Winter Storm Jonas Caturday has arrived pelting us with blizzard-like conditions and high winds. As long as the power doesn’t go out we’re happy to be snowed in. The cats as snug as bugs in rugs and the only one fool enough to want to go outside is Odin. This is one day he doesn’t get his wish. Maybe tomorrow once the sun is out and he can do his famous snow angels.
Seriously, please keep your pets indoor if possible and if they need to be walked, leashed. If you are in the storm zone, stay home and if you must venture out, go slow. It’s takes nine times longer to come to a stop on an icy road than a dry one.
We had a few nice surprises this week but we never expected to win an award out of the blue. Our dear pal, the ginger and cream tabby Sammy from OneSpoiledCat bestowed the Blogger Recognition Award.
He and his mom Pam are simply one the kindest and most gracious blogger friends we’ve known since we began this blog 5 years ago. We can’t visit as often as we’d like but OneSpoiledCat remains a cherished favorite. They live in Virginia were walloped by the storm so we’re purring they stay safe. Stop by and say hi. They won the award from Musings of Puppy Doc, a blog by a cat lover physician nicknamed Puppy with a bold creative streak. Her soulful art and poetry about being a doctor wows and her cat Samantha is a charmer.
Our other surprise was finding out our Nou Nou’s furbro Pablo was finally adopted after almost two years. This brings a happy full circle ending for those rescued hoarder cats. In fact, so many cats were adopted recently, the shelter was almost empty! I believe in the power of social media sharing made a difference. It’s one of the reasons I keep blogging, every time I think of quitting which is much too often these days.
This is one several adoption graphics I made for Pablo who turned from fearful to fabulous. It was so long ago before the shelter changed their name to Humane Society of Westchester.
