Wednesday, Jan. 9

It's snowing! It's snowing! Well....actually, it's snowing paper towels! Yes,indeed--we have a supply of paper towels now! The word last week was our supply of paper towels was low. Our friends have come thru again for us--to the tune of 95 rolls of it. Yes, that's right--95 rolls! Steve and I went to the movies last night and normally I don't do BOXES on movie night. But, when we got home, the front office was filled with BIG boxes. Had to open some so we could walk! It was wonderful!

Anonymous Costco Friend--15 rolls of Bounty
Widdletigger (on behalf of Zazatar!)--16 rolls of Basic Bounty
WendiLynn--20 rolls of Sparkle 
Aleda S--24 rolls of Bounty 
Susan G--20 rolls of Sparkle
So............that's a whole lot of paper towels and we are so so thankful!

We also had these donations--
Deb B/deb11111--donation thru PayPal for FFRC to help with yesterday's vet bills
Joseph V--donation thru PayPal for FFRC
CaSandra H/hencass--donation thru PayPal for FFRC to be used wherever needed
David F--donation for FFRC thru PayPal

We had our vet day yesterday. It was very interesting! JoeBob was neutered--mission accomplished. He's doing great. He was such a lover bug there! Then, Gallant was given a good look over. They were quite impressed with his healing abilities! He was such a goooood boy there--happy to be petted and happy to show off his progress! They feel he will continue to heal just fine! Then there was Engelina. Her x-ray was done of her front left leg--the one that is bent and causes a bit of problems sometimes. They also took an x-ray of her front right leg too. Right leg was normal. But, now we know why her left leg is as it is. It's called Radial Agenesis. She's missing her radial bone--it's completely gone. Her ulna is there, but doesn't have a real good attachment to the joint. So, that is why her leg has a deviation. But, the good news is that it's ok! She can go her entire life just as she is. Now, if she starts having a great deal of pain or the leg becomes not very usable, then sometimes they do an amputation. Time will tell, but she will be adoptable! 

The door is open! Cat's Corner Room is now open and Gallant and Joyful are both out cruising. We may still put them back in for naps and quiet time, but for the most part, they are out! Gallant came out first and is just casually cruising about. Joyful came out on her own and seems to be comfortable with the other cats. We'll keep encouraging people-contact with her, nice and slow though. The one thing we have all noticed though, is she does not like being picked up. Remember, the person that did the abuse, was a kicker. So, maybe being picked up is too scary for her, maybe her ribs hurt? But, regardless, she is starting to like being petted! 

We also have a very very slight fungus here in the rescue center. There's 3 cats with a tiny spot of it on them. So, they have already had their fungus-bath and the entire rescue center is on fungus-meds. This use to be a hard problem to deal with, but not anymore. The meds do take care of the problem. They'll be just fine!

It's a fairly nice temperature day out today, considering it's January. We have a door open and two windows! Later this week is suppose to be almost 60 degrees! The cats are loving the windows being open. Possibly may open the outdoor enclosure for them too!

The tree of cats!
