Saturday, August 25

It's a cooler morning and the cats and kitties are very frisky. It gives me such joy to watch them play--their energy is boundless and the friendliness of them together is something special. We had visitors yesterday. As you know, we enjoy having people come and give extra petting to everyone. It's a win/win deal for the cats and the humans.

Zelda, Cyrilla and Jaina are all sleeping on my desk. They never realize how much their bodies fill up, overflow and cover up the top of my desk! But, what better way to work, I wouldn't know!

Putter and Emaline are doing great. I keep putting them back out into the Rescue Center several times a day to visit and cruise about, but they always end up back at the door, staring at it, waiting for the door to open and let them back into the house. Putter loves to lay on one of the rugs that Connie from MN made!

Yesterday, we caught up on giving vaccinations and worming. Also a few needed their monthly flea prevention given. We usually have a few to give daily, but some days have many names on the treatment board.

The 4 kittens that were in June's Room, Zorka, Liberty, Drake and Roadinia are doing fantastic. They don't even miss their room and haven't went back in there. They've just joined the kitty gang like they've always known them. It won't be long until the 5 kittens in Thumper's Room will be in Cat's Corner Room to start progressing their entry into the main area. They are so cute and so very friendly. We can't hardly leave Thumper's Room--it's too hard to stop playing and petting them!

Today we have another Advisory Meeting to continue our plans for the Catstock event. Next week I will give you an update on this!

We have decided to update Albert's Garden. Once the current flowers are done, we'll extra clean up the Garden. We will put Bravo's items there. I also have small river rocks (5-6 inches each), with names of some of the cat's/kitten's names on them that have passed away. When done, we'll take a picture of it so all can see.

Shirley. How much more relaxed can a kitten be?!
