Hi Ho, Hi Ho--off to the vets we go! This morning was wonderful! We sent 27 cats and 1 dog to HumaneOhio for their spays/neuters! We always hope for more but because many of these cats are outside and wildish, we never get 100%. But, we're always happy sending any amount up to HumaneOhio! We had 18 females and 9 male cats and 1 male dog. All outside cats now also receive a complimentary Rabies Vaccine.  They will be returning to FFRC about 5:30 ish to be picked up by their owners.

Our total numbers are now at 374 cats that we've helped with their spays/neuters.  That breaks down to 219 females and 159 males. Plus 2 dogs!  

This Saturday is our FFRC surgery date. Tentatively, the spays we have are: Oh My Goodness, Vesta, Luella, Isabella Bird, Nellie Bly and Dandelion Hope.  The boys are: Adare and Vester. And we have physicals too to do. 

We had ENVELOPES last night! Many thanks to you!

Would you by chance have a ferret or know someone who does? If so, visiting this website will give you lots of great information:  www.friendlyferret.com

As many of you know, we are on extra alert for Joline. Her cancer spot in her mouth is very fast growing. She is on 2 different meds, one of which is a soreness med.  I promised her long ago---no pain and that is what we shall do.  Each day is a treasure and each day we evaluate her. She's getting anything she needs and wants of course.

We seem to have two kittens that have hidden angel wings---they fly like the wind. Little Isabella Bird and Bubble Buddy both are door escapees. This morning, in the dark, I was tracking Isabella Bird out on the driveway. The little stinker escaped and took off like she knew exactly where she was going. Of course, once she heard a big scary noise (made by me), she turned around and hightailed it back to the door!  They both act so innocent then. Sure gives us lots of chuckles.

Mama Dandelion Hope and her 5 kittens are coming along. We ask people to go back to the Thumper's Room and pet, talk, groom, play with these kittens. Cinnamon, Paislie and Helga are there too and so their sweetness is also helping. 

Goldidots, Sloan and Odetta are rolling each other around on the floor. They look like one big ball of fluff! So much fun. Mama Kismit is watching their silliness from above on a Kuranda tower.  Declan, Nona, Vesta and Oh My Guinness are also rocking and rolling--all after one fussy play ball. Looks more like a slobberball right now! 

The Covies received an extra good brushing and combing out by 3 new volunteers yesterday. I believe today they will get another go-around--getting all their wintery fur removed. 

This weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday is also our big concession date with the dance recital. This is a fund-raiser for FFRC and a fun way to see lots of people and to get FFRC's name "out there". 

Take care and have a great day.  Oh my goodness--it's only 19 days to Catathon!
