Helping Annie

Hey Everybody!

The 6 week old kitten I pulled out of traffic (aka Road Kitty, aka Annie) and gave to a rescue organization is getting an operation!


I'm still in touch with the rescue, because I think Annie is an awesome cat and deserves a chance at a normal happy life. Carrie, who is an amazingly sweet person let me know about Annie's condition. Turns out that lame arm of hers was shattered when she was hit by the car. It's useless, in the way and can't be all that great to lug around. The vet has decided to remove the useless leg. Annie is in a very caring foster home and will be okay once the operation is over. Happy Strays is looking to raise enough money to cover the procedure. They are a bonafide Charity, you can donate to them in a million ways, just check their site: HappyStrays.org

BUT - if you would like to help little Road Kitty heal, you can donate directly to her cause on this page:


Even though she's living elsewhere, I feel responsible for the life of this little creature and would love it you could donate whatever you can, even a little bit helps. Just think if 25 people donate $20, we're halfway home! If you are out of moolah, pass the word and let your friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. help out on this one too!

As my niece says "Handicapped Kittens are even more adorable..."

Ya gotta, Accentuate thee positive

Good things are afoot ladies n' gentlemen:

Munchy is done with antibiotics for her UTI. Yay.

We have blocked all holes/entry into our home so the mice shouldn't be able to find their way in (fingers crossed) So we won't have to pay the exterminator $879 just for stinkin mice removal. Yay.

My vertigo is gone. Yay.

My Dad is in better spirits and health (Still has disease, still in midst of chemo, but acting/feeling much better than 2 weeks ago.) Yay!

Kitty I found in the street has a nice Foster Mom who named the kitty Annie. Annie is spunky but may lose her useless front leg. Let's yay the spunky part and the part where if I would have been 2 minutes later, Annie wouldn't have been at all. So Yay.

Seen and I are gainfully employed in a tough economy. Yay.

Seen and I have a home to live in, for now. Yay.

Seen is my husband. Yay to infinity!

I get to teach writing workshops with fun people who I like. Yay.

So let's put the drama behind us, shall we? If just to breathe easy for a minute.

Eeek a Mouse!!

We have mice. At least I hope it's mice and not rats. I took the trash out of it's spot under the kitchen sink last night and saw little brown sprinkles.

I said "Honey, come look at this..." And Sean said

"We have mice"

Yup, little brown mouse turd sprinkles all over the cupboard under my kitchen sink. EWWWWWWWW. Dude. Ewwwwww. I cleaned it out with bleach, but this morning, little sprinkles down there again.

Greenleaf Organic Pest control is coming out today to see how we can get rid of the jerks. I would LOVE to have them sing and dance with me and make me a dress and serve as coachmen when my Fairy Godmother sets me up for the big Ball, but... I have doubts that I could convince the mice of such fanciful stuff.
