A New Chapter

 I have decided to begin a new chapter in my life and to be honest I am not sure why I haven't done this sooner. I think it must have been the lack of time. Now, I have extra time and I have chosen to follow my heart.

My writing still comes and goes. I am working on a project, but not actively. I haven't found a way to get back into it full time and if I am being completely honest my heart hasn't been all that into it the last few years either. Besides the craft of writing and my family there is a huge part of my heart that can do good elsewhere.

Cats.

Yes, you read that right. Cats. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am a crazy cat lady. My husband might have cut me off at only owning three, but my heart is too big to only love just my furbabies. I want to love and save them all. Ever since I was little I would always be bringing stray cats home begging to keep them. I've had cats my entire life. Special needs cats, grumpy cats, normal cats, shy cats, you name the type and I have had one like it. Each and every one is or was special in their own way and I have been forever grateful for the experiences they taught me not only about them but myself.

That being said, I have had tremendous amounts of experience with all types and breeds of cats. I have decided to offer my services as a cat behavior specialist to my local area. All of my friends and even in some cases, friends of friends, call me for advice. I have watched Jackson Galaxy's "My Cat From Hell" show and been told so many times, I should do that.

Well, now I am. I am doing it because like Jackson, I have a gift. I understand cats and how they can change a single person's life in so many ways. I get that they aren't always perfect, but neither are most humans. We all cohabit this earth and I want to do my part to help more cats not only find their forever homes but keep them too.

For Mooshu and Luna the two sweetest angels that changed my life in so many ways.


For the love of cats,
Bonnie Rae

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…
