For fun, I entered Olivia’s picture in a local humane society contest and fund-raiser. It was open to any pet of any kind and there were over 50 entries. It was fun watching the leader board change by the day. The participants were mostly dogs and cats with a cockatoo and a bunny also in the running.
Well, the votes are in. The Humane Society of Ventura County collected over $9,000 for the animals, and Olivia is #3 in cats and #9 overall. She’ll be featured in a special collage in the 2024 HSVC calendar. She looks calm and collected in her photos, but she’s actually giddy with excitement to know that so many throw-away animals like she was before being rescued will be helped.
We thank those of you who voted. It was a fun activity.
