Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Friday Memes for Friday Smiles


Kit Katie aka KK, wanted to be first up today. She truly believes that getting up on the tippy top of a cat tower or the stairs will always help her sleep better. What say any of you my readers? Do you prefer heights to help you nap?

And then TKS jumped up and down begging to be the next in our line up of memes today.

You can probably tell that she has a bit of a ‘tude toward the humans. She’s kind’a sort’a on a…ahem, koff, koff…diet.

Yeah, well I am sure all of you can relate to my ‘tude in this meme. I know that Mom L loved being in England and Ireland where no one ever tried to jump the queue like she experiences here at home.

Hope you get a smile or two from our furramily efforts today.


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.



Friday Memes for Friday Smiles


My post is a tad late ‘cuz Mom L and Dad P had to take care of cats we were holding over night for their spay today at Community Concern For Cats (CC4C) clinic. They were up early to transport to the clinic so I just managed to get Mom L to loan my her opposable thumbs so’s I can get this post to all of my readers. Get ready for some big Friday smiles!!

The photos for today’s memes are all taken from a Kitchen Kitten Clinic Mom L helped with yesterday in Miss Gemma’s kitchen. Miss Gemma is the president for CC4C. I have covered those Kitchen Kitten Clinics in the past, check out one here.

That little tabby kitten was not happy gettin’ his bloods stolen!!

Mom L also helped with some adult cats. Not sure they enjoyed the Kitchen Clinic any more than the kittens did!!

Yep! I got that right. This tuxie boy did not think this position was what he would call “chillin'”, na’ mean??

And my Russian Blue buddy definitely didn’t like the sound of “urine sample”!!!

Let me hear in comments if you got a smile or two going from my Friday Memes!
