12 1/2 years and counting.

I was a foster mom for Hopalong in 1999 and on. I ended up adopting a dog and two cats.

Unfortunately my beautiful Sylvester, who clawed his way into being an outdoor cat, disappeared about 8 years ago, and I still look for him whenever I see a flash of black and white. He is a dead ringer for the "Sylvester" cat you always see.
Mick and Smoky are still going strong, both of them now 12 1/2 years old. I have since adopted another cat, brought to me as a kitten by one of my students, and he is huge, playful and loveable.

Mick is now a volunteer "listener" for the PAWS to read program at the Castro Valley library.
I loved being part of Hopalong, and I really love what they are doing for our homeless pets!
