Taking in a Stray

It looks like Fur Central will once again become a "Home for Wayward Furs." One of our local friends has hit a rough patch and needs a place to live for awhile. We decided to open our home up to him because he's a good kid who is really trying, but Life has a way to kick you when you're down. So hopefully everything will work out until he's back on his paws. The one good thing is that he works at a nursery, so he can get me a discount on plants.

I really enjoy doing this. While I'm a "pull yourself up by your bootstraps" kinda guy, I also know how unfair "the system" can be. If you want to play video games all day or don't have any ambition, then you get what you deserve. If you really want to make a life for yourself but things just aren't going your way, then you deserve a paw up. That's why I always want to distinguish "bums" from "homeless." Homeless implies that through some series of unfortunate events, you don't have a place to live temporarily. Bum means that you would rather get drunk or high or don't want to live under the rules of Da Man. Tough shit. Your choice.
