Sooty had her surgery on Weds. She's doing pretty good. She had a bit of a rough day on Weds. in that her temperature kept spiking to 103-104, going down and then going up again. But it's down now. Stillhave her on soreness meds and antibiotics. She's resting in Dodger's Pen. Today we will move her to her Cat's Corner Room that she likes. Hoping this weekend she will be up and about more. She is still purring!
Tomorrow morning and early afternoon I won't be here. It's that time of year--my friend Chris and I will be going to the annual Cat Show in Perrysburg. I can't wait. And no, I won't be coming back with any cats---I've never done that! But I sure like to look at all the breeds and talk to the owners about them. And the vendors---oh, what fun! I'm sure there will be a toy that will intrigue me to buy it for the kitties! I'll be back early to mid afternoon as we have people coming to look at the cats.
We had BOX and ENVELOPES last night! I am grateful for you all.

Good news in regards to Scooper. She is doing great! It's always so nice to hear back and to confirm that all is good with the adoptions.
I am amazed at how fast our surgery slots have filled up. For our 2/20 we are full--we've juggled numbers a bit and now have 8 spays and 16 neuters. For the 3/7 Transport Project, we have been allotted to have more boys--our numbers are now 21 spays and 17 neuters.
We now have our Voucher Program ready to go. If you live in this area and would be willing to transport your cat yourself to HumaneOhio, we will give you a voucher to help pay for this. An indoor cat (male or female) is $45. An outdoor cat (male or female) is $25. Our FFRC voucher is worth $20 off of these costs. You would have to call HumaneOhio to set up your apointment and then contact me here at FFRC (419-393-2400) to receive your voucher. You can't beat this---please...don't let your cat reproduce. There is simply not enough homes. We WANT to help you to get your cat spayed or neutered. Call us at FFRC.
Want to hear a story? I've been reading stories at BOX time if time permits. But, yesterday I was working in my computer and came across an old file that was from years ago when we did a fundraiser called Be an Earth Angel. I just so happened to read Dodger's story last night but this is a longer version of that, written by our friend Cantoncat.
"His story is all too familiar. He was, by all accounts, a very loved cat. But the owner that cared for him, that loved him passed away. The owners family packed up the house and locked up the doors. They put the cat out to fend for himself.
