I bet you were expecting a commercial for Fancy Feast weren't you! RIKKIS REFUGE ORANGE VA USA
Vote every day and tell everyone you meet about voting. You'll be
amazed, when you tell them you are voting to save lives they WANT to
help! Mom went to the dentist yesterday and she told everybody in the
office to vote. They were so excited that Rikki's Refuge was number one
in Virginia and they want to be a part of making it number one world wide!

It's Fursday! If you're furry raise your paw!

Welcome to Autumn! Here's Scout Gatinha in her fall getup!
Send me your fall fashion photo!

Last night was the autumnal equinox -- the beginning of fall -- and a
Harvest Moon.
It was very cloudy and foggy here last night so I only was a glow from
behind the clouds. If it's clear tonight it might still be good. Be
sure to be outside when the moon rises tonight.

Moonrise here at Rikki's Refuge is 6:56 tonight.

It you're out and about, do be cautious, they say strange things happen
during a full moon.

Perseid Meteor Shower Lights Skies With Shooting Stars - Look! Up in the
Sky! Still Sights to Behold Ahead
This video of a Meteor Shower is really worth seeing! I've sure never
seen anything like that or even imagined it could be. Is that what was
going on here last night that sounded like thunder and looked like
lightening but had no rain?

Jan Sinnott has Good news....a slightly unstable client of my vet
decided to euthanize her cat rather than treat its non-terminal
condition (urinary stones)...but was willing to relinquish ownership to
me on the spot. SOOO Abby is now treated and recovering and I have my
first ever "orange" kitty!

YEAH YEAH YEAH Jan, you are wonderful!!!!

Jan also reports, Other good news: At my vet's office there is now a
"Guardian Angel" fund for clients who just can't afford to treat an
animal with a serious need and not terminal. So more little lives are
saved from suffering or euthanasia.

This is something Rikki's Refuge hopes to have enough funding to do in
the future. There is so much that can be done to help so many animals,
non-human and human alike, and all we need to that unlimited source of
funds! That's it. Then so much good can happen!

Well I gotta get back to work!

With all my love,

PS If you don't want your Daily Good News, 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 !!!!!
