Thursday, January 17, 2018

Sounds like snow is a-coming! We've had a very easy winter so far.  Snow is predicted for Saturday and again Tuesday.  Our supplies are checked and we're ok.  The heat lamps are all working outside. Horses always have clean stalls everyday. Peacocks have gobbled up extra mealworms. Ducks, geese, guineas, chickens had some of their treat bread. All shelters/sheds and porches are clean and ready for all outside cats, snow shovels are by the door. And if we get alot of snow, our snow plow friend is ready. Bring it on.......but hopefully will melt fast! 

We had quite a few adoptions! Those that left on 1/13 were: Pendy and Pickles together, Ponce De Leon, Charlie, Linzee, Azzilee and Tyler.  Those that left on 1/14 were Purrfloof and Tang.  I've heard from some of the families already and all sounds like the kittens went right in and made themselves at home! That is why I like free-ranging cats and kittens here at FFRC.  They get so use to shop vacs, people, commotion, noises, dogs, kids.  Makes for easier transitions into their homes.

We have one adoption today.  Milton will leave about 1:00. And Glory Joy will now leave on Friday. We're still working on Jabberwocky.

We had a wonderful Flash Sale yesterday, by Mich and Vern.  Many thanks to them, our Flash Mods, all mods that helped let everyone know about it, to all those that provided the items for the sale and to all those that purchased the items. These Flash Sales make a big difference to FFRC.  This sale made a bit over $1,800-------wow, wow, wow!!  I just checked with Steve and this is enough to get our latest propane and electric bill paid.  Isn't that just wonderful?!  I am very grateful.

And......more good news.  A thousand giant thanks to all those that contributed to our WiFi fund!  We made it and with some to spare.  We will also be purchasing with this money the warranty.  In the past, this warranty has saved us alot of money when things aren't working right.  The new equipment is now in and it's amazing the difference in our WiFi.  Now, when you come and visit, you won't have trouble getting onto the WiFi!  Any extra monies on top of this will be set aside for a possible smaller project.  Again, I am grateful! 

I've gotten behind on our thank yous, so we need to catch up! Many thanks to:
Lana H--donation to FFRC
Rob & MIchelle (adopted Pendy & PIckles)--PT's, baby wipes, lysol wipes, dry & can food, toys and bedding. And homemade cookies for all of us!

Monday is our next HumaneOhio surgery date. We have a very packed schedule.
Sunday-Weds, Jan. 27 to 30th is our first 2019 Fun-Raiser. Wait'll you see the items!  
Plus, we want to have another Quickie Flash Sale soon for the next group of Joni's Tiles. 

These kittens here have such great adult cats to help them with growing up.  Not only Monique, Singita and Paw Paw, they also have the teenager Mr. Anderson.  He is enjoying snuggle time with them.

As of today, the back Thumper's Room is shut down. That hasn't happened for several months. All kittens are now in the Main Area.  We have rearranged June's Room to make a really nice night time room for Hatima and Ramsay. They spent their first night there last night and all went well.  That leaves Cat's Corner Room now open so we can feed and gather the smaller kittens for checking on them and their extra meals. 

Muppi is doing great.  Her ears are healing and she has good balance.  Next week we will remove her sutures.  The newer 6 pack of Abel black kittens are super. They really are all very sweet. As little as they are they sure do zoom all over the place! We are slowly learning their names!  

We also have a coming up date too. You all know that we love to attend the OVMA (Ohio Veterinary Medical Association's big conference called the Midwest Veterinary Conference.  It's jam packed full of educational classes. Those attending can pick and choose which classes are of interest individually. I was able to reserve 2 hotel rooms--this hotel is connected to the conference hall.  We would like to go on Thursday and come back on Saturday (Feb. 21-23). We can attend 3 classes on Thursday, 6 on Friday and 3 on Saturday. There also is a wonderful Exhibit Hall with many medical/pet related booths to visit.

Sunday, January 13, 2019

What a day yesterday was.  I am truly and deeply grateful that we have such a compassionate and awesome vet to help this Rescue Center.  Dr. Darcy's mom is quite ill, yet she was still able to come on surgery day and help us accomplish most of our surgery needs.  We didn't start until 3:00 and ended last night somewhere around 8:00.

Big thanks to our post-op care done by 6 of our volunteers--Becky M, Dawn E, Donnajb, Eaglewatcher, Mary Braid and Gem. They not only keep an extra eye on every cat during the post-op phase but they help with clean up too. 

Thanks too for Amber our vet tech and for Sue and Lynnette.  We have an awesome team in our surgery room--just amazing, giving people.

We had 3 others that helped us by providing food and drinks---Joyce D, Gusti and Jody J.

Even though we weren't able to get everyone done because of limited time, we sure made a huge dent in our surgery list.  The 4 we did not get done were: Maya, PiperJo, Edwina and Monique.  We'll get them on the next FFRC surgery date.

Here's our spays:
Azzilee, Pickle, Linzee, Glory Joy.

Here's our neuters:
Pendy, Ponce, Tang, Charlie, Jabberwocky, Atis, Purrfloof, Milton and MacNeil

We also sedated Sinbad and tried to remove his leg pin. Because of the thickened callus, it was not possible to safely remove it. He will have to have an x-ray to pinpoint the exact place where the pin head is.

We also worked on Muppi.  Got 3 of the 4 needed things done. We still have to spay her but didn't want to overburden her and did the priority which was her leg. Her rear leg and tail were amputated. She still has a few inches of her tail left. We were also able to clamp the ears and get rid of the frostbite. Her ears are shorter a bit but done nicely.  This morning she came out of her pen and is right now taking a healing nap.

We were also able to get in a few physicals.
Lancelot--remember he had that awful middle ear infection.  It's now so much better--almost gone. He will probably always have a bit of a head tilt, but that is ok.

Janie--she now sports a couple small shaved areas on her back.  She has cysts and by shaving, it helps to keep those areas cleaner.

PawPaw/Bruno--his heart murmur is still very pronounced  5/6.  (by the way, he's been playing like a kitten lately!)

Barin--his heart murmur is the same 4-5/6  He too shows no effects of it

Tyler--physical good

Unfortunately, this morning we lost our Mystic, the beautiful gold/white Persian kitten.  You may remember, she was given to us to try and "fix her up".  She arrived with her nostrils very very small and some lung congestion.  She's been on antibiotics in anticipation of this surgery to help her.  Her lungs appeared to be able to handle this. Nostrils......what a small small part of our anatomy but so important. Each inspiration brought her nostrils to a close and made breathing difficult.  And this condition continued to get worse. We made the decision to go ahead with her nasal repair and all went well--her nostrils were enlarged nicely.  But......this long term nasal problem took a toll on her lungs. Such a shame.  General life was not always easy for her--it's hard to enjoy something as simple as playing when you have to concentrate on breathing. I've talked to Dr Darcy this morning about this.  Mystic actually recovered from surgery but collapsed this morning early. She and I both felt the need to do this nasal surgery was necessary--it wouldn't get better with time. She spent much of her time in the typical posture--nose/face lifted up in the air to help facilitate better breathing.  My heart is broken for this loss as is her future family that she was going to go to.  We here at FFRC strive so hard to make each life healthy.  It hurts terribly when we fail. The one thing that helps is knowing they were always given love.

We are reminded way too often.....treasure each life.  Never miss that opportunity to give care and love. 

We have a busy adoption day today.  These are the kittens scheduled to be adopted: Pendy & Pickles together, Ponce DeLeon, Charlie, Linzee, Azzilee and Tyler.  These start approximately 8:30 and are staggered about every 45 minutes or so.  On Monday we have 2 adoptions in the morning--Tang and Purrfloof.  Tuesday, Jabber will be adopted (possible that may change to Weds.).  Busy adoption times.

An added note:  Paddy Boys are still helping FFRC!!! We need to update some of our Wifi components in the Center and your help is needed.  In memory of our beloved Paddys we would like to ask you help us raise some money to help strengthen our wifi signal.  A donation of $5 would go a long way toward making this happen.  Please enjoy this video in their memory.  The Paddy's -- Furever Ours. A letter of love from their Momma Rosabella.  Please click the like/thumbs up button on youtube as it helps generate more $$ for FFRC

I would like to say a special thanks to JustMe and Cantoncat for the beautiful work they did on this Paddy video.

Friday, January 11, 2019

Busy, busy week.  All these kittens are keeping us hoping busy.  Some are receiving meds twice a day, some are still in quarantine, some need ears cleaned, all are being fed every 3 hours (not sleeping hours!), many need twice daily grooming. And then when we open the doors to let them come up to the Main Area, they have to be gathered up a couple times a day to be returned to the Thumper's Rooms.  These babes are busy!  

And we took on 3 new kittens.  These are known as the M litter.  They arrived 1/8.  Even though they were all nursing on the same mama cat (mama will be spayed!) they are obviously 2 different groups. Names are from Name a Cat list. They were dumped, in a cardboard box at the home of a TNR rescue friend. And so we took in the kittens. 
MacNeil--birthday is 9/11/18, orange tiger, male
Milton--birthday is 11/6/18, orange tiger, male
Maya--birthday is 11/6/18, gray torti, female
They are still in quarantine in the back Thumper's Room, top 2 condos.

The little 6 black kittens are doing super and they are ever so sweet!  They zip, zag, fly and zoom!  They are just blurs of black at times. And yes, it's true, Mr. Anderson has become their Uncle A and is most definitely teaching them his wonderful, fun ways of enjoying life!  I love it. We'll have more of Mr. Anderson's antics here at FFRC! Paw Paw is their grandpa--they snuggle on him at times for a nap.

We have thanks to give!
Helen C--donation to FFRC
Charlotte T--donation to FFRC

Ju-in-ji--donation for Pendy, to help with his neuter and blankie for adoption
Kelly I--donation for FFRC
James R--donation for FFRC

Becky G--donation to FFRC
Yvonne VDK--donation to FFRC

A special thanks to Megan (our volunteer) for the donation she made to FFRC, from a collection at Goin' Postal.  We sure do appreciate you and your business! 

We've heard from the family that adopted Sloopy. "He is doing great! I think he enjoys his new home. He snuggles every night. Sleeps right on my pillow".  Sounds like a great home for Sloopy! 

Glory Joy is in the Main Area all the time now. She's doing great. So very pretty and such a sweet personality.  

Muppi is also doing good although I'm anxious to get some of her surgeries done.  Her ear tips have fallen off by themselves due to the frostbite. We'll see if Dr. Darcy thinks the ears still need some surgical help. We still need to do her leg and tail amputation and her spay. 

Monique's mastitis is much much better--to the point, she has started nursing her 2 babies again.  And both Cornelio and Rocky are doing so much better too from their little cold. They are rocking and rolling in their pen! 

We had BOXES on Weds.  I'm very grateful for all of your help you give to FFRC>

We had our Joni's Tile Flash Sale on Tuesday. It was awesome and we sold 100% of the tiles that were shown! The tiles brought in $345. And the good news--this sale covered the bill we received for one of the medications we are using heavily.  Almost to the penny it was covered! Many thanks!

We have another Flash Sale coming up soon--one that Mich and Vern will be doing!  It's on Weds., Jan. 16 at 2:30ish  pm. Come join the fun. 

Tomorrow is our super big surgery day. Many of the families that are adopting are waiting for this day, so their new pets will be neutered/spayed! We are looking at many adoptions Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  

Edwina is back!  She's still hanging out in the back Thumper's Room and getting use to the other kittens. Such a pretty girl. 

Take care and enjoy this wonderful upcoming weekend!

Monday, Jan. 7, 2019

Wonderful day already because it's a spay/neuter day!  We sent 35 cats to HumaneOhio.  There were 10 males and 25 females. This makes our total now..........36!  We had a Voucher neuter so grand total to get us started is 11 males and 25 females.  Our next HumaneOhio is 2 weeks from today.

Many thanks to Becky M, Mary Braid and Donnajb for helping with the check-ins. 

This is probably really pushing it, but wouldn't it be wonderful is we could hit 1,200 for 2019?!  We are really at our max of how many events we can do.  Compared to 2018, we are doing 24 spay/neuter events with HumaneOhio this year.  Last year it was 22. Plus we have our FFRC surgeries here. We'll keep pushing those numbers!

This Saturday is our FFRC spay/neuter date and we're going to be hopping busy.  Here's a tentative schedule----
Spays: Azzilee, Edwina (plus an eye enucleation), Mystic (plus a nasal repair), Monique, Piper Jo, Pickles, Lynzee, Glory Joy and a public spay.

Neuters: Pendy, Ponce DeLeon, Tang, Charlie, Jabberwalky, Atis, Purrfloof

Others: for past persian adoptions--2 nasal repairs plus Sinbad needs his pin removed

In addition, Lancelot will have his middle ear infection checked
PawPaw--recheck heart murmur
Barin--recheck heart murmur
Smoochie--recheck left eye
Tyler--recheck several things
Janie Dog/Cat--has a growth on back

A very busy day.  But productive.  Many of these kittens will be able to get to their adoptive homes once they've had their spays/neuters!

We have thanks to give!
Donavon S--donation to FFRC for Jackson II and Victor and friends
Tracy L--donation to FFRC
William K--donation for FFRC
David D--donation to FFRC
Hallie G--donation to FFRC
Kris M--donation to FFRC in honor of Eddie White's birthday

Tomorrow is a special day--11:00.  It's a Flash Sale for part of Joni's awesome FFRC cat tiles! Sorry, no pre-sales for this one.  Have fun and join us!

Did you know that viewers can make a donation to FFRC thru YouTube?  It's true!  If a person makes a donation to FFRC thru YouTube, a banner with the amount and name is displayed for a short time. We thank you!  Just a thought though---if you have a choice of YouTube or PayPal, we suggest PayPal.  The reason is that YouTube takes out a hefty 30% fee.  PayPal is much lower. We are always appreciative of all donations!

Right now we have a possible 12 adoptions coming up soon.  They are: Azzilee, Tyler, Charlie, Purrfloof, Linzee, Tang, Jabberwocky, Atis, Ponce De Leon, Mystic, Pendy and Piper Jo!

You might've noticed that Monique, Cornelio and Rocky have not been on the floor since early Friday, in the back Thumper's Room. Monique developed a rather nasty case of mastitis. She's doing much better now. We kept all 3 in the top 2 condo pens. They probably will be down again today or tomorrow.

We took in 6 new little kittens on 1/4. They are called the Abel Litter.  And one after another, as we pulled them from the crate, we ended up seeing 6 black kittens! And they are ever so sweet. Mama had arrived at a person's property. He took her in and let her have the kittens inside. They've never been outside.  Mama will be spayed thru FFRC/HumaneOhio on 1/21.  We have 5 girls and 1 boy. Their birthday is 11/23 and they are 6 weeks old. they are:
Sabel, girl, black/little white tummy
Kabel, girl, black/little white tummy
Fabel, girl, black/bigger white tip tail, with little white tummy
Gabel, girl, black/smaller white tip tail, big white tummy & chest
Mabel, girl, black/white tummy & armpits
Abel, boy, black with white tummy and little white armpits
Okay......will you be ready for a test?!  These will be doozies to tell apart!

We also took in another kitten this morning. A real sweetheart.  A friend of FFRC's was following a car and she saw them toss a kitten out of the window while the vehicle was moving. Fortunately this kitten took a big roll without breaking any legs and injuring it's face, which is usually the case.  Her name is Glory Joy.  Her birthday is 10/15/18. She is 12 weeks old. Glory Joy is a gray and white long hair kitten--so beautiful. And has a purr that sounds like a lion! She's very happy to be here and so are we.

We also had 2 more adoptions!
March--our sweet boy was adopted by a young man who really was so ready to have March be his special pet!  He called yesterday and said March is doing good. He likes to have lap time!

Aladdin--our little gold/white boy went to a home that has been so patient with him. We knew that Aladdin was a tad shy but with lots of TLC here, it sounds like he's adjusted very well.  The family has already contacted us and is so very happy with Aladdin. Sounds like Aladdin has slipped right into their home and hearts!

Enjoy the kitties and cats......they love to share their lives with you all out there in camland! Won't be long until there will be 7 more kittens on the floor. Definitely will be doing the kitty-shuffle!

Friday, Jan. 4, 2019

Muppi is doing wonderful! This white calico girl is tough. Even with all her problems, she is a beautiful purr-er and loves to be petted.  She's had her first 2 vaccines and so was out of her pen yesterday. She got along great with the other cats and kittens in the back/front Thumper's Room.  She will now stay on the floor. She is still getting 2 antibiotics a day. I've talked to Dr. Darcy about her and she will examine her on the 12th.  For right now, we continue to work on getting her healthier. She's already gained 3/4 of a pound! All in all, she will be spayed, leg amputation, tail amputation and both ears will have the frostbite removed so her ears will be shorter. This will all probably be 2 different surgery times. Muppi is enjoying good food and lots of TLC.

We weighed the Persian babies this morning--they are ALL between 2.01 to 2.05! -all made their 2 lb. goal! They have been eating tremendously good this week--devouring their meals which are every 3 hours. They all get time in the Main Area at least once a day. They sure do love that. Even the "P" litter kittens come up! Ponce is the biggest of these 4 and Piper Jo is the smallest.  Right now, 3 of them have made weight for the Jan. 12th surgery date. 

Here's some upcoming dates:
Jan. 7, Monday--HumaneOhio surgery day
Jan. 8, Tuesday--Flash Sale--Joni has made beautiful cat tiles! This flash sale will only be part of them. Another Flash Sale later for the others. This one is basically for some of the Main Area cats.  Time: 11:00 am
Jan. 12, Saturday--FFRC surgery day
Jan. 16, Weds.--Mich and Vern Flash Sale  2:30 ish
Jan. 21, Monday--HumaneOhio surgery day and board meeting

We had 21 adoptions for December! And January should see quite a few adoptions as well.  Once we get these kittens spayed/neutered, many will be on their way to their new homes.

Here's a message from the family that adopted Cherokee---"He quickly became on of the family. He is such a little cuddler."    So nice to hear!

Sinbad has discovered he has kangaroo legs. He can easily jump in a giant leap up to the countertops. And when he's running room to room, he does huge leaps over the cats that are in his path! 

 If you see a streak of black dragging a washcloth, that would be Mr. Anderson! He snags any small pieces of material and loves to run around dragging them between his legs!

Some of you may have noticed that Paw Paw/Bruno has a significant limp.  We're not sure what he's done but we are treating him.  He continues to be wonderful with the kittens and will even bathe them. Hoping he will continue to be a significant part of our kittens lives as he brings a sense of calmness to the other cats.  

Lucie is doing wonderful. Such a sweetie. She hangs out alot in the purple office--she has a couple special beds there and is close to the food, water and litterbox.  Janie frequently naps in her bed with her. 

Take care and enjoy this first weekend of 2019!
