We only ended up walking dogs briefly, because they were being a little bit difficult today. Like, snarling at the other dogs, making a break for freedom when we opened their kennels difficult (that wouldn’t have been so bad had there not been four dogs to try and push back in).
Also, I at least was a little confused by the system they have set up to tell you which dogs to walk. It’s a chart that says, like, which ones are sick or potentially dangerous or have already been taken out or for some other reason should be avoided by volunteers, but then you have to go back and forth between the chart and the kennels to figure out which ones are which. I guess it’s not actually all that complicated, I just didn’t look at it very hard.
So then we pretty much spent the rest of the time picking out kitties to hold and pet. And they were all sooooo cute and sweet! We played with the two who were spotlighted for having been there the longest, and I honestly have NO idea why they haven’t been adopted. One of them is gray with a white belly, and the other one is gray and brown and SUPER soft. They were so adorable and friendly, and really I just want to take all the kitties home. But I can’t. Can’t have every cat :/
Ooh, and there was another pair of kitties we took out that were a lot of fun. They were both really big, like probably around 15 pounds, and super fluffy to boot. There was this cat ladder kind of thing on the door of the room we were in, and it was kind of a combination of funny and scary whenever they would get on it, since they were so big that you could see it shaking like it might not hold them. And then they both decided they wanted to be on at the same time. It held, thankfully, but we were all a little leery.
So that’s been my cuddle-tastic day so far! I must say, playing with kitties and puppies is not a bad way to spend a couple of hours. But now I have to try and make myself be productive before fencing tonight, since I have to get ready for kindergarten tomorrow. See you guys next
