FRIDAY, APRIL 26, 2013

After waiting all day yesterday for an update from The Animal Rescue Site's voting, it finally came up refreshed this morning and we're still ahead, with a little more of a lead! I'm so thrilled. Please keep voting. Voting ends Sunday night, with the results on Weds.  We've been ahead every single day of this contest and we're going to stay ahead! From the very bottom of my heart, I'm saying thank you for all of your support. Please keep voting!

Our 5 College Cats are back. They think they're pretty smart, being there at the college for 4 days! Zelda is here on my desk, sleeping. The results:
Paddy Purr--x-rays good, lab work good, shows a 5 out of 6 heart murmur (even in sleeping)  So, we will follow up with him with our vets
Zelda--kidney levels mildly high, x-rays normal, other lab work normal, found a tapeworm. Treated for tapeworms, we will repeat kidney levels later 
Haylow--lab work good, x-rays good
Sprint--was neutered, lab work good, x-rays good
Pushkins--lab work good, x-rays good, I had asked for a tear duct test, was positive for plugged ducts.
He is scheduled for a tear duct flush today with our vets.
All five cats were microchipped and given full physicals. We will do this next week too with 5 other cats. It was a good experience for FFRC and for the students. Please rest assured that vets are their teachers!

Walter is making friends! But, oh my, that boy loves to play! Every toy is his to play with! He's a lovebug. Mobility wise he's very good. His head bobble and head sway is noticeable, but for the most part, he's quiet. But, when he gets the "startles", he stiffens and goes thru a minute or two of frantic-ness. He is having so much fun!

We did not have BOXES last night because I had that laser therapy class at our vet's office. It was very beneficial and gave me more confidence using it. It's a wonderful tool that we now have at our disposal. 

We have visitors! Lots of visitors and we love it! More are coming! Late afternoon I will be picking up Janet and Napa at the airport. Needless to say, I'm so sorry, but boxes probably won't be able to happen tonight. But, on Saturday, we'll make up for it. Remember at 6 pm, we will first do the LIVE afghan auction (see yesterday's blog). 

Dion, the construction guy was here yesterday. He has probably 80% of the siding up! It's coming along nicely. 

I've heard now three times in regards to County, Buckeye and Cypress. County has claimed his new home 100% as his! Buckeye and Cypress are now settling in and being more comfortable. They've decided they like the couch and to watch TV with the grandparents! This thrills me that they've "made it"! 

Both Paddy Cake and Paddy Purr spent their night in Kitty Kastle with Deb11111.  Paddy Cake promised on his heart that he would use the litterbox if he could go with his brother! We are teaching our visitors how to feed baby kitties--they are becoming great kitty mamas! 

Louis's new mama is the baker for Dough Box Bakery in Archbold (extra yummy bakery goods). She arrived today with their Pull-Aparts and 4 different kinds of cookies! Tomorrow she will bring us 6 of their pies. We're talking being spoiled here and we love it! She has given Louis a new new of Guido. Come visit us and share in this good food. 

What a wonderful weekend and friends, super wonderful cats and kittens and looking forward to Sunday night when the voting ends so we can plan our party! 

Catsparella and her 7 babies. She is a wonderful cat.
