Mancat Monday: Returning to Work


Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

It was one week ago that my brother-in-law Alex left for the Bridge. One of the hardest things I’ve had to do was tell Sister Gracie that sad news.  Thanks to all of you for the outpouring of love and the kindness of your comments.  Sister Gracie appreciates you so much and will tell you herself on Sister Saturday.

Now then I must return to work, there are kitties to be saved.  Speaking of kitties, we have two new ferals in the yard, a young Momma tabby and her baby kitten tabby.  The kitten looks a lot like me except it has a white bib and white socks.  They have discovered where the food bowl is and are eating quite well.  Nope, no getting close to them, at least not yet.

I tried to keep up with your blogs while I was gone and I hope I didn’t miss any impawtant news or events.  I missed each of you.  Hugs from all of us at Brian’s Home!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

We missed you a lot, that is for sure. Glad to hear that the new feral kitties are eating well. They are probably so glad to have some food. OK, now we need some pictures. MOL Gracie, we hope you are feeling a tiny bit better. We know you are so sad. Sure wishing all of you a really nice Monday.

Oh Brian, I am so sorry you had to break the news to Gracie…. You are such a wonderful brother to have been there for her and helped her during this difficult time. I am sure you love and support helped her greatly just as your dad’s helped me. Please give gracie a big kiss from me….
