Forever Friday - Big Boy and Winners!

This larger than life boy is from Catman2, a private, no-kill cat-only shelter. Conceived in 1996, Catman2 is managed by Dr. Harold Sims, a retired college biology professor and his wife,Kay, a retired school social worker. The cats live in a large shelter adjacent to the Sims’ home in Cullowhee, North Carolina.

If you like large cats you will love this older cat, Big Boy, He is around 25 pounds of love. If you adopt him he NEEDS to be put on a diet. He needs a home and lots of action. Check him out. He had a home. Good home. two good but owners fell on hard times and had to give him up. They left the shelter crying. He was loved and he needs love again. He has a microchip. Click on Catman2 to see more of Big Boy and the other cats available for adoption.

Thank you all so much for the great turnout for Chica's 19th Birthday Bash! She had a great time and is still going strong - not one to wimp out on a party! We have some winners for the quiz questions altho Mom should have Googled the answers better herself - you guys got one up on her!

The oldest living cat, according to the Guinness Book of World Records was Creme Puff from Austin, TX who lived to be 38 years - and Grandpa, the Sphynx, (who Mom thought was the oldest!) was 34 years and 2 months. So we have two winners - Artemisia, Socks, Scylla & Fenris for getting Grandpa's age correct first and The Monkeys for guessing right first about Creme Puff. Both you guys get a fun cube to play in!

No one got the first quiz about what you call a cat over 22 until Mom added another hint - cats over 22 are considered to be in their 100's - so the answer is centenarian. Both Creme Puff and Grandpa were considered to be 120 plus years old! Cat of Nine Tails won this quiz for guessing correctly first so they get a copy of the Cat High Yearbook!

Thanks so much for playing and all the good wishes. Let's hope Chica is around another 10 years! Don't forget June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month!

Congratulations to the winners! We had a lot of fun at Chica's party.

And Big Boy is adorable - and very handsome. We're purring for him to find a wonderful forever home. We looked up the Catman2 site and they sound like such good people. We also saw that they are raffling off a beautiful quilt to help the shelter - such a great idea.

Catman2 looks like such a handsome boy! It's so sad that his owners left him!

We are so excited we won! In fact, the only reason our Mom actually knew the answer is because awhile back she had noticed that torties seemed to live longer than non-torties, so she looked up the oldest one, fully expecting it to be a tortie! As you know, it wasn't, but she still thinks they live longer in general.

We had so much fun at your party, Chica! We wish you many, many more years in your wonderful home

Oh, he reminds me of my "angel" Chumley. *Sigh* I hope he finds a home soon, what a gorgeous boy he is.

Congrats to the winners! And we're so glad Chica had a great birthday!

That is such a sad story about Catman 2. Wish we could take him, but our Inn is overflowing. Congrats to the winners and our Mom learned something. That was fun.
Have a great week end.

Concats to the contest winners!

Chica's party was great fun. We hope to celebrate many, many more purrthdays with her.

We are heartbroken about the circumstances that led to Big Boy being at Catman2. We will purr and pray that he finds a new forever home soon. And that his former owners find some comfort in knowing that he is being taken care of at Catman2.

Congrats to the winners!! How fun!!

And Big Boy is such a handsome guy! We are so sad to hear about how he came to be at Catman2. We hope he can find a furever home...or we hope things get better for his humans and they can take him back...wouldn't that be the best???!?

Congrats to the winners. I'm so sorry I missed Chica's birthday, us old cats need to stick together. Mom has just been so busy and I haven't quite mastered the keyboard yet so I can do this blog stuff all on my own.

Bog Boy sounds very big! But, Mom says he's a pretty kitty for sure. We both hope he finds a good forever home. We're so sorry that he lost his old one. Mom says these days and times are very hard.

Big Boy does indeed look like a sweet fella! Fingers crossed!
