Oh Oh ....  Tony found a problem

Tony is Rikki's Staff Manager.  But that's not all he does.  Tony has to wear lots of hats.  You know we have to take care of animals and do things like feed them and clean for them.  But there's a lot more to do too.  Like make sure the water is running right.  No matter what goes wrong, it's gotta get figured out and fixed.  When you live in the country and you have a well .... you can't call 1-800-WaterAuthority to come fix your problems !!!

And Tony and Big Boy set out to find the water problem today.  And they found the problem was a pipe broken underneath a spigot at Feline Fields. 

And that means a LOT of digging up.

Three feet down.  And it was HARD digging.  Things had been frozen so hard and for so long ....  the ground a bit down is STILL frozen.

Look at that !!!   Two shovels broken trying to dig !!!

And Tony didn't let that hard work stop him .... he kept right on going till he got down to the broken pipe !!!!!   Meanwhile ....  everyone else had to carry water in buckets to fill all the water bowls !

Got a spare shovel out in your garage?  Bring it on down to donate on Saturday at Donation Drop Off !!

Lilth Lori has found a favorite friend

She loves her toy so much, she won't curl up and go to sleep without it.

Today is day four at Rikki's .... and Lilth Lori continues to get more relaxed and friendly by the day.  She doesn't understand quarantine and why she can't come out and play with other kitties.  Only 12 weeks old, and she's spent her entire captive life living in a cage.  Luckily it won't be much longer.  Soon as her two week quarantine is up, she'll be allowed out and able to make kitty friends too !!!

Nighty night you all !!!

Love, Opie
