Alice Mary has eaten THREE breakfasts today! And, to add to that, her tummy actually feels like it's beginning to be an FFRC tummy! Joy, joy!  She looks a little "funny" right now---her sutures are fraying so it makes her look like she has short fuzzy whiskers! And she's purring up a storm! Now....I'm waiting to see her playing!

We had an adoption on Thursday. Koda was adopted! This boy is an extra special kitten--always wanting to be loved on and he sure can rock and roll! I feel he picked his new mama himself. I've already heard back from her. She said Koda is the most precious boy--he's funny, inquisitive and makes them laugh all the time. Personality plus! They have named him Charlie T (T for trouble!). So happy for Charlie T and his family!

We should have a couple more adoptions coming up real soon. Jasper and Woodrow will be going to their two homes fairly soon. 

The January Fun-Raiser is on! It's over 9 am on Weds. BOXES will be Weds. evening at 5:30 and the Fun-Raiser will be at 6:00! A fun time ahead.  Check out the fb Chatters page, Twitter, & FFRCNation pages for info. Also the video that shows periodically on the cam. Thanks for helping us with this!

Giovana had another bubble bath today. Her fur is so stained. We got it a bit lightened up. She appears to be an older cat. We'll have the vets check again on Weds.  I keep thinking she may already be spayed but do not see any spay line. I'm sure she will feel so much better when those nasty teeth are removed.

Lots of work going on in Paw-Mart. The One Hundred Storybook is coming right along. And we've already practiced using the binder---it works great! These storybooks are $25 and are of 100 cats from FFRC.  Feel free to send in your paypal or a check for these wonderful books! Just add a message that it's for The One Hundred Storybook. We'll be getting those out quickly.   FYI--we also have a few more cookbooks! They are $18.   Thank you!

This month we are working on updating many of the resident's annual distemper vaccines and bordatella vaccines.  We always tell them their distemper vaccine is done with a baby tiny neeble---not sure if they believe us or not.  Each of our resident cats receive at least one physical a year by our vet.  

The Covies wish to thank everyone involved in helping us with the furnace for The House that Jonah Built.  We keep the heat at about 55--warm but not too warm. Stepping inside the building feels wonderful when it's zero degrees outside. At most breakfasts, there are 17 cats in there each day.  They sure love their THTJB! 

Lucy Ann is doing great. She's such a quiet girl but sure loves her pets.  Pippi has come so very far in her friendliness.  The world is at her feet---yep, that's what she thinks! Eddie White too is so much more social. He's been letting us pet his head and give kisses to him now. Such a gentle cat. We added 3 beds to the Front Thumper's Room.  The reason is that Walter's bed was in hot demand. Now, he has his bed back and he's so much happier! 

This is the time of year to catch up on things.  Record keeping, PetFinders is getting an overhaul, updates are being put into the website, adoption information updated and copies made--the list goes on and on.  

More action abounds! The 4 newest kittens are now in the Main Area 24/7.  They absolutely love the climbing tree and palm tree. They seem to have wings! Their energy level is sky high. Still have one shy one--Jules. But, we're working on her!

Take care and have a wonderful week. This Rescue Center certainly appreciates each of you.
