Wide Awake



This song resonates with every fiber of my being at the moment:


Sometimes things in life happen to us that we would never expect. They come out of left field like a dump truck, run you over, and don’t hit the brakes to see if you survived or are even okay for that matter. This is my life right now. I am okay, or I will be. No need to send me a thousand emails or private messages, please. There are just some things people have to deal with alone. This is one of those things and definitely one of those times. 

I don’t have the answers for what happened. I’m not sure I ever will. My heart aches and my soul is on fire.  However, I refuse to let this define me. I refuse to succumb to the sadness.

The anger.
The pain.

I choose to be happy because we all have to make choices. 

I choose to not let this or anything else stand in my way. 

Am I being cryptic? Yes, because what happened to me is just that, it happened to me. This is my fight. 

I plan to win.

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

Introducing a New Cat into a Household

Fostering the Drive

To say I have been busy is an understatement. I have a good excuse. Let me show you:




I have been fostering bottle baby kittens.

I struggled with many things in my life except this. Other than motherhood (which shocked me) I took to fostering right away. Long ago I wanted to travel the world, be a successful writer, and get rich off my crafty etsy side. I dabbled in some of those and quickly realized that I wasn't good at them. I never seemed to have the dedication or the drive to push me further. The will to keep going forward even on the hardest days. But, saving neonate kittens clicked with me. My soul stopped wandering. I no longer search for the legacy I will leave behind. I understand now that saving animals, especially cats has always been my calling.

I still have a long way to go in my journey but I will advocate for these little souls. I will fight to help them have the best start in life and I will learn everything I can as a feline behaviorist to campaign for the rights…
