Saturday, Sept. 29

Where did this month go? It's hard to believe September is almost over and October will be here. It's been a beautiful fall here. 

Tenzin is back at home/FFRC. He looks wonderful. Dr. Amanda did an awesome job. They again had trouble with his blood pressure--certainly isn't related to the meds. They feel it's just "him". So, if he ever has to have future surgeries, will keep double check on his blood pressure. But, they got him thru, and he is doing good. Tenzin is a sweet boy. His sutures will come out in 10-12 days. Tenzin still have his head tilt and 
possibly may keep this "look" for life. 

We have another visitor now! Val, who has adopted from us, is visiting and brought her 6 cats/kittens with her. Remember,one of them is Koopoer, which truly belongs to Janet. So, Val, Janet, Kooper and cats are having a good "catch up" visit. 

If you are interested in receiving a CD from Mike, who sung at our concert, let me know.  You can either mail a check for $15 to FFRC or can pay thru PayPal. For those of you who have already received his CD, if your CD arrived damaged, please don't hesitate to let me know. We have it figured out how to mail these now with minimal problems. 

We have 2 new arrivals. These two golden kittens have actually been here since Tuesday night. They have come from a horrible situation. They arrived so terribly flea ridden and emaciated, it took until Friday to be able to draw blood for their leukemia/FIV test. But, they are both doing better now. Their tests are negative, they're eating good and purring oh so much! They certainly find great comfort in each other. One is a little boy, probably around 10 weeks old. The other is a female, probably around 16 weeks old. They've had their baths and all fleas are now gone. They will come into the main area soon. The little girl is now called Nance and the little boy is Pants (in honor of one of our moderator's birthday!) 

We also had an adoption yesterday. Our sweet Angel Kisses went to her new home. She went home with Judy S, a volunteer who has loved Angel Kisses since the day she arrived. So happy for both of them!

Fifi's birthday is 9/20. But due to my sloppy writing (yes, I admit it), her birthday can be taken also as 28 and 29. So, our sweet Fifi has 3 birthdays--the 20th, 28th and 29th! She had a few cards and a wonderful squeaky toy and a special Appetizer for today.
Happpy Birthday, FiFI!
