It may seem like the alcohol cats’ lives have been somewhat quiet this past month, as no blog posts have been written, and nothing has changed except for a new Instagram account (follow @alcoholcats)… but in fact, the exact opposite is true: SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED!
THE BIG NEWS: Myself and the alcohol cats are hitting the road—or rather, the air—and heading off to Los Angeles! Yes, that’s right. As I said previously, my goal was to get a job at Best Friends Animal Society in L.A. and be able to work with shelter animals full-time.
Well, it happened! My new job begins in less than a week, and I will be joining the adoption staff at Best Friends. I am in the process of selling/giving away all my furniture, sorting through all my possessions (of which I have way too many), and making sure the cats are ready for their in-cabin flight.
(Currently, Smirnoff & Bacardi are much more calm than I am, but I’m sure once they’re in their carriers and headed to the airport, all that will change.)
Wish us luck, and I will check back in once we’re settled on the west coast 🙂
A lot of my friends have started running 5Ks. It’s not only a post-graduate trend, it seems, but a way to have some healthy & organized fun. There are races all over Boston, and while I’m not a particularly good runner myself, I’ve often considered joining in.
But while some races throw paint at you, or throw mud at you, or play music at you, or let you dress up in ridiculous costumes, there are also races that are for a good cause, and one of the best causes I can think of: PUPPIES!
Here is one such upcoming event for runners and animal-lovers in the Boston area:
GREAT DOG RESCUE OF NEW ENGLAND 1st Annual 5K
SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2013
9:00 AM (race begins 10:00AM) Tewksbury Memorial High School
