Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

UPDATE: Remember where foster Katie was found?

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

How many of you remember where our foster Kit Katie was found? Be honest, tell me in comments. This is a trick question kind’a!

Mom L took Kit Katie to an adoption event at Petco on this past Saturday. This adoption site has been filled by our partners for Project Delta View Cats for about twenty years. Community Concern For Cats has made this Petco a major adoption happening! Anyway, Mom L took Kit Katie and met someone who pretty much blew off Mom L’s socks!!! MOL!!!

There was a very pretty, somewhat shy young female kitty at this adoption event. Mom L got to talking with the kitty’s foster Mom and guess what?

Where have you seen this kitten before on my blog?

Kittens still trying to be kittens

Do you think THIS is the same kitten almost one year later?

SQUEEEEEE!!! Mom L met the wonderful lady who fostered FOUR of the kittens from that ugly apartment cat hoarding situation Mom L and Dad P and Miss Stacey worked through last year, June and July 2018!!!. We never knew where the live nine kittens we rescued ended up. But now I can give you a peek at four of them and all have the best ever happy tails endings!!!

The kitten above is names Squeakers. She is just adorable. A bit shy, unlike her brother who was adopted quickly after being rescued. He was about eight to ten week old when adopted. You can see him still in the hoarding apartment and then once he was free with his foster Mom  and Dad. ( you must hover over photo to read captions)

Cooper was the only boy kitten out of the four that Miss Nancy agreed to foster. The other three were as timid as our sweet Kit Katie. Check out the two tabby kitten she fostered, Jimmie and Willa May. Jimmie was apparently the runt of a litter and very tiny and not expected to survive. But Mom L handed him and another weeks older tabby girl off to our trusted partners at Community Concern For Cats. Mom L knew that Miss Gemma could bring Jimmie back to a full life. And she DID!!

Jimmie and Willa May were so bonded. They were not litter mates because we knew Willa May was a few weeks older. But just look at how much they loved each other.

And YES!!! Jimmie and Willa May were adopted together about two weeks ago!! APAWS!!!

Here is a great photo of Willa May, Jimmie and Squeakers.

We must always remember that saving one life always means we are saving so many other when we practice SPAY and NEUTER!! All four of these kittens were the result of someone who didn’t bother to get their mom cat and dad cat spayed and neutered. They were born into a horrible filthy environment just like our foster Kit Katie. Thankfully three of these four kittens are in loving homes and soon we know that Squeakers will be in her own home too.

Hope you find inspiration in seeing the Happy Tails Endings for four of the kittens Mom L and Dad P rescued last Summer from an apartment hoarding situation. Again, this is where we found sweet Kit Katie.

HAPPY TAILS ENDINGS ROCK!!!

Friday Memes and Happy Tails Endings

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

My Friday memes will begin my happy tails ending to a story you have all been following.

A question Mom L and Dad P hoped had “yes” for the answer, as did Katie. Neither of our foster kittens wanted to be without the other. A dilemma when you take foster kittens to an adoption site that doesn’t pay attention to how bonded some pairs are. But Mom L and Dad P were able to get space for both girls at my former shelter home, Contra Costa Humane Society’s Kitty Corner!

And that was certainly NOT Katie’s first thoughts when Mom L and Dad P dropped them off at Kitty Corner. Katie didn’t want to leave her carrier so they left it there for a whole day so she could use it as her safety place.

You can see that Lilly kept returning to Katie’s carrier to make sure Katie was ok. And Lilly kept look out for any potential intruders. But after a few days, Lilly was out and about making new friends.

But precious shy Katie found herself a hidey spot, up high so she could keep her eyes on whatever was going on down below and it was also near the often open door with a screen so she could smell the fresh air. Lilly again checked on her throughout each day and often snuggled in with Katie for her naps.

When Dad P visited he found Katie in her hidey spot and she was grateful for his soft warm touch.

The staff told us that Katie was seen coming out at night to eat some dry food and use the litter box. She would even explore Kitty Corner a bit as well. But as soon as the first staff person opened the door—zip! She was back up in her hidey spot for the day.

The kitties all get some wet food once a day at Kitty Corner and as you can see, Lilly liked to eat her dish on the floor and then dash up to join Katie for her serving!! But, Katie started to eat some wet food when Lilly joined her. Katie is a social eater and prefers to have Lilly share her bowl of food. Katie and Lilly were at Kitty Corner for just two weeks before a very special family arrived, looking for Katie. They saw Katie on Contra Costa Humane Society’s website and the Dad especially fell for her and wanted to meet her. They knew that they could ONLY be adopted together so they were curious to meet Lilly too.

This family has two elementary aged children, both of whom kept their voices calm and quiet while visiting Kitty Corner. Big plus for Katie and Lilly!!! The parents also made sure their two children stroked Lilly and Katie softly from head slowly down to tail.

When the father saw Katie it was love at first sight. He stood next to her and gave her lots of pets. When he stopped, Katie reached her neck out so he could get to her head easier!! She invited him for more pets!!

The Mom and children were loving playing with rambunctious Lilly. After talking for some time with the adoption counselors where they learned of the medical challenges both Lilly and Katie faced and that Katie has juvenile gingivitis, they asked to fill out the adoption application! YES!!

Katie and Lilly have been adopted TOGETHER!!!

Katie above and Lilly below.

Mom L and Dad P both had leaky eyes they were so grateful that Katie and Lilly had found such a truly special family to call their very own. And they do get to live happily ever after together!!

I can’t thank all of you who shared our appeal for help with the unexpected cost of Katie and Lilly’s medical care. Your willingness to help us spread the word and in some cases even donate, mean tons to me and Mom L and Dad P.

Hope you enjoyed my memes and news today.

Monday Meowsie News: Brief update on last week’s rescue

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I’m pleased so many enjoyed learning about how Mom L and her buddy Miss Jeanne trapped mom cat using her kittens as bait! Believe you me, they had a ton of coaching text messages to get them through it!! But now they can both say “been there, done that!!!”

Many of you asked if we were still trying to get the person who lied about being with a legit cat rescue named Kitty 911 (K911) East County. I don’t know if K911 is still trying, but Mom L quit ‘cuz that person wouldn’t ever return her calls once Mom L started asking if she could pick up the two kittens. We don’t know why this person chose to lie to the really nice man on Nextdoor who was asking for help. The person is self reporting to the man that they are being well cared for but then when Mom L talked with them asking them to foster mom cat and the other six kittens, they refused unless they got money for food and medical if needed. So makes us wonder if this person has the ability to care for the kittens long term and get them S/N and vaccinated and adopted. We worry. K911 did report this person by name and phone number to our county animal services. You can find the legit K911 and see all that they do on Facebook here.

These are the only two photos we have of the two kittens the person took. I think that blue thing is a warming disc, at least I sure hope it is.

These were when they were likely less than 5 days old.

Sure would have been great if that person would have given them back to their mom cat. Just look how happy she is once she was reunited with her other six kittens!

One happy furramily

I have lots more to tell you about all the community cat rescue Mom L and Dad P have been doing. But one of those stories is gonna be a long one. Hope you all have the patience to read it in installments!!
