I work some pretty awesome people. Shortly after Christmas I became aware of a situation and needed some assistance having some cats removed from a hoarding situation. I had heard my coworker Sharon had rescued cats and horses in the past. I didn't know that she has a network of awesome people. Within an hour of telling her of the situation, she had made phone calls and those people had made phone calls. That night, the cats were evaluated. The next day, they were on their way to being removed. Within a few days, they were cleaned, cared for, given lots of love, and were on their way to their forever homes. Words cannot describe how grateful I am for her assistance.
Sharon and her friends rescued 29 cats, cleaned them, gave them veterinarian care, and spayed and neutered all of 29 them. She works with Richland Animal Rescue; please take a moment and check them out.
My table set up for this year has a vintage theme. Sharon gave me her beloved grandmother's cosmetic case to use. She said that she has many fond memories of her grandmother and this case. She said she is just happy that someone will be using it. I feel privileged that she was willing to let me have it, and I plan on cherishing it.
And of course, I can't let any serious post occur without a little humor. Doesn't this case have the cutest little face? Big ol' anime eyes and a cute, tiny smile...
