Quote of the week:

“It is odd, the twists that life will sometimes take. The ewe that you think will give birth with ease dies bringing forth a two-headed lamb. Or the ski trail that you have been told is treacherous, you navigate easily.” –Edith Pattou, East
(This was one of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite books as a child. It always makes me feel a little better when things are looking unsure.)

This upcoming Saturday, November 19th, is National Adoption Day and there are few more rewarding experiences on Earth than coming home to an animal (in my humble, unbiased opinion).

My own adopted cat, Madeline, is the best in my biased, un-humble opinion.

Here are a few places you can adopt in the Philadelphia area:
-Pennsylvania SPCA (where Madeline is from!)
-The Mainline Animal Rescue
-Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society
Adoption costs range from 30 to 100 dollars, depending on the adoption center and the age of the cat. While  a pet of any kind (even the lovely, tiny beta fish) is a large and consistent responsibility, they are worth the worry over who bought cat food last week or how much you’ll have to lint roll your favorite black work pants.

This could be what you come home to every single day.
