A Rescuer's poem

I am an Animal Rescuer
My job is to assist God's creatures
I was born with the drive to fulfill their needs
I take in helpless, unwanted, homeless creatures without planning or selection
I have bought cat food with my last dime
I have patted a matted and dirty cat with my bare hand
I have hugged someone feral and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times
And I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body too many times to count
I have animal friends and friends who have animal friends
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
I want to live forever if there aren't any animals in Heaven
But I believe there are
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind
Some may think we are master of the animals
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse make me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for mankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And we are making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat
By the love of those who I've been privileged to rescue
I have been rescued
I know what true unconditional love really is
for I've seen it shining in the eyes of so many
Grateful for so little
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full

a good t-shirt is a new t-shirt

The one downside to having cats with long claws is that I have alot of t-shirts with holes. Especially my favourite ones. Trimming their claws is not the easiest. It is a real challenge at best, they act as if I am torturing them and their meows warn off the others whose turn it is next. So I guess if I need a good t-shirt, I have to buy new ones.

Cassidy been home for a few days and she seems to be on the mend. I hope she will be able to stave off another cold for awhile.

The rest of the feline zoo are doing okay, they love to snuggle with me in bed, hardly leaving any room for me, but I would not have it any other way.

Today is also supposed to be cleaning day but I am just not feeling it. Maybe tomorrow?

Meow for now \\..//
