Before I post about today’s “subject”, I want to share a couple of other things with you. The comments that came in about Jane and about Tulip made me feel SO connected to you. I know how much you guys care when I’ve got a sick or dying one. You always send your supportive comments and emails and it is such a blessing. In the last two days, as I’ve posted the wonderful news about Jane and about Tulip, your comments have reminded me yet again of what amazing, sincere, genuine CARING people you are. I started copying and pasting the comments I wanted to mention in this post, and I got tickled because I scrolled back up and I had copied nearly every comment that had come in. There were comments about tears of joy and relief and happy dances. You guys told me that I had made your day with the news. You have to REALLY care to write the things you did. And you couldn’t have done that unless it REALLY mattered to you. You never cease to amaze me. I’m SO glad you are on this journey with me.
Next, I want to mention some gifts that have arrived here for the dogs and cats of the daily dose. I will start with Mindy Slimmer. You all know her. She recently sent a package to our “shelter” dogs, a package to the Winnie’s Wish kitties, and had a prize she won in a contest sent to us.
Mindy used to hail from the blog The Slimmer Pugs. But she has a new blog now - Pugs and Purrs. She isn’t posting to her blog right now because of her summer college load, but it’s worth a trip over just to see how great this new blog looks. Mindy is a huge supporter of my work. Besides all of the many gifts she has sent, not to mention donations, she also adopted THREE Winnie’s Wish kitties. That’s part of the reason she had to construct a new blogsite - there are now as many kitties in the household as there are pugs (smile). So pop over and take a gander for now. She’ll be back with more regular posts once she gets through this summer semester.
Thanks for everything Mindy!
I’m getting closer to the subject of today’s post. This next gift I received is directly related to what I plan to talk about today - the new group of cat and kittens. Virginia and her Poupounette Gang sent a care package to help out with the new mouths to feed. Virginia is also a long-time supporter, and she has done this sort of thing for me before.
Thank you Virginia!
I sure didn’t think I would be doing this particular post quite this soon. But I have a milestone to announce. Remember my new Feral Five? Isis the calico mom. Juice and Sunshine the brothers from Florida. Mickey and Maverick the kittens of Isis. All feral, right? Well, Mickey is now one hundred percent tame. And not just that. He loves to be petted and held. He loves to play. He loves ALL of our adult cats and even the dogs. This kitten is ready. He is ready for his very own home.
Help me get the word out, friends. There’s a new Winnie’s Wisher ready to go.
Have a great weekend. See you next week.
