|My mom, waking up with 350,|
plus two cats. I love this pic.
Sadly, my mom is gone...but I've continued the tradition of making animals a big part of our lives. Right now at home we have a rescue cat (he's 16 now, and he's had several brothers over the years, both his actual brother and a few other rescues, but he's the only cat at the moment) and a rescue dog (see his story here) who is a 2-year-old Border Collie mix who could power the entire U.S. if we could figure out how to tap into his energy supply. Luckily, my husband is a runner who takes him on 10 mile jaunts almost daily.
I wish I had a bigger house, a bigger yard, and a bigger income to be able to afford more. If I could, I'd rescue them all. Maybe someday we can have a farm too, that would have enough land to support a lot more. In the meantime, I donate what I can to organizations that help homeless animals.

treats and supplies for cats too
