March 22, Tuesday

That Elsie---she truly has zero fear.  She's here, there and everywhere! Up on the palm tree, next racing on the wheel, up high on a catwalk, climbing the rope pole in the office, chasing Hensley's tail, talking back to Coralie, up on top of Dodger's Pen.  And how does she do all this? Just because it's Elsie. She truly is amazable! 

This blog is particularly full of thanks. It's important to me to always to give these thanks.

I'd also like to say a special thanks to you all....I am truly humbled by all the birthday well wishes. You made my day special and I shall always remember that. 

Please keep our Belgium friends in your thoughts and prayers. We hope they are all safe and that peace will be restored. 

We have 2 new cats. Rhea is all black with a tiny bit of white on her neck. She arrived Sunday morning. She was spotted at a person's house several times and was then brought to FFRC.  Her skin is dry, she was hungry and very friendly. Her birthday is 10/20/14--so she's a year and a half. 

The second cat arrived yesterday. She is an all white Persian. She came from the same place that Beaumont came from. Her show name is Tiffany but she is now called KinneyKat. She is 2 1/2 years old. Her birthday is 7/23/13. She's lived her whole life in a cage other than for cleaning. Just like Beaumont, I'm sure she will realize that her upcoming freedom is going to be fun! She's just a tiny girl--so petite. She has short fur right now but I've seen her pictures when she's fully grown out and she is a beauty. She's a sweetie and loves her chin and ears rubbed.
Both of these new cats have names from our Name a Cat list.

Little updates!  Paddy Purr's nose looks wonderful. We do a check on that cute little nose often. Seymour's leg where he had that awful sore last year is just fine too. We also do a thorough check of that once a week. We're not noticing any problems with Samson Wolf--so far, so good. What a wonderful sweet boy he is. He's getting so big. Felicity is really coming out more to get pettings. Gia and Makalah Sue both have a bit of a cold and are being treated. 

Shawnee is such a good mama. She sure loves her babies. They are getting fuzzier all the time. Such round tummies. They're starting to stagger around a bit.
