We had two very temporary residents at the cat shelter this week:
|Sphynx cats, a brother and sister,.|
Their owner couldn't care for them, so she gave them to a relative who decided they were too much trouble (they require a lot of special care for their skin) and took them to the pound. We have a great relationship with our local pound, they try to rehome as many animals as they can working with us and other organizations. They called us, we got them and took them in for a check-up the next day, and the vet's receptionist adopted them immediately!
|Their skin is soft and, as you can see up close, very wrinkly.|
Friendly Fill-Ins are easy to do. There are four statements: the first two statements are provided by Ellen of 15AndMeowing, and the final two are offered by McGuffy Ann Morris of McGuffy's Reader. They try to make sure the statements will be fun to both answer and share. The linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM on Friday. Please head over to one of their sites, link up, and share your thoughts!
My fill-ins for the statements are underlined:
Week 38: January 27, 2017
1. I have seen _______________________ on Broadway.
2. My Chinese zodiac sign is ___________________.
3. Celebrities _____________________.
4. A ______________ day is _______________.
1. I have seen Whoopee! and Children of a Lesser God on Broadway.
2. My Chinese zodiac sign is the rabbit. No, i'm not sure what that means, if anything. Astrology of any sort has never interested me.
3. Celebrities are just people. It would be nice if they'd all work to be good examples, but they are subject to the same foibles and follies as the rest of us. No, i wouldn't want to trade places with any of them.
4. A good day is one where i still have energy at the end of the day. A great day is when i get a good nap!
