    No Issues-Just wanted to say Hi to any old-timers

    I’m sitting here at my desk thinking about all the hours I put in years and years ago to these forums. I had to figure out how old one of my cats Baker is and instead of going upstairs and piling through files, I came here and did a quick search and found out immediately. So I didn’t want to...

    Cat With Ocd

    Hey Guys, My love and greetings to those of you who actually remember me and know who I am. I have been absent a long time but still rescuing abused/neglected cats. Our latest challenge at the sanctuary is a cat we called Trip long before we knew that he had issues. He and his brothers and...

    With time running out-

    Recently found out that the vet clinic we work with at the sanctuary is being sold. The vet debt is quite high and we now remain $375.00 off the mark. It is required we raise this money in two weeks time. For those of you who do not know me, I left this forum years ago (a place I truly thought...

    Just wanted to drop in and share

    The woman who has these cards recently adopted from us a kitten in need. I was introduced to her beautiful cards and am just spreading the word among animal lovers. It is hard to find good quality cat cards anymore and these would make great Christmas or Thank You cards! Woof-Gang

    He never had a chance

    I met him for the first time two days ago. He was only 8 months old, this Russian Blue tomcat. He had been found by a cleaning company in a house vacated two weeks ago. They knew something was wrong and they called me. One look into the carrier where he had been placed and I beat feet to the...

    "Kumbulu" aka Tania

    First off, I know that she isn't a cat. But back in the day (and the old-timers will attest to this) she was one of the integral parts of this forum machine who saved many a kitten with her sage advice. She was also my Internet partner for years and we came together to create an article for this...

    The tears fall in such unexpected places; on line at the bank waiting to make a deposit. In the cat food aisle when I see his favorite cat treats and remember how he fought to get that plastic bag out of my hands so he could be “treated.” I remember the first day I ever encountered him. In true...

    Marketing Black Kitties

    It's a well known fact that black cats and kittens are often overlooked in rescue homes and shelters. People generally gravitate towards the more colorful kittens even though black is the primary color of all colors. After being asked for the umpty dozenth time "If I had kittens of color." I...

    Any old timers lurking? Newbies welcomed to read as well- :)

    Some of you may not know me or know of me. I am one of the oldies here and I don't post much any more. Life has pulled me in other directions, but I am still strongly in love with and caring for multiple strays and ferals. I socialize them and try to find them homes but the pool is quickly...

No other symptoms showing of an internal bleed- the kitten is 7 months old-has pronounced third eyelids- fever (highest was 105.9 last night) heavy...

    I found you alone in front of the post office and popped you in my purse. Little did I know that you were a special delivery straight to Pop's heart and you left your stamp on mine as well. Such a fragile being crawling with fleas- yet you didn't resist the baths and the treatments to get rid...
