Sunday, August 24

What's white and grey and loves being on top of a mountain?  Why, it's Seymour!  He loves being at the top of the ramp in Kitty Kabana--he will spend hours there looking out the window! Two weeks from today is his adoption day. This is on extra awesome (and cute) boy!

We had an adoption this morning. Dexter went to his new home with Katie, to Pennsylvania. Dexter developed a possible food allergies which caused sores around his neck. After treatment, it has 99% cleared up. Katie will keep him on a non-fish food diet. Dexter is in for an awesome home---lots of love being given! So happy for him.

This coming Saturday is our next surgery day. This will a very busy day---many surgeries lined up already. Will weigh cats and kittens this week and make up the surgery list. Guaranteed it'll be a heavy duty list. 

Tomorrow is a big day---it's the beginning of our next Raffle.  Why do we do these raffles?  One, it's a fundraiser for FFRC.  These Raffles are the main things that keep us going. They help with our utility bills, with our people that work here, with insurance bills, test kits, surgical needs, medications (one bottle of fungus meds are $660.60 and we usually need 3 of these to complete treatment on everyone), even things like paint, wood needs, screws/bolts, there's a zillion needs! Second, we are given awesome, beautiful items that are meant to be used for a Raffle! 

This Raffle includes 5 items--2 of the wonderful books that Pat donated.  One is on some of the FFRC cats, the other is on the CH cats of FFRC. These are extra awesome books. The pictures are those taken by Pat. We also have a Laurel Burch bag and 2 beautiful afghans. The Raffle starts tomorrow, Monday and ends at 8:00 am on Thursday.  BOXES will be 5:30 pm on Thursday and the Raffle will be at 6:00 pm.  Don't forget--there's nice consolation prizes too!  Raffle tickets, as always, are $5 each. Can purchase one or how ever many you'd like. Just send a PayPal or a check. If sending a check, be sure it's here Weds or before. I thank you for your support of our past Raffles.

Samara will go tomorrow morning back to the vet's office to get another x-ray and an update on her fractures. There's a possibility that her pin will also be pulled. She still has much healing ahead of her, but so far, she's doing really good relaxing and resting in her big pen. She loves the hammock!

Zertyle is doing good. Her complicated spay went very well on Friday. It was confirmed that she needed some teeth pulled, which was also done. She's a typical sphinx cat--loves to be covered up with a blankie. When she came back from the vet's office, we just covered her up and she slept for hours! She's feeling much better. 

Are you coming to Catstock?  Maybe you can help me. If you are interested in helping to run a Catstock game please let me know. I'll get your name on the list now so we're more organized before 9/6.  Don't feel you have to do this, as I'm sure there will be enough people. We want everyone to have fun!
