Update on Kitten Cobbie (AKA Danica) and her buddy Angelica

Cobbie (now called Danica)

If you remember a few weeks back our Mom helped to find a foster home for a South Carolina kitten with FIV.  Well she went by to see how Cobbie was doing today. Cobbie's name has been changed to Danica and she is up for adoption along with another little FIV kitten named Anglica.  They are best buddies and we hope to find a forever home for them together.

Angelica - look at her paws!

Angelica and Danica were born around July of 2011. Angelica likes to lay around your neck and purr in your ear. Danica loves to play with people and with her buddy cat.

They both tested positive for FIV but know that FIV is not an automatic death sentence. Lots of kittens and cats live long and healthy lives. They just need to be inside ONLY and get regular vet check ups, good quality food and lots of love.

It would be great if they could be adopted together as they are very attached to each other and love to play and wrestle. An FIV cat should be the only cat in the home unless you have another FIV cat as it can be contagious but only to other cats.

Mom wants to reiterate that our Ivy has been living indoors with all of us for six years and she tested positive for FIV.  None of the other cats have had any problems health wise since Ivy came inside.  FIV is only transmitted to other cats via a serious bite.

If you would like to know more about these wonderful kittens, please leave a  comment or email our mom.  Feel free to repost, use the photos or tweet or post on Facebook.  We really want to get them a forever home while they are still young and cute!  If you can't adopt, then consider sponsoring one of them! It would help with their care and expenses!

Brother Wolf Animal Rescue's Adoption Center is located at 31 Glendale Avenue, Asheville, NC or phone 828-505-3440. Our hours are: Mon.-Sat. 8:00am-8:00pm and Sunday 8:00am-6:00pm.  Their web site is here. If you think you might want to sponsor one of them Angelica's page is here and Danica's page is here.

We will persist with this until we find them a home!!!!

Garden Thursday

Hey ya'll, Norm here today.  Us white cats have the best view of the garden from our screen porch.  I am honored to take you on a tour today.  We have mostly potted plants left now that it is getting cooler - pansies, mums, and some of our summer plants are still blooming. Plus we have pumpkins too.  Our birds have been busy at the feeders so we have lots to watch there!  Please visit the other gardens today at Cory's Cat Blog.





Geraniums, inpatients, begonia

Hope you enjoyed our garden today.  It is also MIA day for cats who have gone on a walkabout.  We had two kitties - Leroy and Bob who disappeared way back years ago and we never saw them again.  Both were only about six months old when that happened.  We hope some wild animal did not get them cuz they were smallish cats.  They were feral cats so we know no one took them in! Sending purrs to all the MIA cats out there.

Fly Free Dora

Recently Marg of Marg's Pets rescued two tiny kittens - Dora and Mahoney.  Tiny Dora ran off to the Bridge unexpectedly this morning.  Please go by and offer Marg some support - she is very upset over this.

Mahoney is OK but the vet found out she has two broken feet.  She may have had nutritional deficiencies in her early days with her feral mom.  If anyone has experience with this please drop by Marg's to tell her your story.  Mahoney is on pain killers and being kept comfy while she heals.

Going Pink for October

It's me Joey today for Mancat Monday and we are going PINK for October!  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All us Mancats are secure enough in our masculinity to wear the color pink, especially if it is for a good cause.  Mom's friend Emily recently lost her fight with breast cancer so we want more women to be preventive - get those mammograms, MRIs or thermagrams, check yourself regularly at home for any anomalies, exercise and eat a healthy diet.

Mom did a special page about the best cancer non-profit organizations to support, utilize and promote - ones that don't test on animals and that don't spend all their donations on salaries.  The two worst offenders are the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  All the others are listed here.

Are you going PINK?
