Thelma Todd and her shadow puppet bunny - c. 1930s
Today I spent part of the day with these two sweethearts, and other lovely animals. I’ve been knitting blankets, making fleece beds and toys for my local no-kill shelter for a few months, and I loooooove it. Anyway, these are my two favorites, McCoy the cat and Bianca the bunny, and I love visiting them. Bianca always hops over to me to get cheek scritches, and McCoy gives kitty kisses. And, look at his cool eyeliner markings! I get to see the things I’ve made making animals happier and I want to devote even more time to this project. Sooo, I will be still be around, but if I am off of here, you’ll know it’s for a good reason. The two nerdy boy volunteers who were there today spent the entire time on their iphones, playing video games and being robot-like instead of actually talking to me, or interacting in any sort of social way, not that I was there for that, but seriously, we’ve turned into a nation of walking zombies - so saddening. But, hanging out with the animals is thee best - and, no iphones with them so big ups to the animal kingdom, as usual!.
