The Forgotten Felines Auction page is currently taking raffle entries for Mary Long’s gorgeous quilt. Here’s a video to show the quilt more in detail… we had some little helpers to demonstrate that this beautiful quilt has many uses. You can use it on your bed, as a quilt… BUT ALSO it can be used as a kitten wrestling mat! Really, the possibilities are endless. (Thank you to Porthos, Rochefort and Athos for their help.)
Proceeds benefit enhancements to Forgotten Felines of Huntsville’s Isolation Kennels already in use, which house kitties who need to be isolated due to medical needs, or who have just joined Forgotten Felines and need a few days of isolation before joining the other kitties in rescue.
To enter, send $5 PER ENTRY (you can enter as many times as you’d like) via PayPal “sending to a friend” option to forgottenfelineshsv (at) yahoo.com. Include a note specifying “quilt raffle” and we’ll add your name to the bucket (one entry per $5 sent). The drawing takes place (we’ll be live-streaming it on the Facebook auction page) Saturday (September 12th) around 7:15 CST, and then we’ll contact the winner to arrange delivery. (Shipping is free if you’re not in the Huntsville, Alabama area.)
Surprise – D’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos AND Rochefort were neutered yesterday! (You may or may not remember that Aramis was neutered a couple of weeks ago along with Winter and Planchet.) I didn’t mention it in yesterday’s post because I didn’t get word ’til late Monday that there’d be room for them. We still have to wait for Constance (who is being adopted together with Rochefort) to put on some more weight before she can be spayed, but I figured that since Rochefort was just under 3 pounds, we might as well get his neutering done and over with. They handled it well, neuters always go pretty quickly, we were home a little after noon, and by bedtime they were completely back to normal. So basically we’re just waiting for the right people to come along for d’Artagnan, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, and in the meantime we get to enjoy them!
Fred reported that Constance and Aramis were pretty vocal right after I left with the boys, and then spent the morning playing and snoozing together.
Look at the serious face on Constance! (PS: That bed, which several people pointed out looks like a pool or hot tub, continues to be awesome AND I hear a rumor that a couple of them will be in the November online auction!)
Aramis watchin’ birds. (We have a ton of hummingbirds right now, and they love to sit in the bush outside the window and keep an eye on the feeder so they can chase each other away from it. Aramis finds them endlessly fascinating – and to be fair, I find them pretty fascinating too!)
Jake in the cat house – a sign of oncoming cooler weather, maybe? (Answer: Nope. Jake will hang out in that house in the dead of summer with the sun blazing down and the humidity so thick you can barely see through it as well as in the middle of winter.)
