Shine a Light for Barbcat

  Shine a Light for Barbcat

Today’s Shine A Light (where we do a simple act of kindness for an individual) is for a long-time Care2 member and her extraordinary commitment to animals.

You may know her as BarbCat. She has been working to protect animals for most of her life and has been a member of Care2 since 2002. Barb has spent hundreds of hours signing petitions, sharing stories about animals in need, talking with her Care2 friends and working to be a positive influence for good — all done while overcoming a significant disability.

Barb’s commitment to animals has always been a part of her life. Even as a young child, she was devoted to her family’s pets and they were devoted to her. Her family and friends nicknamed her “Snow White” because when they would go outside or spend time at local nature preserves, animals would literally flock to her, climbing on her wheelchair and into her lap when possible. Barb’s love for animals is contagious and spreads to all those she meets. She recently encouraged employees where she lives to sign up to do a charity walk with her to help raise money for local animal issues.

Please take a moment to send some love and good wishes to BarbCat by leaving a comment. We’ll make sure those messages are shared with Barb.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ BarbAnMark Forever ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excitement, excitement!!  Mark called me on Aug 30th and said he is almost through with his contract in Alaska and he hopes to be back in the United States flying transfer for medical supplies. I suppose this means he will be working mainly for doctors/hospitals in emergency situations.

I haven't heard anymore about his Esophageal Cancer. He said he hates taking medicine because he can never remember to take it, and it's dangerous for pilots to be on meds especially if they make 'em sleepy.

So......we're getting closer to the day when Mark finally lands his in Asheville, NC at the Asheville Regional Airport where my family will escort me to meet FINALLY Meet The Man of My Dreams for almost 1 decade. I will keep you posted.

For now however, I ask that you would please keep me and Mark in your prayers and thank y'all so much for keeping us in your prayers/good thoughts. It means the to both of us.

God Bless,

Barb & Mark

My name is Marshmallow and I’m a 4-week-old kitten. A short while ago, I could have died. My sister and I were out in the world on our own without our mother. My sister Smore was doing ok, but I was having health problems. I couldn’t see; my eyes were filled with debris and they burned with terrible irritation.

Please click Marshmallow's picture to see more.
