Friday, May 22

What a beautiful day it is. Sun is shining, blue sky, birds are singing and the air is warm! Love it. So do the cats--they love the windows!

Dr. Bill came early this morning again to check on Derecho and gave him another adjustment. He thought Derecho's alignment was much better. He's still receiving his anti-inflammatory med. And he is walking better--is able to get his feet under him now and is steadier. I'm sure each day will get better! He's enjoying the extra pampering!

The 14 kittens have been enjoying the fun, play time here in the Main Area. A couple times a day, we get the 14 kittens together for exercise and socialization. They run all about, up the palm tree, up and down the Kuranda Towers--just all over! They are healthy, happy and so very sweet!

The Covies are out today running around in the sunshine. They so love being out. The Porchies are doing great and frequently are seen in the playground area playing. The Barnies are also good and stay close to the grey barn and the big red barn. 

We had BOXES last night. I am so very grateful for your support.

We have more names! Our new newest arrivals are a sister/brother group. The black male is now called India. The grey female is now called McKaela. Both names are from Name a Cat names. Both are doing great and are now in the back Thumper's Room, with the other 14 kittens. They arrived a bit shy, but are now climbing and playing with all the other kittens. So nice to see. 

Tomasina had a seizure this morning. While her paws are looking better and are being treated, this morning was hard. We did have a little light shed on the problem. Accidently, a chemical had been spilled in the car she traveled in and it's very possible that she had gotten into it. This was completely unintentional. This would explain some of the trouble we are having with her. Our vet is aware and is looking into it for us. In the meantime, she's being given lots of TLC.

I would like to extend a thank you for the following Ada Jane memorials made--Gill H from UK, Helen D/eaglespirit, Lucy/lu-little, Mary Ann B from SC.  I appreciate this.

I received a bookmark with the following saying, which I love:
Watch your thoughts for they become words.
Choose your words, for they become actions.
Understand our actions, for they become habits.
Study your habits, for they become your character.
Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
