An open letter to Englewood

 An open letter to Englewood -  For all of our great supporters we love you. You get it !!! You are special and the kitties know it. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

But for the rest of you, I  never got that turn the other cheek thing down. I never got that count to ten before you speak, like my Grandmother used to say. I’m a blue collar guy doing a white collar job. I always thought the customer was always right. I do not accept excuses from store mangers about your employees bad behavior. The kitties are your customers they spent $125,000 last year in your Town. This is called money and a portion of it goes to your paycheck. Without customers , how would you get paid ?

I will stand up for my wife when you disrespect her . I will let you know that your behavior is inappropriate when you do.  I’m missing that  meek chip that I should let you use me for a doormat at your will.

If you want to know something about me -just ask. Spend some time with me and I will let you know all about me, the good the bad and the ugly. 

If I offended you because I stood up to you and told you the truth and refused to accept  your bad behavior towards, Chrissy, the kitties and myself. I will offer no apology  but if I’m wrong I will admit it and offer a apology and a solution. 

My name is not the Catman. it is Richard Joseph Kingston III , but you may call me Rick.

You call me an asshole behind my back. Nothing escapes  me in this Town. The kitties have friends that you do not even know about.

You spread lies, gossips and rumors. When I meet you in public and I introduce myself as Rick with Puffy Paws Kitty Haven.

You face sours and you say "I Heard About You " !!!

Really !!   - I guess you are the kind of person that believes everything you hear...Poor Sheep !!!!

But let it be know that I can close my eyes at night and sleep well knowing that I have devoted my life to the voiceless animals and  helping  people in need.

I guard your kitties that you gave up to us with my life.

You abandoned them like a Dead Beat Daddy  offering no support through out the years and you except the whole world to pay for a lost family member.

You never got the pets are not disposable - they are for life. By any means necessary.

Thank God - Chrissy and I did.  Or you cat would have been whacked at the any traditional Humane society.

Than you support the others animal  organizations in Town because that is the cool thing to do.
It cool to be seen at all those parties !!!!

If you still want to talk about me. Let it be known that I’m brutally honest with myself and my own defects of character , my past mistakes . Man up and talk to me one day.. I will tell you all about them.

But the most joyous part of my life is while I go through out my day - I laugh - I cry -  I Yell - I scream  - I give it my all with my blood sweat and tears - than I sing - I dance - I tell bad jokes and 200 kitties are alive because of my style 

I’m Living My Dreams - Are You ?

Co Founder Puffy Paws Kitty Haven
