Tomorrow we are two days from a new year. For some folks and critters a new year symbolizes a new beginning, a clean start ,an empty slate. For others the new year brings a chance to purge the memories of the past. For Roxie and Jean Claude this year has been quite something and they have had an adverturous and rather splendid holiday season, spending time at my house and at CCL’s house. Although they escaped twice from CCL’s during Christmas dinner – sorry CCL but it was small bag of trash that had to be taken outside. They really seemed to enjoy Christmas dinner with family at CCL’s. Roxie and Jean Claude are a favorite of my aunt Fran who doesn’t like cats but is very entertained by this duo. Yes they performed for her and showed her love and attention, rubbing her leg and jumping on the back of her chair and running across. Animals entertain and love and nuture us. We should show our furry friends love and attention too. Do your part to support the Washington Animal Rescue League – www.warl.org or the Animal Rescue league in your town.
