Tuesday, July 10

We had an adoption yesterday! Our sweet Purrdita was adopted to a family that has previously adopted from us before. She is going into an awesome family with 2 other cats.

There are a couple events that happened while the power outage was happening. Our sweet boy Hudson was returned for pottying a bit, inappropriately. I had a family that was interested in Penn or Teller and was waiting for their skin issues to resolve. Because of the very high heat and humidity in here, I called the family that was interested in Penn or Teller. They remembered Hudson from a previous visit and came to see him. They have now adopted him and so far, no potty problems!

We have a new hold on a kitten! Sizzle is now on hold and probably will go to her new home the first weekend of August, along with a second kitty from here!

We also have an update on Sumer and Buttons. Sumer had her spay surgery about 2 weeks ago and went to a home (was going to be a foster) to keep her safe and INDOORS during the Catathon. Sumer had been an outside cat with a great desire to go back outside. We were trying to convince her otherwise. But, after her spay, her desire to go outside heightened and she successed in "escaping" out a screen door. She is now their outside cat and is staying put on their porch and yard area and is quite content. Since they had really wanted an inside cat, they've fallen for Buttons, who is NOT having any potty issues there! So....all is well.

We took in 2 young kittens yesterday. One is a kitten that was tossed from a car. She also had the hanging lip like McLovin' had. The people that saw this act happen, scooped her up and took her to their vets for the chin/button surgery. Her sutures are now out and she is now here. Not named yet! She is a grey/cream torti, a bit shy, but we're working on her. The other kitten is a grey tiger swirl, male, that was found in a hay mound. No mama around. He's ever so sweet and started sucking on the person's lip right away! These 2 are sharing a pen and are both feline leukemia/FIV negative. They will get their baths today.

The voting has begun for The Animal Rescue Site. We are only up for one win this session--having the most votes in one week per The Animal Rescue Site due to our past wins. So, for this quarter, maybe you want to vote for your local or a state shelter or rescue OR you could vote for A Labor of Love Dog Rescue in Defiance, OH. This is Lisa's dog rescue--she also works here and could use the winning $1,000 for a fence for her dog rescue which is at her home.

We need to have people understand something. Goss, who does a lot of the video taping for the BOXES for FFRC does this out of the kindness of her heart. She is not obligated to do this every night. Please, don't assume that this is something that can be done every single night. It is an act of kindness that she does for us. When you "see" her, please pass on your thanks for what she does for FFRC!

Please check our Friends of Felines' Rescue Center's facebook for updates and info. Remember, we also have a wonderful website with tons of info: fofrescue.org

Between the volunteers, the webcam viewers, the moderators, the facebook participants, I am realizing how great of numbers we have that are involved with this rescue center. Please, realize, we try to do the best we can to keep all happy, but that is an impossible task, with such a broad audience, but we try! I appreciate each and every one of you. We love what we do here at this Rescue Center with a passion and enjoy sharing it with you. Please remember, the cam chat and the fb pages are always G-rated--be kind and considerate of all the people that may be reading. This Rescue Center is all about the cats and kittens--let's enjoy them!
