Jan. 7 Saturday

The cats are super excited this morning. My sister Judy always brings them hambones when they hav a ham meal. The kittens and cats LOVE this! What at first looks like alot of meat on that bone, quickly becomes just a bone! Keeps them entertained for a long time. Cinnabon and Picasso are now my new desk friends. They insist on learning typing skills which makes my typing much slower--but they have fun. Poor Putter has a bit of a tummyache. We are treating him and hopefully he'll be feeling better today. Twinkle is looking good and has a great appetite. Sari also knows how to eat good--her normal is to have 2 breakfasts! Holly is at the moment sleeping on the big hammock that is in Dodger's Pen. Those 2 hammocks have become favorite napping areas.

Lots of changes are happening at the Rescue Center. Soon you will be able to see the new website-how very exciting. I believe you all will be thrilled! Many many dozens of hours have gone into it. We will also be meeting soon for our first Advisory Board. This is designed to take a little workload from me. Jan. 30th is still the scheduled date for the beginning of the new floor. I actually took 2 pieces of floor away from Kiara--she was walking around with chips in her mouth. Not eating them, just carrying them around.

Year end stats are done.
