Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Busy, busy—not my favorite word!


I missed doing my Friday Memes post last week ‘cuz Mom L was busy, busy, busy with a bunch of community cat rescue stuff. I know, I know, this is impawtant work for me too but golly gee whiz! I really like making up my memes!! So how’s it goin’ at your castle? Are your humans always busy, busy, busy???

So here’s one example. We loaned a trap to a nice woman who needs to trap a semi-friendly young adult kitty who she is feeding in her backyard. She calls him “Pi” like in “pirate” ‘cuz he has one eye that is not right. Anywho; she made a neuter appointment for him so Mom L and I loaned her a trap. She has even bought a very nice outdoor shelter for Pi and she really loves him!

Sadly, as you can see in the photos Pi has a serious issue with his right eye. The Vet will do what he can when he gets neutered this coming Friday; but Pi may lose that eye. I will let you know next Monday if I can.

Then we helped trap another backyard kitty that has been suffering with pain and discomfort in his mouth. He has been drooling and crying when he tries to eat; especially hard food. He does much better with soft food. So we helped the caretaker trap him and get him to our county animal shelter for diagnosis and hopefully treatment. Unfortunately, he needs a very expensive dental due to severe gingivitis and stomatitis. He needs most of his toofies extracted and our county shelter has the dental equipment, but they do not have Vet time to do the work. His caretaker, Miss Melissa, calls him Cookie! So we got Cookie set up at her home inside in a 36 inch cage so he can wait comfortably until we can get him into a Vet hospital for his dental and extractions. He goes in this week on Wednesday and we already know that the cost will exceed our Delta View Cats Emergency Medical Fund. Soooo—Mom L is busy, busy getting some fundraising started online. If you wanna help Cookie’s mouth get all better, you can donate on our website at Or on our Facebook page. Just note “for Cookie’s toofies”.

He’s a real cutie, isn’t he? The shelter gave his caretaker some pain meds to put in his food until we can get him his dental.

And of course Mom L and Dad P have been busy, busy, busy trying to get all five of our foster kittens adopted. Tiffany is about eight months old and she is very good at adoptions; although she does nap her way through most of the time!! MOL!!

The kittens are often split up into two cages. You can see Laughing Samantha and her sister Jessie James cuddling together for a nap. And then one time Laughing Samantha was with her brother The Domino Kid. We set them up so Tiffany can be in a cage between or next to them.

Of course what would kitten season be without Dad P finding a mom cat and four kittens in the back patio of the vacant rental next-door to us!! So far, our trapping efforts have been wins for the mom cat and kittens and mostly losses for Mom L. She did trap one kitten and one of our Delta View Cats volunteers, Miss Jennifer, is fostering it. The kittens are about 5 weeks old.

We also have a sweet black juvenile kitty in a cage that Mom L trapped last night when she was trying to catch more kittens. This kitty will be spayed this week then released. As you can see, there are no dull moments around my castle right now. What’s up with all of you!!

    We love your memes Savvy but we love all the help you and your peeps are giving these kitties. One of our boys who already had all his teeth out is now dealing with an eye probalem and has a appointment with a specialist. We send purrayers and POTP to all of you and yours !

  7. Your pawrents are wonderful, with all the the work they do forr com-mew-nity kitties.
    Our Mummy does her best, feeding the cats in Our Street effurry evening and She is happy to find that some other people in the vicinity are doing likewise.
    Some of those kitties know where Mummy lives and they come and wait outside for her if she is late!

  8. Savvy, your human is awesome the way she looks out for the community cats in your area! They are lucky to have her there.

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
