Did everybody see it?? The last time I, Vanna, wrote, I got a comment! It was from Paula. I had written about Millie, our Main Coone cat, and so Paula wrote about her Maine Coon cat! Isn't that just so neat! I am so happy about that! So everyone go back to my last post and read Paula's comment and then you can also tell me about your Maine Coon cat! And if you have any questions that you would like to ask me, put them in a comment and I will answer them! Well, at least I would if I were going to be here. But I believe that this is the week that my forever family will come to get me and take me home. I'll ask the next blogger cat to answer your questions! If she even knows the answer.
Okay, now about the toys. Well, it's like this. All our human volunteers love us. Right? Right! And I'm pretty sure they all love us a whole bunch! I mean why wouldn't they?! But some of them come to see us more often than others. Some we only see every couple of weeks. I think that's because they have a life, right?! Other volunteers, not so much, and we see them more often. Oh wait, did that sound mean? What I meant is that of course all our humans would be here every minute if they possibly could because that's how much they love us. But some of them have other things they have to do. Understand?
One of the volunteers that we see a lot of is Linda Duckworth. I was so excited when I heard her name because I thought it meant that she is worth a lot of ducks and would bring some of them to us to play with. Well, she does like to play, as you will see. But she hasn't brought us any of those ducks. Darn! Her two cats and one dog are so lucky to have ducks! I bet her husband likes them, too. I'm jealous! Anyway, she comes to see us a lot so I've gotten to know her pretty well. She likes me the best of all the kitties. And since that's the truth, maybe I'll just ask her about those ducks. (I prefer baby ones. The big ones can be mean!)
So she comes here because she has always loved animals, especially cats, right? And she used to be a volunteer at SPCA and was a zoo docent! Wow! Great BIG cats there! She's been coming to see us here at StreetCats for a couple of years now. When she's not here she comforts herself with things like reading, crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, arts and crafts, even horseback riding! She would rather be here than doing any of those things, but she has to give someone else a turn! I mean really! And she does take turns because she is a very unselfish person. I know her well enough to know that!
Oh yeah, you're probably wondering about the title of this blog . . . toys. Well, I have not yet told you the entire truth about Linda Duckworth. And what I have not told you is the REAL, most IMPORTANT reason she comes to StreetCats. Now I must admit I find this a little strange, but to each her own, right?! Okay, here it is. She comes here to play with our toys. No, really! You think humans don't like to play with cat toys?! Well, here, let me show you! She not only plays with them, she counts them. She organizes them, she helps order them, she's even getting them ready for Affair of the Heart which will be coming up soon. We will have a booth there and I bet she takes a bunch of our toys there to play with, too. If you go there, you can see our toys and she might even let you buy some. Because she is, remember, unselfish. Or is it unshellfish? Anyway, you know what I mean.
Okay, here's my proof . . . Linda Duckworth playing with our toys! Ha! Told you so!! Thank you, Linda, for being our helper! Would you still come if we didn't have toys?!
