Thursday, Oct. 17

Another pick up load went to the postal office for the Day Sale items! Some of the packages will arrive at  their destinations today! As always, if there are any errors, please let me know.

This morning the door that separates the front Welcome Room Office and the main area was opened for a few hours so the cats could go back and forth. We were trying to encourage Paul's cats to come on in and join the rest of the gang. I know MiMi and HoHos came in for a while. The Main Area cats eagerly went thru the door to the back Thumper's Room, so lots of new friendships hopefully are starting to be made. Each time doing this will be a little easier on all of them.

Barky, Markie and Zarkey are doing great. They are partly on the dish and partly on the syringe now. Little Pasha is feeling stronger and is gaining weight. We are keeping her on antibiotics so she will be ready for her surgery on Saturday.

We had BOXES last night!  So many wonderful people "out there" that we're so grateful for!

Lorenzo is wonderful--that boy sure can purr. He was again playing with Derecho's tail this morning.  Poppy's chocolate colored fur is starting to take on more of the black look, now that she's becoming healthier. Such a pretty longhair black kitten. Juby and Kukster are two of a kind--both so active, so playful and ornery, yet super affectionate.

Whiska and Snapper are two nice teenager cats. They're siblings and love to play. Both really enjoy runnng the orange wheel in the Kabana Room. London sometimes will jump on and be the 3rd running partner. If they pay attention, they can all three run at one time!

We will come up with an Afghan Sale soon--one that runs the 24 hour kind of Sale. As soon as a date is picked, we will let you know.

All 6 of Paul's cats will have their physicals on Saturday when Dr. Darcy is here. Joline and Joyful are both doing great. Joyful was laying on the desk with her front paws folded on top of each other, looking so comfortable! 

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light."  Thanks to my family, volunteers and FFRC Nation who continues to inspire me to continue this rescue work.

Azar--one wonderful Porchie boy.
