Skunk the Cat here and I’m hoping you can give me just a second to catch my breath. And I know what you’re gonna say. “Come on, Skunk. It’s been awhile since we heard from you and we’ve been more than patient.”

And you have. And I am grateful. But there’s also a very good reason I’ve been MIA. 

It all started when I got that awesome box for Christmas. That put me into more of a “attempt to be pensive/sleep a whole lot more” mode. That box is just so darn awesome.

But then about 2 weeks into the New Year, Alanna comes stormin’ into the garage all out of breath. Now this is something I’ve grown use to. Especially when she’s coming into the garage right after she’s chased me down the driveway- ha ha ha.

This was different though. See she came barreling in and it was like she didn’t even see me. No pets, no love, not even an acknowledgment that my favorite ball and string toy were out of my reach- such a small thing, Alanna.

That wasn’t the worst of it though. The next day she came in for one reason and one reason only- to put me to work. It seems we’ve been REALLY short on help around here at the Sanctuary and I’ve been drafted to pitch in on the the chores.

I ask you- is this the face and paws of one who should do dishes?

So if there is anyway that you could help us out? Alanna asked me to share these awesome suggestions:

  • come to the Sanctuary and help with cat care- we cats are messy and sure do like to eat a lot

  • join our Raffle Committee- and the best part is you don’t even have to be local to do it- we need a lot of help searching for and applying for online corporate donations

  • help at one of our weekend donation drives- if you’re local to the Agawam, Ma area but only have a little time to share, join us for a Saturday morning/early afternoon donation drive at Dave’s Soda and Pet Food City. Or- host your own donation drive- yeah, that would be sooooo cool!

Pawtom line- we need your help! Especially me- because if I have to wash one more dish.....ahhhhhhh!!!

So if you're interested, please contact our righteous Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa Carney. She told me the best way to get ahold of her is email at comes Alanna now. She must want to tell me what a great job I've been doing around here. Sweet!!! 

Hey wait- what's that? A BROOM??? What??? No way- come on- Ughhhhh

So this is Skunk signing off- I guess I got more work to do. So until later-
