ROAR for 2BlindCatsandCrew

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR Day and there are so many cats in need that it is hard to choose. While I was thinking of this post, I read the latest from 2 Blind Cats and Crew. The woman who writes the blog has 2 blind cats and several sighted ones as well. Right now 2 of her cats are under the weather and she needs a little help. As usual, I could only afford $10- someday it will be more. Here is their link if you want to help: http://twoblindcatsandcrew.wordpress.com/2014/10/28/blind-sighted-felines-update-4/ .

Tomorrow is Black Cat Awareness Day and I will be having a little giveaway so please come back.

After 5 photo sessions, I finally got Sammy to pose with his Flash costume. I had made onewith red fabric, but every time I tried to put the mask part on-he bit me, more of a nip. He is usually such a sweetie, but for some reason that really irked him. When I was in Dollar Tree I saw this Ninja hood and figured I could make it work. I just added the flash symbol in foam. 002 003

And a special thank you to Nellie of Cat From Hell, http://catfromhell.wordpress.com/

She was so sweet, she made us 2 and we love them both:15_o_lantern 15AND_o_lantern

Life with 15 Cats

Happy Thrusday everyone! Thank you to everyone who donated to J.Lo, shared her story and porayed- everything helps. We are joining pepismartdog’s Thankful Thursday blog hop: www.PepiSmartDog.com, Thankful Thursday Weekly Blog Hop, pet centricI am thankful that there is such a wonderful community of pet lovers that all help each other out. This time last year, I didn’t even know about all these pet blogs.

Today is behavior day and I thought I would continue to tell you about a typical day with 15 cats. Last week, I told you about breakfast. After breakfast, I wash our dishes and theirs ( not together). Then I do a full litter box change on some of the boxes, I do that every 3 days because we use the plain clay, not the scented or clumping. Then I get a break until noon.

When we have lunch, they do too- first, of course. They actually just get a small bit of dry food to tide them over until 7pm dinner. Lucy and Snowball get to split a small can of Sheba brand though because Lucy is elderly and Snowball doesn’t have many teeth even though she is young. If I am not home, hubby will deal with this and take Lucy to the bathroom.

They are supposed to wait until 7 pm for dinner, but at 3 pm Phoebe begs her dad for a snack.. He always gives her one and when the others hear the containers rattling, they come running. We actually eat our dinner at 6 pm and make them wait- I probably shouldn’t do that because they drive us crazy at dinner especially when chicken is involved.

Somehow they have suckered us into a 10 pm snack as well – exact same one as at noon. And Phoebe will pester me again when I go to bed at 11 or 11:30. I guess we feed them too often, but I try not to make any meal too big. Sammy is the biggest at 20 pounds, but he is a large cat ( should probably weigh 17 though). Have a nice day, I am tired just thinking about my day.

Starting Saturday, I will be posting this year’s costumes: Here are some from a couple years ago: Phoebe is Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz and Stinky was the tin man:

J. Lo is Desperate for Money

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today is ROAR day and once again I wish I could donate more than $10,but I know anything helps as well as spreading the word. Last week I saw a cute kitty that was rescued , but could end up back out on the street. Brian’s Home blog brought this to my attention: http://www.brianshomeblog.com/page/2.

J. Lo is the kitty’s name and despite the name, I think she is adorable and want to help her cause. Here is the link to help if you can afford to, if not, please share-that helps too. http://foreverhomewanted.com/2014/10/09/j-lo-the-cat-needs-help-funding-her-surgeries-and-needs-a-home-greenville-sc/. This poor little girl, and I mean little is full grown at 4 pounds. She had a prolapsed rectum that needed surgery- ouch!

blog11This is Barney, we named her that because she showed up at the barn one day. We had her for 10 years and last year she passed away quickly from liver failure, but we don’t know what caused it. She was a sweet lap cat and we miss her very much. This was her as a cowboy.

Hope you have a nice day everyone!
