On July 14, 1998, Chad and I walked into Lindley Park Recreation Center in Greensboro, NC, to pick up two kittens from a lady named Sharon. Not to keep. Just to foster until they found new homes. Little did I know that twenty years later, we’d still be getting foster … Continue reading
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
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

Writing wasn’t going well yesterday, so I decided to change gears and do some sketching. Continue reading
If you’ve been keeping track, then you know that I’ve raised $490 in Human Race donations so far. That puts me just $10 from my goal.
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 would leave a dog in a crate with no food, no water, and no one to find her until the next day?

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
