Rain on the parade

Note from Girl Human
Two Gray clouds. One with rain and the other???
Today was our yard sale. It was hot but pleasant in the shade. I had to play musical chairs for the 6 hours of the sale, to keep the sun from shining directly in the eyes.. I wore my sunscreen but did get some much needed color on my pail skin.
We did not have many at the sale and only made $42.00 for the Junction. Plus one and only donation came from a little boy who donated, $1.85 of his own money to the cat donation jar. My week was full of cleaning closets, drawers, taking 3 trips 16 miles to deliver the stuff for the sale. Others did the same to help the guys also. A lot of hours and running on 4 hours sleep we started set up at 6 a.m..
After the sale we loaded up and took some things to a truck heading for Oklahoma. Then 2 more car loads to the Goodwill waited in line 20 minutes to deliver.
We had 2 clouds over the sale. One was filled with a short lived downpour and the other with a women deciding she didn't need to pay for products. She stuck little things in her pocket and changed a $3.00 label to a 10 cent label. Now with 75% of our stuff priced under a $1.00 it, blows my mind.
WHY??? I was for a cause, for cry'in out loud. What is wrong with people??? That to me, had to be the lowest of lows. To steal from the cats.
We needed $400.. We knew we would never get it all but, did hope for a lot more then $42. We almost have enough for one cat to see the Vet. Well I guess I can look at it as we are getting a little closer.
I'm tired and disappointed. Why do dishonest Humans who have to ruin a day and cheat the kitties out of their needs??? Thanks for listening to my frustrations

Sorry all that disappointing junk had to happen, and not a good sale either.

That little boy was furry loving, though.
