This has been a week of blessings. My neighbor, Judy, had asked me to look in on her two cats while she was out of town. She and her hubby live in a cozy rustic log home here in my neighborhood. I can't count the times I've driven past their home wishing I'd one day have a chance to see inside it. My wish was granted. I checked on her home and cats twice a day for ten days and received compensation for doing so. How wonderful was that? The funds I received for cat-sitting will be used to pay for spaying some feral kittens and one adult cat, Dixie.
Last night Spouse and I were blessed to meet with friends at a local restaurant. Before our meals came, my dear kindred cat friend, Chris, reached across the table with a closed hand and said, "Here". I asked if it was a bug she was trying to give me. There was no bug, but instead, Chris dropped a generous amount of cash into my hand. "That's to help with Dixie's spay", she said. I was shocked and tried to give it back to her but she wouldn't hear of it. I thanked her and felt very blessed to have such a friend. Chris shares my love of cats and actually has adopted a few of them that came my way. We're both crazy cat ladies and proud of it, right Chris?
What would I do without friends like these? Chris has dropped off huge bags of cat food from time to time. She and I both feed strays. What she's given has helped keep the strays fed and happy. The world would be a much better place if there were more people like Chris and Judy in it. Thank you, my friends. The cats thank you too.
