If all continues to improve we are hoping Chief Spotted Eye can undergo surgery on Tuesday.

Carole's "Pick of the Litter"
If you know me, then you know I always have a podcast playing in my ears when I'm doing mindless work, like putting on makeup, washing dishes or riding my bike to work. One of the podcasts I like is High Income Business Writing by Ed Gandia because effective story telling is critical to engaging our supporters with the reasons why they should be a voice for the cats. The following was particularly good and might help you overcome your own worst enemy.
How to Tackle Your Inner Critic and Unleash Your ‘Badassery’
We all have one.
A nagging inner critic that won’t go away.
The one who keeps telling us we can’t. Or we shouldn’t. Or we’re not good enough. Or we don’t know enough (or have enough experience).
She has a name. It’s Hilda.
Unfortunately, no one is immune to Hilda. Not even the most experienced pros.
And as you’re about to see, the secret it NOT to try and silence her for good (not going to happen!).
The key is to learn how to tame her.
Fortunately, there are some practical ways to do that. And that’s the topic of this week’s episode, where you’ll hear from Coach Jennie Mustafa-Julock.
Coach Jennie knows Hilda intimately. She knows all her tricks. And she’ll explain what you need to know about Hilda in order to tame and control her impulsive nature.
I hope you enjoy this interview as much as I did! Listen to it here: http://b2blauncher.com/episode116/
Today the Volunteers Get a FREE LUNCH
Sunday (Nov 27) Big Cat Rescue is providing 30 bagged Vegan Takeout lunches. Volunteers, be sure to get your FREE LUNCH any time after 11:30 in the Gift Shop or from Food Prep. I'd love for more of you to stay after cleaning to help with tours, projects and enrichment, and think it may be hunger that is causing people to leave right after cleaning. You may have sampled some of Pat's great cooking at the Wildcat Walkabout. Here is a little more about their offerings:
Email Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order!
