Meet ME :)
I am Alana,  your chief pooper scooper.  I also write these newsletters, mistakes and all.  Do Facebook, the office work, fund raising, vet runs, supply runs and am the director of the place.  The cat you see in my arms is Harper, my daughters blind cat.  I am actually standing in her back yard at Fairchild AFB in Washington in this picture.   You do not see pictures of me often because I absolutely am not fond of having my picture taken.  I am always horrified at who is this old woman I see in the pictures.  In my mind I am still 30 years old. I told you guys I was going to sneak out for a few days to spend with my daughter before the busiest 2 months of my life begin.  Off to Portland I went.  If you do not travel/fly much.  I discovered something interesting I thought I would share with you.  For $29. on United you can bi-pass to the fast track TSA check in, you do not have to take your shoes off.  CRAZY!!  I was through the line in Portland Oregon ( a HUGE airport) in less than 5 minutes.  The other lines were backed up 6 lines, 30 people deep.   Shows how unsafe we really are.  I am pretty sure most terrorist can afford $29. to bi-pass the long line.
Japanese Garden beautiful in the middle of a big city.
Chinatown
With my daughter inside a submarine.  If you knew how claustrophobic I am you would be amazed that I was down in this tiny little boat. Shudder
One of my favorite parts of the trip, meeting one of our supporters, Valerie and going on a segaway tour
WHEEEEE
I visited amazing museums, ate at food trucks and saw things I had never seen in my 59 1/2 years of life.  Being the type A that I am, I was still answering emails, talking to the vet and in touch with the shelter.  Bill & the staff did a great job of holding down the fort while I was gone. I get asked all the time about why/how did I start the shelter. I will give you the short answer.  Insanity LOL.  Honestly,  my daughter and I volunteered at a local shelter and ran their adoption program for years.   That is where we got our first, second, third, & fourth blind cats.  When we got to that point we saw how desperate the need was and decided to do it right and became a 501.  Here we are 10 years later. So Enough about me :)  Bet I told you a lot more than you wanted to know didn’t I?  
One of the craziest things I have ever seen, a 2 story Target store and look how your cart goes up and down.  WILD!  (For you in big towns with these kind of stores, forgive me, I live in a tiny town of 2000) (Thanks for the picture Valerie!)
UPDATE ON THE CATS
We took Checker to the vet for a check up because he had been losing weight.  When his blood work came back, it showed his white blood cells was low,  Red blood Cells low,  Hemoglobin low, OY VAY!    I called the lab and had them add an FELV IFA test because those results scream that we need to eliminate that first while trying to figure out what is wrong with him.    We knew he is FIV+  but to our SHOCK he came back as FELV+   What???? The vet is coming Wednesday and we are going to test the entire room and retest him.  Right now we are treating his anemia.  Will decide a treatment plan after retesting him.  He is eating.
Major is doing well with his chemo
Sweet Treasure with a sleeping Glen at open house. Treasure’s blood work looks like Checkers.  Low white, red, and hemoglobin. We know he is FELV+  Those results mean there is a problem going on with the bone marrow.  The leukemia is starting to win.  We are treating his anemia, he is eating and does not appear to be in any pain.
Thank you so much to every one who sends the cats gifts from our Amazon wish list!
