In these days of tension, human beings can learn a great deal about relaxation from watching a cat, who doesn't just lie down when it is time to rest, but pours his body on the floor and rests in every nerve and muscle. - Murray Robinson
HiYa, Happy June 1 to all of you and the beginning "National Adopt a Shelter Cat" month. I know there are a few of you who are fancy, pure bred kitties. But we shelter kitties are just as wonderful. I'm a shelter cat, so was Derby. We came from the same shelter.
Matter of fact mum got a letter from them on Caturday. Reminding her to pay her dues for the next year, really just making a donation to help things along.
HAWS, I was there twice, hope I don't have to see them again. But the letter had lots of interesting facts on it.

Purrty impressive and just recently they have been caring for over 300, yes 300+, chinchilla's that were taken from a hoarder. The hoarder finally agreed to give them up after the past two months and they just started to get those furry little guys and gals adopted.
My sit-a-thon was a failure. I got furminated and mum cleaned the house good this weekend. Said it was a good thing to do on a cold and rainy day. Mum says I am so much softer now that all the extra loose furs are gone.
