Saturday, January 13, 2018

Back to cold temps.  We had plummeting temps yesterday. First rain, then sleet followed by snow. We only have a couple inches of snow though.  The Porchies, Firecats, Barnies and Covies are all doing great.  Most of the snow in the playground for the Covies is untouched. They are basically staying in their The House that Jonah Built and the Covie Haven.  The furnace is set at 55 degrees.  Every cat outside knows where every heat lamp is! 

We had BOXES last night--love those boxes! Many thanks to you all.

It's happened.  Two of my favorite kittens have been adopted (ok, ok, so I tell ALL that cats and kittens that, but these two really had my heart). Clay and Brenna were adopted together--that's the only way they could go, together, as they are certainly a bonded sister/brother twosome. The family that adopted them fell in love and took them home! I'm quite sure all involved in this home will be happy. 

And we had two other adoptions too.  Another sister/sister twosome.  KaeKae and Kota.  The family that adopted them was very excited about having them in their home. Two great cats.

And we have more thanks!

We've had two public events that have been fun.  The first one was having our kitties and cats streamed on KSDK NewsChannel 5 in St. Louis Missiouri.  They came in this past week and streamed the morning time on their facebook page!  Welcome to those folks!

Yes, Coralie did a bit of vomiting last night.  She had finally stopped doing this but has now stated again.  I've been in contact with Dr. Darcy about this a couple weeks ago.  It's time to see what is going on.  She will go to the vet this coming week for lab work.  She is trying to tell me--no pokies, no pokies.  But I told her she will be just fine--maybe just one pokie from Dr. Darcy. 

The second event was a UK Radio station found our cam.  They did a talk show and they sure did their homework by reading up on our website! It was wonderful.  You can check it out at:

Marcus continues to improve.  While he still has severe heart disease, his condition is being monitored nicely with his 3 medications.  He's feeling better and is starting to be back to Marcus.  We will see if he feels comfortable enough to come up in the Main Area.

Our first 2018 Fun-Raiser is coming up and we are excited!  It starts this Monday and ends on the 18th, Thursday at 9:00 am.  BOXES will be Thursday at 4:00 and the FunRaiser will be at 4:30 (FFRC time).  Check out the fb pages to see the items and also there will be a video in the corner soon, of the kitty cam.
