My first day at the shelter

Friday evening I went into the shelter where we got Izzy from and went over some stuff. I wont have a regular spot because the good thing, is they are pretty full w/staff but I will be trained for the people who go on vacation thsi summer to work their times.

I did volunteer to take a load of laundry home each week.

But while I'm there, I get to take them out of their cages (one at a time of course) and play. How cool is that? Playing w/cats all evening! Izzy was none too happy when I came home either. :giggle I'll do laundry drop off/pick up/ and play time on Wednesdays.

BEG, that's really good of you to do. I'm glad to hear you at least get to play with a few kitties while you're there. Hopefully there will be lots of holidays this summer!

DS (gotta love that kid) told me "I will have to hose you down in the driveway before you come in the house."

That's great in the summer. Winter, not that much!!!
But it'll get the neighbours talking.

Hey look Martha - every Wednesday night this lady comes home and her kid is waiting with the gardening hose.
Joe - You're crazy!
No, look for yourself Martha................
(Ok, I got too much time on my hands.........)

So nice of you to help out at the shelter BEG! And I hope you don't have to resort to the hose...maybe a heated in-ground pool? Quick dip after a hard afternoon of playin' with kitties...
