty that is lurking in the tree line watching us.  This one looks older and healthier.  It is also pretty wild and will not let us near it.  We will continue to put out extra food and water for it.

Stray

We had a stray cat show  up at our house.  We had seen her lurking in the tree line and knew she had been eating the food we left out for our Lily kitty.  Well, today she came to me.   Lord, be still my aching heart.  She is so emaciated I couldn’t just leave her.

I am hoping to find a nice home for her…..that isn’t mine 😉

No Name Yet

Saturday we went and picked up our newest foster.  She was found abandoned with her seven puppies.  Her pups are old enough that they went to separate foster homes.  As of yet, we are still trying to come up with a good name for her.

She is such a pretty girl, can’t believe she hasn’t been snatched up yet.

This is Wayne

Our newest foster dog’s name is Wayne.  I’m not sure who comes up with these names, but Wayne is just a weird dog’s name.  The vet thinks he is about 10 years old and he has some health and mental issues.  His health issues I mentioned in a previous post.  As for the mental issues, he has separation anxiety.  I have had no experience with a dog that didn’t behave well when left alone.  However, Wayne is learning how to enjoy being an inside dog and accept love and affection.

Our Newest Foster

I was contacted yesterday by The Animal Rescue Alliance, (T.A.R.A), in reference to them desperately needing someone to foster an elderly dog. We have fostered for them a couple of times in the past, and let’s just say, after reading this dogs story I immediately stepped up.  This old boy was found tied to a fence by Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City.  After trying to get animal control to pick up the dog…which obviously didn’t happen, a T.A.R.A volunteer took him in.

This dog just breaks my heart!  He is only about 40 pounds and has a severe ear and eye infection.  Thankfully he is heartworm negative!  I will probably be picking him up this evening.  He doesn’t have a name yet, so stay tuned for updates.

Shameless Beggar

I think Lulu had lots of people food in her previous life.  She is trying to tell me that she would definitely enjoy what I am having for dinner.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
