Yesterday, we celebrated our Humane Society's 125 anniversary with a lovely luncheon at the Hotel Murano. Every staff member attended along with board members, many volunteers, supporters and one cat.
Yes, Wylla was my date for the event -unfortunately I left the SD card for the camera at home, so I wasn't able to document her on this outing.
We arrived early, signed in, and mingled with friends and guests in the lobby. Wylla was the cat ambassador at the event, and did a great job fulfilling this role. Many people know her story, or recognize her from the billboard campaign, and were excited to say hello to our tiny celeb. She always does well in social situations, and was happy to receive pets from all.
We took our seats and enjoyed the lunch and the presentation. Wylla did great. She perched on my shoulders and the shoulders of the other guests at the table. When she grew tired of perching, she sat in my lap, or curled up under my chair in her bed. She did try to steal a bite of Sue's dessert and a drink from my water glass, but other than these two minor social infractions, she was the prefect little guest.
I'm sorry I don't have photos from the day, but I do have a video to share with you this morning. It was part of the presentation yesterday, and I don't think there was a dry eye in the house after we watched it.
Please grab your hankies and be prepared to shed a few happy tears.
