Weds., May 16, 2018

Oh boy---this is going to be fun!  Today all the kittens that are on the floor of the back Thumper's Room will be going into the Kitty Kabana Room for a short time and then they will have the freedom of the main area. Watch the walking---this is when we have to do the kitty shuffle!

I'm sad to have to pass on that we lost one of the black kittens in the back Thumper's Room. Swizzle has gone on to The Rainbow Bridge.  When he came in, he weighed significantly less than his two sisters and just never caught up.  He then caught a kitty-cold and never required, despite treatment.  Never underestimate the force of those kitty-colds. 

We've heard from the mama that adopted Erica, Eula and Emma Jane.  All are doing well.  Emma Jane continues to take wonderful care of her kitties. Eula and Erica (now known as Lark and Lilly) are growing and love to play!

We've also heard from Congo's family. They absolutely love him. He's grown so much already and so loves his family. He's thoroughly enjoyed by his family.

Today is Derecho's and Farrah's birthday.  Chicken was dispersed this morning, even before breakfast, for everyone to share, in honor of these birthdays!

For those that keep track of names, we have a name-change.  Callisynne's Kubu is now Kadu.  Sorry for that error.  Also we've had an update--the 2 fire kittens Wonder and Brinn are totally FFRC kittens now and will not be going back to the original family. 

Update on Nyota. She is healing everyday. We have started to fill the big tub with warm water and have her stand in that. Yesterday we did that 3 times--it helps to keep her feet clean and it's also soothing to her. She, of course, is still on pain meds and antibiotics.  Her appetite is good. After her bath, she likes to be held for a bit. 

Be ready!  2:26 pm today (FFRC time!) is our super wonderful Warped Flash Sale.  This is a Flash Sale made up entirely of those wonderful items that Warp makes!  We don't know what's in the boxes--they will be open right there on cam during the Sale! But.......we guarantee, you'll love all the items!
