Laser Image

Thanks for checking in. Laser is in the bag below and the pic after that is both Laser and Leah taking up the whole couch. Laser is fine. We had multiple X-rays and exams and a few specialists weigh in. There does not appear to be anything wrong. He bounces back and forth between lame and not lame. It is likely some type of birth defect. Regardless, he is a happy kitty and functions just fine.


Coby Image


Coby is just fine.  

He has developed a great many rituals (patterns of behaviour) which our new foster, Kyla, has disrupted.  And in a good way, I think.  He shares his food and water readily - as Kyla really needs the nourishment.  She's just skin and bone.

From the very beginning, Coby showed an enlightened understanding of our 3 dogs. The biggest dog is blind and Coby seemed to know her vulnerability.  He never took a swat at her or hissed or anything.

The other 2 are dumbasses.  Coby made the appropriate posturings.

Coby is a sweetie and a keeper.

We renamed Niko to Charlie.  He is a rascal...a lot of fun!  He is loved dearly by all!  Thank you for all you do!  Charlie has been a real gift to our family.



Rocket Image

He's doing great ! Getting along with our other kitties. He's still really active - loves to run and jump:). We took him for his neuter and shots.

I promised that I would give you an update.  Week one has been great, and we just love this little fella.  He has adapted very well to his new home and wants so badly to be best friends with our cat Sadie.  Sadie (4 years old), is very good with him and tolerates the kitten behavior extremely well.  They are very sweet as Oscar follows her around and is like a little shadow sometimes.  We have had a few issues with his introduction to our dog Maggie (large husky cross).  Maggie is so excited and interested in the kitten, wagging her tail and crying.   But.......Oscar was two lbs of angry kitten.  Ears back, swatting and growling.  So we had to limit their interaction.  We put Maggie on a leash and let Oscar roam freely so he felt in control and had an escape route.  Last night finally I think we are all living in harmony (with supervision of course).  They were all free to wander the house and Oscar was much better with the dog.  I think we are over the worst of it.  We will not leave them alone though until Oscar is much bigger.  He is eating well and is a bundle of energy!

Anyhow, we love him, he is so funny to watch and scoots around at such speed and dexterity.  We have an appointment with the vet tomorrow for his check up.  Thanks for your work in fostering these adorable animals.  Oscar certainly has found his forever home!!



Daisy  Image

We are well, as are Daisy and Dutch--the dames that rule the house. My daughter continues to be in love with her furry friends, and she and I tend to share their care. Daisy is an interesting pet--she has remained somewhat skittish and can be a bit of a diva, but she purrs in response to the least bit of attention, and at heart, she is affectionate and likes to be around her people. She simply doesn't want to share space on the couch or bed--or anywhere, really--with our little dog. They tolerate each other just fine, but they're not interested in being good friends. :)


Silicy (now Lucy)

We are doing great! She's doing really well; she is such a sweet, nice cat who loves to spend her time on my lap.  She's a great cat to have around. Very well behaved and loves to play with her toys (sparkle balls are her favourite) or look outside or nap in her favourite spots. I think she's very happy here. I am very happy to have her in my house. She adds so much to it. :)

Fred and I are good both getting older and both seem to have more aches and pains but otherwise just fine. Have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.
