      The only kind of “spreading” I’d find cute on the subway!

    The bird photo booth pictures are fantastic! The birds show so much personality! I wish I had a place to set up such a thing.

    Great bunch of links. Those Pussy cat faces! SO sad, SO on the money. And Derek is too cute to be true – be still my heart. All very uplifting.

    Such wonderful people out there: helping cats and wombats, celebrating birds and butterflies! Made me feel hopeful!

      Yes, we tend to look on the black side and forget that the world is full of caring people – they just don’t get noticed until something ghastly happens. The public response to the Grenfell Tower fire this morning was inspirational.
