Tuesday, December 17

Oh happy day! Our two new CH brothers will be here today. Well, actually they won't arrive until wee hours of the morning. Angie and Elizabeth have arrived in Florida safely. They are actually at this moment at the beach, waiting to return to the airport to pick up the two brothers. At 3:30 they will be getting the boys. I'm so anxious to know they are safely in our carriers and thru security. We have the top two pens in the back Thumper's Room all ready for them. They can go back and forth and of course be together. Soon though we will bring them up to Cat's Corner Room.

We had BOXES last night. You all never cease to amaze me. I am so grateful for the items received.

We also had a lovely poem by Derecho! That sweet boy is so clever! It was lovely!

We have constant entertainment here! On the window ledge by Dodger's Pen are several bird feeders, two of which are fastened to the window. There's usually several cats on the ledge during the day, watching the birds eat. Lately the cats are even trying to climb the window. The funny thing is that the birds know they are safe! They just sit there, eat and watch the cats!

We had two adoptions yesterday! Bugg and Wayne! Both went to families that have lots of time to give them TLC! These are happy homes! Both will have children that will love on them too!

We also have several cats on hold!  I'm so happy about this as I feel they are all going into wonderful homes. They are Ernest, Alaska, Raza, Arden & Meryln (all in the same home!), Miss Molly, Miss Marti, Sadler, George & Kona (these two together!). And we're working on several others--Ginger, Markie and Barky. Such great news!

Want some more great news? We have heard from the company that has the Precious Litter. This litter is superb.  It's very hard clumping and very little dust. Tomorrow in the afternoon, FFRC will be receiving 100 forty pound bags FREE from them! This is just wonderful. We are so grateful!

The kittens have been on the shelves and have been trying to investigate the upside down tree.  I can see the longing in their eyes! But, the tree is safe! Yesterday the cats had another ham bone! It's absolutely amazing how they can pick off every speck of meat from it. Lots of grinning cats around here!

Look at this smiling girl!  Zelda Belda!
