How many board meetings do you get to go to with a beautiful orange kitty snoozing on the table? He is awake in this shot but was snoozing up a storm earlier and taking multiple baths while being scratched and petted by almost everyone in the room. I call him the Chairman as he always attends each meeting without fail usually sleeping on someone’s paperwork or playing with an ink pen cover.
I always like to visit the dogs and cats when I am at BHS and today one kitty caught my eye BIG TIME! I love double toed cats and this litter had enough toes for the whole building. Look at the little orange and white one, she looks like she has snowshoes on! I wanted to put her in my pocket and bring her home but figured Noodles, Munchkin and the Hubs would all revolt so thought best of it. Sigh……..
We also have lots of puppies (which aren’t old enough to be adopted yet) that are just adorable. Oh how I would like to adopt one for Miss T and Mr. D but again I would be outvoted…….. Look at that face though, how sweet is this sleepy guy? I have a feeling that my friend Amy might take this guy home when he is ready in a few weeks. :o)
We are gearing up for our next low cost spay and neuter day on the 27th of March. The only cure for the overabundance of unwanted cats and dogs is to spay and neuter. One lone cat has kittens, then they all have kittens and then those kittens have kittens and it goes on and on. We at Bangor Humane Society are dedicated to breaking this cycle in our area and hope to have more and more low cost clinics in the future.
The raccoons are back from their winter long sleep in my hayloft. They wintered very well in their deluxe accommodations and are now ready to clean up under my birdfeeders each night along with the occasional marshmallow……..ahem….. I ran into one of my neighbors today at a restaurant and she said they are raiding her birdfeeders too. They must be really hungry after such a long sleep. Someone sent me this picture, isn't it a hoot?!
Thanks to my friend Pea over at Pea’s Corner I was able to purchase some more Switchables on Ebay. I love the flip flops for summer and of course I love all things bumblebees. Thanks Miss Pea!
The wind is blowing like crazy here. I went to lunch with some friends today and when we went in the restaurant it was calm and sunny and when I came out a couple hours later it was just wild! I’m surprised that the power hasn’t gone out as the trees are really swaying. The snow has dropped a lot. It was raining again in the night, I know that because Noodles ran out when poor Hubs left for work at 4 a.m. and then because it was raining he (Noodles not Hubs) woke me up yowling wanting to come back in! Grrrrrrrrr………..
Doesn’t seem like it should be Friday night already. Tomorrow my sister and I are going to work on another quilting project after I do her hair. In my younger years I was a hairdresser and have maintained a few skills, very few, it’s been 18 years since I worked in my salon. I don’t miss it but I miss the people. I had such wonderful clients that became close friends over the years. I am still in contact with some of them even after all these years. Tina, I know you know what I am talking about!
