Foster Update: Charmee Helps Grade Papers


And then there’s little Charmee.

Charm is helping her person grade papers. That’s very important work.

It also means her person is on the floor with her papers, because Charm likes it that way.

Charm deserves this.

Imagine where Charm would be right now, and her kittens too, if some people hadn’t cared enough to rescue her. She certainly wouldn’t be lying on her back on a nice warm carpeted floor telling her person what to do.

Clean Up This Snow, 2012

“Clean up this snow.”

Mimi is fine with the collar, and even the leash is okay.

But cold, wet paws are not part of the bargain. She did take one step out of the clear spot on the big rock, then got back up on the step.

“You need to get out there and clean up that snow,” she looked up at me and said.

This from the kitty who used to trot all over the neighborhood in all sorts of weather.

To give her credit, she did give it a try.

  • Charmee is so lovely and pretty!
    So happy she has a great home!

    • Charmee is incredible–all her fur has grown back in and now she is old enough to have her full coat. She owns her person, you can tell!

    • Charm loved her tummy rubs! After she was done nursing, of course. But I could not imagine such an affectionate, social, playful kitty being abandoned and living on the street, not able to give her love to a person. Of all the kitties I’ve rescued, it just made me so sad to think about Charm.
