    CATS
    Juan—A distinguished 4- to 5-year-old male tabby with white markings. He was a stray living outdoors, with no known previous owner. Juan is afraid if people approach him too closely, but he loves cats and kittens. He would like a home where he can maintain his distance until he is ready to come closer. Of course, he would love to have cat or kitten companions, too. At the shelter, Juan has started becoming more comfortable with people who have spent time near him while respecting his boundaries.

  • This week, I am going to write about friendship.
    You see I don’t mind admitting when I am wrong, it allows one to grow if they don’t believe they are always perfect.
    You see I missed Facebook’s Friends Day celebrating connections in February, International Friendship Day on July 30 and Friendship Day on Aug. 7.
    Apparently I need a new calendar or to pay attention, but we will take it as a teaching moment.
    You don’t need a special day to tell someone how wonderful they are, but when you have a platform, that helps the message to get out.
    My close circle of friends includes one; Pauline Powell Schneider, she’s the executive director of the Los Alamos Retired and Senior Organization (LARSO), which runs both the Betty Ehart Senior Center and the White Rock Senior Center.
    She is an excellent person, some might say brilliant actually with a penchant for being one of those people you just like to be around.
    I think I may sign on to assist with any fundraiser she does just so we can do things together, but don’t let that get around.
