Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Foster Kittens Update: Going, going, GONE!!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I am totally sure you all remember those three pesky cute foster kittens we had, right?

Well I have spent a ton of time asking Ceiling Cat to please help those kittens break outta my former shelter Kitty Corner. Now you know I think Kitty Corner is the best place for any cat to be if it’s lookin’ for a forever family. Heck, I may have waited a whole year, but look what a great family I found! Nonetheless, a shelter is a shelter and not a true home, right?

I cannot keep you in suspense. Chloe and Rocky went to a home together. As soon as the man and woman entered their room at Kitty Corner, Rocky and Chloe moved in on them! They loved their ankles, asked to be pet and in general—made the humans into a bowl of mush! They so wrapped them around their little paws those humans never had a chance!!

Interestingly, Jessie stayed in his cubbie and outta sight. What’s up with that?? Right? More on this later.

So off go Chloe and Rocky together to their delightful forever home.

Rocky

And now for the Happy Tail Ending for precious Jessie. On the very same day, after Jessie rejected first the man and woman who adopted Chloe and Rocky, and then he rejected the next couple, an man and woman with their twenty + year old son—Jessie would not respond at all when the two men tried so very hard to make friends with Jessie. He did love on the woman’s ankles and allow her to give him some pets. But clearly, he wasn’t taken to the two men. So this family moved on to adopt another cat. Mom L and Dad P worried that Jessie was left alone.

BUT—a very nice young woman came in just an hour or so later, and Jessie was ALL OVER HER!!! Jessie finally picked out his forever human!!

Same day, within three hours—all three of our foster kittens were off to their forever homes! How much better does that get??

Our three now “former” fosters all together.

Thank you all for caring about our three kitties.

Snipping a Budding Cat Colony: Part One

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I told you on my last blog post that I had a Monday Meowsie News story coming about Katie the Cat who is looking for her permanent home.

Hi! I am Katie the Cat

Truth be known, Katie was actually the beginning of what could have become a fast-growing community cat colony. But, thanks to Dad P’s quick thinking and Community Concern 4 Cats fast acting, that colony is no longer gonna happen.

I do like my inside and outside opportunities. A gal needs her fresh air

Thankfully, Katie’s original family had the good sense to have her spayed before they moved away and left her to fend for herself. Lucky for Katie she found some really kind and caring humans who offered her food and a safe, dry and warm place to live in their garden. She prefers to be able to come and go as she pleases, but I suspect if she were an only kitty, she would simply adore being with her forever human most.  Just my feline opinion, ya know?

Now about the cat colony that almost was! You see because Katie was being fed outside, another couple of young kitties showed up to dine with her. They were a young brother and sister from a litter the humans knew had been born in someone else’s yard. Neither had been spayed or neutered so you can guess what happened, right? (do be sure to hover over the photos to view the captions to learn who is who)

Yep! Piper and her brother mated. This incest mating caused Piper to deliver six kittens in her caretakers’ bedroom closet! Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, three of those kittens were so malformed, without limbs or overly large and whatnot, that they were stillborn. Three kittens survived.

Piper is a great Mom Cat and the human caretakers made sure she and the kittens got lots of food and water and dry safe places to sleep outside. Piper even enjoys being inside and lounging on her male human’s lap!

Long story short—enter Dad P going around our town home complex to let our new neighbors know he was running for our Home Owners Association, Board of Directors.

He met the kitties’ caretakers and noticed all the cats and asked “are these your cats?”. The answer was—“well, not really. We just started feeding them.”

And there was the budding cat colony! So Dad P let Mom L know where the cats were and they both went to talk with the caretakers to learn what we could do to help.

Bottom line is—in less than ten days, Mom L had Mom Cat Piper and her four kittens, all four months old, set up with appointments at CC4C’s new Cat Clinic for spay/neuter, Vet checks, vaccinations, FeLV testing (negative all)!! (more about this wondrous new clinic in another post…don’t miss it!).

Sweet Jessie also had a hernia and CC4C took care of that as well.

Now about darling Katie. Mom L and her caretaker Miss Tonya took Katie to the clinic for a checkup and vaccinations and testing for FeLV when they went to collect all the spay/neuters.  Katie is now all set to go up for adoption too!

Can you see my opposite orange and black furs?

All cats are now recovered and ready for adoption!!

Please, please SHARE SHARE SHARE this blog post to help all of these now “NOT a budding cat colony” cats find their permanent loving homes?

A photo to Celebrate #RememberMeThursday

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have just one “meme” for you today. And I offer it to again to celebrate and reaffirm the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s #RememberTheRescue day for Thursday, September 28, 2017.

Mom L and Dad P spent #RememberMeThursday helping some of our new neighbors getting a young Mom cat and her three, four month old, kittens, off to be spayed, neutered and vaccinated, etc. And, this also include one of my most favorite tortie adult cats in need of her forever home.

You see, Katie, the adult tortie, was likely left to fend for herself when her first “family” moved and left her all alone. Our new neighbors soon took her in to feed and take care of her as best they could for over two years. Thankfully, she was already spayed!

Long story, coming on my Monday Meowsie News Blog Post, is that Katie had likely never been to a vet, nor had any vaccinations and she desperately needed them all in order to get her on an adoption path.

So when Mom L delivered some extra cat carriers to our neighbors to help them collect the mom cat and her three kittens, it was a surprise to find that sweet Katie was the first to occupy one of the carriers!! Oh my goodness, was she ever so surprised about where that carrier would take her!!

Wait! That needle is gonna get stuck in where??!!

Precious Katie was not happy about “where” that carrier ended up taking her. But good to know, she is now vaccinated, flea treated, wormed and micro-chipped AND she is negative on the snap FeLv test!! Miss Katie will be up for adoption immediately. She is a total purr lady cat, and wanting her own home preferable without other cats. Yes, Miss Katie is a bit of a Princess!!

I know this is not one of my “regular” fun and funny animal memes, but seriously, isn’t Katie just too cute??!!  If you are anyone you know might be willing to create a space in your home and heart for Katie, please let me know in comments.
