My Adopted Kitties

Saturday, December 26, 2009

Merry Christmas to the Kitties!

Abby, Shannon (in the box), and Elsie, my own personal kitty. Shannon is finally not quite so completely terrified of other cats. She's still more of a people cat than a cat-cat, but she does love her son, Leto (who she STILL lets nurse at ~5 months), and she's getting more tolerating of Abby, since she's a buddy of Leto's.

Right after we set it up, Abby climbed to the tippy top of the tree. Her new fave spot.

I got all of my cats, both foster and permanent, a 74" cat tree with a zillion surfaces, and it's so pretty. And my kitties love it! At almost any given moment, there's at least one cat on it. They scratch at it, they play on it, they sleep on it.

Update on Jared

Jared was adopted back in November. His owner has been awesome enough to stay in contact with me via email, and send pictures now and then. This shot is from shortly after he joined his new house. Jared is also now called Logan (after Wolverine from X-Men, cause he's quite the claw-sy little bugger).

Here's a recent update (from December) on Jared, a.k.a. Logan:
"Jared's used to the routine of things now, and curls up to sleep with me (I sleep with the window up). Being in the country, he sits in my window and watches the birds and squirrels when he gets done playing with us, lol. Good fun!"

So nice to see my kiddos in good homes.

Molly and Jared Adopted!

Jared and Molly were adopted back in early November, on the same day. Molly had a bit of a rough time settling in, but she's settled in now, and is her owner's (a little girl) shadow these days. She also has a tendency to climb up into the little girl's doll house, making herself comfortable in a room, while the little girl plays. Jared is quite content with his new daddy, snuggling up with him at night.

Jared and Leto

The brothers, Leto (top) and Jared, who are both available for adoption, as is their mama, Shannon. (This was taken right after they'd finished nursing on their mama. She doesn't appear to be nursing them any more, but this was only like 2-3 weeks ago, lol))

Sunday, October 11, 2009


Ducky and Gibbs got adopted to the same home today. Which I'm thrilled about because they're both pretty close to each other. The lady had 2 14 year old cats who died this summer from complications of diabetes, that were brothers, so she was interested in adopting Ducky, because she looked like a baby version of her boys, and a litter mate if she any. I explained that they weren't biologically related but she was a part of a "litter". Ducky and Gibbs are very close, Gibbs is very much a big brother to Ducky, so I was thrilled when she decided to take them both, because her boys had been so close. I think it will make the transition easier on them.

It's hard to let my babies go, though I've been told it gets easier. These two were particularly difficult to let go because back in August we had an outbreak of a viral neurological syndrome in our house that affected Gibbs, Ducky, and Abby all to different extents. Gibbs got it first (we still don't know how), and got very sick. He was badly dehydrated when we realized something was wrong, and he was actually septic when we took him to vet the next day after emergency subcutaneous fluid that night. The neurological part was that his hind legs weren't cooperating enough for him to really walk. All 3 kittens had some version of this, with Abby's being the mildest (low grade fever and the hind legs not quite cooperating), Ducky's being the mid-case (fever, mild dehydration, and uncooperative hind legs), and then Gibbs. By a week later, all were much better and acting normal. And now there is no evidence they ever had a problem. But we were very paranoid there for about a week, and you really bond when there's a medical issue, I find.

So yes, I'm sad they're gone. But I know they're at a good home. I can tell. And soon, I hope to get updated pictures of them. I have with all 3 of my adoptions up to now, I've gotten some kind of pictures or updates. Which makes me VERY happy, and much more content to let them go to new homes. It makes it less hard when you know it's a good home they're in.

Abby and Gibbs

My sister, Reese, and Ducky (see? they're all kid-trained, lol)

Leto, who should be fixed at the October clinic

Leto's brother, Jared

Gibbs, who is now available for adoption

Ducky, who will be fixed at the October clinic (she just in the last week pulled over 2 lbs)

Gibbs and his "littermate" Ducky

Gibbs, Abby, and Shannon got fixed at the clinic Saturday, so they are all available for adoption now. Shannon's available, but I'm hoping to keep her around a while longer so the boys (Jared and Leto) can learn more from her. Not that that should be a problem, seeing as she's about 2 years old, and it usually takes longer for adults to be adopted.

Abby is very laid-back and playful. You can do almost anything to this kitten, and she could care less. Very kid-friendly. She's a black and black-on-black tabby. She loves to snuggle and be loved, and she loves to give kisses (which sometimes become baths) on her own terms. She loves to play.

Gibbs is Abby's brother. He's a real cutie with a precious face, gray and white (with half a moustache and a goatee). Playful and pretty calm, he likes to sleep on people or in a kitty pile with his littermates. He's a very chill cat, just not as much as his sister, and good with kids. Very tolerating. Like any kitten, he loves to play.

Molly is about 6 months old. She's black and white, and still very much a kitten. She loves to play, and she's good with kids, having been lugged around by my 4 year old sister since she was about 6 weeks old. She likes to play, and she loves attention, and she will insist upon it. Once she gets used to other cats, she seems to be very lovey to those smaller than her after a while.

Shannon is about 2 years old, with an unknown history. She's a gray tabby. She'd do best, I believe, in a home with either no small children or a home where she'd be able to stay away from the child(ren). She has, thus far, been a one-person cat, attaching to myself, and tolerating everyone else with varying degrees of affection. She's shy, and skittish with other cats, but that could be because of her boys, Jared and Leto. She loves to be petted, talk, and purr. She's very social once she gets to trust you.

Those are my "adoptables" for now.

Rest in Peace, Rain

Sorry about the lack of posting. Life has been crazy since school started Aug. 20, and I started work on the 24th.

S. gave me her little bottle baby, Rain, since she was so tiny and just wasn't thriving on the bottle. I had a nursing mama, so we thought maybe she would catch up on Shannon's milk. Well, Shannon took to her fine, but it took us about 8 hours to get Rain to figure out what she was doing. Stubborn kitten.

A week after I got her, she passed away. I walked in to scoop the litter and she was lying on the floor, unmoving and cold. Needless to say, it was a huge shock. I hadn't expected it, and the first time you lose a foster is supposed to be the worst. I'll never get used to it. I hope it doesn't happen often. I'm not sure I could handle it if it did. We wrapped her in a towel, and buried her in our kitty graveyard in the backyard. I've been trying really hard not to think about it too much, because I still tear up, a week later. And I'd really rather not cry.

So rest in peace, sweet baby.

July 2009- August 29, 2009

Gibbs, Abby, and Ducky all managed to get some variety of a neurological virus, and Gibbs was in a pretty bad state when it was discovered something was really wrong (he was very dehydrated, pretty weak). Some fluids and a few days on antibiotics and being forcefed the gravy off of hard food soaked for a while, and Nutri-Cal, and he's fine now. So are the girls. Everyone is over it now, thank God. It was a pretty stressful weekend though (same weekend we lost Rain).

The boys, Jared and Leto, are getting bigger. They're eating hard food now, as Shannon is weaning them. They get hard food and canned food, both. Last I weighed them, they were 1 lb, 12 oz. and 1 lb, 11 oz., respectively.

The Newest Members...

Molly, who is available for adoption, playing with her favorite toy

Abby, Ducky, and Gibbs, happily conked out together

Shannon, my mama cat

Leto and Jared

Leto. Such a cutie...

Meet Shannon, Jared, and Leto. They're rescued from the same animal control place Gibbs and Abby were rescued from. Same kind of situation. Best guess is the mama is about 2 years old (according to the animal control people), but they guessed the babies to be about 2 weeks, and we're thinking probably closer to 4. They weigh 1 lb, 5 oz. each, which is the same that Ducky weighs now. They were surrendered by someone who found them near their house. The mama, Shannon, is skittish about loud noises, but she's a real sweetheart, loves to be petted and purrs and talks to you some. She's not a lap cat right now, she probably won't be, but she's a sweetie, very loving. And tame. She's a gorgeous gray tabby, and a good mother if her babies are anything to go by, though this will definitely be her last litter. As soon as her kiddos are weaned, the next clinic she'll be fixed and up for going to her new home, wherever that may be. But she's obviously a good mama, her babies are little butterballs. Leto is going to be a gray tabby, I'm pretty sure; Jared may be blue. It's still kind of a toss-up. I think they'll be fixed at the October clinic.

Abby and Gibbs, and possibly Ducky, if she gains more weight, will be fixed at the September clinic, and then they'll be ready to go to a new home. Gibbs and Abby are very laid-back, you can do just about anything to Abby and she could care less. But Ducky wants attention. She's very vocal, loves to be held, and sleep on people. And if she wants attention, you will know it. LOL.

Molly is fixed, has all 3 of her kitten shots (she can't have rabies until she's about 6 months old), and is ready for her new home. She's playful, loves to be petted, has a ready purr, and she sleeps with me, at the foot of the bed usually. She likes attention, but she can be independent, too, though she'd do best with another feline to play with.

If you're interested in any of these guys, email me, or FuRR at SaveaCat @ (without the spaces).

Pictures of Gibbs, Abby, and Ducky

Loveable little Gibbs. He likes to snuggle.

Ducky, our loud mouth.


Abby, of the funny dark tabby pattern

As promised, pictures of my NCIS crew.

Abby and Gibbs are about 7 weeks old now, and Ducky is about 5.5 weeks, or so. I'm hesitant to call her 6 just yet, because she's not quite to where Gibbs and Abby were when we got them a week ago. But it's all kind of a toss-up anyway. Ducky is in that 'I have to explore everything' stage, whereas Gibbs and Abby are generally content to simply lay on someone and be cuddled. I'm guessing probably because they missed that in their early weeks. Ducky was like that at first. They're all real sweethearts.

Sunday, August 9, 2009

August 12 is Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Day! has declared August 12 Adopt a Less Adoptable Pet Day! Less adoptable pets include older animals (above kitten and puppy age), as well as seniors, animals with special needs, shy animals, animals that are black in color, and breeds that have an accompanying stigma.

FuRR has several cats that fall into these catagories. We have older cats (we have cats from kittens to several years old), black cats, cats who are FIV or FeLK +, or have other special needs, such as being blind or lame.

You should check out Petfinder's page about this day. It provides some interesting insight.

In other news, Ducky now has some littermates. I went to a local animal control shelter that is high intake and low outgoing and rescued them from being euthanized. They're about 6 weeks old, so a little older than Ducky, and we're calling them Abby and Gibbs (yep, our own NCIS crew). They're believed to be siblings, as they were brought in together, but as is often the case with strays, nothing is for sure. But you can't tell me these kittens don't know how close they came to not making it. They are some of the most tolerating kittens I have ever seen. Abby is like a jell-o cat. You can hold her, hang her upside down, she's just very go-with-the-flow. My sister even put a bow in her "hair". Abby has a black head, legs, and tail, and her mid-section is a really dark tabby with dark grey tips. It's the funniest looking thing, but so pretty at the same time. Her brother, Gibbs, looks like a darker (bigger) version of Ducky, with more grey. He's very laid-back and playful, but not quite as social as Ducky and Abby, but he doesn't mind being held and played with. He's just not going to come running for it like the girls. He also has half a "moustache" and a "goatee". It's so funny. He's a very cute kitten, very round. I need to get some pictures of them soon to post on here. Abby, Gibbs, and Ducky should all be fixed at the September clinic, and then they'll be clear to be adopted. Abby and Gibbs should definitely be ready to be fixed then, Ducky is small so it's kind of a toss-up at this point. But Molly is available right now. She's a sweetheart, and she's gotten more "pet-me"-ish since Keely was adopted. They were littermates and buddies, but aside from depending more on humans for affection, she hasn't shown any negative effects of Keely leaving, thankfully.

We had our August clinic yesterday, and we did something or another to 58 cats! We spayed or neutered 55, and gave shots/blood tests/etc. only to 3 others. Whew!

Keely was Adopted!

Keely was adopted last night! It was also the first adoption I've done alone, without S. or anyone to help me. She has 2 other torties, had 3, but one died of cardiomyopathy, and she loooooves torties. She's also an old hand in rescue so I know Keely is safe with her. Keely's name will be changed, which is fine, and when I know, I'll mention it on here. But she has a good home now, with feline and canine sisters, and a person who really knows what she's doing.

Now I just need a home for Molly and my entire first litter will have found homes.

I want to post a picture of Keely, but Snapfish (my photo storage site that I use) is being cranky. So maybe later.

Meet Ducky

Is this not just one of the cutest things you've ever seen?

I rescued her on Friday, and I took her to Petsmart with me yesterday to let more experienced eyes gauge her age and health. She's 4-5 weeks old. And just for the nifty birthday, I think I'm putting it on July 4. It's right at about 4 weeks, but when she's older a week won't matter, and she'll have a fun and easy to remember birthday. And an annual celebration, lol. She's surprisingly healthy, and her ears are remarkably clean. Other than being covered in bug bites, she's great. Still dirty in spots, she didn't appreciate the short and not heavy-duty bath I gave her Friday night. So her feet and rear aren't real clean still. But she's eating good, playing good, using the litter box. Assuming she gains enough weight, she should be fixed at the September clinic, just over a month away.

Oh, and the picture is her passed out on my lap at Petsmart yesterday. The blue cord is her leash since she didn't want to just stay in my lap, and I didn't want a repeat of the Great Kitten Escapade.

Ducky is the sweetest thing. We call her Ducky because her meow is more of a 'meh' and sounds kind of like a rubber ducky, she's the first of my "NCIS crew", and she was found on a really wet day.

Now to her finding story: She was found in a ditch on Wednesday, which for anyone who lives around here, you will remember was incredibly wet. She was found in a ditch under grass and a tree limb, screaming her heart out (which I can definitely see. She's a loud mouth, lol.) So she's a survivor. Fortunately, it wasn't cold. The lady who found her couldn't find a mother or littermates, so who knows?

If you're interested in Ducky, let me or FuRR know. You can go ahead and fill out an application and all and place a deposit on her if your application is deemed to be a suitable match for Ducky. Obviously, you can't take her home until she's fixed, but she could be "your's" before then.

Update on Daytona

Trying to figure out how to get his "brother" who is up on the pool table.

Daytona is apparently settling into his new home swimmingly. Our kitten who was scared of all the big cats has apparently found a kindred spirit in his new "big brother".

From Daytona's new family:
"Daytona will climb up on our bed at night (it's a pretty tall bed) and sleep above our head on the pillow....IT IS SOOOO CUTE!!! He is soooo playful. He can find ANYTHING to play with.

He is still a little shy when a new person comes around....he'll run under our bed, but he has definitely gotten used to us and our house. He loves to play on our stairs. He can't jump up on our pool table, but the bigger cat will get up there and Daytona will be underneath trying to get each other. It's so funny to watch them both. It's like they have been brothers from the get go. I was very worried that they wouldn't take to each other, but they have to my surprise!!!"

It's good to hear he's happy and has a family who obviously cares for him, both the humans and the furry. I love getting updates. It's nice to see that "my" kiddos do well in their new homes.

Daytona was adopted!

Our cutie, Daytona, was adopted at Petsmart today. He's going to a family with a little girl, about 9 or 10 or so, who will love one him, I'm sure. I think he'll be okay there. Keely was looked at, but the adoption was a no-go.

But happy news for Daytona.

Cute Daytona Pictures

Daytona (and my sister, Reese)

Is he not just uber precious? I'm still arguing with myself over whether I'm going to Petsmart tomorrow, after last week's fiasco. If I do, I'm taking all 3 (Daytona, Keely, and Molly). I need to get some new shots of the others too.

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Update on Daytona

Daytona is cute. That can't be denied in our household. He's precious. He's a ball of fur with a fur halo. And since the escapade on Sunday, we've been doing "tough love", a.k.a. loving him whether he wants to be or not. We hold him and pet him whether he wants to be or not. When my Dad was moving in my little sister's bed (which made a lot of noise), I held him through it, though he wanted to run. I shifted hands more in 2 minutes than I have in a while with him, to keep a hold on him and try to comfort him through the noise.

And over the last few days, he's gotten a lot more lovey. He's still skittish, big noises scare him. But he's much more loving. He'll come out from his favorite hiding place (under our coffee table which is low to the ground and therefore, the big cats can't get to him.) and sit on my dad. He'll go from my dad and hop over onto the other couch and sit on me or my mom. But when he's scared, he's right back under the table.

I say this after Elsie (one of my big cats) decided to go after him. There was hissing and growling but no one was injured. Although it was loud. :/ For some reason, Elsie isn't really fond of Daytona. He plays with Nuala and the others fine, but for some reason, she's just not fond of Daytona. But Daytona has some big boots. He'll hiss and growl and spit when scared. He seems to think he's much bigger than he actually is (2 lbs., a good handful).

He loves to play, though, and be petted. He loves to be petted. He'll flop over onto his back to have his tummy rubbed, and then he'll "bunny foot" as we call it and grab onto your hands and nip. It's play-fighting. None of the other kittens have really taken to him, so we're the only "training" he's had, as a singleton. But he's the sweetest thing. He's cute, precious, loving, and has a ready purr. He'll make someone a good baby.

It's Funny Now That It's Over...

But at the wasn't funny at all.

I went to PetSmart in North Little Rock yesterday, for the adoption show-thingy we (FuRR) do there on Sundays. I wasn't planning on taking any kitties with me, since Keely, Molly, and Daytona all got fixed on Saturday. But Daytona was acting normal, so I decided I'd take him with me. And then he decided to hide, so it was a no go. And then...he came out and I was able to catch him, so I took him with me. Soon after I got on the interstate, I got this feeling and thought for a moment about taking Daytona back home. But I was already running late, and I was going, more or less, so I could see Mac, my first (and only, so far) adoptee. Who by the way is HUGE. He's like twice the size of his sister, Nuala. But anyway, back on topic. So I continued to North Little Rock, and about the time I get into my parking spot, I get a message from K. saying the Mac is there. I text her back and tell her I'm in the parking lot. I go in, see Mac, help give him his vaccines, and hold him a bit, and say bye. And then K. gets Daytona settled into a "display" kennel. He's, to say the least, not real thrilled. There's no where to hide and there's lots of odd noises and sounds. But, I figure, it's good for him, to get used to it.

After a little while, I decide he might like to be held, to be surrounded by a familiar scent. And some of you can see where this is going, right? Yeah. I'm holding him and all of a sudden, he jumps down and is off! I'm trying to keep up with him (he went under the table, I couldn't. There were carriers there.), K. has to hand off her kitten to help me chase Daytona around PetSmart. I've never felt like I was in a H@nnah Mont@na episode, but I really did as I ran through the store yelling 'catch that kitten!' to anyone I passed. I yelled it at a group of teenage girls he ran by and only one took off after him. If you ever see this, thank you for helping.

He ran under the big shelf for cat condos and kitty litter, and we're chasing him from end to end under this shelf, trying to catch him. I would pay to have those under-areas blocked at this point. And somewhere in this, I remember thinking 'this will make a great blog post'. We have at least 10 people after this 2 lb kitten, bird nets and all kinds of things. And then...he just poofs. No one saw where he went and no one can find him. We looked just about every where in that store for roughly 3 hours. We got kitten traps brought in and set them up, and I sadly left without Daytona. We put food in the traps and set them, and hoped he would be found this morning. After all, he's a kitten. Hunger has to hit eventually.

Mom called PetSmart this morning to see if he'd been caught. He had, they just hadn't called yet. So we told them we'd be over as soon as we can to get him.

So this afternoon I went to pick up Daytona, and he just looks at me like 'HI MOM!'. Thank god, he's cute. He was found in the trap by receiving. Thank goodness, he got hungry.

Anyone want a kitten with a story? LOL.

Available for Adoption!

Daytona got fixed today (7/11) and got his first round of shots. Since he's fixed and has gotten his first vacs, he is available for adoption. He's a medium to long haired gray tabby, and his eye infection or kitty cold, whatever it was, has cleared up. He's a sweetie, very cuddly. Loves to be played with. Very fluffy. He's about 10 weeks old, we're putting his birthday at May 2nd, 2009.

This is Molly. She's our feisty girl, loving, very playful, but full of attitude. She was fixed today (7/11) and has had 2 rounds of her kitten shots (out of the 3 needed for kittens). She has a very silky coat. She likes to play with dangly things. She is available for adoption. She is roughly 3 months old. I think we put her birthday at March 30, 2009. She's petite, but makes up for it in heart and attitude. :D She's Keely's littermate.

This is Keely. Keely is a very laid back tortoiseshell calico. She's very chill and loves to snuggle. She often sleeps with me, and wants to be petted, and she knows how to be insistent about getting the pets she wants. ;) She was spayed today (7/11) and had round 2 of her kitten shots. She is available for adoption. She's 3 months old, and her birthday is guessed at March 30, 2009. She's Molly's littermate.

If you would like to look into adopting one of these kittens, please email me using the email link on the left side of the page, the gray and white cat holding a letter. Just click there. Or you can email FuRR at saveacat @ (without the spaces, which are there to prevent spam bots). It's $70 to adopt any of these sweethearts, which includes a bag of kitten food, coupons, a nail trim, some flea treatment, and there may be more that I'm not remembering. Not to mention a new best friend! We're at the PetSmart in North Little Rock most Sundays, but I'm not there every weekend, so if you want to meet one of these cuties, I need to know in advance to make sure I'm there if I can be.

Oh, and P.S. the names we give them are "stage names". The person/people who adopt them are welcome to change them if they like. It would just be hard to wander around calling them Cat A, Cat B, etc. LOL.

(that whitish part at the corner of his eyes are the third eyelid, I believe. They're more reddish in real life.)
Daytona, who is also sometimes called Tony, LOOOOVES to have his belly rubbed.

This is my most recent sweetie. His eyes have cleared up a lot, but his third eyelid is persistent in staying partially out. But the drainage is all clear now. He's such a lover, loves to be petted, that's all he really wants right now, is company and pets. If it doesn't go back down by Saturday, I guess FuRR's vet will have to have a look-see. But hopefully, these drops will clear it up. He's a real cutie. I hope he gets a good family soon. Same for Keely and Molly. I don't want them to go, but it's rewarding to see them go to good families, and particularly to get updates. :D Updates are fun.

What's Going Down...

I got my camera back today, so I will try to take some better shots of Daytona this evening to post. His eyes are looking much better. I think they may still be running a bit, but it's clear now, instead of that greeny snot stuff. Even my inexperienced self can tell that's a good thing. He's only had one dose of some uber eye meds (I can't remember what they were) that was a kind of gel-ish stuff, and 2 drops in each eye of an eye drop that I'd have to go look at it to see what it is. But he's already looking a lot better, like his eyes aren't bothering him so much. And he never acted "pitiful" to begin with! He's still in kitty isolation for now, though. He may be fixed this weekend with Keely and Molly, provided his eyes are cleared up. Then he, along with Keely and Molly, will be available for adoption.

The older kittens, Nuala, Keely, and Molly (Nuala is spoken for, the paperwork just needs to be filled out) are getting bigger. Keely has finally gotten enough bounce into her to able to jump onto smooth surfaces. Like the toilet, and the toilet to the cabinet, etc. She was the first one to accomplish this. Little, calm, laid-back Keely. Then today, Nuala got on a box and managed to make the jump from the box to the top of our organ. Okay, there was some claw assistance there, but that's still the biggest jump she's made. Now, we're waiting for Molly to find something to scale. Of course, she may be like Chi-Chi and have no interest in heights. Chi-Chi was over 2 years old before she started getting up on anything higher than the table, and she still doesn't do it much at all.

One funny thing Molly did do, though, was pass out on Mom. She curled up on Mom and sacked out. Reese even dumped lids full of water on her and she never woke up. Then, still asleep, she gradually uncurled until she was lying, belly up, on my Mom with her front paws extended above her head and her hind legs out on the other side of Mom. Completely asleep. It was comical. But the really funny part was when she started to wake up. She went to stretch and then started to slide into the space between Mom and I, so the hind legs flew up and she went heels over head into this gap, and then she pops up with this "WTH?" look. It was toooo funny.

Hope everyone's having a good summer. Try and stay cool, and remember to keep the critters cool, too. They have fur coats after all.

New Foster Baby

Reese (my sister) and Daytona

I got a new foster kit today. His name is Daytona, and he is at least 8 weeks old, based on the fact his eye color has set in. They're a pretty copper color. He's a grey tabby, VERY fluffy. I'm betting he'll either be a long-hair or a medium-hair. He has some kind of eye infection currently, so he's in kitty isolation. Poor baby has eye snot.

A lady found him this weekend and has been keeping him on her deck in the day and in the garage in her dog kennel at night. She couldn't keep him due to a variety of reasons, among them being she's way allergic to cats. So for her to be so sweet to him was really nice. He's pretty well filled out, not scrawny by any stretch, small but not skin and bones. She called FuRR and S. emailed me and asked me if I wanted to take over his "case". So I called the lady up and met her in North Little Rock and voila!, I have another kitten who absolutely ADORES being petted and loved on. His biggest bane in life right now is probably being in isolation. He's the sweetest little thing, a bit skittish but he's small, and we're big. Who can blame him?

I'll get better pictures of him this evening or tomorrow and post them.

Spay/Neuter Clinic

Keely and Molly are supposed to be fixed at the clinic this weekend. They should be ready to go by the 19th (to give them a week to heal in a familiar setting, get back to acting normal, and for me to make sure their incisions are healing up okay.)

Anyone interested in these precious little buggers?

They've grown so much!

It's odd to look at my kits and see how much they've grown. I guess it's kind of like preschoolers, they've lost their "baby" looks, but they're definitely not grown up either. But they've changed a lot since we got them, gotten bigger, both physically and personality-wise. Nuala's the diva, but she's also the one who will "fight" with Chi-Chi and Elsie, both of which mother all 3 of the babies. She's very playful and very loving. Molly's fiesty, she really ought to be a redhead. She's loving, but she's definitely not afraid to make it known that 'okay, time to let me down'. She's the one who used to hiss as a baby, and still does if the situation calls for it. It was really cute when she was a baby because it definitely wasn't threatening. Keely is our calm girl, she likes to be petted. All you have to do is look at her good to get a purr, touch her and you have a loud purr. She'll tolerate just about anything. Go figure, since torties usually have "tortie-tude". LOL.

They've all grown so much. It's amazing.

Kitty Pictures

Nuala gets friendly sparring lessons from my older calicos, Chi-Chi and Elsie. This is Elsie.


Molly (and Keely's rear)

Keely and Molly are both scheduled to be fixed July 11th. Once they are fixed (and recovered a bit), they will be available for adoption for $70. If you would be interested in adopting either of these kittens, you can email me (see the email cat on the sidebar), and I'll contact the higher-ups in FuRR, or you can email FuRR directly at saveacat @ (remove the spaces).

Nuala is probably spoken for. :D

We were at PetSmart in North Little Rock today, and we adopted out at least 4 cats, I think it was 5. One of them was a 2 year old black cat known as Willow. We're always happy (and sad, too, of course, if we've fostered them) to see them find good families, but especially happy when the non-kittens get adopted.
