What our adoption fee covers & big storm this morning

Wow--big but quick storm went thru this morning. Lost our electricity for a little while, but all is fine now. It's so much fun to watch Ziva's kittens--they are trying to "trot" now--such sweet, friendly little babies. Yesterday was a quiet day. We even went to the movies with Sam (son) & Dina (daughter-in-law). Have someone that might be interested in Roadie, has visited him already and has called back with interest on this big boy. The birds have been flocking to the bird feeders outside the rescue windows. The cats are completely excited about this activity. Have been asked a couple times this past week what our $90 adoption fee covers, so here goes: 1 FIV, heartworm & leukemia combo test upon arrival, capstar, bath, 1 leukemia test repeated 4 weeks after arrival, veterinarian exam BEFORE adoption, 3 wormings, 2-3 distemper vaccinations, 2 leukemia vaccinations, flea prevention applied every month a cat is here, the neuter/spay is done BEFORE adoption, and all medical needs are provided that may be required. Also, not to mention all the TLC and petting that is given! We KNOW our cats and kittens--this makes it nice for us to help families find just the right cat for them. Big day today--voting starts again. Please help us by spreading the word to family & friends. We have some new plans in the thinking stage! 

Merci is a very pretty kitty and she knows it!. She's mostly white, but has calico markings including a calico tail. She has just enough spunk to make her a relly fun cat. She arrived at the rescue center on 11/20/10, very thin and neglected--her fur was so very rough. But after good eating and lots of TLC, she's much plumper and her fur coat is soft. She's also enjoying the act of playing, something I don't think she got to do before. Everything is fun for her. She's very silly when she's playing, she'll flip toys and chase them. She even will pat the toys off of the counter, just to get down and tackle them.
