So many of us have been concerned that pets in the path of the Texas wildfires have no place to go. I got this in my email today from Katie Hunckler of VCA Animal Hospitals and I wanted to share it:

Noah and this new Okey cat weighin’ in on the Nu Campaign

sleeping catsOK. I confess. I’ve been asleep on the job.

Noah didn’t lose any weight this week. He didn’t gain any either, which is good, but still…

He is still at 18.2 lbs. I guess I got a little lazy at bein’ his personal trainer this week.  What can I meow? It’s been a busy week.

BZTAT decided to close her studio storefront and move it back into our home, so that’s got things a little crazy here. She is also openin’ up a new gallery with the great folks at Embrace Pet Insurance in Beachwood, OH, which is very excitin’! You can read all about these developments here.

And then there’s the new cat.

Okey the Parking Lot Kitty is now Okey the Studio Cat. Okey was rescued last week and brought inside the studio.

I haven’t met Okey yet, but BZTAT says she will come upstairs and stay in the extra room sometime this weekend. And BZTAT is talkin’ like Okey might be stayin’…

We are very appreciative of all the folks who donated funds so we could get Okey to a vet and get the works done. She was spayed yesterday, and she is resting comfortably today.

OkeyUp until yesterday (because of the surgery) she has been eatin’ the same Nulo noms we have been eatin’, and she seems to be gettin’ healthier already! Thanks to Nulo fur helpin’ us rescue Okey and get her back to good health.

Oh, yeah. One other thing.
