Nyota is the burned cat. Nyota means star. Her name is pronounced nye-oh-ta. She is doing better and is now eating on her own. She's very thin but no longer dehydrated. Her burns are being treated twice daily--they are washed and burn ointment applied. She is being given antibiotics and also twice a day she receives pain meds. Today she seemed a bit depressed and it was realized that she might be missing her babies. We know nothing of their whereabouts. Tina, the brown tiger mama, is sharing one baby part time during the day. (Kitten still needs to nurse from Tina.) This seems to bring much joy to Nyota and a bit of joy seems to be in her eyes.
I've heard from the family that adopted Jeff Bob and JB--both are doing super. They are very happy they kept the brothers together. Their pictures look wonderful--two happy kittens!

Bits of Info--Dollop is doing great as a Covie cat. No more tearing out neighbor's window screens! He seems to be contented there. We saw Mally/Marshmellow, the persian kitten born here. We trimmed her nails & trimmed up her fur. She looks wonderful and is so loved. You will see Callisynne in the Main Area sometimes--she comes out of the "baby ward" for walkabouts.
Catathon is now 44 days away. It's coming up fast! I am so very pleased and happy to say that each and every basket is awesome for Catathon and all slots of Big Big Ticket Items, Big Ticket Items, Small Big Items and the Catathon's Fun-Raiser are now wonderful!! But.....we still have another week before the end of item's arrivals. As the possibility of more boxes arrive, we will happily receive them and continue to place in the Catathon! Catathon.....here we come!
We had BOXES this afternoon. Because we were unable to open BOXES for a few days, we got piled up! What a wonderful thing to have happen! We started opening at 2:00 today instead of 4:00! I am deeply grateful for your support. The list is long but our gratitude is even longer and bigger!
I am completely in awe of all the folks who are helping us with Catathon and that help us with our every day needs. I look at the Baskets and all the Items--it fills me with jy and gratitude. And it makes me want to be the best that I can for this Rescue Center. Isn't it something what this FFRCNaion has done---made us friends, gave us people to share cat-love with and get support in our own personal lives from our FFRC friends. I heard one of my favorite songs the other day--Lean on Me. Always means so much to me. Thank you, friends.
