Forever Friday with Casper and girls

Since we have a lot of white cats we thought we would feature some white beauties this week from Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. They are the no-kill shelter that was in financial need a few weeks back. Thanks to all who helped them out, they are doing better now and hoping to raise awareness of the importance of no-kill shelters.



This is Casper who was rescued from the local animal shelter. He is one and one half years old and a very handsome white mancat. He was pretty scruffy looking when he was brought into Brother Wolf's care, but he's feeling better every day. Email bwarcatteam@gmail.com if you'd like to meet him!




This is Rose who is a young playful white kitty who needs a forever home. There are two others her age and all white - Blanche and Dorothy. Please help hem find someone that will give them love and a caring home.

For more info on all these cats and more please visit Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. Pass the word on to others and make sure your Congress members know that you want your community to be no-kill. For more info on creating a no-kill community go to Maddie's Fund or No Kill Nation on Facebook.

Christmas in July!



We got a package in the mail for us over the weekend from Angel, Kirby and Mac. We joined in with the Christmas in July fun this year and they were partnered with us. What a cute Christmas card from them and all the goodies were wrapped in red and green paper!



Ivy inspected the box while Mom opened it up for us. Look -- we got cute kitty magnets and Hello Kitty band-aids for the beans.



There was lots of treats - all our favorite - Temptations ...in all our best flavors. Sweetpea called first dibs on those.



Joey got so excited he just got in the box and wanted all of the rest for himself! Mom made him get out so we could open more gifts.



Sweetpea is checking out the furry mouse. Doesn't that look fun? Minnie liked the paper better than all the stuff and was rolling around in it. She found the catnip toy - no wonder the paper smelled so good to her!





Since we have two groups of kitties, Mom closed up the rest of the box and took it out to the white cats to have fun with. Two Spot and Only jumped right in the box and began to check it all out. More treats and even some catnip which Mom let us have after we got done.





Wow we got a Kong kicking toy - that will be fun to practise our bunny kicks on. More catnip toys and a bunch of mousies! Smidge joined in on the unwrapping. The rest of the gang was too sleepy to come down and have fun!



Lily joined in and grabbed the catnip toys. We got a kitty cube too. They even sent some bath stuff for Mom -wasn't that nice of them?





We had a great time opening it all and will enjoy playing with all the great toys. The treats will keep us going for a long time! Mom likes the bath stuff - don't know why beans like to get wet!
We hope Angel, Kirby and Mac enjoy their stuff - we are new at this Christmas in July thing. We thank them and their Mom for all the hard work and thoughtfulness put into our box!

Hope you all have a great time watching this. Thinking about Christmas now...maybe this will bring us some cooler temps - it is still HOT HERE!!!!!
For more kitties today visit Gattina for Cats on Tuesday!

Forever Friday Recap



Clubber was featured in early June and is still up for adoption. He is a big senior cat, all black and has 6 toes, thus the name. He would be the perfect companion for a quiet, calm household. For more info on how to adopt him or to see more cats needing forever homes..visit Animal Compassion Network in Asheville, NC.




This lovely cat is Shadow, a 1 year old Maine Coon mix neutered male from the Avery County Humane Shelter in Newland, NC. He has been adopted but keeps coming back to the shelter due to the owners moving etc.




Big Boy, is another older cat and a big guy. He needs a home and lots of action. He had a home but his owners fell on hard times and had to give him up. Click on Catman2, the no-kill shelter in Cullowhee, NC he lives in, to see more of Big Boy and the other cats available for adoption.





Bella is an all black large female who is also about 3 years old. Given that black cats do not get adopted as readily as other colors we hope Bella finds a forever home soon. She is at the Asheville Humane Society in NC.



Tina is very people friendly, two years old and has been here at the Watauga Humane Shelter since December 2008.





This beautiful sweet guy was adopted from the shelter as a kitten and just recently ended up in a shelter in Charleston, SC. Peace is an amazing cat and would fit into any family. He is 2 years old and long haired. More info on adopting Tina and Peace can be found online at the Watauga Humane Society.

Since Mom started Forever Friday, three cats out of nine have been adopted - let's get these guys forever homes! Pass the word on and link to this post!

Thanks for all your get well wishes for Mom - she is hanging in there and going to a specialist in another week. She is still trying to catch up on her visiting!

Forever Friday with Tina and Peace

Today we are visiting an animal shelter in the High Country near Boone, NC. The Watauga Humane Society is a low kill shelter with both dogs and cats.



Someone saw a car slow down and toss Tina out the car window. Tina is very people friendly despite her experience. Tina is two and has been here at the Watauga Humane Shelter since December 2008. Here she is posing pretty in the cats room. Please help find her a forever home!


This beautiful sweet guy was adopted from the shelter as a kitten and just recently ended up in a shelter in Charleston, SC. His owner was contacted and did not want Peace back so one of the shelter employees went to Charleston and got him. Peace is an amazing cat and would fit into any family. He is 2 years old and long haired. Please help find him a forever home by re posting this everywhere!

More info on adopting these two great cats can be found online at the Watauga Humane Society.

UPDATE - Bella from last week's Forever Friday is still at the shelter. Franzia, featured a few weeks back, from Brother Wolf Rescue was adopted! The other cats Clubber and Big Boy are still available - just search for Forever Friday on this blog to see their posts.

URGENT - Our only no-kill shelter - Brother Wolf Rescue is having severe financial problems. They are determined not to close no matter what it takes but they need help. Please help in any way you can. Every town needs a no-kill shelter! (The local paper did an article on them and helped raise awareness of their situation - things look better but they still need help. Please read the letter on their home page from the Executive Director thanking all who have donated so far.)

Thanks for helping us help homeless pets!

Wordless Wednesday





Join us for more Wordless Wednesday!

PS Chica had her 19th birthday on 6/24/10 - CB posted it again today by mistake!

Tortie Tuesday



Hi everybody...Chica here today. I just want to set the record straight about me. I may be 19 but I still get around. I don't sleep all day as most of you might think! I love to play with my egg in the bed with Mom.



I keep Tabitha company and help her clean herself. She is still lonely being the last one to come inside. I think she misses her momcat.



I help Mom with the computer. I sit in her lap sometimes when she is working and help with the keyboard or I just snoopervise from the desk top. I like to lick her hands when she is typing (which drives her nuts) heeheehee.





I love to play and go to our toy box and pick out my favorite toy to play with. I like my mousy and the little jingle balls best.

So you see I live quite an active life for my age. I also like to watch the goats across the street and keep an eye on things outside.

Have a great day and please visit Gattina for Cats on Tuesday. Oh and Mom wants to thank you all for the nice comments on our blog's new look!

Name Game


We are a little late but thought we would join in on this fun game of how we got our names. Or at least some of us......



Chica was found while we lived in Florida in a town with a large migrant population so we thought a Spanish name was more appreciate. We named her chica for "little girl". We also call her Cheeky and Cheek.

Yoko came next and she had a loud whiny meow and talked constantly. It sounded a lot like Yoko Ono singing...so the name Yoko came to mind. Yoko also is called Yokie, Yokie Doke and Yoke.

Ivy was the first of our feral cats to get named. Since she lived outside I guess Mom was thinking plant names. Fern was another name she considered but Ivy seemed right. We call her Ive or Ivy do too.

The first feral litter was four kittens - 3 black and 1 tabby. Mom named Joey the tabby after Joey Tribiani on the show Friends cuz Joe was a ladies mancat. Two black kittens had big ears like Micky and Minnie Mouse - so Minnie got her name but Micky got changed to Nicky after he was TNR'd and they nicked his ear. Little Leroy was named after Pop's dog from years ago but Leroy disappeared at 6 months and we never found him or saw him again. Nicky went to the Bridge from cancer when he was 6.


Darby was caught on St. Patrick's day and Mom thought she was a boy so had named her a nice Irish name like Darby - we kept the name anyway. Darby gets called Dabba do after the Flintstones.


Sweetpea was so tiny as a kitten and still is at 5 pounds that Mom was calling her sweetie even from the beginning. Sweetpea seemed close enough to sweetie for her name. We also call her Sweepy.




This is going to be along post...we gotta lotta cats..do want us to keep going? OK...we will.


Mamacita showed up outside with 2 tiny kittens even tho she was almost a kitten herself. We went for the Spanish names again with Mamacita meaning "little mom" and Rosa and Manny for the two kittens. Manny went to the Bridge from a bladder blockage at age 2.




Al was named after Albert Einstein cuz his long white fur was sticking up everywhere as a kitten! We also cal him Ally Boo, or Ally B - even tho he can't hear us!




Now we come to the white cats.....that was a challenge and by now Mom was running out of name ideas. Lily and her kitten Snowball were first - Mom was trying for names about white things. Pretty obvious. Lily gets called Lil lil or just Lil.


Lily's second litter was 3 white and 1 tabby. We couldn't tell them apart so someone suggested George, George and George like George Foreman's kids! Mom liked that idea but Pop didn't, so Georgie, a girl got to keep the George part and the other 3 boys got named Norm, Woody and Sam from the TV show Cheers.


The next litter before we finally caught and spayed the ever elusive Lily was also 3 white and 1 tabby! The tabby is Tabitha - cuz she is a tabby! The white ones all had a thumb print of black fur on their foreheads - Two Spot had two spots, Only had one spot and Smidge just had a smidge of a black spot on her. The spots eventually faded away so now people wonder what their names mean but Mom thought it would help her tell who is who! So much for that idea!



And we might as well do Mom too - she was named after a radio show about a tugboat named Cherylann - with the ch sound like in cherry. She never really liked her name so changed it a lot to Cheri, Cher and finally just Cheryl.

Hope you didn't fall asleep during this...have a restful day! Time for a nap now!

Forever Friday - Bella and Creamsicle

Both of these cats are from the Asheville Humane Society in Asheville, NC and are available for adoption. (Click on the shelter name for more info) This shelter is not a no-kill shelter so we would like to put their names and pictures out to blog world in hopes of finding them a home





Creamsicle is a large male neutered boy who is about 3 years old. He is a lovely buff colored tabby cat.



Bella is an all black large female who is also about 3 years old. Given that black cats do not get adopted as readily as other colors we hope Bella finds a forever home soon.

We also want to let you all know that Beatrice - the cow cat from a few weeks back was adopted from the Asheville Humane Society! Isn't that great????

We may or may not have aided in that but let's do it again for these two - spread the word on Facebook, Twitter...anyplace to help them find a loving home.
