One Kitty is NEVER ENUF!!!!! Celebrate International Cat Day Today!

I love love love kitties and during one of our recent fishing trips to Pymatuning, we had driven to Andover, OH to the Amish Store. Ok, Lynne, where are you going with this story . . . WELL, on the way back saw a sign saying Adoption Kitties Available. Bob, of course stopped because he knew there would be no living with me and he too is an animal lover. There is this beautiful white house with a carriage house to the one side. I knock on the door and introduce myself and get told by this amazing woman that her name is Lynn also!!!! It was a sign!!! (LOL!!! - I saw you laugh!!!). She leads me inside and to my amazement, I thought I was in heaven - cats and kittens everywhere in this 2 room bungaloo. She takes me in the kitten room and offers me a seat and this one kitten kept telling me to take her but I had my eye on this grey kitty with white paws and the Bengal kitties and and and . . . . well, to make a long long story short as I can see you are going to sleep - Lynn is a rescue shelter that accepts cats and kittens along with even ferrel cats. She has a vet come in once a week to check to make sure all is well and even has a woman that bottle feeds the ones that were taken from their mamma too early. She is truly amazing!!!! She asks $10 for the adoption and even gives you a cardboard cat carrier - who could ask for more???

Since August 8th is International Cat Day, this card is for Lynn from Lynne . . . .

Well, as you might of guessed, I did come home with another kitty as a pet for our black lab, Princess, who adores her, my Maine Coon, Patches, who wants to know what was I thinking and Bob who just loves her. At this time, I would like to introduce the newest member of our family, Chloe who was one of the bottle-fed babies and I believe has Siamese in her with her cries:

  1. Awwww...love to hear of good people in a world with so much hatred and violence. What a saint Lynn is for sheltering those precious animals. Chloe is a doll. I do wish my husband would allow a cat but he's set against it. So enjoy her for me too. Beautiful card too. Thanks for linking up at Chalk ah Lot.
