Weds. June 17

My blogs are getting a bit sparse right now. This week and next week are going to be extremely busy getting details done for the Catahon. I am also a bit light on my emails so please have patience with responses. I sure appreciate that. This Catathon is our main Fundraiser of the year and we put our all in it. 

First, I'd like to say thanks. We had BOXES Monday evening. No matter how busy we all are, it's very important to always express our gratitude.

Eartheyes/Margaret--2-40 lb bags of Precious Litter, a great cat scratcher lounge

So....a very busy day ahead of us on Saturday. 

The 5 returned cats are doing wonderful. Markie and Barky are already looking in thru the screen door. They're thinking they'd like to join in the Main Area's fun. Hark is coming along also. Cubby was shy at first, but now he comes and meets and greets us. MaryKay is still rather shy. We're lavishing on the attention to all 5 in hopes of helping them acclimate to us quickly. They're already all up to date on everything from their owner. 

The two new kittens are also doing great. The boy (beige/white) is now named Armstrong, after our Mayor Bob. The grey/white girl is now named Bows. Both are rambunctious kittens. They sure know how to flip and run and play! Their appetites are good. They are now caught up on their vaccines and worming. The slight URI they arrived with is so much better. And they're clean---wow, were they dirty. They were found in a wheel well of a car at a Defiance factory. The owner of the car heard and then saw them. He called us and then his wife brought them in. 

Big thanks to Joni and Derck for their Flash Sale on Saturday night--sure appreciated their help and your support! We try, as soon as PayPals or checks arrive, to get those items out very quickly! 

This Sunday is the beginning of the Catathon Raffle. It starts anytime on Sunday! It ends on Weds. at 9:00. Tickets are $5, as usual. Because this is for the Catathon, we have A thru O items. That makes 15 items!  Wow! These items are all things that have been donated for the Catathon! 

Take care everyone. Have a glorious day. Maiden Heaven sent this note to me long ago. It's from Albert Schweitzer and I've always enjoyed it:
In everyone's life at sometime, our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle our inner spirit.

YOU all are friends to FFRC and constantly rekindle us here. Friendships are so wonderful!
