Today saw me go to Animals in Need for my 2nd volunteering morning! I didn’t know where I would be but it turns out I was cleaning and feeding the rqbbits and rodents. An easy feat, I thought, owning 5 myself! Well… my back tells a different story.
I didn’t capture all of the animals, just a mere handful, as I lugged around cages cleaning them and making sure the furry lil ones were all ok. I can’t say I didn’t fall in love, I did. Several times over.
Some were indoors, some out… all really depended on innoculations and the like. All of them were super friendly, one took a liking to my leg, others followed the brush with every sweep.
That cat there kept nudging my head and wanting a fuss every two mins, she’s a resident and SO cute! Although I was warned she would quite happily swipe my face off, she just seemed to want some fuss. So cute.
I also cleaned out a couple of Rats. Was a bit nervy, they were lovely tho, very timid and really just wanted to hide! Cat say I blamed them.
Then there was this chap:
His named is Jake, a 10yr old tri colour Collie with one blue eye, one brown. Ugh it was love at first sight. My old dog was called Jake, also a tri colured Collie, I call it fate he would have to come home with keep, sadly Simon thinks we have too many pets and my pleas fell on deaf ears. I’m sure Jake will find his forever home, his owner had to go into a home so he is probably a little lost. Everytime I walked by he ran for his toy and dropped it for me, such a cutie.
The shelter owner added me on FB and thanked me. Which I thought was lovely, and now I’m in Kennels next week. My heart isn’t sure it can take it, but we will give it a go.
