Fur Babies

I used to love to travel. The Army had a slogan. FTA. Fun Travel Adventure. Once I joined, I found that FTA stood for a different acronym. I'll leave that one to your imagination. If you can't figure it out I'll email it to you. 'Cuz we only say Faux on this here blog.

One of the places we ended up was Oklahoma. I earned my nursing degree and a divorce decree in Oklahoma. *sing that to a country tune, it's a sure hit*
Hi Tiffany!

My ex didn't want anything. I sure didn't want anything either. I put up a big old MOVING sale in front of the house and sold everything off. One unintentional thing that went with the furniture was my daughter C.A.'s cat. Either she was hiding in the dresser as it went out the door, or she escaped during the Great Furniture Evacuation.

We ended up at the local APL hoping to find Sadie. I think maybe she met the Rottweiler next door but I wouldn't say that to a four-year old. We found.....Wild Bill.
Bill looked like a small bear. I thought he would eat up my precious little daughter.

He didn't. We took him home to Ohio. Clementine came too. (that's Bill on the right with the pearls. W.i.l.d. Bill). (not really, but it could be him)

Years passed. The Zoo got bigger. I'm a sucker for beasties...Mr. Magoo. Sprout. Rosie & Luna. Frank. Pierre. Ollie. There is a NO MORE PETS rule at the J'Ollie Home. Ollie was a rule breaker. Dang him.

WHO brought all of these beasties home? C.A. The one beastie who no longer lives here at least she doesn't live here THIS MINUTE. Things change.
WHO called the other night to say "Guess what? I'm fostering two kitties! They are so stinkin' cuuuuute!" *insert baby talk to stinkin' cute kitties here*

We had a breif but meaningful discussion on the definitions of FOSTERING and KEEPING.


The point to this post? Go to the top left corner. There's a purple button there. Click on it. Go on, click it. There. You've just filled .6 bowls of food in an animal shelter. Clicking that button will take you to a web site. You just click on one more button to feed an animal. For every click the web sponsors will pay for .6 bowls of food. The Food Lady thanks you. The shelter animals thank you. About those two foster kitties.........they will be given as Fabulous Prizes to the first taker.

you are well on your way to being the Crazy Cat Lady, are you not? :)

Soxy Deb said...

What are you like the Pied Piper or something? Good to hear you drew the line. Even if it was in the kitty liter.

I would like to know how my sweetie (sometimes known as Linda) made it all the way back from Oklahoma when she can't tell the animal button is in the top LEFT corner and not the top RIGHT corner???

J'Ollie Primitives said...

um well the button is now on the LEFT. My other right.

Thank you Mr. Smarty Know It All.

Just hearing you speak of all your fur babies makes my Hoover clog up! ;) We had two cats (one long hair and one short) before the kids. I miss them but perfer my kids. Big allergy house now ... ahchuo!

I think it's wonderful that you are such a loving and caring person towards animals. Wish there were more like you out there.

Thanks for caring and for posting the button. Hopefully everyone will at least do that much to help the unwanted animals.

I love that picture of your pretty cat with pearls - too cute! I'll go over - it's such a great cause!! We have 2 dogs (Buddie and Barbie) and 2 cats (Snape and Banana Pancake).

Take care - Kellan

I don't think my chihuahua's would like anymore cats in the house.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

OKay...so am I safe to say that you like cats? Maybe even LOVE them? :)

Carolina Girl said...

binks said...

Love the kitties - the doggies, not so much.
Two pets is WAY too many, so glad that the hubby is the litter scooper.

We have 2 cats and one dog now...we would SO have a second dog if my husband had no say. And maybe a 3rd cat too. for good measure. : ) Nill keeps saying that the vet's bills are already bad enough 'round here. Hmpf.
I am such a fur baby softie...I would have lots of I could. : )
