On Sundays I volunteer at the local wildlife rehabilitation centre, Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society. I have gotten to do cool stuff like hold bald eagles while they are being treated, give eye drops to owls, and go out on swan rescues. But there is a lot of less-exciting tasks involved, too, like eviscerating quail for the raptors’ meals, scrubbing poo-crusted kennels, and scraping poo-covered laundry. A lot of laundry. And there is A LOT of poo involved. And let me tell you, sick eagle poo is not a pleasant substance.
And when I come home, I generally want to wash my clothes immediately. So it’s laundry day here as well.
But I can’t blame Chai, because I know my laundry basket is irresistable to cats.
(Chai is not a foster kitten– I’m stuck with him forever.) 😉
Thinking of laundry day reminded me of this photo:
At least we never had to pry wallabies out of the bucket.
Do you have any laundry stories? Or cat stories? Do you volunteer anywhere?
