The Persian babies are now 12 days old! Not only did the kittens get their names yesterday, but their eyes started popping open! The world is now open to them! Mama sometimes lays away from them for a fair bit of time but all of their tummies are round. They are weighed every two days and they've all gained weight at each weigh-in.
We took on another older kitten that was taken to Dr. Pettigrew's office. She had been hit by a car and left with a dangling right front leg, hanging on just by skin pieces. She also had a fair amount of maggots in her wound. Her leg was amputated on 10/12. And she arrived here 10/17. She's a black tiger and is a bit shy. She does enjoy being petted though. We're working on her self-confidence! And now for her name............we drew another name from the Persian pile of names and came up with the name of CLARA!
We also have another injured older kitten at Dr. Pettigrew's office, waiting for surgery before FFRC takes him. He was found yesterday after being hit by a car. He's a light grey tiger. His front legs were injured--one has full radial nerve damage and will require an amputation as the leg is completely limp. The other leg has a major fracture which will require a pin. The pinning will take place first so he will have a usable leg. His surgery for that is scheduled for Monday. We're hoping to get him here on Tuesday. His second surgery, the amputation, will probably take place at our next FFRC surgery in November, unless decided otherwise. And now for his name...........we drew another name from the Persian pile of names and came up with the name of SINBAD!

Hatima is doing super! That little kitten has a lot of spunk. She may struggle a little but she makes it to the litterbox! And she loves to play "hit the ball". And her purr...she has a lion purr in a little kitten body!
Hobie is being fostered by Auntie Peggy and is doing super! He's so cute--all brown tiger/white with just the cutest face! He arrived at 3 weeks of age.
Saturday is our next spay/neuter day. We had posted the temporary names but will repeat. We are ready for Saturday!
Males: Cashew (leg), March (leg), Czar, Lukas, Manfred, Rill, McCain, Tilo, Bravo, Bruno and Wizzard. The last 3 males here listed are cats belonging to friends of FFRC.
Females: Imogene, Rosie, Thapar, Magnificence, Tiya
We had originally had Hatima scheduled but will wait till she's a tad bigger.
We also have a good handful of cats needing physicals.
Before the Persian name drawing, we had BOXES! We are very grateful for all supplies & help!
Kim R, Moose & Baby / NC- Lots of jewelry, earrings bracelets, charms, key chains
I've had folks asking about Giovanna. Right now, even though so thin, she is holding her own. She's receiving lots of hugs, holdings and kisses and food whenever she wants.
Thanks to everyone for helping us with provisions to FFRC--you truly make a difference to us. Gotta go---have to get all the new names to the Name a Cat list! Have a super day!
