Sunday, July 20

Rain, Rain, go away!   Wait, it hasn't rained here in a long time. But the cats and kittens are getting wet. What is going on?  It's raining INSIDE the Kitty Kabana!!  Yes, wet, wet, wet.  Our new baby grass needed a drink, so we turned the sprinkler on and moved it without checking where it was all going! Yep--right into the Kitty Kabana! Something exciting for the kittens!

Penelope and babies are doing pretty good.  She does spend some time away from them (in the pen), but that's ok.  As soon as they wiggle or meow, she feeds them! And their tummies are round---just the way we like them. Penelope is doing just fine. When kittens are weaned, it'll be her turn to act like a kitten and play!

We had an adoption this morning. Sweet Purrgo went to his new home. All in all, we had 12 applications for him and at least that many phone calls on him. We chose this particular family because they have adopted from us before, have other cats at home (which Purrgo would like) and between the mom/dad are home often enough and with the dad coming home at lunch. The new mom is even taking the day off of work tomorrow to be home with Purrgo!

All is fine on the farm grounds. The Covies are out for their day of cruising about today. Doesn't take then long to take off running when their door is opened! Both Mercy and Wilson are getting their stalls redone this week.  Mats are being picked up, new levels of stone put under and leveled and clean mats put back down. Will keep their big feet nice and dry! The goats are already dreaming of Catstock and who is going to poo first for bingo! The chickens are putting their dibs on Butter! Peacocks are dropping their feathers--time for their molt. We collect these and give at adoptions.

We have a new report from Petfinders. The top 15 cats are Purrgo, Camvi, Abner, Archer, Corby, Dexter, Ratchet, Dickens, Byron, Ming, Francis, Preakness, Corduroy, Kerri Kat and Mathew Scott. Remember, we don't put the cats or kittens on Petfinder until they are neutered or spayed.  This past week, our total views was 1,596.  

Sadie and Hamlin/Hope are doing good. Sadie would prefer that she would be the only cat, but hopefully she'll figure out a way to feel comfortable around others. We're keeping her in the Thumper Rooms where it's a bit less cats. Mahogany is becoming more comfortable and is out of her pen. She's starting to cruise about and was even on the desk napping! She is so beautiful. Joyful still calls the office and Thumper Rooms as her home--she's very happy there! And she loves the windows! 

All is fine here. Enjoy your day. Love on your cats and pets!
