a personal note

The post about Buffy's illness and how I willingly take on special case fosters.. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.  I was trying to pat myself on the back for a life saved.  I don't think there is anything wrong with that, but I fear it came off as an "I RULE!!" type of post, and I so did not mean that.  I think anyone who fosters rules and we all deserve a nice pat on the back from time to time.  A lot of us feel we are doing it for selfish reasons, and maybe we are, but we are all still doing good no matter what our motivation.

So if anyone took that post as my being boastful, please don't.  I there aren't a lot of people in my every day life who don't think I'm wasting my time and resources (and to some extent my life) in rescue.  I was proud of what I accomplished, and I wanted to share.

and, since I'm waxing emotional.. I just read a list of traits of "dog people" and "cat people"

If you are a dog person, you may share or be drawn to characteristics common in dogs. Dogs tend to be:
  • Outgoing
  • Loving
  • Loyal
  • Structured
  • Personable
If you are a cat person, you may share or prefer some of the following characteristics that are common in cats:
  • Independence
  • Adaptability
  • Silly antics
  • Poise
  • Beauty 
I think this is just silly.  Who isn't drawn to loyalty? Or the outgoing, loving personal person.  (I admit structure is one of those divisive traits.  Some people NEED structure, some people prefer free living)  Just as the cat traits are also just as beloved by most people.  Adaptability, silliness, poise (how can those go together??) and beauty.  Very few people would say no, I don't like those traits in people.. (ok, maybe silliness.. but probably just as much that as independence)

Oh well.  Just another one of those odd things in life.
