It’s been fairly quiet around here the last few weeks. Of course, for house cats, that is an ideal situation. While the temperatures have soared outside, reaching 100 degrees, or close to it, on most days, the nine of us have snoozed comfortably in our cool, climate-controlled enclave.
There have been just a few things of interest around here lately to share. Our local Humane Shelter, the Elmore County Humane Society, put out the word that they were running really low on dry dog food. Well, since He and She are at capacity and cannot lighten the burden by adopting a dog from the shelter, they did what they could by donating some food. Here’s our little Jetta loaded down with kibble. You may not be able to tell, but they snuck a bag or two of kitty food in as well.
When they delivered the food to the shelter, they found that the supply had gotten as low as three bags before the call for help went out. Thankfully, the community has responded and their needs are being met. He and She have made donations in the past, but plan to do so on a more regular basis in the future. This is a great way to help out homeless animals in need if you aren’t able to bring one home with you.
Here’s another interesting thing we wanted to share. While He and She are out on the Harley Davidson, they see many unique sights. Usually, they see several other people out enjoying toys of their own. This past weekend, they spotted this:
Bamajama says it is a Morgan Roadster, and they all thought it was pretty cool.
Here’s another toy the owners decided to take out for a spin!
And, lastly, this may not be the most interesting picture, ever, but we wanted to share with you the trick we are playing. Almost every day when She comes home, She finds some different item on the rug in the bathroom. One day, it was a pair of flip flops from the closet laid atop the hand towel which was pulled down from the rack and neatly folded. Sometimes it will be a piece of jewelry we’ve purloined from the dresser, or a stray sock from the laundry room. We are trying to see if She can guess what kind of message we are trying to send her.
Lately She has been making a strong effort to be more physically fit, so the tennis shoes have gotten quite a work out. We acknowledge that. However, we added the fuzzy slipper because we don’t want her to forget to put her feet up and relax with a kitty in her lap now then, either!
I know the shelter was happy to receive the gifts of food. That is a way to help when you can’t bring home another animal that I haven’t thought of. Thanks for the idea.
The “toys” that you saw during your ride are interesting. I have never seen anything like that before. I wonder how it is to ride that tri-bike. I would like to see it in person.
The messages that the kitties are sending are well planned. But they may need to give some thought to not leaving messages with jewelry in them…you may miss the whole point if you can’t find your earring when you need it. 🙂
Very thoughtful fe-lions to leave you such important messages.
The word that comes to mind is “sweet.”
The car & bike – seweeeeet!! That’s a bike I’m willing to show DH. I’m safe with the car, too.
The little gifts & reminders on the rug – awwwww sweet!
It’s good to see the kitties are thinking of you while you’re gone. 🙂
Great idea on the pet food donations!
Oh yes, the donations. Thanks, Sydney. That is very sweet (& generous) of you.
Maybe it is some kind of code! Or an anagram? If it were William Henry, all the signs would point to MORE FOOD PLEASE.
