The Friday night event--Fire, Food, Friends and a Movie is pretty well all set. Anyone that is coming for Catstock, feel free to join us late afternoon and into the evening! Come hungry.
We've been asked....what can we do to help with supplies, etc for Catstock. I appreciate you asking. This is not a fund-raiser for FFRC. We just want to break even. If you'd like to help us cover the cost for the band ($400), feel free to send a Pay-Pal or check, but please, designate it for the band. Strawberry Hill is awesome and the bestest band!
At Catstock, we will do a 50/50 drawing, here at FFRC. This money (the 50%) will help FFRC towards the cost of the tent. So far, we have one tent ordered ($405). This is where some of the fun stuff will be. If it looks like rain in the forecast, we will need to order the special uprise-tent for the band. Gotta keep the music going! That tent, should we need it, is $330.
We will also have a 50-50 drawing for the chatters and lurkers. Anytime from now to 9/6, if you'd like to participate, simply send a check or a paypal. Designate it for the 50/50. We will have this second drawing at the end of Catstock. The lucky winner will receive 50% of the money made! This money (the other 50% for FFRC) will also help with the tent rental.
The cats are super excited about Catstock. Oh my goodness, Derecho came to me and said he was asking on behalf of the girl cats here. They were concerned. Seems that they want beauty appointments for themselves. They want to look their best for all the visitors. I assured Derecho and asked him to let the girls know--all (girls and boys) will be brushed, ears cleaned and nails trimmed before the big event. But that they need to practice their smiles and purrs.....maybe there will be an adoption happening??!!!
Speaking of adoptions......we had FIVE yesterday! Since the blog on Wednesday, we have had SEVEN adoptions!
Noah--was adopted 8/21. Such a handsome boy! Lucky boy--he went into the home that adopted Brenna and Clay!
Belle--was adopted 8/22. She is the mama to 4 black/white kittens. She was ready for her own home. She went into a home with a mom/dad/1 other cat.
Zendaya and Zini--brothers, adopted 8/24. These boys have been loved by Kim, our early morning person, for a long time. Her vacation was done and so was ready to take the boys home!Kim said they are doing great and has already met the family dog. A super great home!
Mr. Mcwiggles--was adopted 8/24. He went into a home with a mom/dad. I've already heard from them and they said he traveled very well. He is already settling into his new home. What a great cat.
Asia and Ginga--was adopted 8/24. They went to Angie and Bill L. I am very positive these two girls are going to have so much fun and love. I can already see them running up and down the stairs and exploring everywhere! Asia is not spayed yet and so will return sometime soon for that. We are waiting too because of her pin in her leg. IF that needs to be removed, will do both surgeries at the same time. But, Dr. Darcy is thinking that the pin will stay.
More adoptions coming up!
We took in two kittens. They are two brothers and found on a volunteers porch, huddled together and very sick. How kittens (or cats) can be so friendly and so sick and left on their own, is something I do not understand. So....we don't dwell on that. It's better to put the thoughts into their healing instead.
Their names are Cardi (DLH, gold/white) and Cas (cream/white with points). Their birthdays are 7/11/19, making them 6 weeks old. They weigh barely a pound. Both have severe URI, severe fleas and very infected/sore eyes. After 3 bubble baths, the fleas and dander are gone. They are on 2 antibiotics. Eye ointment is done 3 times a day. The first two days they were syringe fed but this morning, both started licking at their gruel! They are sleeping alot which is fine---resting and healing is good. Their names are from the Name a Cat list. They are, of course, still in quarantine in the front Thumper's Room.
The ornery D kittens are back, from their fostering at Auntie Peggy's. That would be Dadou, Dixie and Dylan. They are already in the Main Area. If you see a blur running by you, that is one of these kittens! They do not know what slow down means! Dadou has the cutest white/black markings and that white tipped tail. Dylan is short hair black. Dixie is a fuzzy medium hair black.
When Auntie Peggy brought those 3 back, we sent Timax back with her. That way Evans and Timax could have a friend. They are fairly close in age and now can have an eating and sleeping buddy. Both are doing well.
Friday was our Fun-Raiser and Drawing and BOXES! First.......the Boxes--
