101 Free Cats

The Boulder Valley Humane Society is inundated with cats and kittens.  Therefore, today through Sunday (Happy Mother's Day!) all cats 6 months or older are available for free adoption, and all kittens are available at half the usual cost.  The adoption means the cat or kitten has been spayed or neutered, has a micro-chip, has been checked by a veterinarian, and is up-to-date on vaccinations.  If you can afford the cost of up-keep, and have the space, time, and heart to take in a kit that needs a life-time home, please do so.
   In horse racing news, I'll Have Another is getting comfortable at Pimlico prior to the running of the Preakness on May 19th.  Union Rags is skipping the Preakness, as is third-place finisher Dullahan.  The slightly shorter course of the Preakness might be better for Bodemeister.  ....   Team Z announced on May 8 that an ultrasound has confirmed that Zenyatta is in foal to Tapit.  She, and her colt by Bernardini, continue to thrive.  ....  Black Caviar, the sensational Australian race mare, won her last race, and is now 20 for 20.  She is running again in the Goodwood Stakes, down under, on the 19th; then she will be heading for Royal Ascot, to run before the Queen.
    A cold front came through last night, and today's temperature is 30 degrees cooler than yesterday.  Yesterday, we were all in shorts and T-shirts, and sneakers or sandals.  Today, it was long pants, sweaters, raincoats and boots...  Weather in Colorado.  You never know what will happen next.
