My husband and I were watching Harvey videos in the New York Times two nights ago and the fire department was rescuing a pack of stray cats out of a tree surrounded by water. I looked at my husband and said, “Ah! They need a home.” He put his arm around my shoulder and said, “No.”

I never considered donations for the animals. I’m sure my family won’t mind eating rice and beans next month too.

I do enjoy your work very much so. If you’re ever interested in submitting to the Hopes and Dreams for Our Future publication let me know!
