As things are winding down at the Sand Fire, and its sort of getting back to normal around the shelter, I felt it was prime time for another update on the New Shelter Facility over on Capitol. All I can say is Siamese Kitten – Yes you read that right – Siamese Kitten. My deputy found all of these white plastic buckets on site.
A little investigative work turned up the truth. This is fortunately not the leavings of a kitten smuggling ring that uses the buckets to transport the kittens, but the color of the interior walls at the new facility. On close examination the deputy found painters painting and buckets of this stuff being pumped out airlessly in lines snaking throughout the building. And the color of the paint does match that of a Siamese kitten.
Keeping with the pet theme, the painters are using “Husky” plastic to mask off stuff as they paint. It appears that most of the insulation is in and the drywall is up and taped. There is a little sanding and smoothing of the taped plaster but mostly just a lot of painting.
The giant ladders still fascinate me though. I wonder if there are other places that can be accessed for exploration once the drop ceilings are in. I definitely have reconsidered letting the little kittens go exploring up there as I am sure one would drop through the ceiling onto me during my all important afternoon nap and handsome sleep.
Check out the Velux Sun Tunnels. It still amazes me how much light these things bring into the building. It all seems to be on schedule for an expected opening in October.
More good news. The PAWED Finishing Touches campaign is going great. So far $180,000 of the $200,000 goal have been raised. We really do have some incredibly generous members and donors in our community, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The photography crew came in on Tuesday to get My picture for My tile for My new shelter. Did you get one of your pet for the tile wall in the new shelter? Click here if you are interested.
Speaking of the photographs, check out some of the little ones available for adoption at the shelter right now. They look pretty energetic and likely to disturb “some one’s” afternoon naps. Sooo, your assistance in getting them adopted ASAP would be greatly appreciated. All kittens are currently only $40 to adopt.
One last thought is that I think we need a training class on proper cat massage and chin rubbing techniques. I will be glad to provide direct instruction to all attendees or work with you on a one on one basis. Just stop by and say high to Bullet at the Animal Shelter in Placerville. Remember 12-1 is nap time – so not then.
AND SAVE THE DATE! – The Grand Opening Celebration is schedule for November 15, 2014.
