The new computer purchased by the support of our web cam friends has arrived. It won't be long until you'll see it in action. I have a wonderful story to tell you about Driscoll. Driscoll is a big white cat adopted last year by a volunteer named Dennis. Dennis visited last night and told me what Driscoll did. Two nights ago, he got on Dennis' bed (I believe it was 2 a.m.) and kept pawing his face over and over again. Generally making it difficult for Dennis to sleep. As soon as Dennis opened his eyes, Driscoll jumped off the bed and walked out of the room. Dennis followed him and was led into the kitchen. Driscoll went over to the stove. There Dennis found his gas stove had been accidentally turned on (probably by one of his other cats) and the whole kitchen smelled like gas. Dennis quickly turned the stove off and gave Driscoll a whole can of food. Driscoll is our hero! Jeepers and Gonzo both have people interested in them. We'll know more this week. I had a wonderful conversation last night with Hannah and her mom, Jennifer. Hannah (the 9 year old girl we're collecting Christmas cards for) is aware of what we are doing and is super excited! This will be so much fun for her. Her mom is sending an updated picture of Hannah that I can share with all of you. The last 2 days I've had a touch of the flu. I want to thank Linda T (clemmm) for coming in these 2 mornings and helping with the early morning work. I am so grateful for her help. Would also like to extend our sympathy and prayers to Colleen in the loss of her dad. I've given your 2 future kittens, Weasley and Dhana a big hug for you. This morning I saw Weasley in hot pursuit of Paddy Cake--they sure were having fun! This Saturday is a surgery day for FFRC. Dr. Darci will be doing these surgeries. So far, we have these cats scheduled: Cessna, Dhana, Weasley, Pawsome, Erie, Betz, Holly, Jolly & Rolly. We will also have Dr. Darci check Kurt Williams shoulder and do a physical on Sari and Merci. Thanks to these people for their help yesterday at the rescue center: Jodi, Mary E, Linda, Jackie S, Ruth, Angie, Stacey & Kurt. Sweet Putter has had a talk with me with an important message--love your family, friends and web cammers! He also added a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all, from him!
