Rescue Cat & Kittens
About two weeks ago we received a call from a woman we know, asking for help with a Moma cat who’d given birth to 4 kittens in a hole in her backyard. The Moma was semi-feral, but had probably been a pet as she had come around begging for food at her neighbor’s in the past. The town and the local animal rescue people were all full up, and so she called us as a last resort, knowing we love cats. The short story is that we were able to rescue the Moma and three of her kittens. The fourth, a beautiful little red kitty with blue eyes eluded our every attempt at rescue. Moma has been spayed and received all her shots. The little girls are scheduled to visit the Vet in early September, but I have de-wormed them. The Mom is still very afraid of everything and so are two of her babies. However, they all have very healthy appetites! The Mom we called Sophie. The little ones are Bella, Punkin and Spunky. The kitten we named Bella has decided to adopt us. She’s the alpha-female of the litter and a total love-bug … quick to purr and loves to sleep on our son’s chest.
However, it’s not doing much for my designing time. I have two freebie designs in the works, but not enough hours in my day. My printer died two weeks ago and the part it needed cost almost as much as a new printer. Things just aren’t made like they used to be … it was was over its warranty period by two months. I’ve been screen-shopping for a printer.
My two year old refrigerator also died one night last week. Its predecessor lasted over 25 years with no problems. But the LG Tech people “revived” it by having us unplug it and let it sit for 4 hours. Forget the food inside! So, as much as I’m longing to sit in the air conditioning and play with color and design other priorities have intervened. And as for the air conditioner which is a portable (great idea, but it still has a few bugs to work out) it’s been soooo humid here that it needs to have its water drained frequently. And I mean frequently. The drain plug is, of course, on the very bottom of the unit, and requires a pan shallow enough to fit under that bottom plug. I’ve spilled lots of water trying to get the pan from under the AC to the bathroom. The cats like to come and watch when I empty it.
