The 4 kittens--2 beige twins (males), 1 gold tiger (male) and 1 tiger/torti with a gold crown on her forehead (female). We'll know soon enough if any will be long hair like Feather. Right now, she is very content and happy in the rat house and so we will let her be there for now. She ate a good breakfast!
Upcoming Flash Sales! We have 2 for February--these are the Quickie Flash Sales--short and sweet! The first one is 2/12 and will be all blankies--different kinds--crocheted, biggeydews, leggydews. The second one is 2/19 and will be the wonderful cat tiles that Joni made.
We had BOXES on Tuesday. So much fun--we so love Boxes! They are a terrific help to FFRC
We had another HumaneOhio surgery day on Monday! It was wonderful as we sent up 41 cats! What was astounding is that most of the females were already in heat. Please........get those cats spayed and neutered. The days are already getting longer in light time and some of our temps reach 40's and 50's--a prime time for the first heat cycles of the spring. The 41 cats were made up of 23 females and 18 males.
We've had 4 more adoptions! I'm so thankful for such awesome homes!
Maya--adopted 2/4. She went to a family that has a little baby--this baby and Maya are just 4 days apart in age and will grow to be good friends!
Atis--adopted 2/4. He is the last of the 6 Persian kittens, babies to Singita. We all miss those fluffy kittens bouncing around here. He is doing good and loves his new mama.
Rocky--adopted 2/5. He went to the home that already has one of our Persian kittens, now called Panda. Rocky is doing great and has adjusted quickly. The two kittens are enjoying playtime together.
Muppi--adopted 2/5. This turned out to be one of the sweetest adoptions for me. Mupp so loved her new mama and dad. It was obvious that there was a spark between the 3 of them. From her mom: "I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to adopt Muppi. We have decided to rename her Pixie! She is absolutely amazing. She has made herself right at home, like she has been with us forever." The pictures they sent shows Mupppi/Pixie already snuggling with the children. Makes my heart happy.
We've also heard from Piper Jo's new family. Her new name is Luna. She is "growing like a weed and is such a cuddler"! Love to hear this!

This Saturday is the cat show that I so enjoy going to. My friend Chris, from Dr. P's office and I have gone for many years. If you are in the area, it's at the Lucas Co. Recreation Center on Saturday and Sunday. IT's the TICA cat show.
We now have 3 of the 6 black kittens on hold. They have a ways to go before they can be spayed. Our next surgery date here at FFRC is on March 9 which is when they will be scheduled.
We also took in a new cat--a long hair black young adult now named Puddy. This is a Name a Cat name. She arrived here for the HumaneOhio surgery date and did not have an owner so FFRC claimed her. She's a bit shy yet and is in the back Thumper's Room, along with Addy. They are both growing in self-confidence. Addy is doing very well and loves to be petted and talked to. I'm hoping she will decide on her own to leave the back Thumper's Room and come into the Main Area. It'll happen!
Update on construction. The only thing left to do is to anchor the counter and countertop to the wall. The guys had to wait for the electrician to move the outlet above the top of the countertop. Buck will probably be here today and tomorrow. He will help us with lots of little things that need done--cabinet door realigned, cat door put in Paddy's Place room, putting up the catwalks, etc. And then we will be done. And the cats can have their Captain D's treat!
