Earlier this week I was trying to get my act together and find something meaningful to do other than working on the house….and watching all 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls. I am looking for a couple places to volunteer some time while I am here in Mason City and sent a volunteer application to the Humane Society here. While I have not heard back from them yet I do think that yesterday they sent an ambassador to me….in the shape of a black and white kitty!
I was in the kitchen on the phone with my BFF Ann and I heard a noise outside—lo and behold there was this kitty wandering around. I opened the door and it shot inside and was just so skinny and pathetic but friendly—so I got some leftover shredded chicken and put it in a bowl and it wolfed it down like it had not eaten in weeks. Poor thing. Took it back outside and she just loved on me and purred and got on my lap and licked me ( sounds like Holly) and just was so happy! So later I spent some time on the deck reading with a cat on my lap happily purring and when Chris came home that is how he found me. Surprisingly enough he agreed that we couldnt’ let it starve and told me that I needed to go get some food for it!!! However…it is very VOCAL!
We have had the AC turned off since it has been so cool and with our newly installed ceiling fans we haven’t needed them but last night we closed up and turned it on because we had a concert outside our window…..meow, meow, meow…. Very loud! But no sign of her this morning so maybe she moved on—-hopefully she found her way home and will be happy but it was nice to have a kitty around again. I miss my Buddy and Holly but they are so happy with “Grandpa Skip” and rule the house there and it is hard to think of moving them a couple more times when we are not sure of what our timetable is and it would definitely be easier to sell a house without pets….so we will see!!! Anyway, had to share my ambassador story!!!
