Sunday, Jan. 12

Things are going great here at FFRC. We had four more adoptions yesterday! First, Miss Marti, my desk friend, went home with Tammy. A long 9 1/2 hours later, they made it home. Sounds like Miss Marti has fit right in already. Love the picture on facebook!

In the afternoon, Mogo went to his new home. We had a couple that had come here 3-4 times looking for a kitten to be spoiled. And they found Mogo! Then, in the afternoon, Curt and Connie arrived to take home their precious cargo---Turtle and HoHos. These are the last of Paul's 6 cats. But knowing that Paul loved Curt and Connie both, made this an extra sweet adoption. Connie already told me today that they snuggled right into bed for the night! 

Freemont continues to do better and better. He's a wobbly boy, but he is improving. He's got the hang of our floor and he wants into the Main Area very much already. That will happen soon. He absolutely loves legs and feet--I think he uses them for support! He adores people and is very good with the other cats.

Sweet Coralie. What a doll she is. So very patient with all of her treatments. I took her dressings off this morning so she could have grooming time. All 4 feet are still a bit swollen and she has some tissue hardness. Her ears will end up being about half the size as normal--but she says ears are overrated anyhow! I just realized today the extent of her tail damage--more than I thought. She will probably lose half of her tail. Again---she's not too concerned about this either. She thinks short tails are in style. It's more her feet that I'm concerned about. Time will tell where this is heading. She'll probably get a 4-foot soak today. What a lovely personality she has. She loves a good long belly rub.

Piet--have you noticed how wide his ribcage is? There's a reason--he has his wings tucked alongside those ribs. Yes, that is correct--wings. That girl can be on the floor one second and half way up my back the next second. She is fast--I know she must have wings! What a sweetie she is too. 

Zata is doing wonderful. We are back to full FFRC tummy. She's eating great and thoroughly enjoying it. Miss Eltoe is unbelievable. You almost half to look twice now at her--she's no longer skeletal but sashaying around here with a tummy on her too!

Our snow is about 1/3 of the way gone. Temps have been in the high 30's and low 40's. The Covies got out to cruise about on Friday and they will do so again today. The sun is shining! The birds are eating heavily at the feeders which is fun for the cats in the Kitty Kabana Room. All is fine here. The cats and kittens are healthy. We're a happy group of volunteers too!
