Well, here we are! Winnie’s Room officially opens right now! I hope you are all patting yourselves on the back. I want to quote Virginia (Poupounette Gang) from one of her comments this week - The coming true of this dream is for us the best possible proof that the CB is an amazing place and that distance no longer matters in being part of a wonderful goal! I heartily agree. Over the winter, when everyone was contributing, and everyone’s best wishes were pouring in, I could hardly wait to get started. I couldn’t wait for all of you to watch as our group dream began to materialize. And here we are. My dad and husband finished up everything on the inside, making Winnie’s Room completely live-able. The cats have been allowed into that room to experience some of their wonderful new stuff. But today, they take up this living space permanently. "Home" just got bigger, roomier, more stimulating. I think the best way to celebrate this moment is with pictures.
Before we begin the celebration, however, let me tell you how amazed I was at the long stream of comments on yesterday’s post about the memorial bricks as a fundraising idea. Evidently, you think this IS a good idea. I was SO pleased to have your input, and what positive input it was! THANK YOU. I will continue to research, and make an announcement very soon.
Now let’s get this ribbon cut, so the kitties (and you) can begin to enjoy this new space.
Despite the celebration, things don't slow down around here. Next week, Tulip will move into the cathouse. I'll start working on the memorial bricks project. The push is on to get at least one kitty placed into a Southern home (?) And there are a couple of new canines hanging around here - their introduction next week, too.
Have a great weekend!!!
