Weds., March 1st

If the saying is true, In like a Lion, Out like a Lamb, then the end of March will be warm and pleasant. Last night we had some terrific thunderstorms--lots of lightning, thunder and pouring of rain. All is well though and the farm animals and cats are all safe and dry.  Even Kiara was settled down this morning.

I'd like to thank each and everyone of you for celebrating my mom's birthday with her.  She received some brownies, lemon bars, a beautiful bouquet of flowers, box candy, cookies and chocolate covered strawberries. Yes, she has a major sweet tooth---that's where I get it from!  She also so enjoyed opening all of her birthday cards. And then I got to explain the Birthday Chicken donations to her---she just grinned. She is so in awe of what you folks all do.  The total came to $875--wow!!  I asked her what she would like to do with it---first, get lots of chicken for the cats.  Then she said put some on a bill. And lastly, she wants a KFC chicken dinner!  I had to laugh. So, today we will get that chicken dinner for her!  Thanks to you all for making her smile! 

Happy Birthday to Asha---she is now 7 years old, born 3/1/10.  Asha arrived here 3/7/11, a very sweet girl with a very crooked leg. Not any more---she can get around on her 3 legs just fine and dandy!

We had 2 adoptions yesterday.  Phoebe finally was able to go to her long-awaited home. Her new mama was so very excited. We have went over her medical things a couple times and she will continue to see Dr. Darcy. But, Phoebe was ready. She is so full of energy, playfulness and sweetness--it was time to be adopted! 

As many of you already know, my granddaughter's cat Doce has passed away. He ran into some medical problems and went on to kitty heaven. This was very hard for Kellen as he was her comforter cat--always there every night with her and with her treatments. He gave her much love and a sense of peace.  She called me yesterday and asked if she could foster another cat (that's how Doce started out).  She and her family came last night.  Kellen and I went and talked a bit though and she told me that a new kitten would not replace Doce. He was one of a kind. But that Doce would want her to love another cat. Kellen was ready to do that and she picked Lamula, now named LaLa.  

Today is the surgery dental day for LaRue and Anayaa. They will come back with pearly white teeth and a few less teeth. They will leave about 8:10 today and be back this afternoon. Friday is Olivia's day for her nasal surgery. 

Have you noticed Katharine? She's decided she likes running and playing, especially with those Yeoooowww catnip bananas. Every day shows her relaxing and enjoying this very different way of living. She is also eating very good!

Take care and stay safe from any storms that might come your way today.
