This blog post is my first. I really could not think of what I wanted to write about. I did just release a new children’s book called I Think I Like You, Cat. It is the second book in the Rescue Cat series. I will write more about that later, but the short version is, my family and I rescue, fix, train, and adopt out abandoned, stray cats. We’ve adopted out 21 cats so far. The Rescue Cat series is a way to help the 17 we still are feeding, training, and loving as we donate 50% of the proceeds to caring for the cats. There are two books in the series so far. I Liked You Much Better When You Were Outside was the first one.
One of my favorite feelings is when one of the cats, after a long hard road of building trust with us and learning that they are provided and cared for, is adopted. What an amazing feeling that is, to watch that now tamed, loving kitty, enter a furrever home! One of the things I’ve learned from this experience is that cats do not trust immediately, but they are a lot like humans. They build trust over time. And once they do trust you, they truly appreciate you. They understand what you’ve done for them. I’ve raised kittens from birth, and they’re so sweet, but a rescued cat, and I’m certain rescued animals in general….they know. They know what you’ve done, and they love you because of it.
Anyway, this blog post was just to “get this thing rolling.” I’ll have much more to share soon!
