Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Wild Irish Ringo

I just had to share this great picture with you.  This is my sister's cat Ringo on the e-mail card she sent us today.  Isn't he a handsome boy?  My sister's husband found him half frozen at an apartment complex several winters ago & rescued him.  He's now living the high life & being spoiled rotten along with his 3 feline siblings.  Among his many talents is leaping from the kitchen floor to the top of the refrigerator in a single bound!  He can do the same on your shoulders too.  Don't you love that shamrock lamp he's posing by?  Matches his green eyes!

Speaking of cats, as of today my daughter Kayla & I are official Foster Parents now!  We had our little training session at the Humane Society, paid the license fee & in another week or 2 can start fostering little furballs.  I'm both excited & a little anxious.  My only concern is the stress it may put on our resident cats.  Even though the fosters will be in a room of their own for the majority of the time my kitties will still know they are there invading their home.  I think they'll do ok.  We'll just have to see how it goes.  I know it'll be so rewarding knowing we're saving lots of little furry lives!

Top of the day to ya!  Are you wearing GREEN?

Ringo is a total cutie!!! Sounds like he is quite the acrobatic jumper too :).
I am excited to hear about your upcoming fostering. I hope your kitties will adjust well to it!
Purrs,

Did you recognize that lamp? It's the one Mom bought me at that little Irish store in Lee's Summit? I still love it as much today as I did then!
I always knew Ringo would be a star! Amazing he sat still long enough for me to take this.
Slainte!
