For David’s Speech class, he has to volunteer at a non-profit organization and then do a speech about his experience. Being the out-going people-person that he is (do you hear the sarcasm?), he chose to volunteer at the Friends Of Gypsy Feral Cat Rescue.
So far, he has volunteered eight of his required ten hours over the past three Sundays. He thought his work would consist of helping to socialize the cats, but instead he has been doing a lot of cleaning and grounds keeping as they prepared for an Open House held yesterday. And only in spare moments has he been able to really interact with any of the cats. Even so, he has enjoyed working there and it sounds like he intends to continue his volunteering even after his class commitment is fulfilled. Good for him!
I only had one caveat for David when he told me about the group and I looked over their website. I did not want him telling me about any cats that might need homes! There’s a couple of really cute cats (is there any other kind?) on their website that are up for adoption, but we do not need more animals right now. Two pets in our apartment are just the right number.
This is Penny. A lot of people wonder what breed she is and we tell them she’s a white shepherd mixed with who knows what! She’s a good dog, even if she is afraid of her own shadow.
And this is Copper. She’s a little over a year old and has adjusted very well to being an indoors cat.
So you can see, we really do not need any more animals in our apartment. So I won’t be volunteering with David!
