A whole lot of Irish Songs start out with the line "As I Rode Out On A May Morning" and so I was rather excited about it being May, me having a horse and all. You have NO idea the things that can happen to people as they ride out these mornings. Generally involves a river or valley, someone washing something, an old women who turns into a demon, a lot of drinking, and a whole lot of SEX. You can see how I was looking forward to the possibilities.
Well, nothing happened. I mean, I had a GREAT ride. Really fun. Did great. me the canter are one now. No fear. Loveing the friends at the stable. But nothing, well, you know. Like the songs. May however, is not over yet, and I will ride every day. We will see.
The pictures tonight are all Bengals, as Nathilie said her cats were grumpy and could she please have some shots of happy cats to wake up to. That's Venus in the first one, licking her chops, and Magic in the next two. Whole lot of playing going on with that guy tonight. I think he really likes his new room, AND he came to the window when my guests were here tonight and Mewed at them!
Yes. I know. They are on the stove. They like it there. Weird. Good thing I don't cook much here.
Here's one of the Royals, King Lear the Huge, and below, his little friend Queen Mab. They are fosters still waiting to find their Home and their Person. I know this Person is out there, and I will find them. Speaking of Bengals who need help, we have recently heard about a cat hoarder, who had Bengals. A lot of Bengals.
As in about 85.
Sadly, they were siezed (well, good they were siezed, but sad they were in the state they were in.)
Some had to be put down.
About 14 of them have come to Great Lakes Bengal Rescue, and we need homes and foster homes for them. If you live in Michigan or Indiana and can help, please get in touch with GLBR or myself. They are currently in a shelter, but shelters dont' like Bengals, and we are worried they may be put down as well. These are VERY adoptable cats. Sweet loving and they need places. Even temporary places. This isn't their fault, and they are scared, and alone.
We can help them, and will help them. That's what we do. But this is a lot of cats to get at once.
Janet, president of Great Lakes Bengal Rescue says she won't ask you for $$, as she says everyone here has been so very generous, but I will ask. All of these cats need to be spayed, get shots, and tests. We don't take money as Foster homes, but getting them there takes gas. This rescue, I've just heard, is going to cost $3000.
If you can adopt a Bengal, you will be forever grateful. If you can foster, you can't know how good it feels when they find their people. If you have any amount of $$ and can send it, we will Bless you every day.
And I will once again do the Unicorn Song, live, on a webcast, during the Fiend Weekend in June.(Edited to add: Or not. We are now taking donations with votes FOR and AGAINST doing the Unicorn Song Live.)
I can't save them all, but I sure as hell am going to make a difference for a few.
Love and Bengals,
