Fundraiser for Crisfield cat shelter - 2Thanks to everyone who came out for the 2nd fundraiser for the Crisfield cat shelter, held at Mt. Pleasant Church Hall. If you missed this event you missed a delicious breakfast. Looking at all that food, one would have thought IHOP had beamed in a remote restaurant for the morning. Don't miss the next breakfast. Since they were doing take-out orders, I went home with a plate of pancakes. Look below the slide-show to see who enjoyed my left-over butter. Please allow time for slide-show to load.

After finishing my take-home pancakes I walked away from the kitchen and came back to find Skipper enjoy my left-over butter, his way of giving this breakfast a butter-licking 5 stars.
A little while later I found Czarina trying to place an order. Czarina, though a purebred Siamese, was found starving and near death 2 years ago. Looks like she is doing pretty well now. I encourage anyone considering a new cat (or dog) to adopt. If you must have a purebred, put your name on a list with your local shelter (shelters get hundreds of thousands of purebreds each year, many of them end up being euthanized) or do a Internet search for rescue organizations who are breed specific.
Now for some cat (and dog) facts:
FACT: Every 1.5 seconds a shelter animal is killed. That's 192,308 per week or 27,473 pets euthanized every 24 hours, 365 days a year.
