Good Morning Good News !!!! March 17, 2015

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to YOU !!!!!!!

I hope yours was as wonderful as ours !!!!!

Something happened today that we’ve been waiting for a long long time !!!!!

They came to turn our electricity off this morning.

UH OH .... glad we don't got an electric can opener .... and glad it's gotten warm.

But WHY???

It's not cus we didn't pay the bill --- so don't worry about that.

We're finally upgrading the 9th Life Retirement, Assisted Living and Psychiatric Center's electricity. And that means ALL the electricity on the Refuge !!! Currently we only have 60 amps .... and if you know electricity ... you know that ain't much !!! That's not in one circuit ... that's on the WHOLE PROPERTY !!!!!

We can’t run two heating pads for sick patients in out hospital at once.

We can't even run those nice water bowls that keep things from freezing .... too much power ....

If you try to warm something up in the microwave so somebody sick will want to eat it .... and somebody turns on the hair dryer to dry somebody who just got a bath ..... BAM all the power goes out !!!!!

Life's been primitive at the old farm here

!!!! It's been years and years we've been hoping to be able to do this upgrade. And now it has happened !!!

The power is off ... the electrician is doing his thing ..... all paws crossed that it's all ok and we can connect da new power SOON !  Kiki stands guard to make sure they don’t leave till all is well. 

Uh oh ..... parts is needed

Time to ring the lunch bell .....

Thank you MIKE for driving all the way to Pennsylvania and back for a load of donated nums !!!!

Platter-pus ? ...  23rd species ?

We're looking for a few good folks .... folks who have trouble defining the line between hooman animal and non-hooman animal ...... those who care deeply about and identify with all species .... those who are willing to work hard, those who are willing to get dirty, those who are willing to be there for the animals of Rikki's Refuge.

If you're very seriously dedicated to caring about the animals in the most serious way, if you're truly dedicated, if you are driven to make the world a better place ..... we need several new team members at Rikki's Refuge Sanctuary ..... full time paid positions, rewarded with a lot of love from the 1300 animals of 22 species you'll be caring for.

Sorry I’m late (NOT), I slept in ...... again ....  

Why the laundry is never finished

Today was a WONDERFUL WARM SPRING DAY !!!!!    A purrfect day for sunbathing !!!

Thank you RON for the lovely new sign !!!!

All done! Cept for a hole we gotz to cover. And da green stuff wez got pay ..... uh oh ...Is dat gonna be my job? You want help? www.RikkisRefuge.org/Donate ... Love, Opie

Duke makes the rounds and comforts the hospital patients

Seriously?  You don’t expect ME to get a job to pay for this new electricity, DO you?
