About two weeks ago two super-amazing neighbors messaged me about a kitty living under their apt building. I loaded up a trap & a carrier and went to meet Boss – a grey male Russian Blue. He was friendly, curious but very very skiddish. Spent a day or so winning his trust and when I got a good hold of him he was so strong he wriggled away. Took about another week for the neighbors to coax him into eating inside a cat carrier before they trapped him in. He was NOT HAPPY. Taken to vet – got a bath and a checkup and he’s here at the cat ranch. He is big and strong and beautiful. Super loving guy!
Then I got a message about Blossom. She was the store cat at Alan’s Aquarium for about 10 years and for whatever reason wasn’t going to the new location. She’s a grey Persian with an extra dose of attitude. Doesn’t respond well to other animals so she was hard to adopt out. She has quite a set of pipes on her. She needs some TLC. Trying to arrange for a grooming to get her brushed and her matted hair cleaned up. Will need sedation for sure. Sad when older pets become an inconvenience – but she’s here and is happy. Loves her Whisker Lickin’s and a chin scratch.
Then I got a message on Twitter about little Indiana. Just shy of 10 days old he was abandoned and was hungry as a little bear. Picked him up from a neighbor who had him on Indiana Ave. He’s super sweet – really active and so far looks healthy. Gave him a bath to get the fleas off him and he shined up like a new penny. Currently bottle feeding this guy – and will probably have a camera up streaming him sometime this weekend.
