Yesterday I promised to tell you about a funny dream The Mister had
about me. First a little background. I've been known to do big projects
around the house on a whim, single-handed. He has come home from work
to find the furniture rearranged or the paint on the walls
a different color. One time he dreamed that he was leaving
to go to work, walked into the garage and stepped back in to get
his keys, only to find that in those 5 seconds, I had already
removed the cupboards from the kitchen walls! hahaha.

We had been talking about my project of befriending the neighborhood
stray cats and getting them fixed and that today, February 9th, was the
next monthly clinic. I wanted to take 5 more cats and made their appointments.
With that on his brain, this is what he dreamed...
We lived on the beach and I had opened up my own animal shelter
right next door to our home. And there was a hill between each
property. The Mister was at home and I was at work in the shelter.
I, being the animal whisperer that I am, could tell stray animals to
go over the hill to our house to stay and get something to eat.
So, I called him on the phone and said, "Hey, be on the lookout for a
miniature horse I just sent over there!" His jaw drops! Still on the phone,
he looks out the window toward the hill. Sure enough, a miniature horse
is plodding along toward the house! "Oh, and a pack of dogs!", I add
in a very matter-of-fact way!
That's when he woke up with a start!
Poor man. I wonder if his subconscious is worried
I really will do something like that!
But don't think he doesn't like the critters around here. :)
This morning I had 4 kittens who eagerly hopped into
carriers in search of treats. Easy peasy. But no mama Velvet
to be seen! When I took the kittens in, the people at the
clinic said if Velvet should show up later this morning, I could
still bring her up until 12:00 noon. Well, wouldn't you know,
she showed at 11:40! Just in time to be lured into a carrier
and off we went! When I told them that I still haven't
been able to get near her to pet her after 2 years,
the lady wrote "WILD" on her papers! lol....

Everyone did fine and they are still
under anesthetic..under the dining room table.
They will be good as new in the morning.
Meanwhile, Dr. DoLittle is on call. :)
