Fredericksburg Pet Expo
Thank you Melissa, Paul, Melanie and all the volunteers who helped!!!   Hey YOU ... why don’t you sign up to help me out at events too?  I might got to spend the night at your house?  Just drop me an email

Here I am in the morning, getting ready for the Pet Expo.  I stayed overnight with Melissa and I’m Chillin' with the dogs!

Melissa: Hey Opie, when you drank out of Duke's water bowl, did it taste like dog spit???

Pamela Jarrell came to see me at the Pet Expo!

When ever it was quiet for a few seconds ... I did what all good cats do ....

Aunt Melanie thought I should start getting ready for Halloween!

                                                                                                        I’d always rather be pigging out ...

That night I got to sleep in a HUGE dog bed all by myself!!!! It's soooo big that when I stretch as far as I can, I still can't reach the edges!!! Auntie Melissa wanted me to sleep in her bed (which is even BIGGER!), but I was too curious about my new surroundings, and she thought I might fall out of bed, so she put me on the floor so that I could go exploring. But, I got in bed with her this morning -- did you know that hooman toes are much nicer to rub against than doggie toes? Doggie toes move around too much. They are not good scratchers. Then, I started wandering around on the bed -- Huckleberry was getting his belly rubbed, and was in lala land! He was so cute that I licked his head and ears, to help relax him even more!

Melissa’s cats were curious about me. The one named Natasha tried to smack me! But I was not close enough for her to hit me. The black cat, Kimmie, keeps hissing at me! Valen is an orange cat who looks like me, but did not have any white on him. He follows me around, sniffing at me, but has not tried to hit me or anything.

I'm walking all over the place! Even running a bit! There's carpet here, so I don't slip and slide.

Sometimes in the Animal World
.... well maybe most of the time, you should expect the unexpected !!!!  

It’s like working at Rikki’s Refuge .....  don’t worry about preparing for the expected ....  always be in awe of the unexpected and be ready to change course to meet the current demand ....   No matter which animal it’s coming from !!

Thank you for working with us, hand in paw, day in and day out, to care for the critters of Rikki’s Refuge .... we couldn’t do it without YOU!!  Thank you for saving our lives.   Winter is just around the corner ... we’re getting ready to buy winter bedding and stocking the pantry in case of bad weather ....  would you ... could you ... please ... help us out just a little bit?  Every penny counts ... 25 of them add up to feed one of us a meal !!!!
