December 7, 2016 Wednesday

Today is Phoebe's big veterinary day. She and I will be going to our vet's office for a morning appointment where she will have (hopefully) some diagnosis made. She is still so very snorty and snores alot with some nasal drainage yet. She will be sedated, x-rays taken, a full sinus flush done, checking her soft palate and maybe a scope too.  We need to know if there's something we can do to help her with her breathing. Until we get this all settled, we cannot adopt her. Also will have her platelet count done again. If it continues to be good, we could possibly do her spay on the 17th.

We have thanks to give!! We are a very grateful bunch!

We are moving along with our Dapper, Dandy, Dazzling Dryer Fund! lol  These numbers are approximate only:  We had $2,000 left from the Kitty Christmas, after the washer was paid! We do not have an estimate for the dryer yet, but we're thinking $5,700 (with the gas line we have to do).  Since then, we've received about $1,800!  We have a "surprise fun thing" that I've been mentioning to the viewers on the cam which is just about ready to launch.  What monies we get from this can help pad this Dapper, Dandy Dazzling Fund! So....we're on our way to the dryer!  I've already told Walter that he will have a much bigger window to look at while he "plays" with the tossing clothes in the dryer. He may need a step stool though!

Yesterday I posted some interesting pictures of the before and after look of the shelves/inventory from Kitty Christmas. They are on the FB Chatters page. Here's some more fun facts:  we took in 18 gallons of bleach, 21 packs Clorox wipes, 9 bottles of Dawn liquid soap, 23 gallons Odoban, 17 cases paper towels, 26 bags of litter, 28 containers of baby wipes, 6 cases toilet paper, 49 packs of plates, 15 packages of people snackers, 14 boxes of various garbage bags, 5 black rugs, 9 jugs of detergent! This is only a partial list but one of interest!

Two adoption updates! Both Rosemary and Endure are doing wonderful in my home. They are fitting in very nicely with my other cats. Rosemary loves her tracker ball.  Endure loves this cave bed that she curls up in for a nap. Love both of these girls.

I understand there have been many speculations about the death of our sweet Delight.  Let's just suffice it to say, that her passing was not cat-created or human-created.  It was in all sense an accident.  I think we can leave it at that and just be grateful that she knew what love was.

This Saturday is a cat show in Maumee that I would like to attend. Hoping to be able to leave in the morning to go!  A nice few hours of fun and maybe for finding some new interesting cat toys!

The cats have been having fun with our Gratitude Christmas Tree from Kitty Christmas. I've brought it out a few times and have read the names on it of the donors.  While out in the Main Area, the cats are enjoying pulling at the tags and the garland.  It's all for the fun of the cats!

We've been spending extra time the last week working on the kitties beauty schedules! Many have been brushed and combed, toenails trimmed, ears cleaned and told that they look beautiful!

Hoping to get the 3 CH cats up here to Main Area very soon.  We'll start them in Cat's Corner Room. And then, we will move the 7 kittens from up here to the back Thumper's Room for a day so they can have bonding friend time! And then they too will be up in the Main Area.  Let the action begin.....soon!
