I want to extend a special thank you to Mich & Vern for coming to FFRC and doing a major Flash Sale for us. This money that was raised by yesterday's Flash Sale will help us tremendously with our operational costs. I so appreciate their kindness, giving of their time and for the fun that they make these Flash Sales. 

We are kitten overloadeth.  We also have names! First, we took in 3 new kittens. 
Elsie is a grey/white female kitten, arrived at 5 1/2 weeks old, with much damage done to both eyes from a virus. She was found by herself. Her birthday is 6/27/15. Right now she cannot see out of either eye, but we're working on better eye health with eye ointment and oral antibiotics.
Tara and Dutchy are sister siblings, just brought in last night. They were found by Julie, a volunteer, so tiny yet all alone outside. They are 4 1/2 weeks old. Their birthday is 7/5/15. 

You've already been introduced to these 3 kittens, but they too now have names!
Morgan Daniel is our cuterebra kitten. He's a brown tiger, arrived when he was 4 1/2 weeks old. His birthday is 7/30/15. He is doing awesome. Barely can see the wound on his neck anymore.
Squeeky is the full calico, with a little tiger mixed in. She arrived too at 4 1/2 weeks. Her birthday is 4/29/15. She is doing great. She's the one that walks around meowing/squeeking!
Snookie is the white calico. She arrived at 3 1/2 weeks old. Her birthday is 7/6/15.  She was also found all by herself alongside a road. She's struggling a bit--actually lost weight. I think today we're making a little headway though. 

All the above names are from the Name a Cat names. 

Amani is a gorgeous kitten--so sleek, so shiny and ever so sweet. Cayden is walking with much confidence now. He loves to play! Rapture is beautiful--her fluffy fur is so so pretty. Trucker continues to do well. His poo statue:  excellent! Still so thankful for this!  Paul and Phillip are two sweetie kitties. They both have spotty dotties--very handsome babies. 

Just in case you notice Vernon and Seymour's tails--yes, they each have a bit of fur clipped off. Both apparently received a scratch or bite on their tails. Probably happened on Tuesday. Nothing serious, but clipping the fur allows for air flow and for us to clean the areas thoroughly. They are both on antibiotics. No worries! 

What goes hand in hand with rescue work?  Everyone knows this---it's spaying and neutering, of course! We are working on a big project here at FFRC. Still working on the details. As soon as things are more concrete, will fill you in! It'll be after August 15 that we know more details! Exciting!
