CVAS Sunday Scoop – with Purrcy

11148649_816406741775964_8912806202728512232_nPurrcy Here!…And another wonderful Sunday Morning to you! It was another busy week for me at the sanctuary, I just do not know what Becca and Nancy would do without me.

First I want to you to know that I spent a lot of time on my Red Blanket as it was important for me to be ” large and in charge.”

13285_816406981775940_5847781839534773486_nI have become very proficient at filing – an ongoing job requiring extreme accuracy. I have rearranged the files so the letters C & K (Cats & Kittens) always come before D (dogs). It has been a little difficult teaching Becca the reasoning for this but she is SLOWLY catching on.

On Wednesday we got a call from Sherie at Walmart. There was a stray cat that appeared very terrified that had wandered into the store. It ran back out and hid behind the big box of water melons. We were asked to please come and catch it! Becca and Nancy loaded up a big dog crate and nets to catch this poor scared cat. It was not an easy job but finally – success! The big fear was that it would be struck by a car in the parking lot. We want to thank Walmart for allowing us to disrupt the people thumping the melons and the employee for wanting to keep this cat safe. Please note that Becca sent me to the table by the sanctuary door so I could make sure it would be open when they carried the crate in… Purrcy at work again!

He won’t let anyone touch him yet so we are giving him a few days to settle in. He has not eaten yet so we are keeping a close eye on that situation. Actually we do not know if Wally is a he or a she!

11053931_816407825109189_793654932578037897_nOh yes, you all heard about our transport to Seattle Humane Society. They took 16 cats and what was so great is that they were looking for adults as well. Susan D. sure knows how to pack her car with all these crates. Good job Susan!

I just want everyone to know that we still have one of the most wonderful dogs that is waiting to be adopted. Ali. A dog who will be loving, loyal and gentle. Alie likes to come into the basement to talk with me once in a while. I pointed out that the mop bucket was getting ready so floors could be mopped, did he want to help? That created a fast retreat!!!

Whew..thank goodness this week is over..Purrcy Out!
