Special Announcement: Please leave some comments to give Chrissy hope that this to shall pass.
Stipend n. A fixed and regular payment, such as a salary for services rendered or an allowance.
Image you wake everyday taking care of 246 kitties by yourself in your home.
You world is looking down at a cat litter box so that the kitties under your care live in a clean and healthy environment.
Newspapers reporters and news crews from ABC, NBC & SNN Local News have visited your home year after year , comparing your home to a ‘Bed & Breakfast For Cats”
Your home was featured in the New York Post..
Time after time, the media has said, no odor and your home is spotless and the kitties are happy and well cared for.
All because you work 18 hours a day in and day out.
You lug 660 pounds of cat litter around a day, Cleaning up, moping, vacuuming and feeding the kitties takes all of your time away from family and friends.
You need help but how can you get help when the County you live in banned all your volunteers from helping ?
The love for the kitties under your care keeps you going but than, you are tried, hope is seems to be fleeting .
What to do ?
Well Chrissy and I have decided that we are willing to pay out of our pockets a small stipend to get the help Chrissy needs tot take care of the kitties.
Her grueling schedule commands that she can not do it by herself anymore.
The last time I checked this is America and people pay other people to take care of their pets.
So we are doing the same. So please call me if you want to help Chrissy out.
If you have a few hours to spare a week ,please call me at 941-623-8904 to set up an interview.

Today was a long one. I’m still at the Thrift Shop. I had a CSP kid start at 10am.
Good worker. I thought I had him all day but he got a job and had to leave at 2pm.
He unloaded the Van and I was stuck with sorting it out all day long and I’m just finishing up.
On the bright side now we have a nice clean Van and new stuff to put out on the tables.
Josh is going to start putting the Video Games Systems together on Tuesday.
We lose money when people want one and they are not hooked up.
Now that the Thrift Shop is easier for me to handle.
I will started another 5,000 dollars fund raising Campaign and lots of smaller one on Causes, during the day.
I did buy an planner book and all the stuff to get myself better organized
You know I’m good at making up slogans and sayings. Here is a new one.
I had to call up My “ Positive Posses “, today.
Cause I did not understand once again “Why” people have to act like they do, when it comes to animal rescue.
I was told basically the same thing from the “Positive Posses” - “SHUT YOUR MOUTH AND DO YOUR JOB ”.
I know that I have to keep the focus on Puffy Paws and not get warped up in dysfunction.
Than six hour latter a supporter of the kitties came to the shop and said
“ I really enjoy all the new administers girls posting on facebook because you were going off for a while”.
I said “Yeah I know” and I told her its hard being on the front-line and I get emotionally
out of control sometime because we are dealing with kitties heartbeats”.
I know in my hearts of hearts there is a time and place for everything.
I will let you know the good & bad & the ugly when it is appropriate.
Today was not the day because things are going as according to plan.
So I sucked it up and we got a lot done today and I will be working through out the night.
God Bless Everyone ! Even that Tiny Tim kid. MOL
