Monday, December 9

The Day Sale is over and I'm very thankful for the results. Everything that we had up for sale has been sold. In the "behind the scenes", during the sale, people are already in the Mail Room organizing the items in preparation of sending out. Today will be a big day of packing and shipping. We want everything out asap, as many are for Christmas gifts. Thank you to the mods for helping with this event. Big thanks to Jenni C, Lynnette, Angie and Bill, Amy, Dawn E, Jimmy.  Thanks to all the people who put their bids in and thanks to those that won! All around, it was fun! Thanks to Teresa B for the pizza--it was scrumptous.

Ernest had his 8 big tension sutures removed on Saturday. As was promised him, he could come out of his room after these were removed. So, during the day he's out and about. Mostly he's up on top of my desk again with Alaska. He's been sleeping at night in June's Room. His incision is healing beautifully. Hopefully, we will find the results out today.

We had two adoptions over the weekend. Intrepid left with his new dad. Sounds like this will be a very nice home for Intrepid. Clark also left. I've received a picture of him already climbing on his cat walks. He looks very happy! Pasha did not leave on the weekend due to the weather but should be leaving today.

We had BOXES on Friday night! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Mary E the volunteer was here this morning. We accomplished many things--cleaned ears, trimmed toenails, got the flea prevention applied to those that needed their monthly treatment, vaccinations caught up, wormings done. We also did 4 repeat FIV/leukemia tests (4 weeks after arrival) and they were all negative.  A good morning!

Rian is growing like a weed! What a nice kitten. Bella is all sprawled out about 3 1/2 feet. She's sleeping in a stretched out position. Melia is playing with one of the lazer bird toys--one of the best fun-providing toy ever. Preakness is trying to bury a mouse toy in the water bowl. Not sure how she thinks she can accomplish this, but she gets an A for effort!  Dodger is busy trying to bury another toy--the crinkle toy--under a big leggydew.  It's all in one giant heap. 

Tomorrow our sweetie threesome calicos will be leaving. Camilla, Sasha and Keeley will be going on a plane to reach their new mama Courtney in Maine. Big thanks to Connie D and Angie for their willingness to take them on their trip. Connie's carrier will have Camilla and Sasha and Angie's carrier will have Keeley. They will be leaving FFRC about 3:50 am tomorrow. I heard this morning, in the Kabana Room, a trio of singers singing "I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll be back again", etc.  They even had Octavia groovin' to the music! 

This Saturday is our next Surgery Day. We'll be working on Who is Due on, Wednesday. We'll be weighing and checking our list.
