Foster Kitten Update: Kova, Kaya, Picasso, and Monet

Monet

Three seems to be the magic number for Chad and me this kitten season. We started out with our three little cosmonauts, Kova, Kaya, and Garin. Not surprisingly, fluffy Miss Kova got adopted first. Not to be outdone, Kaya got a fantastic application the day after we delivered Kova to … Continue reading

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Up To Date Kittens!

Kova, Kaya, and Garin got their first vaccination (and second deworming) tonight, so you know what that means. Yep! They get to go to their first adoption fair this Saturday. And Sunday, too, of course. Which means YOU can finally get to meet them! It also means that instead of … Continue reading

(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday: Sleepytime Garin

My friend Azizah Asgarali, aka @gourmetpens, has a regular feature on her blog called Wordless Wednesday. It’s usually pics of her gorgeous cats. I thought it might be something nice to start doing on my blog. After all, with 6-week-old kittens in the house, we have no shortage of cat … Continue reading

When I first posted about walking in the Human Race to raise money for ARFP, I said that I have over 100 followers on Twitter, so if each one donated just $5 I’d easily make my goal. Now I just need two. Continue reading

What Kind of Person…

What kind of person would leave a dog in a crate with no food, no water, and no one to find her until the next day?

If Millie could talk, I’m sure she could tell us, because that’s exactly what happened to her. Continue reading

Writer, with Groundhog

Normally when Chad and I go to McAlister’s Deli, it’s to support ARFP, the animal rescue group we volunteer with. Or because one of us is craving a giant baked potato. But last night we grabbed dinner there to support Piedmont Wildlife Rehab. And they brought groundhogs! I placed my … Continue reading
