Thank You To Donna!

Baby Doll

For our Thankful Thursday post this week we want to give a shout out to Mom's friend Donna who adopted the feral cat Panther from SC and also took in Marg's Baby Doll.  Mom got to visit her recently and saw how well both cats are doing in their new home!

If you don't recall the details about the sleek black cat Panther - he was almost put down twice at a shelter in SC and then they scanned him for a microchip.  A call was made to the woman who had placed him and his journey began.  Our pal Brian from Brian's Home took up the quest and one thing lead to another and Donna wanted Panther.  His story is here.

Panther's turn to get some love.

It took months but Panther has blossomed.  He is still a bit shy at first with newcomers but will come out for Mom Donna to be loved up and petted.  He has the run of the house now and his best pal is Baby Doll!  Mom even got to pet Panther for a tiny bit.  It is amazing how well he has adjusted to his forever home.  Mom Donna says he looks at her with such love in his eyes that she just melts.  He is her loverboy. We know he is soo very grateful for her and his new family.

Baby Doll was being fostered at Marg's of Marg's Animals but she did not get along with other cats so had to have her own room.  Donna saw the post about Baby Doll on Facebook and said she would take her.  Baby Doll adjusted pretty quickly to her new home.  She prefers to stay on the upper level and still gets put out when the other cats invade her rooms.  She does, surprisingly, let Panther hang out with her. They both eat in the same room.

Baby Doll has her Mom time when Donna puts her make-up on in the bathroom  Baby Doll sits on the counter and lets Donna smush her face, talk to her  and love her to bits.  Funny how they all have their quirks.

Senior kitty Simmee

Donna has a magical way about her with problem cats.  They blossom under her care and love.  She has a big generous heart too. She also took in three senior kitties - Simmee, Grayson and Annie -  that were left at home when their owner went into a nursing home.  They had been living in the basement of his house.  Again, it took patience and lots of effort but they now are part of the household and interact with the other cats and people.

Donna also cares for a colony of feral cats that live in the fields behind her house.  Thank you Donna for all you do for your cats  and critters everywhere.  The world is a better place  with you in it!

Baby Doll does look great. So sorry she still doesn't like other cats. She always got along with people fine here, just didn't get along with other cats. I hope she is happy there. Take care.


We are so glad to see the progress everyone has made and we are so happy to see them so happy.
