Tuesday, January 15

Janet/Janak made it back safely to New Zealand. What a long flight, but we're glad she arrived safely. Magenta took a tumble today--right off the edge of a piece of cat furniture. We're not sure if she was stumbly before she fell and that caused the fall, or if she fell and became stumbly from the fall. Whatever--she's a bit off. We have her in a pen this morning, with a heater pad and anti-inflammatories in her. We were concerned that she would stumble and fall off something again. She needs to rest and be a bit sturdier before coming out of her pen.

Someone asked about Macallan. Yes, Macallan wasn't feeling so good a couple days ago. He had a bit of a sore throat. But, he's much better now. We have Jonah (Covie cat) in Thumper's Room since yesterday. He too has been rather punky and not eating. Jonah's birthday is 7/15/99, so he has a little age on him. Oh.....Judy S just told me that he ate a little of the Bondi-Licks! We will still give him fluids today. BOndi said she'll gladly share her Bondi-Licks.

We had an adoption on Sunday! Drake went to his new home. He went to a family that has adopted from us before. Drake is specifically for their son's birthday who loves cats. A very good home. We have also taken in a new cat. His name is Boing, a handsome grey/brown tiger and white. Boing is about 8 months old and a male. Today we have 3 of our cats at the vets for their physicals and surgeries. The 3 are Boing, Haylow and Sylvia.

This is such an awesome video, made by one of our webcam friends, Phil P. Check it out at: youtube.com/watch?v=3I1Se0WhByg  It's all about FFRC cats and "our FFRC song", Lean on Me. Thank you Phil for sharing this with us. 

Vote, vote, vote!! We are still in #1 for State and Overall! Isn't that just wonderful?!! I'm thrilled and grateful. Please remember to vote daily at: tinyurl.com/ffrcvote  If we can come in #1 position overall when it's over on 4/28, FFRC will receive a check for $10,000. Every vote is important to us. Thank you. 

Joyful is coming along. She has a slight eye infection that we're working on--cleaning her eye 2-3 times daily. It's already looking much better. Gallant is awesome and is in the final stage of his healing. He's been here 4 weeks. The fur will take quite some time to grow back. We will see how much fur comes back. But, he's happy, healthy and playful! 

Paddy Cakes says he'll trade you his toy for a vote!
