    What nice pictures! Wishing you the best of the season this year. You and your family deserve a bit of happiness given the stress that you all have had to cope with over the past few years. Love the tree…..looks much better up than on the top of the car for sure. Best wishes to you all.

    Dear Dr. Jones,

    My name is Dianne Liebes and I would love an opportunity to win any of your books and tapes.
    So here is one of my stories about rescuing a pet.
    I have lots of them. Here goes:
    Two Christmases ago as I was driving on the highway when I noticed what I thought
    was just snow on the inside lane of our four lane highway. As I got closer I could see
    it was a tiny, bedraggled little white and grey-striped kitten huddled in the center lane. Cars were coming behind me in that lane, and I was fearful it would get hit if it hadn’t already been. I hurriedly pulled over and stopped. As I got out to go and try to pick it up, several cars were coming fast in that lane. I held my breath in anguish fearing I was too late. Three cars passed right over it, and I saw the little cat tumble. I walked out to see if it was alive or dead or maimed. I saw a wet, dirty little “barn cat” with blood on it’s mouth. It was terrified and bit me as I picked it up. I walked with it back to my car and sat there with it in my arms crying and wondering if it was hurt and dying. I couldn’t stand to see it suffer and die without trying to do something, so I drove to the vet’s office just a few blocks from where I was. I was still crying and begged them to do what they could for this poor little waif. They were sympathetic, and we took it into one of the rooms where the vet and his staff determined it didn’t seem to have any injuries that they could see, but was dehydrated and starving. We offered food which it hurriedly ate. That
    helped us to believe she wasn’t hurt badly. Well, I paid the $300 vet bill, took the kitten,
    a water bottle, and some antibiotics home with me to face my husband who figured I was
    crazy! But he’s been married to me long enough to know there’s no winning. I’ve saved
    baby birds, baby mice, baby kittens, etc. many times in our married life. I nursed the
    little cat (maybe 6-8 wks. old) with a warm box and blanket and warm water bottles.
    In a week he was looking much better and acting normal. Well, now what to do with her? I have a big 20 lb. cat who was not taking kindly to this interruption so I knew keeping it was not going to work. We also have a German Shorthair and a Morkie. Since I teach and lead the music for the young kids at Church, I told them about the Christmas kitty and the rescue. Then I told them to help me find a home for this little orphan kitten who obviously had a lot more than nine lives and was a Christmas miracle. Before I left Church that day, one of my neighbors came up saying she was looking for a kitten to give her nephew for Christmas. She asked if she could come and get the kitten on Christmas Eve to surprise him with. And so my little expensive rescued barn cat found herself a much-loved and wanted Christmas gift.

    Thanks for your kind offer and competition. I have taken in three dogs off the street(unable to find owners). I think the one was abused – took a long time for him to trust and show me any affection. Feed over 100 pigeons daily. Often have to remove string around painful toes and legs(cutting off circulation) and treat medically when sick. Also feed 10 feral cats at night. All are sterilized and kept healthy too. They bring so much joy and meaning to this pensioners life. Love them all.
