Kanga on Youtube!

I've written about my cat Kanga before.
I was trying to write an illustrated book about her, most likely a children's book...but I didn't like how it was turning out.
I knew in my mind how I wanted it to be and what I had done so far just didn't feel right. I wasn't happy with it at all but now I think I've got a better grasp on it.
I've come up with some new ideas.
I'm motivated again.
I am starting at SQUARE ONE. But I really feel like I'm on the right path now.
I want the book to be an inspiration to anyone struggling.
I want it to be a glass half full, positive upbeat happy book.
I went back to see where the post was and I can't believe it was all the way back in 2009!
Sometimes TIME does just fly by.
So, many of you probably have missed that post, but here it is, if you care to read about her:

Kanga is my little black cat that sometimes lives at the clinic where I work and sometimes here at home. I leave her at the clinic a lot because she gets a lot more attention there than at home.
People like to come back and visit her.
She is a very happy cat. Always rubbing against people and purring.
She has always been this way.
She lost her front legs in a farming accident and woke up from surgery purring. Rather than have her go back to the farm where I was sure she would not have survived, I adopted her.
I named her Kanga because when she stands up, she walks like a Kangaroo.
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
So is a video worth a million?
Here she is! -

She is sooo cute. She is very lucky to have you for a Mom. It's amazing how some animals just go along...they accept their fate and just try to make the most of it. I know that is how my sister's dog Benji is. He had a terrible accident and wagged his tail through the whole thing. Violet on the other hand...just shuts down when she does not feel good. She does not keep her happy attitude.

I miss having a black cat. I have to admit Sable was evil though. Even the vets had a hard time pretending she was sweet.
Kanga is a really neat cat.

Kanga is a cutie!!! Currently, I'm fostering a dog who had a rear leg amputation. She is simply amazing. Somehow she found herself in our local high kill shelter with a limp. She was pulled for a rescue program and her x-rays showed that her knee joint had broken and then healed completely separated. She'd had the injury for a long time. Now, she runs, jumps, plays, and is as active as any of my other dogs. Their resilience is inspirational!
