Monday Meowsie News


Not a ton of stuff going on in my castle this past week EXCEPT for the new news Mom L posted on her Facebook page. Now the photo was taken in the darkest hour of the early morning so you only get a backside view, but from this you can verify just who this kitty is.

Yes!! Katie finally moved over to Mom L’s side of the bed one night this week. She is becoming an “equal opportunity bed warmer” for both Mom L and Dad P.

As for what’s up with me this week, I am starting to take back my place on my our couch at night with Mom L. As you may recall, KK has been trying to steal borrow this prize location. You’d think Mom L could’a caught me in a more favorable pose though, na’ mean??

What? I was just making sure my tail is still attached!

If you missed my Friday Memes, they you are gonna appreciate me sharing this photo with you. Mom L volunteered her time one afternoon at a “Kitchen Clinic” with Community Concern For Cats, CC4C, and was sure she saw a bunch of white ferrets show up!! She shook her head and looked outside again and this is what she saw.

Yoo hoo?? Anybody out there????

These six kittens, four all white, one white with black accessories and one with a dab of light gray paint on top of his head, are one of THREE litters of white kittens all from the same dad!! Three different tabby moms and dad is also a tabby?? Go figure!!

Mom L met another adult cat at this clinic. He just showed up in his foster Mom’s backyard a couple of days before the clinic. Not neutered and begging to be held constantly. He had some real vocal cords this one did!! MOL!!  Miss Gemma who runs this clinic would have to pick him up and carry him around the room to collect worming meds and claw whackers for his care.

Isn’t he a handsome Bengal boy?

Let me hear in comments what’cha think is the most inner’esting Meowsie News this week!


Monday Meowsie Variety Photos


I thought you might all enjoy seeing some photos of the kitties I featured in my last Monday Meowsie News post. And I am also tossing in some of me, TKS and KK.

This is an “almost” wordless Monday!!

First up is ME, or course! I so luvluvluv having my head brushed, don’t you?

Ahhh…just the purrfect spot

And Kit Katie aka KK, has so many new photos, I had to kind’a pick just a few.

Tks decided to join me and KK in a group photo opportunity.

All three of us taking our afternoon naps

Now here’s the latest and greatest news!! No photo, but verified by Mom L’s new eyesight after her cat-er-act surgeries. Mom L got up to visit the human’s litter box a few nights ago, and she discovered KK and TKS curled up like doughnuts, butt to butt, furrs touching, snoozing against Dad P’s leg!!! CONTACT!!!

Remember our rescue kitty, Bianca, from the park colony. Check her out after her spay and during her recovery with her foster Mom Miss Helen.

Isn’t she something??? She goes to adoption event next weekend. And she has the most lovely roomie, Miss Penelope.

Of course Katie wanted my readers to check out her latest moves and moments too.

That’s it for us this week with our Monday Meowsie news. Mom L fought with Word Press to do a better presentation of our photos but she lost her battle. We hope you still enjoy seeing us.


Monday Meowsie News: Friendly Community Cats


Bet’cha my readers already know this, but—not all community cats are really “feral” cats.

Feral: in a wild state, especially after escape from captivity or domestication

Lots of them had homes and for whatever reasons, they were abandoned to live on their own.

My Paw It Forward work with Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) runs across many cats, adults, who fall right into the “friendly” range of our community cat work.

Thought you would enjoy learning about three new great “friendlies” we are now trying to help find forever homes.


Cinder showed up to eat at one of our volunteer’s backyard small colonies. Meow!! That was his lucky day! PDVC got him neutered, chipped, vaccinated and we are now trying to find adoption paths for him.

He is a very young, handsome boycat. We are working on helping him find his adoption path.


Miss Bianca appeared at our city River View Park colony one day, looking very bedraggled, and scared and hungry. Her fur was unkempt and she was showing lots of her bones.

Our colony feeders worked on her and within a bare few days, she started to show her REAL SELF. Caretakers names her Bianca and she is now on her path to adoption. Now spayed, chipped, vaccinated and loved by all who come in contact with her. Our Community Concern For Cats, CC4C, low cost S/N clinic hospital were taken with sweet Bianca and a member offered to recover her after surgery and foster he until she is adopted!!

Bianca has striking blue eyes and the sweetest temperament. When Mom L took her out of her carried to move to her recovery cage, she started purring immediately!!


Cruiser is a great name because we discovered that she was “cruising” between two of our feeders!! Yep! She now had a tummy on her!! Cruiser went in for her spay, only to discover that she was ALREADY spayed!! And she has a microchip!! We are now waiting to learn if that chip had a guardian attached to it. If not, we will work with the county near us who chipped her to get her chip released so she can be adopted out. Cruiser spent a bit of time with us and she is soooooo loving!!

It happens that when we work with “friendlies” in community cat targeted TNR that they have a chip. However, it also happens that even if we find that “chip owner” they refuse to admit they own that cat OR the chip is never registered.

Unfortunately for the “chipped friendly cat”, the rescue must find the owner of that chip and get them to “release” the cat from the chip so that we can then get the cat into an adoption path.

That is our work now for Cruiser.

Let me know if you have ever rescued a cat with a chip and how you worked through that.
