Good Morning Good News !!!! August 28, 2010

Good Morning Good News !!!!

Good Morning!! It IS Thursday morning? Right? Hmm is time flying again!!!

Everything is GOOD here, busy, but business as usual. No problems, just
lots to do. Thanks to all of you calling and writing to ask if I'm ok
since I've been out of touch for a couple days. Nothing but busy my

SUNDAY TOMORROW (sorry for short notice, been too busy to get my paws on
the keys) 8/29 3 pm

It's a two for one celebration !!!!

Katrina ran the Teens C.A.R.E. program all summer long. Every Thursday
they'd gather here at Rikki's at 8 o'clock in the morning and they'd
work like dogz (not laze in the sun like us smart cats!) all day long,
all the way till 5 o'clock. And YOU know how hot it was all summer
long! This is DEDICATION to the animals - like ME!!!

It was hot and their work was hard and tiring. Not to mention dirty and
smelly. They zipped thru litterboxes - about 60 of them. Pooper
scooped dog runs. Mucked pens. Scrubbed and mopped floors. Cleaned
cages. And best of all fed us!!

It was a terrific program and really helped Lena and the staff out a LOT
this summer. SO MUCH extra work was done over the summer with this
program - we'd like to let the kids know how much they meant to us.

Every animal area here will have a way for the animals to say thank you
with decorations and an activity for them to participate in. Great
games like Who can Feed Vincent the Most Fancy Feast!!!

These teenagers are seriously fantastic people who have done so much for
us and will continue to do great things if we all encourage and support
them. We've also invited their parents and any siblings who want to come
to see what they have been doing all summer.

And Secondly we're adding the Victory Voting for Vincent Party !!!
Congratulations to all of YOU who voted !!!! YOU who made this
possible. So PLEASE come out. And please play Who can Feed Vincent the
Most Fancy Feast!!!

So everybody is invited !!! Come and say Congratulations to all the
wonderful Teens and Voters!!!


PPS If you don't want your Daily Good New, just let me know! A couple
of you have said you only want Hairballs with out the Good News!!
That's ok! Just tell me. I'm here to make you happy, just tell me how!
If Good New don't make you happy - I could always start Bad News, but,
as you hoomans say, why reinvent the wheel - that's what you've got tv
and newspapers for !!!!!
