Visit to SCS

It’s on a rare occasion that I tell you about what we have been up to.

Because this is a cause close to my heart and because I was ultra excited to go I’ll tell you about this…

Saturday marked World Rhino Day and also WEEAC’s outreach day.
I had been looking forward to the event since I heard about it. For those of you who don’t know WEEAC is the World Event to End Animal Cruelty.
Three events were organised in KZN for three worthy causes.

I woke up on Saturday feeling really bleak; I thought the day would pass not being able to go. You see, my car has some or other issue that we just can’t seem to get to the bottom of – yeah, transport is a huge issue…
Hubby came out of hospital a week ago after another blood pressure scare, where the doctors suspected he had a stroke because it was so high. He is on new medication now, and according to doctors I’ve spoken to BP meds aren’t the easiest to get used to.

So with the odds against me you can understand how I was feeling.

Hubby however, had other plans. He changed some wiring in Little Black and decided we needed to go for a joy ride. I couldn’t have been more grateful and was showered and ready to leave in a flash.

I was like a kid waiting for Christmas as we drove into Second Chances road. To say it again I haven’t been so excited in ages.

Walking inside I finally got to meet Cherece, who I had been chatting to on facebook for a few years. I introduced her to Fairy, aka little crazy cat lady in training. What’s the first thing Fairy says? “I’ve only seen dogs, where are the cats?”

From there both my Book Worm and Fairy were in their element, and so was I, of course.

I have never in my life seen so many gorgeous kitties; from huge cuddly fluff balls to the tiniest of little mites.

What is really awesome is that they are all free roaming and mingling with dogs.

Unfortunately our visit wasn’t a long one, hubby not 100% himself yet. At least now though I can say that I have been there and what a super little sanctuary it is.
