A Recap of my first night at the shelter!
10:00pm I arrive. Throw in a load of laundry.
10:15pm Started the Selection Process for my sleeping buddy….These three were in the running, until they treated my bed like a bouncy castle!
10:30pm Rewrote names on the white board (Look at all those fostered dogs! (4 are at my house, but I digress!) And I realize I forgot to write Bear on there! I knew I was missing someone!
Autumn supervises bath time.
11:00pm Blowing Bubbles for Kittens.
11:30pm Switch Laundry. Now, Bed Time! Since Autumn refused to go back into her kennel, she won the prize of sleeping buddy for night #1!
All ready to go to bed!
11:45pm My next door neighbors McD and Spike are blanket thieves!
12:00am The dogs finally settled down.
12:05am Feral Mama cat starts yowling. I think she’s in heat. Reminder to book spay appointment!
12:30am…and then THIS guy started crying. Into my bed he goes!
12:45am Dryer Buzzer goes off and scares the crap out of me.
12:50am Buzzer goes off again. Oh my nerves!
1:00am Give a dog an inch…and they’ll take up the whole bed! I was very squished against the chain link, but at least Autumn was comfortable. We spooned the entire night.
2:00am – despite not wanting to wake everyone up, I sneak to the bathroom. As sneakily as one can sneak trying to get off of a semi-deflated air mattress!
2:05am. Back to bed. Autumn assumes spooning position.
4:00am Brrr…I am cold! Change Angelo thinks it’s a great time to chew on my hand.
4:05am Kitty hears me awake and starts meowing. Shh Kitty!
4:10am Angelo turns his attention to the teddy bear, must taste better than my hand.
4:30am I am thankful for the night lights Karen purchased and installed. Allows me to look around at my kennel mates and see them sleeping contently.
5:00am Back to sleep.
6:00am The blanket thief is awake! Good Morning kisses from Spike!
6:30am lay in my little cocoon for awhile. Dogs are starting to wake up.
7:00am Let dogs outside. Do another load of Laundry
7:10am Put my flowers in a vase!
7:30am Night one of Shelter Sleepover Complete!
