Teddy Bear is doing fair. He had a bit of a bumpy night last night, but breakfast was pretty good for him. Little Bit is doing great. The other two kittens are wonderful They have names!  The grey/white kitten is McSplash.  The black/white kitten is McSplish.  They are sisters and already a bit of orniness is showing!

All else is fine. I want to thank you so very much for the support you show to FFRC. Not only the helpful gifts, the monetary donations, but the friendliness that is shown. I look into our facebook pages and read the chat. People are kind to one another and so very welcoming and friendly. That means a lot to this rescue center. It's what we want to show as a rescue center--a kind attitude. I thank you for that. 

Taken off of facebook! Love it!
