Weds., September 5

We have very thick fog here this morning. Cyrilla and Purrby wanted the little door to the outdoor enclosure opened. I told them no, not yet, we may not be able to see them out there in this dense fog. We'll wait for the sun to break thru.

Zelda is sprawled out on the desk, with Tallulah laying half way across her. FiFi is laying inside the desk drawer, with Jaina laying on a stack of papers. They are SO helpful.

The dry cough we have here is quickly clearing up. All eyes (except for Cassidy) looks real good. Derecho had to potty this morning, walked over to one of the big litterboxes and waited to be lifted inside the box. He's so smart!

One of the Porchie cats brought a mouse up to the back porch and left it there for us. They ALL looked pretty smug about it! Fabio received a partial groom/shave yesterday. We needed to do that now, so he has fur for the winter, yet it won't get so long as to cause problems before spring. The Covies look great. They seem very happy and love to have the visitors come out and see them. We usually send treats out with the visitors to give to them.

This is part of the information that goes home in each and every adoption bag: If you are no longer able to keep or take care of your FFRC cat, we take back 100% of our cats. It doesn't matter how much time has gone by or for what reason. Just call and we will gladly set up a time for you to bring back your pet. We always hope every adoption is for the lifetime of the cat, but we also understand that things happen.

Mike, our TV singing guy who is doing the concert for us on 9/21 and 9/22 will be leaving California soon, to make the trip here to Defiance! Here is another article that a California paper did on Mike's trip here for Catstock:
Prayers for a safe journey for Mike and his wife.

Don't forget to check out our new store at Zazzle. Goss has worked hard on it. Some of the items are for the Catstock event!

Yesterday, the peacocks were going by the front office door, which was open. There were 6 cats stretching up to the screen door, with their paws on the glass watching them. One of the penhens looks at the cats and squawked. I never saw 6 cats move so fast in my life!

GracieAnn is doing much better. The abscess she had on her rear leg is about half way healed. It appears, someone took a bite on her. Poor baby--she's doing much better now though.
