As I mentioned before, my focus had changed regarding my class project. So here is Visual Precis version two.
Another assignment for class was to create a visual precis.
One day in class I wondered if anyone had data about volunteer demographics. Who volunteers in animal rescue?

My assignment was to imagine things that I would put in a kit to raise public awareness for my topic. My mind immediately flashed to Jackson Galaxy’s My Cat From Hell, and the guitar case full of cat supplies that he carries with him. I also figured it was far too obvious to put food, litter, toys, etc. into an advocacy kit.
Part of my class assignment is to do a video presentation. My professor requested that we do a rough draft video, so I did one in my living room, with my various cats trolling in the background.
The other day I read an article about an Oklahoma ASPCA using technology to adopt cats.
Up until now, I’ve had some sort of personal association with the places I’ve been going. My professor suggested going somewhere I’m not affiliated with, to compare how another organization might do things differently. So I went to the Humane Society of Fairfax County, where a colleague volunteers.
