New Foster Mom Saves Six Kittens

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I have such an exciting story to share with you about six kittens our Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) group helped through targeted TNR (trap, neuter, return) in our city. If you live anywhere there is a “kitten season” in the USA you know that by June time most public shelters are about full up with kittens, in shelter and in foster care.

That happened with two litters one resident had, Miss Jessica, in our PDVC project area in Pittsburg, CA. We were able to get one set of kittens into the municipal shelter but by the time we could catch the mom cat and other kittens from two other litters, the shelter was full. Shelter staff advised we have the resident “foster in place and socialize” and try to get them into the shelter in the Fall/Winter.

That is exactly what Miss Jessica did!! She cared for two gray kittens, and five black and black and white kittens from two mom cats for SEVEN MONTHS!! Miss Jessica has never fostered before and she works full time. But, she did one heck of a great job with these kittens. One of the black and whites was adopted by her friend, but the other six stayed with her, inside and well loved and well fed!

The first two Mom L took to the shelter right after Christmas, one gray and one white with black, have been pulled by a wonderful rescue for their Kitty Corner, Contra Costa Humane Society (CCHS).

The white with black started to chill’ax faster, but the gray kitty turned out to be a lap cat!

You can see that both became very comfy and that is why CCHS pulled them and they are on their way to forever homes!

The second pair Mom L toke to the shelter on Jan. 2nd.

Another gray kitty, with striking amber eyes and a tuxedo. They are still shy but coming around.

The last two were taken in Jan 8 and are still very scared as they were the least socialized of the six. But once the first four were gone, these two started to interact with foster Miss Jessica more easily.

 

Here are their intake photos at the shelter. Both are female, one tuxedo and one all black.

I will keep you posted on the kitties if I can. Targeted TNR works! And people do care and people really ARE THE SOLUTION!!

What do you think about that notion?

How do you use your television?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

The question for my Monday post is all about sharing how we all interact with our human’s televisions. Of course I am assuming you 1) live with a human who has a TV and 2) that you care one whiff about said TV!

Starting with TKS.

I can see everything in the living room from here! Sweet!

Of course it never crosses TKS’ mind that NO ONE who is attempting to watch that TV can see through her! This is a new sitting post for TKS and it is driving Mom L mad!! Too funny!!! MOL!

I am NOT a copy cat!! I like it up here!

And there you have it. Katie aka KK has decided to try out TKS’ approach for surveying the room from wherever the humans place their TV.  However, KK chose to take the TV perch on in our bedroom.

Zzzzz…*snort*…zzzzz

As for me, I choose to take my TV time in stride. And nap. What in Ceiling Cat’s name does a human TV have to offer us cats!!

Pretty cute, aren’t they?

And I now that Mom L just luvluvluv’s to see my little pink toe pads when I snooze next to her on our couch while she watches her sill human TV.

So come on my pals, share with me how you use your humans’ television??

Monday Meowsie Variety Photos

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

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.
