Thursday, March 9

Our new girl, Nyla is still "with kittens".  She's decided to keep them tucked inside for a while!  Nyla is enjoying all the good food and loving that she is getting!  I'd love it if she was fully adjusted before babies arrive. She is rather wide though!  She's a grey/white short hair, probably 14 months old. For now she is in the back Thumper's Room.  Her name is a Name a Cat name. 

Phineas went to his new home yesterday. The lady that adopted him sure thought he was nice! And her husband said what a nice looking cat he was! 

Gia is now up in the Main Area. She was brought up to the Cat's Corner Room two days ago. Yesterday her room door was opened. It didn't take her long to come out. So far she has picked the purple office to hang out in. She seems to enjoy watching all the activity. Gia is a sweetie---so enjoys being petted and having her head rubbed.

Thinking wonderful memories of our Magenta who would've been 20 years old yesterday. What a really sweet, special cat she was to all of us. 

We have received word that our Breakfast Clubber on our kitty cam, DJ (Dick Johnson) has passed away. Very sad to hear this---DJ was such a nice person who loved the cats. Peace to his family. 

Last night at BOXES, we had a special visit from the LaChat family. It was important to also get a picture of them---afterall, we feel they are volunteers now of FFRC.  So, a picture was taken and will soon be on our Volunteer Picture page!  They also wanted to let everyone know if there's a special cat that you would like a portrait of their drawings, that we can now do that! The portrait would be painted by that special cat, along with a picture of the cat in action during the creation of the portrait! We are asking a Free Will donation for this to be done. You can send a check or send a PayPal---be sure to let me know what special cat is being requested.  We will let the LaChat family know then! 

We did weights on many of the cats yesterday.  Most maintained their weights. The one I didn't like was with Alice Mary.  She is once again way too low of weight. I've spent more time with Dr. Darcy, talking about her. Not sure really what else we can do for her.  She's nibbling at her food and so loves to be loved on. So......we carry on and keep helping her as much as we can.

On Friday, Olivia gets her nasal sutures removed. That is IF I can convince her to sit still for one minute! That girl has speedy wheels and is in constant motion! She just absolutely loves to play.  So fun to watch her! Right now she is inside one of the clear toy containers, batting at all the toys inside it. 

Remember, starting tomorrow (and Saturday) is our LuLaRoe fundraiser!  Here is the link for this: 

We also have our neat FFRC shirt fundraiser going on until April 1.  

Can send a check to FFRC or go thru PayPal!

You all take care and have a great Thursday!  I know much of our states went thru some really rough winds yesterday. Stay safe.  It's only 11 days until Spring!
