Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!
Extra busy days coming up. Today we will be emptying out Kitty City. Kurt, Seth & Linda will be helping with this big job. Tomorrow, Lowe's project begins around 9:00 A.M. I talked to the person in charge of this project yesterday. The plan is to put in a new storm door, put in more 2 x 4's, put insulation between those 2 x 4's, then put up the interior wall. We will also have 4 thermal windows put in. In addition to Lowe's bringing in their own employees to help with this project we have a friend, James, that will lend a hand. How exciting to have this project in the works. It will help so much with the cat's comfort level this winter. All is fine here in the Rescue Center. There's action all around. Kurt has been working on the 2 shelves in Thumper's Room & the catwalks for Kitty Campus Room. They'll be beautiful when he's done. Since he's put the guard rails up on the upper cat walks, we haven't had any falling kitties! Paul now has Kitty Campus Room done. The walls have the fiberboard up, walls and windows are trimmed. That was a very difficult room to do. The Kitty Campus Room is now also done, except for the trim around 1 window. Next is June's Room! Rizzo apparently hurt her foot during the night, has been limping a lot this morning. Gave her some meds to help with the slight swelling and told her to go be with her mama Ernestine and take a nap. We shaved the tummies and tail area of all the long hairs yesterday--Putter, the 2 Paddys, Leotie, Sunoco, Chaplin & Yvette. It makes the grooming job so much easier. Putter is even sporting a "poodle cut" on his 4 feet. He's not into grooming, so this will help keep his toes clean. Saturday is our big surgery day for the FFRC cats--possibly have 13 surgeries to do. We definitely will be having a box opening this evening around 6:30! My 2 granddaughters are here while Caryn & Kellen are at the hospital in Philly. If you would like updates on Kellen, her website is caringbridge.org.
