Happy Birthday to our Joline! She is now 13 years old. This sweetie girl arrived here Ma;y 2013. I remember when she arrived--she was a mass of knots and mats and severe teeth problems. Joline ended up having to have full mouth extractions. She felt so much better after that. She's our beautiful calico Persian who loves to stare at you for her snackers!

The Sudsy/Bubbles kittens are sharing their room with the white/black mama and 5 kitties! The 5 kittens are a bit scared yet of us humans but we're working on them everyday. They just need some reassurance that life is fine with us 2 legged folks. Mama can go in and out of the room at her will, during the day (thru the open door window0  At night we shut it so the Sudsy/Bubbles kittens stay inside room.

Monda;y is our next Spay/Neuter date with HumaneOhio. Hoping to have another full schedule. Want to get as many spays/neuters done as we can do! The following date will be May 20th, here at FFRC. This time we will have to keep this just for FFRC cats/kittens since we need to get our own done. The kitties here should give us a good size surgery list! 

I know many of you have been wondering about the 2 new horses. This week we've had the ferrier and the farm vet here. Benny, the gelding is doing very well. He's putting on weight, had his feet and his vaccines done. He also needed his teeth floated which was done. Won't be long until we can let him be with the other horses.  Anna Mae though is having some trouble. We have gotten confirmation that she is probably close to 20. She's a "work in progress" yet. 

This rain that we've had this week sure has caused the farmyard to be completely saturated with water and many "lakes' of water. The "lakes' are so big even the big geese are swimming. They think it's wonderful along with the ducks!  We're hoping for a dry spell and some sunshine to help dry things out. The rivers are flooding but remember, FFC is safe. We sit high enough that the water is not a worry, even though we have the river right across the road.  

Mama Nyla and the Niners continue to do well. It won't be long until we start bringing up the babies to be in the rescue center for some playtime. Unfortunately, we will need to keep Nyla seperated---she is awesome with people but not caring for the other cats. Will get her spayed soon and maybe that will help.  

Many of you know that Pania wasn't feeling well lately. I believe she had her 1 bulgy eye scratched. This caused the eye to drain. Eye injuries can be very painful. We put her on antibiotics and soreness meds. She is now feeliing much better and is eating her "Pania flakes' once again and her meals. Her eye is healing and refilling already. Remember---this is an unseeing eye. Dr. Darcy is aware of what has happened. We'll keep a sharp watch on this.

We had an adoption--Vutomie went to her new home. She will become best friends with a 7 year old boy that dearly loves her and all the cats. He can even pronounce her name correctly! What a super nice family! I'm sure Vutomie is going to be very happy.

Please remember to vote so we have a chance at that big food delivery! The site is:

Take care and have a wonderful (hopefully sunny!) weekend!
