Hello cyber friends and shelter supporters,
  Lance here bouncing in to bring you some news. Me and Mum think it's good news! Mum seems to be on the mend. That makes me want to bounce even more! It seems the medicine Mum was told to take is doing what it's suppose to be doing, making Mum better! Thanks Doc Charlie for giving us our Mum back !
  So far this week (1/6 - 1/9) she's had 3 good days out of 4! That to me with a ferret brain, and springs on my feet, means things are looking up, things are getting better, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, we are getting our Mum back!
  We may have to start running away from her feet again, she has been walking so slow (if you could call what she was doing walking) these last 15 weeks, we would lay at her feet to be picked up. Miss Marcia was here last Wed to help around the shelter. Mum told her how we get underfoot these days, Miss Marcia got to see us in action. The 5 pack were in the room Mum was trying to get out of and they all surrounded her feet, Miss Marcia had to come to the room, to pick them up to help Mum get out of the room.
  I said; Mum was on the mend, not exactly stable on her feet just yet.
  Before Mum got sick if we got anywhere near her feet we would be getting hurt. We knew better than to get too close to her fast as lighting moving feet. Not these days, but it seems that we could be seeing the lightning feet coming back in the very near future. I call that a good thing.
  Mum is so thrilled about her improvement, she told Doc Charlie she was changing his name to Miracle Worker Doc! If things continue to get better the way they have these last few days, Mum will be returning to work in Feb to drive the Big Yellow Thingy.
  Mum will have to take a physical agility test, before she will be allowed to drive the Big Yellow Thingy again. Once she passes that test on Friday 2/2/18 she will be back to driving 2/5/18.
  That of course is on the assumption Doc Charlie thinks she is ready to go back to work, and he writes he a return to work paper. Mum thinks she will be ready by then by the way she is feeling.
  We got a phone call from Miss Donna Z. yesterday - the news paper collector for the shelter - . Miss Donna Z fell down and went boom last Friday on the ice! She went down hard and broke her hip. Humans had to take her in the human ambulance to the human hospital. She got home from the hospital Monday after having shinny metal sticks put in her hip to put her back together.
  Miss Donna Z called to tell Mum there won't be any news papers for a while, she is going to be out of work for at least 6 weeks. No driving and since picking up stacks and stacks of news papers and delivering them to stores requires driving - we are out of luck for papers until she can go back to work. We hope you get better real soon Miss Donna Z. Mum says she is keeping you in her God Box!
  We have a new shelter supporter/volunteer Mr. Tom R. Thanks to Miss Tina B. he found us, stopped in and saw what he liked. Mum's not sure how, since the day he stopped, Mum was in lots of pain and not walking real well at all. Mum was hurt-en for certain that day, Miss Marcia was here helping Mum keep caught up.
  But Mr. Tom as taken an interest in our shelter, sending us fur kids things we need when we need them. He's dropping my to help this week. Miss Donna D has been here to help with things too, all our volunteers have been great helping while Mum was so sick and unable to do things around here. We are blessed to have them.
  I'm sending a picture of Bombay and all his new Christmas things. Bombay was bare naked when he came to the shelter last June, look at that boy now!
Okay gotta bounce,
