Saturday, June 29

Four of our calicos were adopted today. Courtney, who is from Maine and has been visiting this week, left this morning with her precious cargo on board. She will arrive home tomorrow evening. In the meantime, Courtney will keep in touch with me by text as to how their trip is going. I will pass on her notes. She adopted Kitty Q, Catsparella, Maui and Courbet. 

Next week on Wedsnesday, Pixell will be spayed. We will also be taking Intrepid on the same day for his eye repair. The skin around his eye was badly cut by his accident. It was repaired once, but it didn't hold. Dr. Darcy will do a different surgery on his eye to close this up. So, these two will travel together next week. 

As many of you may know, Emaline has had a very poor past two days. This sweet girl just wants to be loved on. Her day is perfect when she can be in my lap or lay on me by my neck and shoulders. I thoroughly enjoy it. She becomes a velcro girl. Her medical problems sometimes gets the best of her. So, back to full treatment last night for her. This morning she is feeling better. I have promised her a good quality of life and I intend to keep my promise to her. Everyday is a different day for her. Her treatments are having to be done more often to keep her comfortable. Will keep you posted. 

Pumpkin and Bearta are play fighting by my feet--jump, spring and land on each other is the name of the game! Solee is playing with her spring. Seven cats are on the window ledge watching the birds. Pania is snoozing away in her favorite nap spot. Joyful let me pet her full strokes today! Butch loves to play with shoes. Navi and Zsa Zsa were napping together on the pink poof.

Remember to check Cantoncat's website at  Canton has been kind enough to put up the Future Names of Cats and the Sponsor a Cat, from the Catathon. Thank you so much for this, Canton. We're still working on getting all the names/sponsors to her, but if you don't see your name after a reasonable amount of time, don't hesitate to e-mail me!  

We've had a report from PetFinders. The top 13 cats that were viewed were: Keesha, Zelda, Karena, Octavia, Arden, Raza, Dove, Sara, Snappy, Tabitha, Goodness, Weeja and Whisk. 13 wonderful cats!

I'll let you in on a "happening" for my family! We have been searching for a second horse. As you may know, we returned Georgia to the rescue, due to behavior problems. I was very fearful that someone was going to get hurt. Because of the amount of people that visit, I couldn't take any more chances with her possibly hurting someone. I normally believe in "keeping forever", but in this case, people's safety was a real worry. But, today, we have a second horse coming that we are thrilled about. This horse is 17 years old, a gelding, extremely safe and a joy to ride. He will be arriving around 5:30, so BOXES are iffy! It depends on what's happening on the farmyard! 

Kenco and Tatiana are playing in the sunshine by my desk--tossing about a catnip banana. Fiona just strolled by with Sammie right behind her. They are quite the buddies. Zelda is on my desk. In the mornings, when I go in to feed the front Thumper Room's kittens, I flick on the porch light to wake up the Porchies. By the time I go out with their breakfast plates, all of them are there, looking pretty sleepy, but hungry! Yesterday the Covies had the run of the farmyard. 

The sleepies overtook these three kittens! Taken just this morning.
