New Staff

I admit, its been a while, what can I say, I was enjoying my time on the towel.

Some of you may remember, they put me on diet food. I have not actually lost any weight, but its not my fault! We have a few new staff members, and they keep eating my portion, so they have to just put a bunch out and know how it goes. Let me introduce them to you:

There's the new secretary, Audi.

She loves her job, especially papers and pens and keyboards and telephones. Some would say she works a little too hard. The humans often worry she's over doing it when she tries to help them, you know, by pushing the keys for them, or complimenting their hand writing by rubbing the pens as they write, and they often have to force her to take some time off in the adoption area.

In the Adoption Reception is Nicky, Unofficial Office Cat.

He's unofficial, simply because, like Audi he, is still up for adoption. He's a good guy, and he stays on his he should. He's super friendly with the humans and loves laps, and to be held, great with little kids. Him and Audi are both chatter boxes, and prefer the company of people to cats, no fighting with fellow cats or anything so dramatic, they just like people :)

Normally, I would think such fine workers would find no problems getting a new assignment working from home. But the economy has been really hard, even on us. Finding those working from home positions went from being hard to get to nearly impossible to get for the adult population of our center.

The humans here are trying to help us, and putting together an event that brings together no-kill, not for profits from Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach county. Most people don't even know we exist! Its the first time they're putting this kind of thing together, so they thought they'd start with cats and small animals. I hear there are going to be ferrets and guinea pigs, too, I guess they need love, too. :) You can see more info

Its going to be at the War Memorial Auditorium, in Ft. Lauderdale, June 20, 9AM-6PM.

There's a lot of work to be done, time to get off the least for a little while :)


  1. We're glad you have some good help, Tom! But we also hope that Audi and Nicky can find homes too!

    Mom thinks Nicky is pretty handsome!

  2. I sure hope Audi and Nicky find their perfect Forever homes soon. They deserve it!

  3. Welcome back, Tom! We have been wondering and wondering where you are! We'll be moving from Missouri to Broward County, this summer:)

  4. We hope things go well at your big event. Mom and Auntie El are always vendors at the big cat show at the War Memorial in October. Maybe we'll see you there sometime.

  5. Good luck on your event! How can it not be successful with such pawsome help?!?!

  6. So nice to meet your new staff members! They look like lots of help!!

    Best of luck with the big even coming up. Sure hope it's a great success!

  7. Hi, Tom!

    Come by D'Artagnan's blog - he wants you to be a musketeer!

  8. It's great to meet you all. We hope the event went over very well. Thanks for the share. We hope all you little ones found or find fantastic forever homes. Have a great one.
