Cat Hoarding or Overwhelmed???

HIYA!!  MOM L HERE!

I regret having to use that teaser title, but I simply have no time to write the post I need to write and want to write. The last three weeks have been a challenge that Dad P and I never ever thought to experience when we agreed to what seemed a simple “TNR” effort for maybe 8-9 friendly cats abandoned by former residents at a nearby apartment complex.

This kitten will be my place holder for a several part series starting on Brian’s Thankful Thursday if all settles a bit and I have time.

HUMAN HUGS AND SAVANNAH PAW PATS

Returned Again!

HIYA!!  SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well I never! I mean here I go and shout it to the roof tops, or at least to the tops of my internet tower…anyway, I shout it loud and clear that my Paw It Forward kitty Miss Gemma had a Happy Tail Ending. And this was her second adoption.

Remember I told you about her first adopter who allowed one of their dogs to bite her, wait for that bite to get such a horrible abscess Gemma needed a drain and stitches by the time that foolish family returned her to Contra Costa Animal Services.

After she had her stitches out, Gemma was moved to a fab place at Pet Food Express. Remember I showed you how great it was when Koko went there too. The staff loved Gemma and were so excited for her when a couple with a two year old toddling human adopted her. They firmly advised them to set up a safe room just for Gemma where she could get to know every nook and cranny and where they could interact with her OFTEN and calmly and quietly.

Gemma was again returned to Contra Costa Animal Services. Mom L was in tears for precious Gemma!! Long story short, the couple put Gemma in their laundry room where they continued to use those scary noisy machines. Then they let her out at night, and she would of course like any sensible cat hide under a bed. So in all their human wisdom they used the vacuum cleaner to scare her out!!! So they returned her saying she was too shy and needed a more quiet home!! DUH!!!

Pet Food Express welcomed Gemma back with open arms. And guess what? She is such a resilient cat and still trusts humans. Mom L had no problem getting to give Gemma tummy rubs the first time she visited her at Pet Food Express. Gemma has another adult and some kittens to keep her company so Mom L only goes to visit every couple of days. Please wish Gemma better good fortune her third time around. Don’t you just wanna give her a great big squeeze she is so cute!

I love hanging out next to a warm human

Gemma is the biggest purr bug! Look at her snugglin’ next to Mom L’s leg.

Ohhh…I adore you so much I have to make some biscuits!

And Gemma is an equal opportunity cat, so she had no trouble sharing some rubs with Dad P too.

Let me rub my furs on you so’s you remember me

I’d sure be purring up a storm if my readers will share this post to help Gemma find her purrfect family. She deserves a kind, sensitive human family with patience…not to mention brains enough to know how to follow instructions from the adoption counselors!!! If you have any advice I can pass along to Gemma, let me know in comments.

Friday Memes and Happy Tails Ending

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

I know from your comments that you have all enjoyed having me include some of my Paw It Forward project Delta View Cats as subjects for memes. So let me get right to it with my first guest from Project Delta View Cats! Miss Starlight was pulled from the colony by Mom L about 3 weeks ago, I featured her in a blog post.

I guess that post worked ‘cuz Starlight got her wish from that star she was wishing on!!

APAWS   APAWS for Starlight!

Now let me introduce you to the young lady cat who was my house cat guest for a week. Mom L pulled her from the colony ‘cuz she was injured and needed a check up besides Mom L knew she was friendly. Miss Whitey’s injury is mending and she got all her vaccinations and flea treatment at Community Concern 4 Cats clinic for free roaming community cats. I allowed invited her to stay for several days to get her used to being around human household sounds. We had some leaky eyes when Mom L and Dad P took her to animal services to set her on her path to find her family.

As you can see from her photo, she always had to have a chat with Mom L when it was time for her to go back into her “room” aka a forty-two inch cage. Mom L kept her in her office and Whitey got to be out and about when Mom L was with her. She got to taking offense at having to return to her “room”!! MOL!!

Of course you need my very own special meme featuring ME!! Right?

Bet’cha lots of you know that look and use it wisely!! Have a pawsome week’o’end!

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
