Time to let me know if you want a holiday card, with this year’s featured Shady Cove permanent resident! Go here to Postable, enter your name and address, and your card will be on the way soon. I am happy to send cards to other countries, this is NOT limited to US residents. If you have any problems, drop me an email and I’ll do my best to fix it. I’ll take names and addresses until December 20th.
If you’d like to send me a card as well (never ever required, but always appreciated – I don’t keep track of who does or doesn’t send a card, I promise!), send it to: Robyn Anderson, PO Box 4328, Huntsville, AL 35815 USA.
(PS: If that link doesn’t work for you, or you prefer not to enter your info (I delete your name and address once I’ve downloaded it), you can email me instead.)
Hooray, hooray, Luc was adopted today! He’s headed home… To Maryland! (Luc’s new Mom Becky is BFFs with Mary who adopted Elfie (formerly Margeaux) and Neko (formerly Katriane); in fact, she accompanied Mary to Louisville to pick up Elfie & Neko and road trip home last month. Mary accompanied Becky to Nashville to pick up Luc. ❤️❤️❤️) Happy life, sweet boy!
Fleur is out of her cone now – she’s healing well and not scratching at her incision. However, I did get a couple of cute collars from Amazon that I had to try on her. I don’t see how this one would work on a kitten recovering from surgery because it’s way too big and it’s less lightweight than I thought it would be. It’s certainly cute, though! (You can find it on Amazon; search on “annaeye pet recovery collar”)
This is the other collar I got to try on Fleur just ’cause I thought it would be cute (I posted a pink collar earlier, if you haven’t seen it.) There’s no way on earth this one would work as a surgery recovery collar – it’s huge and she couldn’t even hold her head up (thus the reason Fred is holding her.) But, I mean – how cute is she? (Especially with that glare she’s giving me.) You can find it on Amazon – search for “alfie pet noah recovery collar.”
I would like to take a moment to shout out Jan Brady (pictured), one of my fosters from 2010 who had the distinctive honor of passing the longest tapeworm (at least 12 inches) I had ever seen in my entire fostering experience. 9 years later, I still remember the total awe of seeing that in the litter box. (Jan Brady recovered beautifully and was perfectly healthy when she was adopted out.)
Jan’s sister Cindy has the honor of being the one and only kitten of the 393 cats and kittens we’ve fostered who never had a moment of diarrhea. She had coccidia, giardia and worms (the whole litter did), but her teflon digestive system provided perfect litter box leavings the entire time, and I will always remember her for that. I don’t know where she is these days, but I bet she’s still awesome.
(It’s a page about the kittens we foster. You think there’s not gonna be the occasional mention of poop? Consider yourself lucky I didn’t take a picture of said tapeworm.)
And since we’re Bradying it up this morning, here’s the whole Brady Bunch litter from 2010. 9 years later, I can tell you without double checking that we have Cindy over there on the left, Greg in the back behind her, Peter in the front next to her (DREAMY), Marcia next to Peter with that dab of orange on her forehead, Jan in the way back there, all “Marcia, Marcia, MARCIA!”, and Bobby in the front on the right.
Gabrielle is currently hanging out at Petsmart in Jones Valley here in Huntsville, Alabama. Adoption hours are generally Fridays 6:30 – 8:30 pm and Saturdays noon to 4 pm. If you think she might be just what your home needs, stop by during adoption hours or email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to arrange an alternate time.
4 month old kitten Henri (left) and his chatterbug sister Gabrielle are looking for a home! They both get along well with other cats, are super playful, super-snuggly, and a lot of fun to watch. If you think Henri or Gabrielle (or both!) might be just the thing your home needs, email Forgotten Felines of Huntsville at info (at) ffhsv.org to inquire.
