Tuesday, Jan. 27

Drool and Purr---do your cats do this?! Some cats like to purr and some cats, when they become relaxed and happy, let's the drool happen! We have some of the droolers here. Jonah is King of the Drool Cats! He just let's it flow when he's being petted! 

Addison is fully intuned with the other cats now! He prances, runs, plays and eats with all of the cats. His self confidence is building! This morning I saw the 3 siblings napping together---Anne Shirley, Triumph and Mogo. A very sweet picture. Rebecca is feeling better. She even ate a bit of breakfast by herself today but she was still syringed fed. I think she kinda enjoys that! 

We had an adoption yesterday. Star went to his new home. He actually hand picked this new mama. Met her close to the door and didn't give up. She picked him up, sat down to visit with him and he laid his head on her and took a bit of a nap! That's all it took---Star was picked!

We had BOXES last night! Many thanks to you all.
Faithy & Bobby--12 pack of Meow Mix cups, case of Friskies pate

I counted them---there are 8 cats here in the purple office with me that are black/white cats. Cuteness overload for sure! They are Bender, Honor, Bounty, Nelson, Floyd, Columbus, Jackson and Jersey. Talk about a cute room of cats!

It sounds like some of our pending adoptions will take place fairly soon. Mr. G will go this Saturday. Two kittens will probably leave on Thursday, depending on the weather. Not positive which two kittens yet! We have a confirmed date of 2/8 for Addison. Her new mama will be bringing her brother and mom and dad to visit FFRC for the adoption! 

I have this post right on my desk---it's one of my favorites and a good guideline! I would like to share it with you all.
"There comes a time in life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it.
You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good.
Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't.
Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

You all "out there" make me laugh and help me focus on the good. You give this rescue a "bounce" and the love shows. Life is indeed too short--let's love it and embrace it! And also embrace as many cats as we can!
