The true meaning of rescue

Originally posted on Gardens For Goldens:
When a dog arrives at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue, they are welcomed quietly and typically allowed to run or roam in one of the large yards to de-stress and acclimate to their new environment.

Tasha the Fairy Godmother is very short blog about one my daughter’s reference to one of our cats. A cute quip.

I have always silently called Tasha “Houdini” because we have an ongoing battle once spring arrives – she attempts to escape the house  anytime she can. Last night, through a series of “misunderstandings” (2 new teen friends that ignored house rules about closing doors to the outside) Tasha left the house. While she is good about returning inside on the command “house”, I didn’t know she was outside, and let the dogs into the back yard. They didn’t recognize T and scared the bejeezus out of her and she took refuge under the deck.
This morning she is gone. I know all the tricks of the trade for finding a lost cat and the plan has been implemented. This past week I managed to bring my anxiety and stress to a manageable level – all of that is out the window.  I am to blame for the disappearance of the Fairy Godmother. Just ask my daughter – she will gladly provide a list of all my shortcomings that lead the the disappearance of T the FG.
Dear Fairy Godmother – Please come back. Or at least send your magic wand.  We are all missing you. While I am not the sort to bargain with or bribe children – name your price or I am doomed. Signed, Her Highness, Queen of Anne2 Kingdom. (I think she made off with my crown.)

If you see a large grey cat, no collar, with this crown – you know who to call.
