T.G.I.F. The Goblins plus Bailey Too



Happy Halloween everyone!  We didn’t have time to do anything new or exciting for Halloween this year.  Instead, I thought I’d take a stroll down memory lane with my costumes from the past.  That, as it happens, is my T.G.I.F. for today, The Goblins In Flashback!  No photoshop here, I actually wore these things.

Thankful Thursday: Feral-TV Up Close and Purrsonal



Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!

I’m looking out the window, the one in the bedroom that has somewhat of a view of the backyard. I can’t really say it’s a good view because there is a big old bush out there.  I can see part of the backyard and part of the back deck where the feral feeding station is located.

Every once in a while I get a big surprise and Feral-TV comes to me.  I mean really comes to me.  You see, right outside this window is the thing Dad used to ride around on and mash the grass down.  He doesn’t ride it any more, he’s way to old for all that work.  That ridey thing has a cover on it, which really needs replaced.  Anyways, I was at my lookout post here in the window and what to my wandering eyes did appear?  Yep, Momma Kitty and Kitten Zippy.  My Mom grabbed her cell phone and even though the window screen shows up you still get the idea of the Feral-TV.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!This is Momma Kitty and she is very sweet and a very good Momma to her two kittens, Zippy and Zorro.  Doesn’t she have a sweet face?  Dad and Mom would sure like to help her but boy oh boy is she a shy one.

Brian's Home, adopt cats, we deserve it!This is Kitten Zippy.  We actually don’t know if Zippy is a boy or a girl, but if Zippy is a girl we can call her Zippi.  Zippy and Zorro look so much alike you have to see them face on in order to tell who is who.  Zippy is very shy too but is getting a little bit closer to Dad these days.  Not quite in grabbing range yet, but darn close.

So today, I sure am thankful for Feral-TV and I am even more thankful that the ferals show up regularly for meals and that Zippy and Zorro know to go in the heated feral house to keep warm.

Womancat Wednesday with Sister Sascha and Sister Gracie



A quick message to our friends who are not on Facebook:  Monday evening Sister Zoe got worse, lots worse.  Dad took her to the emergency center where she had x-rays, blood tests and a urinalysis done.  Sister Zoe has diabetes, which would explain a lot.  She is still in the hospital.  However, the good news is that she ate good on her own yesterday, which hasn’t happened in a long time.  They are working on getting her insulin regulated.

Opt to Adopt: Special Needs Kitties Freddie, Zazoo and Peanut Need a Northern California Home



This is a special Paw It Forward Post from our dear friend Savannah at Savannah’s Paw Tracks:

These three kittens were all trapped from a mom cat who likely had pan leukopenia while the kittens were in her womb.  Unfortunately, there was a fourth kitten they could never trap.  They have cerebellar hypoplasia (CH), commonly called ‘weeble wobble’ kittens.

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a disorder where the cerebellum of the brain has not fully formed. There are various causes such as bacterial or viral infections, feline pan leukopenia, caused by feline parvovirus, but can also be caused by poisoning, injury or malnutrition.  Some common symptoms are jerky movement, wobbly uncoordinated walking and head bobbing.

There is no cure for CH, it doesn’t get better but it doesn’t get worse.  A kitten will learn to compensate for his/her condition and have a normal lifespan.

Here are the sweeties:

Adopt Freddie!

This is Freddie.  Freddie is a handsome short haired white kitten with black patches and an elegant narrow face, pink nose, delightfully long pink and white ears that go with his long legs.

Freddie is a complete love – he adores attention, being picked up and delights in being stroked and will rub against your legs.  He is quite social with cats and people alike – he loves to play, wrestle, chase and cuddle with his siblings and the other kittens in the house. Freddie has mild cerebella hypoplasia (CH) which means though he falls, he can walk, run, scamper, and even climb up part way and sit on a low level of the kitty condo.

Adopt Zazoo! Say howdy to Zazoo.  Zazoo is a grey & black short haired tiger striped kitten with big green expressive eyes and white paws. She wobbles when she walks, falls a lot, and struggles to climb.  But she is essentially a happy, healthy kitten and knows how to use the litter box.  She is super sweet and loves to be pet and held.  She purrs often. Despite her balance challenges, she is a determined, curious and brave kitten, who likes to explore new places and gets back up when she falls. She will even position herself close to our border collie and watch him play.  She has an independent streak and can entertain herself cheerfully.  She loves to chase, wrestle and cuddle with her brother and sister.

Adopt Peanut! This is sweetie girl Peanut.  Peanut is a petite kitten with an exquisitely delicate face and double dotted nose.  She will watch the activity around her quite intently—sitting quietly and then venture out to be with the others.  Though she looks serious, she plays with vigor; stalking and jumping, running and wrestling and of course cuddling.  Peanut is very gentle and sweet.  Along with her siblings, Zazoo and Freddie, she has CH (cerebella hypoplasia), which means the balance center of the brain is not completely developed so she falls often.  Peanut is healthy and will live a normal lifespan. Peanut would like to be adopted with her brother Freddie or sister Zazoo. Peanut is blossoming more every day.

These kittens are in Northern California.  As much as everyone would like to have these kittens be able to go anywhere in the USA…that is not possible. It is not easy for them to travel long distances and so we must limit their search for new forever homes to the area of Northern California.
