Our adventures in Kentucky continue. Today we started the morning off slowly but made our way over to visit the Purrfect Day Cat Cafe. This is a place where you can go and visit with cats that are in need of adoption. You can also get snacks and drinks there as well. You can take the drinks in with you but not the snacks. I know this because I got a bag of their popcorn but couldn’t eat it until after.

Andrew in Love

There is a large open room that has big windows looking out at the street. There people can see you playing with all of the kittens. We were int he kitten room. Both of the kids loved playing with the 22 little kittens that were inside. This model has really been working for adoptions. They have over 1,100 since 2018. They have also raised a bunch of money for the Kentucky Humane Society from the tips alone.

Eva in Heaven

My sister helps out there by picking up the cats and driving them to the cafe. She’s been doing this for a while and really enjoys it. We all had a lot of fun playing with the little kittens. I had to keep remembering to watch my feet because they were everywhere.

Today were were also able to get some time in at the pool. It is a huge pool at their location and it was filled with so many kids. Our kids had a fun time and it was nice to get in and enjoy the cool water. That came in handy because it was a very warm sunny day.

Family at Fox Hollow Farms

tonight we went to Fox Hollow Farms to see a concert, have dinner from Food trucks and enjoy being outside. Eva and Andrew had a lot of fun. Eva enjoying the much and food. Andrew, by making friends and playing games with several kids his age. There were so many kids there. Andrew fell right in with them and had fun running around and chasing after them. It was a great night and we got out of there in time to avoid the major rainfall.

Goodbye Oliver – Thanks for 13 Good Years

Today we said goodbye to our cat, Oliver. Oliver was the reason why we adopted him and his brother Duncan. Oliver looked very much like a cat that Allison’s parent’s had named Kip. Kip was just a kitten when he died in an accident (hit by a car). I loved Kip and I enjoyed spending time with him. I was upset by his passing and so when Allison found Oliver and Duncan while working in the cat room of Petsmart for the North Attleboro Animal Shelter. We had to adopt them together and for many years they brought us lots of joy.

Oliver has been losing weight ever since Duncan died in 2012. In the past six months he had been having bouts of diarrhea. This got worse and worse from once every couple weeks to multiple times a day. It was certainly time to say goodbye. He was clearly getting sicker with no hope of getting better.
