Friday Smiles from Friday Memes

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

This week I am featuring some of our kitties from Project Delta View Cats flagship community cat colony at a local city park.

That is sweet orange Garfield being led to the food station by his ever present tabby buddy Walter. They are great friends in this colony. Garfield is almost fifteen years old and in desperate need of a dental. He gets his special soft food meal once a day and as much as he can eat.

And this is our newest little cutie pie who was dumped here from another area. We know this because she has an ear tip, and WE didn’t give that to her!! She is still shy but such a darling kitty. We still have not named her. If you were to name this kitty, what would it be??? Give me a shout out in comments!!

This is a photo of our former kitten fosters Rocky and Chloe!! Rocky is STILL the huggy guy he was as a kitten!! And Chloe still tolerates her brother!!

Project Delta View Cats Has Arrived!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I promised to share what Mom L and Dad P have been up for almost two years.

Stop the press!!! Breaking News from Savannah’s Paw Tracks!!!

When we moved to our final forever home in Pittsburg, CA, Mom L and Dad P found more abandoned, stray community cats than they have ever known. Their work began with the kitties in the photo collage below.

The orange kitty is Pumpkin, living on a street corner for eighteen months after being abandoned when guardians moved from apartment near us. The kittens are Rocky, Jessie and Chloe, born in a neighbor’s closet and they could not afford to spay/neuter them and their mom Piper. Mom cat Mandi and her kitten Andi living at the Elk’s Lodge near us and Strider, who lived his sixteen years at our River View Park cat colony.

These kitties led Mom L and Dad P to create a program we hope you will support—Project Delta View Cats.

Who we are

We’re Project Delta View Cats (PDVC), a volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) based in Pittsburg, CA, working tirelessly to stabilize the city’s abandoned community cat population through a targeted Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. The mission of Project Delta View Cats (PDVC) is to promote and provide humane management of community cats within the City limits of Pittsburg, California. Educating the community is our primary goal! We are starting this summer to work with our local public schools.

Where we operate (Pilot area)_

We are currently identifying and helping to trap abandoned community cats along our city’s waterfront neighborhoods.

Our partnerships make us unique

For 15 months, we’ve been working on lining up our partnerships with the City of Pittsburg, Contra Costa Animal Services, Community Concern for Cats, and Friends of Contra Costa Animal Shelters to promote and deliver humane management of abandoned community cats and to conduct ongoing targeted TNR.

PDVC elected to NOT become another 501 c3 community cat rescue. We do not have a referral line for city residents to call when they need community cats trapped. We are PRO-active, not RE-active. We are going door to door searching each segment of our pilot neighborhoods to educate residents about spay, neuter and help those who feed community cats get them spayed, neutered and medical care if needed. Our unique Neighborhood Cat Watch residents will alert us whenever a new cat enters their neighborhood so we can immediately TNR that cat.

We are creating a “Humane Community Cat Management and Education Program In A Box”!!! We will make sure other cities anywhere can follow in my, Savannah’s, paw tracks!!

How you can help

Donation: All donations are tax-deductible and are slated for food, vaccination, spay/neuter, purchase of traps and recovery cages, and additional medical costs for any sick, injured or end-of-life services.

  • The cost to spay/neuter one cat is $45-65.
  • The monthly food cost for one colony cat is approximately $18, being fed once daily for the River View Park/marina colonies. Our volunteers spend about $4,000 to $5,000 per year to feed 40+ cats along our public waterfront.

Our donation web page is www.deltaviewcats.org.

Volunteer:  Join us and help make a difference! It’s exciting and rewarding!

CONTACT MOM L AT: INFOPDVC AT GMAIL DOT COM

You don’t need to live here!! We are desperate for volunteers who are familiar with Face Book and Instagram to help us keep our social media channels filled with fun stories, interesting cat facts. We have tons of photos and will share with qualified social media users.

There you have it!! We sure do hope some of my readers are willing to join us “purr-tually” and agree to become contributors, editors for our Face Book and Instagram social media network.

We are gonna ROCK HUMANE COMMUNITY CAT MANAGEMENT EDUCATION AND SERVICE with youR support and real time help!!! Let’s teach the community cat rescue world how to save them all through partnerships!!

Friday Memes for Friday Smiles

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

What a pleasure to be back with all of you again. We have lots of news about what Mom L and Dad P and I have been up to over the last year or so, but I will save that for another post. But trust me, you are so gonna luvluvluv Project Delta View Cats mission and accomplishments!!

But—on to my Friday Memes. So I consulted with TKS and we thought we could both provide you with your Friday Smiles without bringing in other cats that Mom L and Dad P are caring for.

Take it away TKS!!!

What more can I say. That is just what TKS is like UNTIL she hears the treat bag rattle or Dad P opens the morning brekkies can.

I on the other paw, have far more serious things to ponder and ask you to share with me. What would YOU do if you saw what I saw???

Let me know if  comments how you would feel seeing what I saw!!!

And of course I had to trade with TKS to get my one meme posted, so she gets a second one.

TKS learned that being away from home is not always what it is celebrated as. Mom L dreamed of travelling all over the world and then she had a job that did mean she traveled a lot. Now, click forward ten years, and she is like The Kid Sage—home is better than using someone else’s pillow. MOL!!!

Let me hear our shout outs in comments if I helped you get your Friday Smile On!

pEEeSS—Foster Kit Katie has another medical struggle going on with her right eye. She has both calicivirus  and microplasma in her right eye. Her immune system was terrible compromised given her five months from birth to rescue in a cat hoarding apartment last year. Please send your healing purrs to our sweet foster Kit Katie. Her health conditions continue to challenge her ability to find a forever home.
