Canines, Nats, No Cats
Because we thought we’d be taking a two-day trip to West Virginia this week, we told Homeward Trails we could take bigger kittens last weekend, but no bottle babies until this coming Saturday. We couldn’t ask our housesitter to juggle tiny furballs along with the rest of our menagerie.
As it turned out, there were no bottle babies in the pipeline anyway. And the bigger kittens that arrived last weekend found another foster home. And then Martha got hit with a work deadline that derailed our WV trip. So now we’re halfway into another kitten-free week.
But fear not this drought won’t last, and it will soon be raining furballs. We’re expecting to receive a combined litter of bigger kittens from the shelter in Wetzel, WV. The latest forecast was for seven of ‘em, which would snap us out of late-summer lethargy in a hurry.
Speaking of summer, we went to Nationals Park last Sunday for “Pups in the Park” day. A portion of the proceeds go to the DC shelter. We took Orrie last year, so this year June got the nod.
She was a little overwhelmed by the crowds and noise at first, but settled in quickly. We spent a few innings in our seats…
…and the rest of the game milling around the concourse (which featured overhead TVs, huge bowls of water, and two big patches of lush green sod), meeting and greeting other dogs and their owners.
And it was an exciting game, with a homer by Adam LaRoche powering the Nats to a 3-2 win over the Phillies.
