I am always feeding

Recently my brother from out-of-town paid me a visit at the sanctuary. As we walked around happily chatting and catching up, I was subconsciously doing chores with my hands such as stacking dishes, folding blankets, moving cases of pet food, brushing burrs off some raggedy waif, giving out treats and giving out more treats… my list of subconscious tasks is endless.  It took my brother just one visit to point it out, so much so that he wrote a teasing comment on the Haven’s Facebook page: “She is always feeding!”

As you might know, I love my waifs and I spoil them. Many have experienced hunger and neglect and I believe that they were sent to me for a reason, I am to pamper them and that they will never be hungry again under my care. Very Scarlett O’Hara dramatic, don’t you think?

On a daily basis, the Haven’s waifs consume 40 bales of hay, 75 kg of grains, 48 tubs of Whiskas, 24 cans of Fancy Feast, 10 kg of dry cat food and 25 kg of dog food, plus cooked food from the kitchen, no wonder I am always feeding, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

With some many mouths to feed, we rely on the generosity of animal lovers for support, whether through donationadoption or fund-raising events, we are very thankful for your thoughtfulness and compassion.

Excuse me, I have to go do my feeding now…
