Viewer Appreciation Day TODAY!
Our way of saying thanks to the many web cam viewers is to have the audio on for you at the Rescue Center! Hope you enjoy. I know we enjoy sharing our kitties and cats with you. We had boxes last night which we're always grateful for. Beth A, from KY sent Fancy Feast, Whiskas and baby food--all items in big demand. Sillysticks sent items from Staples which were bleach, HE laundry soap, map pins for our new board. Sabrina & Cantoncat sent 2 cases of senior Friskies which the oldsters love. Gossamer sent a pack of 112 rattling feather fur cat mice. Thanks to Beth, Sillysticks, Sabrina & Canton and Gossamer for these gifts to the rescue center. We love opening boxes. These gifts make a huge difference to the Rescue Center. Thanks also to Caity B. who has made those wonderful shopping bags out of the cat/dog/bird/grain bags. They are really neat. We are still #1 in The Animal Rescue Site voting stats! What a thrill! Please keep voting for us. We took in a new cat last night. This ancient of all oldsters is a Himalayan cat, already neutered male, declawed front. This cat was apparently seen 2 weeks ago already in extremely poor condition. When the family went out to get him, he was no longer in sight until last night. Many thanks to this family for bringing this cat here. This fella is so very old, only weighs 4 lbs. 12 ounces and is probably the worst of all cats hydration-wise that has ever came here. We're giving fluids in a timely manner and keeping him warm as he's having a hard time keeping his body temperature up. He's getting a name that means something. It's Michio--the strength of 3,000. It saddens my heart that we may not be able to help him. How can these things happen? Today we will begin “Where in the World are the Paddys?” We are sending out a stuffed Persian toy to represent Paddy Cake and Paddy Purr. First stop is to Sevren who lives in London. She will take a picture of the Paddys by something that represents her area. Then Sevren will send it on to someone else of her choosing. After the Paddys have made 20 stops all around the world, they will be returned to the Rescue center. The pictures taken will be posted in our facebook so everyone can keep track of where they are! Sounds like fun!
