Thursday, June 9

The herd of kittens are now in the front Main Area!  Have to do the "kitty shuffle" once again. No picking feet up high!  These 17 kittens (with Nathaniel) and the 3 greys are super sweet--very active and all have nice round tummies! Have to love those FFRC tummies!  We have a few of them on hold but they will have to wait until after their spay/neuter date which is June 25. They still go back in the Thumper's Room for their night time sleep.

We had BOXES last night! So many thanks are given to YOU!

As most of you already know, our dear friend Betz has passed away on the 7th, in the morning. She was a real treasure to FFRC and will be greatly missed. Always a kind soul who loved the cats and her FFRC friends. We have had some donations made in her memory and to sponsor her to favorite cats Walter, Walter, Walter and Cutie. We will have a leaf for the Tree of Giving made for Betz. 
Many thanks to these folks for your donation for Betz--Fran D frin FL, Kittiesmom, Kikinanz, Snoopymom, Kimkost, Gusti, Jacksmom, Pilvi, lannml, ju-in-ji.

I've heard from the mom that adopted Jinkee, now known as Jinx. She says--Jinx is the perfect fit for the family, loves the kids, belly rubs and the windows to watch the birds!

It's been 2 weeks since Hensley has had a seizure! Hoping this means his medication is working! He's napping here beside me right now, along with Paddy Purr and Gustave.  Nathaniel is right by me on the floor with Shawnee hovering over him! 

We took in a new cat. His name is Brayer, a Name a Cat name. He's a brown tiger boy about 1 1/2 years old. He's a lucky boy---he is at the top of the statistics for having leukemia---an outside, unneutered male with bite wounds. But..his tests show negative. He will be neutered very soon and probably put in the Big Red Barn to have those Barnies as his friends. Brayer will be a nice addition to the farmyard---a real sweetie.  He's on antibiotics for his wounds, which are already healing. He also came in fairly dehydrated--drank, drank and drank some more!
