She also spent about an hour and a half trying to help out around the rescue, but she is woefully lame when it comes to things like mopping and sweeping. She hopes she didn’t make things dirtier! I think the cats were laughing at her.
At least she knows how to scoop out a litter box, although sometimes at home you would not know that.
While she was there, she took the opportunity to take photos of some of the kitties who are looking for homes. This orange and white cat was so desperate, he was crawling up my human’s leg and standing on her back. I am lucky she did not bring him home.
This one was also begging for a home for Christmas.
In fact, that was pretty much a common thread among all these kitties.
They were all asking the same question.
“Will you please take me home?”
But of course my human could not take any of them with her. She can barely handle the three of us. It made her sad to leave all these kitties behind, though.
So maybe you are wondering what all these cats have to do with this week’s Photo Hunt theme. Well, I am a very lucky kitty. Not only do I have a home, it’s a very large one, and not only do I get lots of toys and treats — at Christmas, and all through the year — I also get lots of cool free stuff because I am a professional cat writer. It is one of the perks of being in the business! Since I am so fortunate, it only makes sense that I give back and help out kitties who are in need. Whenever I play a part in a cat getting rescued from death row, or make a homeless cat’s life a little easier by donating cat toys that I receive, it creates a circle of love, healing and help for kitties everywhere.
So this Christmas, don’t just say, “Thank you” — look inside your heart and ask, “What can I do?”
Merry Christmas, and let’s do what we can for less fortunate kitties in the new year.
