Volunteering is good for the soul. :)

I think I mentioned this before but I volunteer every other weekend at a local no-kill cat shelter. The rewards or so great you can't even imagine. This week I carried George around in a baby sling while I cleaned. George was born with cerebral palsy but is the happiest cat ever and really doesn't know much better. I clean George's little pen everytime I go and I just love holding him. He feels so good in his little sling...all bundled up and cozy. :) Course his eyes are goobered up here...I should have cleaned them before I took this picture but as you can see, my hands were full! LOL! George is actually the owner's cat. :)

If you haven't had the opportunity, volunteering is so good for the soul. I guarantee you. :)


  1. I send him many hugs & cuddles
    he deserve it :-)

  2. I used to volunteer in a great place for kids, but i could n't do it anymore. You learned about all the cases and i just could n't leave my feelings aside.
    But volunteering for animals would definitely be fun. Here in Greece we have so many stray dogs and cats.

  3. This is great you volunteer with animals. George is adorable.

  4. That is awesome! I worked for my local Humane Society and I LOVED it! I miss it so much!

    Love the picture of you and the horse!

  5. Kudos to you! A wonderful way to spend a weekend! George looks like he is enjoying your company.
