They are doing great. Won't be long until the 10 kittens from the back will join the group of kittens in the Main Area. Watch out then--bunches of kittens running crazy! 

Sea Turtle is doing good, although in the last week she seems to have aged a bit. She loves the open window in the front Thumper's Room and spends alot of time there just watching things. She gets lots of pettings there too.  Our other oldster, Jessie is also doing good. Jessie is 16 years old, probably has Maine Coon in her and has a beautiful white bib. 

Today is Queen Bella's birthday. She is now 13 years old. That's so hard to believe. She was just 6 weeks when she arrived, all broke up from being hit by a car. Her rear right leg had to be removed. She also has some paralysis in her tail and the left rear leg. But, as you know, she gets along just fine. She's a zippy girl--can zoom and scoot just fine! She so loves spending her days out in the dog pen with Janie and Camie. They are good friends and often share the same cushies.  Also Happy Birthday to our wonderful Porchie Zavatar. Zavie will be 4 years old tomorrow. 

We have a new kitten. He's all black and is 6 weeks old. His birthday is 7/20/15. He was found at the end of our parking lot, alongside the road, on Sunday night by a volunteer. So grateful he wasn't hit by a car. This little guy appears to be another cat with mild CH. He's a friendly little guy and will be down today to play with the group in the back Thumper's Room. His name is Cecil, another Name a Cat name, for being brave and after a very loved big cat. 

Preakness is doing great. Her mid morning nap spot is on my desk, usually with Fredo beside her. Trucker and Magic are also taking their mid morning nap on a foam pad here in the office. Emmitt and Kazumi are razing it up--those two kittens have endless energy and can fly when they're playing! 

Solee is doing wonderful. Her favorite thing is her own plate of RC babycat food in the morning! Paddy Cake and Paddy Purr when to the beauty parlor yesterday---had their nails trimmed, their bottoms trimmed and the fur on their feet trimmed also. So handsome! Merit is such a beautiful calico--one of the sweetest, lovable calicos ever. 

11 more days to Catstock!
