Last week, I got home from work and innocently logged on to my computer. I was thinking I'd just check my e-mail "real quick." Well, you know how that one goes, don't you? One thing led to another and before I knew it, hours had passed and there I was, sitting at the computer with my purse still on my shoulder. I totally got stuck...stuck in the vortex they "YouTube!"
I started out typing in my favorite YouTube topic "cute kittens." Sweet sweet stuff. This led me to watch The Mean Kitty Song. Friggin' hilarious! This then led to me to watch The Mean Kitty's Story. Very cool. Then that video led me to watch one of the video responses posted which was called Rosemary's Story. The beautiful video of a older cat waiting to be adopted tore my heart our, made me cry, and called me to action. Good stuff.
I am very happy to tell you that as a result of Rosemary's Story, last Friday, I submitted an application to be a volunteer with the Cat Adoption Team (CAT) in Sherwood, Oregon. I am so excited! This is where we adopted Atticus from in December of 2004. Atticus was technically Miranda's present for her 18th birthday. However, somewhere along the way, we realized Atticus was in love with me so and so when Miranda moved out, Atti stayed with me! :-)
My volunteer orientation is in April and I'm so looking forward to this fabulous opportunity! I just love love love kitties and I love love love caring for them, putting love and cuddles on them and making them feel happy to be alive. I'm just gonna have to be careful and not fall in love with too many of them and want to bring them home! :-)
I'll keep you posted on this new "project." I'm sure I'm in for some fun kitty-shaped adventures!
PS...I just order some new Moo cards...and this is one of the pictures I used!
