Photos, Photos, Aieeeee Photos

The local Humane Society and county animal shelter sponsored a special Saturday adoption day on June 21st. Jan said it was a terrific day, except for the sunburn she wore home. We wouldn't know since we weren't invited.

Buddy: She's been exhausted this week, but no wonder. She just had a birthday and turned ancient. Would you believe she's ....OUCH! She hit me. I don't care what you say, Jan. You were NOT swatting a fly. You swatted me. Do I look like a fly to anyone? Just for that, she's mmvmvvm --

Cotton: Sorry. Buddy is having a little trouble speaking at the moment. I think the rest of us will pass on giving away Jan's age.

Anyway, before Buddy got us sidetracked, we were saying Jan has been working on the photos all week. Well, not all week, just off and on when she could keep her eyes open and her brain in gear. She captioned 10 for the newspaper. Then she had to stop to take the weekly shelter photos and .....

And finally, just a short while ago she got the adopted animals and a few extra pictures posted. We'd congratulate her for finally accomplishing this but she's busy snoring at the moment.

We know you don't live in this area but if you would like to see the happy adopters and adoptees, drop by

Now, if you will excuse us, as long as Jan has fallen asleep in a chair, we're going to go take a snooze in her bed.

  1. I think the rest of you were very smart to pass on telling Jan's age. You wouldn't want to be mistaken for a fly.

    We will purr that all the shelter animals find homes. We are so proud of Jan for helping them. ~Socks, Scylla & Charybdis

  2. You know the saying, a day late and dollar short? Well, I am a few days and a euro short! Just wanted to stop in and wish you a happy belated birthday. I hope it was filled with fun, love and laughter. Of course, with this cute crew of animals living with you, I am sure the day was filled with just that!

    Buon compleanno e tanti auguri
    (happy birthday and many wishes).

  3. Just visited the adoption site and what a wonderful day seeing the smiles on the faces of the new moms and dads. Also the happy furries waiting to start their new lives with new loving families giving unconditional love to the new families. What a great day! GOOD JOB!! Oh, don't worry about your age, I know for a fact that you are younger than the mom and dad at my place.

  13. We knew that you posted my dear friend, Emil's, photo so we wanted to stop by. We are both so sad that he is no longer with us here. Both of us are fortunate for having him in our lives, even though it was for way too short of time.
    We will forever think of him and always miss him.
