Caring Fields

Dylan is doing some volunteer work on the weekends at Caring Fields. This is an animal rescue shelter for horses and cats.  Dylan hasn't worked at all with the horses, but he really enjoys his involvement with the cats - even with Henry, who keeps trying to climb the fence!

 The cats have small houses to live in.  They're free to move from house to house any time.  The houses are where the cats are fed and watered, and can seek shelter and find a place to nap.  I think I remember him saying that there are 5 or 6 of the little houses altogether.

 Dylan's main jobs are feeding and watering all of the kitties, petting them and keeping track of all of them.  He's usually there every Saturday morning for four or five hours.

When Dylan started his volunteering, Chip said "Oh now we're going to end up with a kitten!"  But I don't think that will happen.  Then there's Grandpa Dick who delights in telling his friends that Dylan is working in a cat house!  (Heavy sigh.)
