The Mission

Being an animal lover my whole life, my hope is to do my part in raising awareness on the issue of animal homelessness and to give back to my community.....

A thankful moment.......and Slick

Today as I looked out my window towards my backyard I saw two of the cats, my adopted kitties as I call them, from the cat colony merrily strolling and rubbing along the shrubs.  That sight just warmed my heart knowing that I am able to help these once homeless kitties have a safe place to roam, eat, drink and most of warm shelter.  If I could only do this for all the homeless animals which is what so many of us animal lovers dream of.  Even though this made me feel like I made a difference I quickly felt terrible for Slick.  Slick is my big, gray, once stray, cat who was the guardian and best friend to Hemingway who crossed the rainbow bring this past August 2013 Rest in Peace Hemingway ~ 8/12/13.  Slick has not been the same.  He does not eat at the regular time, he does not stay around the property and even with this terrible cold weather, he does not stay in their shelter, the kitty condo, too often.  So many people do not realize how animals feel just as we do.  Slick is still mourning over the loss of his best friend : (  I only hope he does go back to his routine by budding up with one of the others in the colony.  That would make me so very happy.  Here are two pictures of Slick - he is a beautiful, big gray cat and feel as though he fits the description of a true Russian Blue.

Slick on a very hot day in July 2012 on my retaining wall in my driveway.  I'm sure Hemingway was right near by : )

Slick on my hot tub in the winter 2009-getting some warmth from the sun. Again I'm sure Hemingway was right near by : )
