Burst of orange kitties arrive!

Three orange kittens have arrived at the rescue center. They were found by people who have previously adopted from us. They've kept them for a week, but knew they had to find homes for them. So...we've expanded again. These 3 newbies are wonderful--purrboxes and cuddlers already. We have 1 female and 2 males. I would call them triplets. We can tell the female because, well, she's the girl! The boys are identical so one of them has a tiny hair clip on the tip of the tail. They'll probably be out and about tomorrow. We had an adoption yesterday. Sweet Rizzo went to her new home. We have Christmas collars on Ada Jane, Cutie, Bella, Putter, Twinkle & Farrah. Any extra Christmas collars we can send home at adoptions! Our Petfinder report came in yesterday. We had 1,991 total views for last week. The top 6 cats were Anony, Tasco, Nuki, Emaline, Bumblebee and Wiggles.

We had boxes last night! A million thanks to you all!

A long time ago, cjcat, a webcam friend, sent a card to FFRC. She personalized the front of the card for the rescue center. Kathy, a volunteer, has been sprucing up the rescue center with some wonderful cat sayings. She wanted to use cj's card. This saying is now painted on a cabinet close to the entry door. Thanks, cj. I have loved this saying and will always keep this card.

It says: To the world you may be one person, but to one animal you may be the world. (unknown) Despite ups and downs, trials, good times and rough times, we will do the work here that the rescue center stands for. I thank you all for your confidence in us.
