Well, it was expected but still sad news…one little gaffer left this earth last night. So tiny. So tired. Free now. The other 3 are still fighting but we wonder who is next.  We grieve, remember that precious little face and then carry on. The pregnant torti that was pulled from Animal Services yesterday was so […]

We are surprised that the URI kittens are still alive. Truly. Grey/white mom was trying her best but the two left – although seemingly in better shape yesterday, were struggling this morning. They were trying to nurse off their mom but to no avail. Lyn took them today to join the other 2 littermates and will try to […]

Momma is reason to give thanks. She is craving affection and hopefully will continue to manga manga and grow stronger. Controlled panic. Tricia peered into the kitten’s crate and saw only 3. One was in the birthing box but where was the other. She searched frantically – must have been a girl scout as she had a […]

Was so relieved to see that the babies were still alive this morning. They were in a pile at the back of the crate so I wondered as I picked up each one. It reminded me of the time when I thought one of my wee foster babies had died. I picked him up and he was […]

Disco is alive and well  – at least in my brain. Awoke with the song “Stayin’ Alive” rattling around, or maybe it was what my girl was shrieking ‘gotta eat -‘stayin alive’ when she sat by my head yelling at me at 5:00 a.m. We spent a few hours yesterday providing care and trying to figure […]

What else can I say…..Just when we think things are going well and can enjoy watching the new little ones grow……a call from caregivers Tricia this morning and then Lyn on the later shift, confirmed that one of the moms in the buffer home, stopped eating. Lyn dashed out to purchase some sardines, returned and gave her a […]

It was a dark and stormy night….not really but didn’t know how to start this blog. It actually was a nice sunny day and pleasant drive, when Bernard had his bandage change last week. Not a peep out of the bewildered little guy as he sat wide eyed in his crate. Picked up some organic […]
