Last weekend Rick put up his 13th hammock at PAWS. We worried that the cats in the room would be disturbed by the sound of the drill. But, as you can see, little Precious was too interested to be frightened.

Two year old Hope hasn’t had an easy time in her brief life. She was returned to the shelter because the other cat in her adoptive home refused to accept her.

Come, let me clutch thee…
