Man, it's been a long day. I took two shifts at different Petco stores taking care of the adoptable cats.
This morning I filled in at a large store that had fourteen cats and kittens. It took two full hours to clean the playroom, kennels and free roam area. The cats were all very sweet and I got to meet some that I hadn't seen before.
Once I was finished, I had time to go to a friend's brunch and hang out for a couple of hours.
After that, I went home and got online to continue the project I started last night: adding cats and kittens to Petfinder. It's a time-consuming process but very important because it helps them get found by people who are searching for specific cat attributes, and also makes it easier for people who see them in the stores to apply for them.
My husband woke up late, but once he was up and around, I took him out to dinner.
On the way home I went and did my usual Saturday evening Petco shift at a smaller store (five cats and kittens). The younger cats needed liquid medicine and it must have tasted awful because I think more of it ended up splattered on the floor and walls than down their gullets.
Now I'm finally finished and ready to take it easy, watch some TV and have a glass of wine. I think I've earned it.
