We are having a big festive celebration for their sixth Gotcha Day - Sept 27 -with a Fiesta theme for our two lovely ladies Mamacita and her daughter Rosa. Some of our cats have Spanish names on account of Pop being from Texas!
Mamacita was a tiny little cat sneaking over to the back door of our old house, six years back to eat whatever the feral cats left. Mom put a special dish out for her and before she knew it, Mamacita moved two tiny kittens over to the neighbor's rickety old shed. They were wild wild wild but would come out for food. The kittens both had URIs so Mom set a kennel cage out to catch them and their mom to bring them inside. Rosa and her brother Manny had to have antibiotics and eye ointment for weeks. It got so they hated to see Mom and would run from her. We can't blame them.
|The three of them six years ago.|
Mamacita and Rosa are our shyest cats and often don't come out when there is lots going on. They prefer quiet. They love to be petted and to eat (heehee you can see that from their sizes.) We lost their brother, our beloved Manny, from a very serious urinary blockage when he was two, but he is forever in our hearts.
So grab a party hat, help yourself to the cake, yummy shrimp nachos and nip flavored margaritas! We even have a mariachi band so let's party!!!
This is a good day to share the news...tiny kitten Cobbie was transported from South Carolina to Brother Wolf Animal Rescue foster mom successfully this weekend. The very sweet kind lady who found Cobbie hiding all by herself in the shrubbery near a McD's drove all the way to bring her safely to our hands. She wanted to keep her but when Cobbie tested positive for FIV, she could not not since she had other cats. Cobbie rode very well in her carrier and will join another FIV kitten, Angelica, at her foster Mom's. She promised to send photos of the two playing together. Anyone want two adorable black and white kittens??? Let us know! We will be doing a post about the two of them later in hopes that we can find one forever home for both of them!
