Tuesday, Feb. 10

Trucker's box came!  It's here! And we've begun his new treatment. This particular treatment is for Treatment Resistant Diarrhea in Cats.  That definitely would be Trucker. We'll keep you all posted. Trucker's already had his run in the house for the morning--he loves it. Chirps, meows, does so many vocals while he's running around!

Ike is out and about in the Main Area. He finally came up 2 days ago, spent his first day watching things from the Kitty Campus Room. Now, he's relaxed and is even enjoying the Kitty Kabana Room. Ike is really a very nice boy.

Bender is laying here beside me--truly takes up my whole desk top---I love it. He so loves his belly rubbed. NeMoo--remember when she first came in, she wasn't so sure about the other kittens? She's doing so good now--is playing and running with them. 

We had 2 adoptions yesterday! First to leave was Chauncey. He went to a home with 2 young boys that love cats. Then Soon-Ja left for her new home. She went to a home with a young girl. Two good, happy homes!  More coming up!

Happy Birthday to Ada Jane. Today she is 20 years old. We have had her here in the Rescue Center for 10 years. Ada Jane has always been a gentle soul. She had a couple birthday cards this morning. All the cats enjoyed an extra yummy treat of chicken, in her honor. Ada Jane enjoyed it too. 

We had BOXES last night---many many thanks!

They come in a royal blue and a purple. Lettering is white. We will have sizes small to 4XLG. They are of good quality. More info later! 

Seymour continues to do good. He loves to run from the Welcome Room Office to the back Thumper's Room. He has come up to the Main Area twice today, but then goes to the door to go in the back again. He's having fun!  It's so interesting to me how the siblings Anne Shirley, Triumph and Mogo play so much together and nap together. Scott has shed out one of his 2 white whiskers--the one on the bottom. He did this before and they came back white. We'll see what happens this time!

Felicity and Milo just trotted by--they love to bird watch. August is playing with Leopold. Rebecca ate a pretty good breakfast today by herself. Tammy is walking around with a coil toy in her mouth--I think Paddy Cake taught her this trick. And here comes Nelson with a coil spring in his mouth too!
