My note of gratitude!
I checked the webcam chat yesterday and it sure brought a smile to me. You all are so caring and compassionate about the cats and kittens here at the Rescue Center and for that, I thank you! It's such a comfort to know that you also love these cats. Gracias to our Spanish friends on the cam. It also amazes me how well many of you know their names. After a very hot and humid summer, it's actually cool this morning. All doors and windows are open, including the 2 doorways to the outdoor enclosure, which the cats love. There's bird feeders to watch, bugs to catch, chickens & peacocks to see, cobwebs for Octavia to eat and so much to do! All is fine here. I'm always grateful for the good health of our cats. Mitty and her kittens are wonderful. The kittens have learned to clutch onto our legs when we go in. Mitty has a terrific purr. Twinkle is wonderful. She's gaining weight, she's comfortable in her surroundings and only goes into her pen now for her special feedings. Kurt now has most of the cat rails up on many of the high catwalks--they look wonderful. Hopefully, no more falling cats. Paul worked all day yesterday in Kitty Campus Room putting up the FRP. These walls are not even by any means, but when he's done, it'll look great. Today he'll continue in Kitty Campus room. We will be cleaning out Kitty City now in preparation for the big Lowe's project on Thursday. Bella's biggest treat (besides baby food) is to go out into the new Welcome Room. We also occasionally let her out with the dogs. Remember, she cannot climb the fence, so she is safe. She loves that sense of freedom, or maybe it's her enjoyment time away from the kittens! Badu, the ragdoll, is so much more comfortable now. She sure loves a good head rub, still grumbles at the cats if they get right in her face, but is certainly people friendly. If you notice KW and Zelda missing sometime, it's because I've cat-napped them into my home! Just kidding, but I sure do love them! Raza at this moment is a statue--she has a bird about 3 feet in front of her at the bird feeders. Good thing she can only watch them. Xubie is still an extremely affectionate cat. Emaline gave Blinken a thorough bath yesterday.
