Friday, Feb. 24

Dickens and Beyaz returned from their vet visit without a problem. Beyaz was a little "off" in the evening--hard for him to settle down and take a nap. This morning, he's much better and is actually napping at the moment. Our Angel Kisses is still there and will have surgery this morning. Her x-rays revealed 2 pelvis fractures and a femoral head fracture. We will bring her back to the Rescue Center after her repair surgery is done. She will recuperate in Patience's Pen. We also took in a new boy yesterday. A very handsome grey and white male, about 6 months old. His name is O'Malley. Because we want him to have more people contact, his quarantine time is taking place with him being in Dodger's Pen.

We had BOXES last night. Thanks so much!
DeEtte--sent a case of Fancy Feast kitten food, 2 cases of Royal Canin Baby Cat food and 2 bags of Royal Canin Baby dry kitten food (we're getting ready for baby season!)
Lisa S & Jacob--sent a Valentine card and a donation in memory of Sesame, a case of 9-Lives pate, a case of Friskies, a bunch of Whiska Lickins cat treats and a Fish 'n Play catnip activity mat.
Jatcat--sent a laserjet ink cartridge for our main copier, a Deluxe Desktop Labeler with extra label tapes This will help us become more organized. We'll be labeling our medicine cabinets which will be a big help! When we get our new storage room, shelves will also be labeled.
Cantoncat--made a donation to help with Angel Kisses' surgery
