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!

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 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!
