I have had no 'bites' on Annie and Audrey being adopted together. Of course, Christmas is just over and no one has time or the extra money to adopt at that time so I really didn't expect to hear from anyone. They are doing well in our home and have become quite the newest members of our clowder (a group of cats collected in the same place) of cats. The word 'family' really suits my 4 cats better than 'clowder' but it is a term used sometimes. I think it is mostly for feral colonies.
Audrey loves to eat with the big guys now. She just works her way through their legs and throws her face into the first available bowl.
Annie is a little more cautious but then again she is the momma and a little smarter.
I have made a few resolutions for the new year. One, eat healthier. What can be more important than your health. Two, de-clutter my life. I have been working on that for a year now and it feels good. I'm not done and this year I will stay at it until everything that I have no use for has found a new home. It's exhilarating!
Three, help our animal shelter in any way I can. This year was the worst I have seen in the numbers of cats and dogs being given up or abandoned. I have no answers for this except for everyone to spay and neuter. It sounds simple but for some reason it is not heard. I enjoyed my time fostering for them but I won't be fostering again in this house. We discussed it over Christmas and we now have to get our home ready to sell. If and when it does, a new home will be welcomed and if possible, I will plan to do more fostering there. Right now, I have to concentrate on a good, loving home for these two beautiful girls.
So, I have this yummy pumpkin pie sitting on the shelf (go to 'let's talk dishes' for the recipe) and it will be my last indulgence for the season. Back to eating right like the good Lord intended us to do.
