Monday, July 15

Timothy, Soy Boy, Jonah, Olaf and Zelda all have birthdays today! A big Happy Birthday day!
Jonah--He arrived when he was just 6 weeks old. He came when Dawn and I were heavy into doing dog boarding. He became an office cat. He actually was the first Covie. He had a terrible leg injury which resulted in him losing a front leg. He arrived 8/23/99. He is 14 years old now.
Soy Boy--he got his name because he was found in a soybean field by a volunteer. He was just one year old. He arrived 2/27/08 and is now 6 years old. He is a Covie.
Timothy--he arrived on 7/14/08 as a one year old. Timothy is the cat that we "lost" for about 2 months, but a person down the road (4-5 miles) brought him here for me to see. I realized it was our wonderful Timothy! He's never left again! He is now 6 years old. He is a Covie.
Olaf--he arrived on 7/25/07 as a one year old. He is now 7 years old. He LOVES lap, to be petted and to greet our visitors. He was so very thin when he arrived, but not anymore! He is a Porchie.
Zelda--she arrived here also as a one year old. She had been stuck between a store wall and cement blocks. In trying to get herself out, she made tremendous sores on her hips and injured her elbows. This is why she limps on her front legs at times. She is now 3 years old. I do believe she is one of the prettiest cats ever to come to FFRC! She is in the Rescue Center, awaiting adoption. 

They will all get special yummy food today in celebration of their birthdays!

Updates: Camvie is eating all by herself now--she has a nice round belly. Kukster was limping on Saturday, so he's under half pen rest, which he doesn't mind. This morning he was walking normally again. The pinned leg should be very solid by now. What a wonder-cat! Intrepid is simply awesome. He's so wonderful. We still have 2 more eye sutures to remove (maybe today). The majority of the time, he walks straight. Puzzone--what a guzzler! This tiny baby can eat his weight in gruel daily by himself! She loves Camvie and Intrepid. Anna Marie--doing better every day. You can see her confidence growing. She spent a couple hours in the main area yesterday. 4-5 times we had to get her out of a predicament. She'll get into an area where she can't find her way our of. She willingly comes to us when we call her. She has a pretty hard head which is a good thing, as she bonks into things frequently. But, truly, yesterday she showed improvement. Moves nice and slow. Ming--I do believe I saw him smile yesterday! He's gained a bit of weight. His rear feet still will "wing out" often and his tail will forever go to the right. But, he's so happy and loves to be petted. We let him out some everyday to socialize with the other cats. He's really very good with them all.  Titoes--doing better every day. This kitten has a strong will to live. There has been several times that I thought he wouldn't make it. He's doing better, but still somewhat "fragile". We top him off with a syringe a couple times a day, but he's eating better now by himself. Especially iwhen he has Camvie and Puzzone to get him started! He's playing now for short periods and LOVES to be cuddled. 

Tomorrow Bearta will make her way to the vet's office for her spay. We'll do another spay/neuter day here for our FFRC cats, but probably not until August. We want Bearta to be in her home by then, so it's off to the vet's for her to get the job done. 

Right now, Kenko is destroying my desk. Is it any wonder that I lose important notes? I explain to him every day which pile of papers he can play in and which he cannot. Of course, he doesn't listen! You may see 2 adults here this week. They are Ebbie and Vollie and they belong to Caryn and the girls. Kerstyn is spending the week here while Kellen is at Dragonfly Camp, a 22Q camp. Raza  is in the window, laying very low, chirping at the bird feeders! AP is behind me, sleeping so peacefully. Solee has already talked Sarah into several treats this morning. Danika and Theo just pounced on Patches. The race is on for them! I never tire of watching them. 

I just read this in a magazine: "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."  Oh so true. Let's be kind to one another and make someone feel good today! 

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for your support.

Beautiful Joyful taking a nap.
