kittens?

Michael and Heather Bruce
 

I know most of you are dog lovers (only), but......in case........there may be a cat lover out there. A friend who fosters dogs, fosters cats and kittens as well from time to time. She is desperate and asked me to throw this out to our dog friends IN CASE they know anyone that would be willing to take in one or two of these little guys....her house is soon to be full. Here is what she wrote to me:

SAME time as last year, right before the 4th of July. Kittens in the bushes. Four, possibly five. 
I will be out tonight to bait some traps as they are too squirrely and afraid to be picked up, but very hungry and not looking well. 

I know you know a lot of dog people, but do you happen to know anyone that is : a cat person, close to or near Skagit county, stuck at home bored, may want to foster/tame/socialize one or two kittens? They actually come around faster in pairs or individually. I have the three 12 week olds incoming from California this weekend (of course) and don't know that I can take on SEVEN total. I could, but I might officially lose my mind! 

I have posted on social media as well. Apparently the rescue I foster for has lost some fosters this year, which is tragic. Just job/life situations that don't allow for fostering anymore, but these little ones definitely need help. There's the option of just TNR'ing them, but they deserve a chance at a good life and are young enough to be helped. Feral life can be terrible.

Please share the word.

Cushings Disease

Michael and Heather Bruce
 

Hello, RATsters,

I've been contacted by someone that has just gotten the news that her dog has Cushings and she would like to know if anyone has any particular advice or medication that they would recommend. She is working with a vet, but doing research as well. I promised her I'd write to you all. You can reply to me privately at abi8@...

I hope you are all doing superbly. I am currently fighting a slight jealousy attack because of Sally & Len's absolutely charming and cute new puppy, April Dancer.

Just watched the 2020 Virtual Double Digit Dog Parade, and wow, wow, wow!
Loved it, liked how each dog strutted their stuff on leash up and back so we had a good look at them, loved the names, titles and handler info. Loved seeing the beautiful backyards
Tears flowed for the especially older ones and also the ones who have gone over the rainbow bridge, what a wonderful, loving, group of people that I am thankful to be a part of. 
I can tell we all love our dogs and the agility sport we do with them. 

I missed the deadline to send my Chace information, he will be 14 at the end of August 
Doing well and loves life and is active every day whether it be running in the backyard,
stealing ripe strawberries out of my garden, going for walks in the small dog off leash park, and most favorite; riding in the shopping cart with Casper at hardware stores!
I will for sure include him next year as he continues to be well. 

Miss you all, can’t wait to see you in person soon at an agility trial!
