Our numbers have now grown to be 72 spays/neuters so far for 2017. That breaks down to 40 females and 32 males. As time goes by, we want those numbers to climb and climb! This evening we will not be able to have BOXES because check outs for these 31 cats will be about 5:30 to 6:15--it all depends on when the Spay/Neuter truck returns.
The Washer and Dryer are still being fine-tuned. The guys returned today. We've been using the washer and absolutely love it. There is a little problem with the dryer though but hopefully that will be fixed soon. Have no worries about this---the company will get it right--guaranteed!
We have some thanks to give!

We had 2 adoptions on Saturday.
Jules was adopted to a wonderful family. I've already heard back. Her new name is Pompeii. She and her new friend Mulan are becoming friends and was both on the bed with the smaller dog. She is playful and comes when called. She loves to cuddle up on her mama's neck and enjoys belly rubs. She is in her forever home!
Pippi was also adopted but unfortunately was returned the next day. The resident cat absolutely did not want to share the house with Pippi. I know that sometimes these things take time, but in this case, time wasn't going to help. So, Pippi is back. But, we learned that Pippi can handle a new home--she did beautifully there and so will again some time!
I do have some sad news about the 2 new kittens that arrived on Friday. Unfortunately, they both have passed away, hours from eah other. I have talked to Dr. Darcy and given what they went thru before coming here, they had very very poor health. I felt very sad about this, but there was nothing we could do.......except give them the love they received while here.
Our other new cat, the calico that was found on my mom's furnace is doing great. She has a name.....it is Mabelline. She is a beauty. We brought her up this morning and she spent a few hours in Dodger's Pen just checking things out. Early afternoon we let her out and she seems quite happy. A little growly yet but the potential is most definitely there for being a wonderful sweet girl! She's here in the office right now with me all curled up comfortably taking a nap.
I've been working on some new stories. Here is Coralie's:
