animal rants

i think my rescue is going to fold. it's not "my" rescue, but i foster for them and they outed the lovely lady that directs the program in order to bring someone in who is...better??? i don't know that there could be much better than sherrie. i wish that wasn't happenning because I loved working with her. and no one has even contacted me to let me know there is going to be a change.

I found a home for Pauly G.! Well, I didn't, but my friend Linsday did. Super excited about that. A very nice gentleman who she works with is going to give him a lovey home. I love it! Pauly is such a cool kitty.

Today I was at our vet picking up Pauly from his neutering and there was this woman there who rescues mini pinschers from breeders who mistreat. There was this little cutie who was thrown against a wall and his eye was all busted up. Arhg! I don't get it. How could someone do that to an animal.

And then...the woman who rescues these pinschers ran out to get two more. I looked out the window to see if she needed some help and noticed that these two little dogs were running around the parking lot loose. Holy crap! It was right on Watson. Very busy road during rush hour. All of us were out there trying to catch these little ladies who have not had very much human contact because they were caged and makin' babies for the man their entire lives. Again, something wrong with our society.

On a lighter note, this is the second day of the rest of my life! My last day at the County Ass & Beer was Friday. I am super duper happy and psyched to start the new chapter in my life. Since my rescue went kapput(sp?) I'm going to think long and hard about starting one of my own. It's something I've always thought about doing, but it is such a life long devotion that is very difficult to allow for any time for yourself. It may be something I will do later in life. I have a vision though.

Here is a necklace dedicated to the animals. I call it break the chains...dedicated to the anti-circus movement. Please don't support the circus. It is only animal abuse. They use the animals as pawns for their money making and don't treat them well otherwise. Please do not go to the circus anymore.

thanks for listening to my rants.

THAT cat!

Unfortunately I have not been able to find a home for Pauly G. He is going to have to go back to the farm. I don't know, maybe it isn't so unfortunate for him. Maybe we (or just me) anthropomorphise animals and really they are ok chillin' outdoors. Seems like a hard life. But, the guy who lives on the farm feeds the kitties so at least Pauly G won't have to learn how to hunt...it can just be his hobby.

For real! only 2 more days of County Glass. Next Wednesday and Friday. It is a good thing because I have gotten rather testicle with the customers when they are rude. It is such a strange business. The customers are extremely entitled. I suppose glass is one of those things that people want and don't need.

Let's see, what else. I gave the Frankmonster a horrible haircut today. Poor dog crapped herself at the groomers she was so scared and wouldn't come out of her kennel snapping at the workers the whole time. I got the phone call every pet owner dreads. "Ms. King, Uhm, we're sorry, but we are not going to be able to groom Frankie today, uhm she's too mean." Choke, swallow..oh, I understand, I'll be right there...(i swear I don't abuse my dog) she's just totally neurotic. We are going to take her to training classes for shy and fearful dogs. Not that she's shy and fearful toward us, just the rest of earth and probably planet. So, I bought me some clippers today and went at it. She was so good and patient. She looks so bad, but it's so funny, bald spots and all, she is prancing around like she is a new woman. hee hee.

This necklace is dedicated to Pauly G because I want THAT cat to get adopted!

Ain't nothin' but a G thing

Little Pauly a.k.a. little gangster or just G. has lived a couple of his 9 lives already at the young age of 16 weeks. If you want a kitty with some character, Little Pauly is the one. This little kitty at 8 weeks of age road about an hour and a half on someone's transmission, all the way from Jerseyville to Brentwood. When he jumped out from under the car, needless to say, he was a little frazzled. The guy who's farm he came from was going to take him back and dump him. He would not have survived. He was not in very good shape. Only one burn mark, but his eyes were cloudy and he seemed extremely week. He was malnutritioned, but after vet examination and a little grimey greese removal, the little gangster turned out to be quite the handsome looking fellow.

It has been 8 weeks since he has been with us and although he has not completely kicked his respiratory infection, Pauly is an active and loving and smart kitten. He comes when he is called and purrs more than any kitty I have ever been around. I personally think he knew what he was doing when he hopped on that truck's transmission. He wanted out of the farm life and into the big city where he could be the little gangster he always knew he was.

Unfortunately, one person living in our home is horribly allergic to gangster kitties. So, Pauly has to stay secluded in one room of the house. He gets lots of love and attention from us, but would be much happier in a forever home with someone to love him like a gangster deserves to be loved. Whoever ends up with little G. is going to be very lucky. He is a great kitty cat.
