Dear Whitey and Friends,
It’s been a rainy week so my adventures have been inside. In fact it was Helen Keller who had the outside adventure this week. She brought the excitement home to me.
There were toys involved so I was all happy.
She got to go to Cat Depot. A special friend spent some smoochy time with her in the gift shop. She’s such a girly girl.
Sometimes Helen Keller gets a little scared in different places because she doesn’t know where she is. It looks like this was a nice quiet moment for the two of them.
Next stop was to visit someone we both know. Miss Marianne came to say hi to her. I know your mom works with Miss Marianne now doing the adoptions at Cat Depot. She’s such a nice lady. She brought a gift to Helen Keller and she sent one home for me.
I had to help her open the package and find the toys. She does everything I do but I have to be right next to her so she can feel me.
Can I tell you something confidentially?
I took advantage of the fact she can’t see. She got this foil ball in her bag and its my favorite toy. I took it and put it in my bag.
I know it was the wrong thing to do and I do feel ashamed. But it was a foil ball – I couldn’t help myself.
She got to have everything else and she’s happy. I take really good care of her.
Since she’s come to us, I have a real purpose to my life. The struggle I went through for all those years is now worth it. It taught me that no matter what hardships we have, there is always someone who is needs more.
My someone is Helen Keller.
A friend gave me a quote by Mark Twain. It says:
“The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why.”
I was born to take care of my Helen Keller.
Humans can use that quote, too, and they can find their purpose may be to dedicate themselves to helping animals.
Wouldn’t that be great?
See you next week.

Hi there, Bowtie!
I understand about the foil ball incident…I won’t tell a soul that you took it out of Helen Keller’s bag!
I have a huge foil ball that I hide from Daisy Doodle and Harley. It is very special to me.
You are doing a fantastic job taking care of Helen Keller. I think you are falling for her…I see that look in your eyes. Be careful dude, you haven’t known her that long.
My Mom says she loves working with Miss Marianne, Miss Nancy and Miss Sue. They do a great job getting kittens and cats adopted every day. Did you know they have 34 new residents that came in last week? I’m getting my friends and my Mom’s friends to donate food for them.
This rainy weather has me down. I like to play on the screened lanai, but it’s too wet out there. My Mom saved the day when she put my scratcher bed on the lanai for me to sit in. She even served me dinner there!
Keep up the good work, Bowtie. I know Mighty Lou is watching us and sending us good vibes!
