Every home has one – The Lookout. And when it comes to Quint, he’s a good one.

SHHHH! Quiet, you guys! I think I heard Mom! She won’t be happy to hear your breakout plan to catch birds!

Bonus Lookout: Miss Newton watches out for Patrol Sergent mama Zuzu who dislikes all kinds of fun.

The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society dinner and auction over the weekend was fun and beneficial as always. We saw lots of shelter friends and a good amount of money was raised for this little shelter with a big heart. We were immensely proud to see one of the early Niblets photos featured under cats and kittens who had found homes…

…and sad to see sweet, orange boy Caine, the Seattle Seahawks fan, still without a forever family. He’s become very shy and subdued at the shelter in the years he’s been there and sadly, was unable to witness and celebrate his Seahawks win last season’s Superbowl. If only we weren’t a full house…

Last week, due to unforeseen circumstances and a bit of communication snafu-ery, we were unable to place Quint’s special 6×6 inch canvas set of seasonal paintings in the WCGHS auction. We were very disappointed, but with hopes of making something good of the situation and help out the shelter, next month we will offer that single set in the group of four – Spring, Summer, Autumn, and yet to be released Winter – online at Quint’s Art Shop for one hundred dollars.

This is a single set of four 6 inch by 6 inch canvases, each with a small easel, each signed, numbered, and dated. The Spring canvas was painted in 2013, Summer is from 2012, and both Autumn and Winter were painted this year.

We think this would be a terrific gift set for a collector of Quint’s work or that special cat admirer who thinks they have everything feline. Quint would love knowing his work continues to help his fellow shelter kitties while bringing joy to one special art lover. Will you be that one?

It’s been rainy outside for a few days now. I guess that means my first summer is really over. *sigh* I liked summer.

You have lots of summers ahead of you, Viola. But we understand. There’s another girl in this house who didn’t like the end of summer once either. You remind us a little of her.
