Annie and Eddie’s Adoption Day

Annie and Eddie’s Adoption Day!

Saturday morning Paul and I loaded up the vehicle with a carrier, water and snacks and headed off to Grayson County Humane Society.  Since June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, we decided  we would do just that x 2.  We have a home, and many cats need a home so we thought, we might as well adopt a couple of cuties and bring them into our family.  Annie’s photo grabbed our attention one day while Gracey and I were reading through some facebook posts. I told Gracey that Annie looked like she had spunk.  I like to think that Gracey had a paw in choosing these little cats to come and share her habitat with us.

Grayson County Humane Society  in Lietchfield, Ky  isn’t too far from where our friends and parents of Preston from Prestonspeaks.com live. Preston’s parents Rachel and Brad are so nice they came over to help us celebrate Annie and Eddie’s Adoption Day.  We were all so impressed with Donna and her team at Grayson.  You could tell all the love and care that each and every individual animal was receiving at the shelter.  There are nice big runs for the dogs to get outside and play as well as a big cat room for the felines to enjoy time out of their cages.

Cat Crashes Super Dog Sunday

I got so excited  when Paris from dogtipper.com told me about this great event to help find forever homes for our cousins that I asked if a cat could crash the party and she said, I didn’t have to crash, that cats are welcome too! So I am calling all cats to enter to help our cousins in need of loving homes.
