today in the mail, i received 2 different envelopes both from the people at Best Friends. Each contained a lovely card with many signatures and special notes. One card was to thank us for taking in the americats..it was so nice to see how much these cats were loved. but the other was a similarly signed sympathy card expressing their sorrow for our loss of rainbow.
i can't tell you folks how much those cards mean to me, sometimes it is a giantly large world of rescue...but your kindness in sharing a moment of loss with us, touched me very deeply.
and as a thank you for those special cards...here is your treat for tonight....
heidi brought dinner to share tonight so the americats had their first indoor saints picnic...and let me tell you sunrise's shyness dissipates as soon as warm chicken appears. he grabbed that chunk of chicken in his mouth and he growled while he wolfed that down. and all the rest enjoyed it too, especially sanjaya and ronnie. red got so excited he started to dart around and was doing summersaults on the scratching tree, and rock just called out when his piece disappeared for another delivery please. tiki was beside himself cuz he loves any kind of food but he loves fresh chicken the best.
when they were done (ok they weren't quite done, but we were), they all hit the door and misfit and charlie voiced their collective need and that chicken starved crew stared right at us hoping against hope that we might bring in a bit more.
apparently it is a tough kind of life being FeLV and homeless in an animal shelter.
