a walk about town

The wind was cold enough to wear my faux-fur hood today. Kane and I walk about an hour a day. It's a slow walk most of the time with a lot of sniffing (Kane, not me) We walked by a familiar house that always has at least one cat in their window. Today this little one was looking down on us as we turned the corner.
This is the Mississippi River flowing under the Bridge St. bridge. This building was always a residence and a wool shop for years.
Now I believe it is empty. The pigeons & birds have found a warm spot to spend the day.

They certainly have a beautiful town to hang out in.

I received an email from our shelter and I also had a call today from a lady who would like to adopt Audrey. We have been playing phone-tag and I have yet to actually speak to her. I left her a message about her mom, Annie and their bond. She called back again with a message that she would like to talk to me about both of them. She has two cats already and would like to adopt another female but she would consider talking to me about the two of them staying together. Just typing this I am tearing up. I don't need to tell you how hard this will be for me to let them go if this is the right home. I'll be reaching in for all the strength I can muster on this one.

hugs, Deb


  1. Hey! I was in that house about five years ago when it was still a wool shop! Such a gorgeous building. I love the pigeon congregation.

    I know it will be hard for you when Audrey and Annie go. I hope they end up in a wonderful home together. You deserve much credit for taking such excellent care of them.

  2. I am sad just hearing this about Audrey and Annie but happy for them also if this is the right home. I don't know how you let go of these darlings when you have had them in your home so long. Sending you hugs! Linda

  3. I am tearing up for mixed you must feel. Prayers it all works out for the best. Please teach my husband the word PURGE LOL!! Fascinating building! Hugs,Sue and Rosie.

  4. Love the old building, wonderful! Thanks for stopping by, Laura

  5. I imagine it would be quite sad to let go of sweet Audrey and Annie. I hope they can stay together!

  6. Ohhh we hope that she is the right lady to take your precious two girls.

    Keep warm my friends.

  7. I've got tears in my eyes... hoping that this lady is the ONE who will provide forever homes for Audrey and Annie. I'll miss them! Can't imagine how you feel.
