Inside the house, I've been having a conversation with the monkey while I relax with some coffee before starting a busy day. I'm giving her the low-down on what NOT to do while I'm away from the house.

Have a great day and stay cool. I am off to care for a brown tabby, orange tabby, orange and white, 3 greys, a cream coloured pretty boy, a torti and a gorgeous white. The cat-bag is full and so is the gas tank.
If you are in the area and would like to adopt a cat or dog please take a look at the website of the
Lanark Animal Shelter in Smiths Falls http://www.lanarkanimals.ca/. They have many beautiful, socialized cats and kittens up for adoption.
