Monday Meowsie News

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

My Meowsie News is all about the kindness and generosity of humans who truly care about helping deliver humane management and care to our abandoned community cats. This is about Cookie.

My our Delta View Cats nonprofit may be small, but we can sure pull off some darn good fundraising to help an adult abandoned community cat get his mouth back so’s he can eat without crying!!!

Mom L received a call from a lady we have helped before, Miss Melissa. She has been feeding an adult cat she named Cookie for a few years and saw that he was drooling a lot and could not eat the food. We loaned her a trap and then transported Cookie to our county’s  animal services medical team. They assessed Cookie and learned he needed excessive dental care which they do not provide.

Oh my!!! My Our little nonprofit doesn’t have a very well funded emergency medical fund. But we were determined to make sure that Cookie got his chompers back to being comfy!!!

We posted on our Facebook page all about Cookie. And within couple of days we raised enough funds ($2,000 USD) to pay for Cookie’s Chompers!!! Please, if you follow my blog, please, please follow my our nonprofit’s Facebook page! We have such generous and loyal followers and we really need about a kabillion more followers!!

Cookie is doing very well being inside and loved. In fact, Cookie has decided that he may just really like being an inside kitty forever!! Who knew!! This darling boy has been head butting his caretaker, Miss Melissa and even her three year old son. Cookie is finally able to show off his REAL SELF!!!

That’s my Monday Meowsie News. Hope you loved it!!

Busy, busy—not my favorite word!

 HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I missed doing my Friday Memes post last week ‘cuz Mom L was busy, busy, busy with a bunch of community cat rescue stuff. I know, I know, this is impawtant work for me too but golly gee whiz! I really like making up my memes!! So how’s it goin’ at your castle? Are your humans always busy, busy, busy???

So here’s one example. We loaned a trap to a nice woman who needs to trap a semi-friendly young adult kitty who she is feeding in her backyard. She calls him “Pi” like in “pirate” ‘cuz he has one eye that is not right. Anywho; she made a neuter appointment for him so Mom L and I loaned her a trap. She has even bought a very nice outdoor shelter for Pi and she really loves him!

Sadly, as you can see in the photos Pi has a serious issue with his right eye. The Vet will do what he can when he gets neutered this coming Friday; but Pi may lose that eye. I will let you know next Monday if I can.

Then we helped trap another backyard kitty that has been suffering with pain and discomfort in his mouth. He has been drooling and crying when he tries to eat; especially hard food. He does much better with soft food. So we helped the caretaker trap him and get him to our county animal shelter for diagnosis and hopefully treatment. Unfortunately, he needs a very expensive dental due to severe gingivitis and stomatitis. He needs most of his toofies extracted and our county shelter has the dental equipment, but they do not have Vet time to do the work. His caretaker, Miss Melissa, calls him Cookie! So we got Cookie set up at her home inside in a 36 inch cage so he can wait comfortably until we can get him into a Vet hospital for his dental and extractions. He goes in this week on Wednesday and we already know that the cost will exceed our Delta View Cats Emergency Medical Fund. Soooo—Mom L is busy, busy getting some fundraising started online. If you wanna help Cookie’s mouth get all better, you can donate on our website at http://www.deltaviewcats.org. Or on our Facebook page. Just note “for Cookie’s toofies”. https://www.facebook.com/deltaviewcats

He’s a real cutie, isn’t he? The shelter gave his caretaker some pain meds to put in his food until we can get him his dental.

And of course Mom L and Dad P have been busy, busy, busy trying to get all five of our foster kittens adopted. Tiffany is about eight months old and she is very good at adoptions; although she does nap her way through most of the time!! MOL!!

The kittens are often split up into two cages. You can see Laughing Samantha and her sister Jessie James cuddling together for a nap. And then one time Laughing Samantha was with her brother The Domino Kid. We set them up so Tiffany can be in a cage between or next to them.

Of course what would kitten season be without Dad P finding a mom cat and four kittens in the back patio of the vacant rental next-door to us!! So far, our trapping efforts have been wins for the mom cat and kittens and mostly losses for Mom L. She did trap one kitten and one of our Delta View Cats volunteers, Miss Jennifer, is fostering it. The kittens are about 5 weeks old.

We also have a sweet black juvenile kitty in a cage that Mom L trapped last night when she was trying to catch more kittens. This kitty will be spayed this week then released. As you can see, there are no dull moments around my castle right now. What’s up with all of you!!

Dual personality

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Now everyone be very honest with me. Do any of you have any kitteh(s) in your own home that appear to have more than one personality?? This is a serious question my pals. Ya see, one of my foster kittens is exhibiting extreme dual personality issues and I am worried that this is gonna get in her way of finding her own home. I mean, seriously! No way do I want one of these little pesky kittens havin’ to take up permanent residence here in my castle, ya know what I mean?????

How can one kitten, with one personality go from this—

—To this! In about fifteen minutes!!!

It’s dual personality, right??!!! Sure hope it isn’t contagious ‘cuz the other three are startin’ to show the same signs!
