And so it begins again.

We got to the cat shelter to do our Friday night shift of cat care, and there were two adoptions being done. It was wonderful to watch. Two adult cats getting homes.

We got home to a phone call from the kitten coordinator for the rescue group. Five newborn kittens, abandoned by mom, do I feel up to it.

Sure, bring them on. What's one more flea on an elephant?

The circle continues.
