Eliza Brought Back...Three Young Arrivals

Well...Eliza made it quite clear that she does not feel comfortable at PetSmart.  At the Shelter she was sweet and happy.  Perhaps the sensory overload was too much for her.  She did take a while to settle in at the Shelter when she first arrived and we assumed she would be ok.  She does appear to be having an allergic reaction to something - perhaps it's the litter.   Poor girl!  Maybe she was temperamental because she did not feel well.  We shall give her the benefit of the doubt and say that!

So...we did some rearranging to accommodate three new arrivals.  Big Poe will continue to have two cages.  Marylin and Cyrano will share the two cages vacated by Eliza.

The below three youngsters now occupy the big cage.  Although they all came in from the same location we can not be sure which are litter mates.  In early August nine cats and kittens came in from one area.  While at the Shelter these guys spent some time together and some time apart - based on their health and cage availability.  It is not necessary for any of them to be adopted together. They are all somewhere between 5-7 months old. All will acclimate well to a home with other cats, kids or dogs.

Darlene will walk right out of the cage and into your arms!  She hugs! She is so friendly!!

Colby is a purring machine!!  Put him in your arms and you will hear his little engine!
Gouda is the shy one of the three.  She is a pleasant, sweet little girl and is quite playful.  Give her a day or two to warm up!

New Guys Arrive!

So, after two days of soaking and disinfecting a couple of handsome males arrived today - TJ and Jester! Both are friendly males, about three years old and arrived this summer as strays.  Since both of them are a bit bigger they will each get two cages on the bottom tier.  Once they become acclimated we would like to reduce them to sharing three and bring a smaller cat down to occupy one cage.

Tiger left as scheduled from the Shelter with a very excited young lady!! Lacey left today also.  She will be the only cat and living with a nice young couple. The other guys are all doing fine at the Shelter!

Coverage is needed for Tuesday, October 28, AM Cleaning. Otherwise October looks good!

The November schedule was just about complete but due to some unforeseen circumstances that is no longer the case.  Below is the dates that need coverage:
Tuesday, November 4, AM Cleaning
Tuesday, November 11, AM Cleaning
Monday, November 17, AM Cleaning
Tuesday, November 25, AM Cleaning
Wednesday, November 26, AM Cleaning
Thursday, November 27, Thanksgiving - time to be determined - one cleaning

PetSmart will let me know when their employee will be in on Thanksgiving Day to take care of their pets.  Our volunteer will need to go at that time.  If you have availability let me know.  It is always in the morning.

Good Week!!!

We had a good week at PetSmart!  Molly the Diva went home Wednesday night to a wonderful older couple who are thrilled to have her.  They will tell her daily how pretty she is and lavish attention upon her and she will not share them with any other pet!  That will make Miss Molly happy! 

Tiger was taken to the Shelter where he will be picked up in a day or two.  The young woman adopting him was so excited to pick him up on Wednesday and then at the last minute learned she had to wait.  She was devastated!!  Her landlord did approve a cat in her apartment -  however at the last minute he decided he wanted pictures of the apartment taken prior to Tiger's arrival.  He will not be able to come down until today or tomorrow to take the pictures.  Once that is done Tiger will go home.

We do have some interest brewing in Bridget as well.  Hopefully that pans out.  It is someone related to our connection in Connecticut.

So...let me introduce our new arrivals!  They were brought to the store last night.  The pair now in the big cage are a tad scared but will come around. No new divas in this group!

Cyrano and Marilyn are growing up in the Shelter system.  They arrived on January 6 after being in a foster home for almost three months. They are about a year and half old now.  They are affectionate and outgoing and both enjoy a good belly rub! They do love one another and it would be wonderful to see them leave together. They were a tad nervous their first night so make sure you take some time to say hi!

Sir Cyrano
And then there is big Poe.  This poor older fat girl was surrendered to the Shelter following a divorce.  The dog was given away first and then Poe was given to us.  The house was sold and the husband could not take Poe to the place he is renting. She is around 7 or 8 years old and is sweet.  She will do well in a home with other cats, dogs and kids.  She gets two cages because she's a big girl!
Pretty Poe
We are aware that Lanie has a sore on her shoulder blade area and medical staff will go down today to look at it.
