Midwest Community Federal Credit Union came to FFRC as part of their Do Good Now promotion for Giving Tuesday. They brought cat toys, cash donation & check donations from their employees. It's wonderful to be a part of a town that has a community that cares. 

Did you walk anywhere today?  Run, perhaps?  Please remember you can help FFRC by connecting with ResQwalk!  The app is free--just download and then every time you walk, run and bike, turn it on and help FFRC!  We benefit from every mile done.  For September, FFRC just received $27.37.'s good for FFRC and good for you!  We have made a total of $582.30--and this is all by doing something healthy!  Thanks for your help! 

Lucy, Ethel and Betsy are now on the floor in the back Thumper's Room all the time now. They are doing good.  We're just giving Ethel a little more "relax time" before bringing them to the Main Area.  She's better each day! They are the zooming bunch--I think they must have little wings on each leg---so fast and so fun to watch. 

Update on our next Fun-Raiser. We have postponed it a bit. It will now start on Friday, the 9th and be done on the 12th, Monday at 9 am. This will be a Fun-Raiser with many wonderful things that would be great for Christmas! This will be our last Christmas orientated event. Want to know what's  in it?!!  Ok---a 50" TV,  iPad (64 gb), 2 Kindle Fires (with additional 32 gb that can be added), 2 Rosemary afghans, 2 Pet Cot beds with Canopys,  Bago's Hello Kitty Quilt with matching pillowcase, Mr. Kerswill's handmade cat bed, Canon Selphy Compact Photo Printer and a Warpedeedoo.  More info coming. This will also be posted on Chatters and a slide show will be on the cam for viewing! 

I would like to let you know that we lost Keryn yesterday. What a sweet gentle soul. We have a diagnosis which she could not have survived with. She is now in peace. I'm glad she was here and had all the comforts she wanted these few days. 

Our CH population has been upped.  Here is what has happened the last few days:

Chester arrived 11/30. He's a brown tiger. I do not yet have his birthdate but he is approx. 7 months old. He's been shuffled around quite a bit and has had some rough spots in his young life. He came from Ohio. He's a sweetie and so friendly. If one word would describe him it would be--inquisitive. He's always checking things out, flipping in the air to play, running in his own way and wants all the toys! He's been using the litterbox 100%! He is a mild/moderate Ch boy. Chester is already on the floor in the back Thumper's Room.

Gavin arrived 12/1.  He's also a brown tiger and about 6 months old. His birthday is 5/30/16. Gavin came from the Humane Society of Greater Dayton area.  He is also a sweetie but is rather shy.  He is in the double condo lower pen in the back Thumper's Room while he gains his confidence. He can see what's going on. Hoping he will want to join in the fun soon.  He is a mild/moderate CH and is also using the litterbox.

Spiker arrived 12/1. He's an orange tiger and is about 4 months old. His birthday is 7/28/16. He came from Fat Cat Rescue in N. Chicago. Spider is a mod/severe CH boy. He loves all the action and is trying his best to keep up! What a sweetheart he is. We've been placing him in the litterbox and he's been using it! He gets around by doing some of the flip/flops and he does put a bit of weight on his rear legs. He gets all excited with the toys!

It'll be a little while till these 3 cats come up to the Main Area---we want them to bond and feel at ease which appears to be happening fast.  Then we'll have a quiz on all these names!  lol  

I understand we have a super wonderful day tomorrow---Kitty Christmas! We are soooo excited. The cats know something is up---it's all about the cats and they are excited as well. During this event---don't worry! We will have all kitties and most of the cats tucked away for safety.  We'll use Kitty Kabana, Kitty Campus, back Thumper's Room, front Thumper's Room and the Cat's Corner Room for safety. I've already been dreaming of Santa's jingle bells coming down Power Dam Road!!
