I can't help myself. I have a soft spot for all animals. Even the pesky skunks and racoons that show up on my porch, but don't gasp, I DO NOT feed them. Not intentionally anyway. And I only observe from the living room window. My husband is a big cat lover and we have 4 kitties. Two that make their homes inside (Milo and Elwood) and two that make their homes outside and if on a rare occassion I forget to pick up the outside food in the evening, once in a while we will get a pesky visitor.
Around the middle of June and much to my chagrin a stray kitty showed up and naturally I fed her. I think she was a "foreclosure" kitty. Fast forward two weeks. 4th of July to be exact, she blessed us (tongue in cheek) with 3 kittens. Of course I hovered over them and cuddled them. I even lost sleep over them when Momma moved them and they were no where to be found for two days, but the time has come that I MUST find them some new parents. I would love to keep them all but that is not possible and practical. It has been hard placing them and so far we have had no success and I cannot stand the thought of taking them to the shelter. All of the other rescue places are jammed packed with cats and kittens. Please say a prayer that these babies will have new parents soon.
Do you ever get to a point that things just seem dull and when someone asks you what have you been up to and you just stop and think and ask yourself...what have I been up to? Well that is me these last few weeks. Don't get me wrong. Life has not been boring but it has not been exciting either. I am as busy as I have ever been. Maybe too busy and I am not stopping long enough to take it all in. Too much work and long days of working non-stop has made for a dull girlie.
Soon, I will post some pictures and show you what I have been up to preparing for all of my Holiday Craft Faires that are coming my way. I will be putting on some finishing touches to my "Victorian" Christmas stockings but I am still hunting for the perfect ribbon. I haven't made them for about 6 years and my Mom urged me to make them again. They were quite popular.
Hugs and Blessings and much love my friends, Sue
