When Tucker went missing, I vowed to complete a list of things if we got him back. Since we were reunited, I've been honoring that list. The first item was to donate to a cat in need. We did that right away. I won't say where I've donated, but I know it will be appreciated.
The second thing was to make some cat beds for the local shelter. I visited there every day and was reminded how traumatic it can be for kitties in cages. My grandma had given me a new blanket to "do something with." I cut it and made it into cat beds!
Tucker approves of them. We also included some ping pong balls for toys, and some of our dried catnip.
When I went to the shelter to deliver everything, two of the staff members asked about Tucker. It was a thrill to be able to share our good news. :-)
