We have three cats. Purrcy, Wilson, aka Wee Willie, and Elvis. Two of them have special diets. Purrcy is overweight, and Elvis has Kidney disease. We purchased three “chip” cat dishes. Each of the boys have computer chips embedded on them. The bowls have been set up so only the correct “chipped” cat can open the door. The cat enters his neck under the little arch and the door opens only for him. Therefore Purrcy can’t cheat and eat all his food and his brothers also. And Elvis gets his special kidney food and Willie gets normal cat food.
But they CHEAT! Elvis will open his door and when he walks away Purrcy will quickly enter and eat the rest of his food. They have conspired against us by using kitty team work. Now I have to stand by and referee meal time so everyone gets only his food.
It was a little after 7:30 am. We were about a half hour late. She always liked to get started early on her twice daily walk. I told her the radar indicated that the rain would be here shortly. I could tell by the look she gave me that she couldn’t wait. So off we went. Sure enough the rain started about five minutes into our walk. Ten minutes later it was a delude. She wasn’t happy.

I know my my time is coming to an end. I can hear him shouting in the distance. Once I escaped I kept quiet as I ran through the tall grass enjoying my first taste of freedom. But nightfall is going to be my downfall. I’ve never been outside after the sun has set. I see the headlights of his car closing in on me. I am ready to return. There he is! I know I have caused a great deal of trouble.
He should have thought about that when he took my leash off.
This a picture of Mercedes with her Shelter Buddy (me). As a shelter buddy I take a dog home with me for a few hours or go shopping with them in the car. It gets them away from the hectic environment of the shelter. Plus it’s good for me too! Mercedes has since been adopted. Yea!
Below is my newest companion. His name is Zeus. He is a male pit bull that will celebrate his 9th birthday later this month. He will have a hard time finding a home I believe. 9 year old pit bulls are not on the top of the list for adoption. He’s a good old guy.
