A little light relief....

I have been on nights the last few nights and last night was quite a  challenging one. Very busy with lots of call outs. Tie that up with mother nature throwing in very high winds and many objects like tree branches, recycle bins and rubbish jumping in the way. Plus on the motorway although many signs saying slow high winds a waggon decided to pass me at a far too high speed and almost force me into the barrier, scary stuff.
      At around 4:00 am on yet another call and very tired I and a colleague who I had called out opened the door to a house of a gentleman needing our help and we were greeted by this little one who was so friendly..

                                                          Hello she said... Welcome .....
A spot of catoga..
 
Smile for a picture......
Are you going to tickle my tummy
Pretty please
I am waiting
Pleaseeee
Enough with the pictures
yessss you know you want to tickle this tummy
Go on you want to...
At last, sorry a blurred picture but hard to get and tickle the tummy at the same time.
She was such a cutie and loved the attention. Fair to say I loved it too and it lifted the mood of the shift so much. This little cutie was a stray and 8 years ago the gentleman's wife said she is staying here with us. She gave so much pleasure to the lady who passed away a couple of years ago and the gentleman said he wouldn't be without the lovely little cat as she gives so much love. A win situation for both the kitty and the rescuers I think.
I love meeting the animals of the people I visit and the pleasure they give.
 Hugs Carol

What a sweetie! Unusual for a cat to be so unafraid of strangers. She must have known you were a cat lover!

Oh my, how cute ...

That kitty is a little sweetie. Take care on the roads. It is scary to be out in the storms and encounter some of the idiots who don't allow for difficult driving conditions.

Oh what a little sweetie. Good on you Carol, we know about the busy nights of call ins. Hope you get to put your feet up today and get some sleep.

GJ would be pleased that you got some kitty love.

It's so heartening to know that there are people out there watching and willing to help felines in need. Also, lovely to visit one with her family.

Such a darling kitty girl. So sweet and friendly. Just beautiful! Kitties are a blessing aren't they, Hope her dad is feeling better.
It seems like the worse the weather,the more things go wrong with people. Please take good care of yourself. You must be healthy and well rested yourself to be able to care for others.
