I received this. If anyone knows anyone who might be able to help PLEASE contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hello my East coast friends!
I desperately need some help and am emailing you in hopes that you might be
able to point me in the right direction. My sister has a beautiful black cat
named Andrew. She’s had him for almost 15 years. He is the love of her life,
well one of them. She how has a family of her own and she’s in despair. Her
baby is deathly allergic to Andrew. When I say deathly, I mean it. The poor
child cannot breath when he is in the same room as Andrew. It’s horrible for
all involved because he is more than the family pet. She’s had him since
finding him in the midst of Hurricane Andrew, 15 years ago. She was in her
second year of college and she took him in. He was so young that he hadn’t
even been weaned from him Momma. She had to bottle feed him until he could
eat on his own. You can imagine the attachment she has to Andrew.
Her problem is that she can’t just give him to anyone. We can’t take him, my
parents can’t take him. She’s asked me to contact our kitty network. She
wants to make sure he goes to a good home, one that she’s sure she can
trust. That’s where we come in. She lives in Brunswick, Maine. Any help that
we can offer or any suggested homes that we can come up with, she will
trust. You all know just how much this is affecting her. Poor Andrew is
living in one room of the house until a solution presents itself. Please
help, I’m begging you! You’re my fuzz family and we all do our best to help
each other. Any suggestions are appreciated. The Rainbow Bridge is not even
an option so don’t worry about that. We just want to find him a loving home.
Like I said, he is a senior cat. He’s always been an only cat but does get
along with my parents cats when he visits. I don’t think he’s been exposed
to dogs. He’s very mellow so my guess is that he might do well with them.
Let me know what you come up with. Thanks guys! Pass this on to others in
the FF that you think may be able to help. These are the only names that I
have who live on the East Coast.

Well the new year is almost here. They way I look at it is “its just another day” I don’t think I have ever really been “into” the whole new year thing. As far as celebrating goes. I think it is really cool to have the new year. To see what is to come in the next year. I do like it I’m just not a big party type of person. I was asked by many people if I was going to the sober dance on Sunday. I said no for the reason that I don’t have a sitter and the fact that I probably wouldn’t be able to stay up that late. I don’t know though. People are working on finding me a sitter. I said as long as it is free, then I might consider it. I am just not a night person. My ideal night would be in bed at 7:45ish asleep by 8:30 at the latest. Then getting up at 5:00. That would be good. The best thing would be if the late night shows were on early in the morning or just earlier than 10pm. I don’t like that 9-11 is “prime time” I don’t want to be up that late to see my shows. The tv people should work out a better schedule. Well I got to call Barbie-Lou last night. Clay and Taylor are doing so well. They met face to face and didn’t fight. Sure there was growling and hissing but that is to be expected, but no fighting. So I went to a meeting last night and after the meeting there was a business meeting. I was elected to sell tickets. That means I have to be there about 20 minutes early. I have no problem with that. Well I gave two people a ride home last night. I get to my house at 9:45. I tried to go to bed right away. I ended up not being able to go to sleep until 1:30 this morning. I have my alarm set for 5:45. So you can imagine what was going on there. Well even though I didn’t get much sleep I feel that I managed to get a lot accomplished already. I have also been fighting depression lately. Things have been going pretty well and I should be happy. I just can’t seem to shake this crap. You know what. I think that is enough out of me for today. If I don’t talk to you before I hope everyone has a wonderful new year. Everyone be safe!
I forgot to say Barbie-Lou to you and Bobby I send a big huge thank you. I got your mail the other day and have been forgetting to say thank you. So I am saying it now. THANK YOU!!!!!
I also wanted to apologize for my language yesterday. If I offended anyone I am sorry. I was just in a really bad mood and will try to curb it from now on. Please don’t hate me.

Ok Grr, Midnight and Cocoa you should be venting and upset. Your lady is on vacation she should be home cuddeling not going to work. You are right. Now I have some venting to do. I just found out yestderday that the people in CT got a 500 dollar bonus for Christmas. There are a few things wrong with that. We in RI didn’t get shit. A stupid pizza lunch whoopie do da. If I was in CT like I should have been I would have gotten that. This company is so fucked up. I cant even tell you how pissed I am. I am stuck here doing shit that I am not supposed to and barely doing my job. I am falling so far behind in my work. I should have gotten that bonus as well. I am not trying to toot my own horn but I definately deserve it. I have been doing the job of two people for 2.5 years now. I also have to do the job of the people upstairs. What the fuck. I will be here for three years tomorrow. If I do not get at least 1.50 an hour raise I will be job hunting. I am not going to put up with this shit for too much longer. There is also the fact that everyone else get “special” treatment. They try to get me in trouble and NOTHING happens about that. They have little meetings and don’t include me. They were also the ones who decided what we were going to have for the christmas party, I wasn’t even asked what I thought. I hate this place so much. I just my go job hunting for the hell of it.
Barbie-Lou, sorry I didn’t call last night. We didn’t even get home until 9:30 and everyone was so tired. I thought about calling but I said to myself it is too late. As I write this I just remembered that it is free after 9. Duh! I could have called. I will try again tonight. I also got most of the stuff out to you. I still have to make the CD and get Benjamin’s thing for you. I will do that this weekend. That goes for everyones present. So tomorrow is the last opportunity to get me your home address.

Well I am finally back. We had a four day weekend. It was so nice. We all had a great Christmas I hope everyone else did as well. I feel like I have been MIA not being able to do much from home. I hate the Mac computer. I think in a few weeks I am going to get the stuff I need to get my computer on line. I do not like being away. I am sorry that I have not answered any emails. Here goes. Clay is at his new home. He made it there on Christmas eve. That is the best type of present ever. (I believe) So far it seems to be working out well. I am going to be calling Barbie-Lou tonight to see how things are going. I have not been able to make the gifts yet so please send me your address if that has not been done. I really want everyone to have this item that I am going to make. Barbie-Lou, I was unable to get you mail out yesterday. I will be doing that today. I do not have the thing my son made though. I will send that out probably tomorrow. Well I am off to check all the sites. Have a great day.

Good afternoon all. I was up this morning at 4 am. We left our house at 5 am. Arrived in Boston at the cargo place to get Clay to his new home at 7. We had a kinda a hard time because my son was extremely upset as was I. I was able to control the tears until the time we left. Benjamin could not. The guys that were helping us were absolutely wonderful. I have a number here for anyone who wants to check out the flight progress. It is airway bill number 58839174. The flight number is 1717. Leaving Newerk NJ. I was told just go to continental.com and there is a link you can click to track the flight. Well I am off to check it out myself. I hope everyone has a happy, safe and blessed holiday. I also want to thank everyone for making this all possible.

Ok so here we go. I took the kitty to the vet last night. He was so not happy about the whole experience. Clay had to sit in the carrier for approx 40 minutes. Our appt was 6:30 we were not seen until after 7. So he was not very happy about that. He hates going in the car. Well any way he finally does get seen. The vet tells me he is a boy. So I said then his name is Clay. Well the vet went to get blood work done and Clay was fighting with every ounce of his being. (well maybe not that bad) He was fighting a lot. So they decided to knock him out. They gave him the gas and proceeded to do what they need. They also managed to clip his nails. Figure they would take advantage of the fact he was out. The did the fiv test an he came out clean. He got a clean bill of health. So I am going to call and book his flight for tomorrow morning. I am so excited for Barbie-Lou and family. I would think this the bestest Cristmas present EVER. Ok so my kids already started crying not wanting Clay to leave. I love the fact that my kids are animal lovers but they do tend to overreact sometimes. I try telling them he is going to a good place where he will be loved and taken care of. They know the chance of seeing him again is very small. I know I will start with the water works just as well. So I feel like a hypocrite (sp) telling them not to when I klnow I will be.
I am upstairs in the office today and I am the only one here. So I am going to spend as much time on the computer as I can. There are a couple of the bosses from CT here so I still have to be careful. I am going to try and finish my shopping this weekend. I know the driving and the stores are going to be nuts. Oh well something I have to deal with. Well I guess that is enough out of me. Talk to you soon.
