Hi friends! Happy middle of the week Wednesday! Are you ready for some updates? Good, grab a coffee, a kitty and snuggle in.
First off, Pannniaaaa! Our sweet girl had a little episode the other day (Wed) during the flash sale. Out of nowhere, she started having difficulties breathing, pacing and just a general ‘not rightness’. After very quick consults, we gave her meds and slowly she improved over the night. Dr. Darcy was nice enough to squeeze her in with Rory on Thursday for a general look over and blood work. After that, Dr. Darcy determined she has Chronic Sinusitis and Chronic Bronchitis. She’s currently being treated with a few meds and seems to be doing well. Yay! Talk about a relief.
Rory went with Pania and had an amputation. And turns out, Rory is a boy!! Whoops. On the upside, he’s doing fantastic from the amputation and was ready to get out and play two days later. Very soon little baby!
Speaking of babies, we took in a lot. The general rule before I would leave on vacation is to not take in new babies….well I might have broke that rule. They just needed help and it’s so hard to turn them away, believe me, I cry when I do.
The first one to come in is a buff boy named Dagda. Oh what a mess he was. He was found on 6/3/22, with a birthday of 5/11/22. A good Samaritan found him roaming around in the country. He came in with terrible ear mites, fleas, a bad right eye and missing his back left leg from the knee down. We have been able to get rid of the fleas and mites and have been doing daily washes on his leg. He is not only surviving but THRIVING. Oh my goodness, he’s the happiest little guy for all he’s been through. And he has the most FFRC-iest tummy to have ever tummied!
Next is Marco. Marco was found on 6/6/22 by the dumpster in the parking lot by our new employee, Katherine. I’m sure he was dumped, and while we definitely do not like that to happen, I’m glad he’s with us. His birthday is 5/19/22 and has the most beautiful brown/black tiger swirls to him. He came in with an URI and bad eye matting. Luckily, with medicines, food and lots of lovies, he’s doing wonderful!
Then we have little Julius. What a sweetie he is! He’s the littlest of the bunch, born 5/21/22. He arrived on 6/8/22 and was found by a couple walking at the reservoir. He had lots of fleas, ticks and lice. He also has an eye infection that luckily is greatly improving with meds. He’s also a brown/black tiger and has the cutest little pre-ear floofs. He’s eating well and learning to play. Its such a joy to watch them grow.
And last but not least, is Bridge and her two babies, Monty and Winter. Bridge is a dilute calico, with a birthday of 8/20/20. Monte is white and gray, while Winter is a dilute calico like her mama. Their birthdays are 5/1/22. They came to us on 6/5/22 from our volunteer, Brandon. They were found in Toledo. They are all doing very well! They had fleas when they arrived, but over all very healthy!
Now on to boxes. Wow, what fun they were! We had boxes on Tuesday and also an impromptu boxes on Saturday. I wanted to help Lynnette out while I was gone, but boy did she still have A LOT! You all just blow us away with your generosity for our rescue and these adorable kitties! Many many thanks to all who sent in stuffs!

Well, that’s about all the updates for today! I’m still in Southern Indiana working a friend’s store while they’re on vacation. I’ll be home very late Friday. I so miss those kitties, way more than I even thought possible. I also realized how very much I miss home and all of you. Thank you for being you, and for caring for our rescued kitties. In friendship ~ Megan and the Cats
