November 2, 2016

Wow---what a beautiful fall we are having. Temps in the 70's. Tree colors are stunning! The farm animals are so enjoying this too. I even saw the donkey kicking her heels up yesterday and was sprinting around the farmyard! We have the windows wide open here in the Rescue Center. The cats are enjoying laying in the sills. Another bonus--no electricity being used for air conditioners or furnaces! Yeah!

Yesterday was our Flash Sale. Many thanks to Mich, Lynnette, all the purchasers, the makers & donators of the items and the mods for helping to keep us organized during the Sale! We made approximately $1370 from this sale. Wonderful.  These funds will go towards the leukemia/fiv/heartworm test kits, antibiotics and a batch of distemper vaccines! Thanks to you all!

On Friday, our Jordaan will be making a trip to Dr. P's office to get his neuter done. There is a chance we may not be able to have another FFRC surgery until Dec. (too many conflicts) and because he's a teenager, he really needs to have his neuter be done.  Thanks to Beth who will be taking him there. 

Breanna had her first outing in the Main Area today. She spent some time in the playpen. A few kittens ventured in with her. Breanna does cruise about in the back Thumper's Room and eats just fine by herself. 

Monday is our next HumaneOhio Transport day. Currently we have 43 cats registered, knowing that not all will probably make it. Sometimes it's hard to catch those feral cats. 

Paddy Purr, Paddy Cake, Joline, Todd and Felicity had their tummies and bottoms trimmed this morning---sure helps with the grooming. The Paddys also had their feet trimmed---they are a bit of messy boys at times! 

At this moment:  Paddy Purr is snoring on my desk. Hensley is napping right beside me. Endure is on my lap purring.  Ashlyn is cuddling with Bonnie. Mandisa is playing with a catnip toy. Joyful, Todd and Koda are in the Kabana watching out the windows. Coralie and Merri are in the towel cabinets enjoying their private naps. Cutie is looking out the window in Kitty Kampus room. All seems to be at peace.

Sevaun was playing this morning at breakfast with her turbo track. She chirped and said: There is nothing better than a friend--unless it is a friend with a pizza.  She has her priorities, of course!
