My Phone Just Screamed

My phone just made these incredibly loud noises I’ve never heard it make before, to accompany an alert for Ahmad Khan Rahami. It was very effective. And this is a phone where I have the sound turned off on most apps, so I’m not used to hearing it make noise. I wish I had been in a crowd of people, to hear what it sounded like going off on everyone’s phone.

Very unnerving. So yeah, I’ll keep an eye out for him. Now, in more comforting news, here are a couple of shots from yesterday’s Adoptapalooza at Union Square. This is a girl inside a booth with a kitten. That kitten was adorable. There were two other kittens there that I wanted to take home so bad. Had I spent seven minutes with them in this booth I would have been a goner. (Two cats are my limit, two cats are my limit, two cats are my limit.)

And here are two greyhounds in heaven. They were just laying there, accepting the pets. I mean, look at them. Total bliss.

  1. I once saw some rescue Greyhounds at a pet adoption thingy and they were just so fabulous, I wanted them all. I love the way their owners tend to dress them in very wide collars too.
