271--that's how many spays and neuters to date we have done in 2017!  Last year this time we were at 172.  We would like to continue organizing more spays/neuters. THIS is truly the answer to the overpopulation problem and the neglect and abuse that happens when overpopulation exists.

Today is another HumaneOhio day! We sent up 29 cats--this comes to 27 females and 2 males. Check ins went smoothly. Approximately 5:30 pm the truck will return to send back to the public's owners. FFRC sent 2 females to be spayed--Vutomie and Harriet. So we will be waiting for their return also. 

Here's our total now: 271 cats have now been done--156 spays and 115 neuters.

We had BOXES last night! We are so grateful

Brent and Jenny from Canada--they sent a boatload of things inside the vehicle that SonJa drove in, last week!  Many different items!  Brooms, mats/rugs, Lysol wipes, big and little plates, Easter candy, volunteer goodies, bug spray and just LOTS of stuff!  I am deeply grateful for this help. A big Hi to Montana and the crew!

Wow---many thanks for all the items for FFRC and for Catathon. There will be a new update soon! 

The Niners are officially toddling about! They are also eating from the plates a bit too! The only kitten we have had to supplement is Breezy. She just gets a boost twice a day. Don't mistake her small size though---that Breezy is a fiesty playful baby!  It's so sweet to go into their room and the kittens respond so quickly to humans. They are going to be super sweet cats!

The Fun-Raiser is still going on but ends tomorrow morning at 9:00 am.  Boxes will be at 5:30 pm and the Drawing will be at 6:00 pm. 

Coralie is doing wonderful. She's here beside me and enjoying many ear scratches! Joyful also is here in the office, a bit sleepy but looking over the catwalk at me. Our FireHouse cat, Mama the Calico, is doing wonderful. She appears to be fully healed and is eating good. 

Big thanks to Mary Braid and Edna Gem for doing such a great job at trapping the Mound Cats at the Mall. It's believed that all are now caught. They could not be re-released back on the Mall property so most are here on the Moss farmyard. They were released in the grey barn. The last one (orange/white) joined them this morning. 

If you ordered an FFRC shirt, you should be getting them this week! All have now been sent out! 

Hensley has gained a couple ounces! That's always a good thing. Polly is such a sweet girl. She has a certain tier that she lays on, on a Kuranda Tower. It's the prime spot as many people walk by. She knows one little "meow' gets her another headrub! Pippi so loves the window benches in the Kabana. She thinks she's a great bird stalker! 

All is good in FFRC land. Hope so in your home too!
