Friday, August 3

Ginseng got his nails trimmed this morning, and he still managed to jump on my back and scurry to the shoulder. I guess there's nothing to do but give him a big hug. He's so happy--all he wants is more and more petting! Jaina and Macallan are napping side by side, with Asha in front of them, cleaning their faces! Tabitha and Talulah are racing up and down the front office floor, just for the fun of it!

We now have 2 kittens in Thumper's Room. The first one, is the one Sigrid had rescued from the tree in a park (a friend of hers used a long ladder). This is a female, ever so sweet brown tiger. She LOVES people and just wants to chatter at us and be held. Her name is Treesa. She now has a new friend with her in Thumper's Room. This is a little kitten (6 weeks old) that someone dumped at a local fishing spot. Here's this tiny baby in the middle of no where. So skinny and hungry. She's white with a colored spot on her forehead. Her name is Miau, another Name that Cat name from Catathon. It's pronounce Meow, which is what this little kitten does--lots of chatter talk from her! Two chatter-boxes together!

Jimmy put the new Cat Go Round Wheel together yesterday. Of course, he had lots of help with this project--cats had to supervise it. There's no decal on it yet, but will be arriving.

We also have a really cool "thing" arriving today at 2:00 ish. It's a surprise, but will show you on the webcam what it is! Can't wait!

We had BOXES last night! Many thanks and gratitude.

I've been asked to repost the numbers of our local Bed & Breakfast and 4 hotels here in Defiance. If you are interested in joining us for a great Catstock weekend on 9/22 (Saturday), you may want to make reservations to stay all night! If you are here on 9/21 (Friday), you can see the webcam's mini-concert that evening.
Elliot Rose Bed & Breakfast 419-956-9981
Comfort Inn 419-784-4900

The 4 hotels are all grouped together on the north side of Defiance. The B & B is close to town. All are within 15 minutes of the Rescue Center.

Kiara, Ada Jane and Filbert have been napping a lot on the dryer. I believe they like the jiggly warmth! Octavia did her act again (no, not the thievery act)--pulling out all the plastic bags from the bin onto the floor again. The kittens just wait for her to do this--lots of rustling fun (under supervision of course). Weber has big paws and he knows how to use them. Twice this morning I've seen him snag another kitten's toy--reaches right out, swipes it and then runs!
