Today's word for the photohunt is "footprints". This is my keepsake from my cat, Kitty Kitty Meow Meow who passed away in early fall. We used to make these paw print keepsakes for people at the vet clinic I worked at.
Speaking of cats, I have a small announcement to make. We *might* be getting a kitty over here. You see, my father has asked me if I can find a cat for his barn. Ever since, KKMM passed away the mice have been roaming freely. I haven't seen so many mice around since I was in high school.
I've looked at our local shelter's website and it seems as though they do have a program that specifically helps place feral cats with people who need cats for their barn. Apparently, these cats would otherwise be euthanized. And the cats are already spayed or neutered. So, this is one option.
The other option is cats from my mom. My mom lives in a neighborhood where feral cats run rampant. She's claimed at least 2 to herself and they live in her yard. My mother has been living at my house for at least a month now because she has a chronic injury that isn't allowing her to work anymore. She is unable to pay her electricity/water bills so she had to leave the cats behind.
I was thinking about getting her to bring some of her cats over here for the barn. They'd need to be fixed of course. I'm slightly annoyed because when I brought this up to my father, his response was "Not if they are boy cats." You'd think he'd know better with my occupation... some people are just very hard-headed when it comes to this stuff. If he won't get the cats fixed, I suppose I will take them to the low-cost clinic.
Anyways, I am slightly excited at the thought of a kitty hanging out around here. I miss kitties. :)
