6-7-10 – Cats who need help, the Bookworms & the Rescuees.

Jump to comments

I’m taking the rest of the week off from blogging. EVERYTHING IS FINE, I just need a week to catch up on stuff around here. Or be lazy. One or the other. ๐Ÿ™‚


Some links for you to check out if you’re in the mood to help some poor kitties. I was going to say that the need is strong this time of year, but honestly the need is strong all times of year.

The sweet kitty with the eye issue in NC still needs a home.

There are three cats here in North Alabama whose owner died and are desperately in need of a home. Theyโ€™re scaredy-cats and will take some time, love, and lots of attention – go read about them here.

SNAP is trying to raise funds to spay and neuter a family of bobtail cats.

Last but certainly not least, meet Hope. Thereโ€™s so much to sweet Hopeโ€™s story that I could never summarize it in a few sentences, so Iโ€™m going to just link to her Facebook page and encourage you to go read about this sweet girl yourself. Edited to add: Does this link work for everyone? If not, please let me know!


Are they not the happiest little monkeys?

Reacher’s eyeliner looks particularly dramatic in this light, no?

Well of course, Bolitar. There are 300 cat beds scattered in various locations through the house, so naturally you’ll want to curl up on the dirty door mat by the back door. (Bolitar loves to watch the other cats come in and go out the cat door, but has never once attempted to go out that door himself. UNLIKE HIS BAD BROTHER.)


“What’s OVER THERE?”

Such nosy little brats.


Remember how just a couple of weeks ago we were worried because Sheila was clearly not feeling well and she’d lost a few ounces and was at just over a pound? Well, the little miss rallied. Last night she weighed in at just a smidge over two pounds! The boys all weigh well over two pounds, so they’ll be going soon to be spayed and neutered (I’ll give it another week so that Sheila’s not quite so close to the two-pound mark. My scale’s good, but it doesn’t always agree with the vet’s scale. Just like my personal scale doesn’t agree with the doctor’s scale!)

They love this hammock on the cat tree. One of them is always in it when I walk into the room.


“I’m smarter than he is. I’ll take no tutoring, thank you.”

“Tutoring…. Hm.”

“I am highly suspicious that you could possibly teach me anything. But I HAVE always wanted to become an Astrophysicist!”


“What? Just hanging out waiting for Jake to come along so I can knock him down and chew on his neck. That’s all, nothing to see, move along now.”


2009: No entry.
2008: No entry.
2007: Guess what? New fosters!
2006: No entry.
2005: When will these little monsters let me snuggle them?

  1. Have a great week off and enjoy!!

    Thanks for these fab pics of the ever so cheeky Bookworms and gorgeous Rescuees and the ever so funny Permanent Residents.

    I hope all the kitties looking for homes find them! I would love to take Kitty from NC (she with the poor eye!! Awwww) if only I didn’t live across the ocean!

    Take care

  2. Thanks for the PSAs, Robyn, and have a great week. Relax, and don’t forget to pat the D-O-G-S!!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Well, I totally understand about taking time off – that is why I don’t really do much blogging on the weekends.

    I hope that all the kitties that need homes will find them – there seem to be a lot of them lately! But hopefully they will find a great home of their own!

    And everyone is adorable as always – I understand about the nosyness of kittens because my newbies are starting the “what is in here” thing too.

    Have a good week off!!

  4. I totally understand about bloggy breaks – I am on hiatus myself, while I move from NC to TX (the wagon heads West on Wednesday).

    Just a quick question though – how long will you be fostering t he bookworms? Just curious. They are super cute and I am sure they will be adopted in a snap.

  5. Every time I try that Facebook link, it bumps me to the FB homepage, which I’m sure isn’t what you intended. Could you look into it?

  6. Nichole: They’ll be staying ’til about mid-July, I believe. ๐Ÿ™‚

    MouseK: I’ll see what I can do. I think it might be due to the fact that you’re in the UK – the other two people who are unable to see the page are also in the UK. I’m not sure why it would be set up that way, though. I’ll contact the person who runs the Facebook page and see if she has any ideas.

  7. @admin: I can’t get to the FB link either (and I’m in Canada). Not sure why I can’t, but I don’t know that it has to do with being outside the US. Maybe something’s just a bit hinky with the link? I also tried searching, but came up with way too many hits to find it.

  8. Alyssa: Well, that clears that part up, at least. ๐Ÿ™‚ For the life of me, I can’t figure out a direct link. I’ll keep trying, though, and update the link when I can!

  9. OMG…a week without the cuteness updated every day?? going to go into withdrawal…
    no, honestly, everybody needs a break sometimes, so hope you enjoy it, and I’ll just have to manage by reading older posts, right?
    Have fun!

  10. Okay, one last try – does this one work? If it doesn’t, I’m not sure where to go from there. ๐Ÿ™
