Opt to Adopt - Nala & Lexi

Mom got to drive twice this week for Ontario Bloodhound Rescue.  Two bloodhound girls - mother and daughter were rescued from Tennessee and moved to a kennel just west of us until they could be moved to foster care.

Nala is 3 years old and moved Thursday afternoon. She is super sweet. Great getting INTO the car, had to convince her to get OUT. :) Nala turned out to be heartworm positive so she got her first treatment before going to foster in Pennsylvania.

Lexi is 5 years old and moved Saturday to her foster home in Canada. She was also super sweet. She actually was heartworm negative which surprised everyone since Nala was positive. Lexi got right in the car and settled in for a nap.

And update: Lexi is already adopted. Her foster home was one of the head volunteers for OBR. In less than an hour, she posted that Lexi - now Clover - fit in great with their family and their big male bloodhound Humphrey and would be the newest member of their family. :)  Congrats!!

weekend wrapup

Guess who was adopted last week??? Yep, our momma cat Sunshine went home with her new mom on Thursday after she was spayed. Her new mom has other cats, two of whom are 1 and 2 years old, so hopefully once Sunshine settles in and recovers from surgery she will have some friends to play with. Mom already got a quick update and Sunshine escaped her room already and seems a little nervous but has also come looking for affection.

The little oranges are doing better and mom is hoping to get them spayed/neutered this week. And... once they have surgery, they have a family all lined up. And they will get to go home together.

Mom had some car issues on Thursday. She got Coral and Sunshine loaded into the car, put the key in the ignition and the car went....click. ARGH!!! (the girls learned some new HBO werds)  Fortunately mom layed on the gas the second try and the car started...she drove straight to the car guy and he replaced her battery. But it screwed up her morning and was money she hadn't planned on spending.

Coral has been doing this weird reflux thing when she swallows. Mom made an appointment with the vet. They think her system may be sensitive so mom will be keeping track and has pepcid on hand if she needs it. She is also upgrading her to a premium canned food. Oh...and her weight? 2 pounds 15 ounces. And yes, she turned 5 months old on 9-10. MOL The vet thinks she is fine and is just going to be a tiny cat. As always, she was very well behaved and climbed up into the arms of the vet, laid back and purred. What a ham.

And on another front, mom has been trying to find a treat Coral likes (for having a reward when they are out). Temptations - no. Blue Buffalo Yums - no. Freeze Dried Chicken - no. Freeze Dried Shrimp - no. Goofy girl....

random Fridays

Stoli was playing with the ess....not sure if he realized Coral was back there.

Our friend Miss Kelly (local) gave this flower when Maestro crossed the Bridge. Mom planted it outside and thought it died (have we mentioned mom has a black thumb?). But lo and behold it bounced back. Not sure if it will survive the winter, but mom was glad to see it bloom one more time.

That kicker sees some serious action - not all of it being kicked.

Mom was helping the bloodhounds yesterday and another this weekend. And some other news Monday too.... 

Hope your weekend is relaxing!!

good news

Ash AND Quartz were adopted this week. (no, not together) Mom got to meet Ash's new mom - there is an 11 month old girl cat at the house so Ash will have someone to keep him company. Mom didn't meet Quartz's family, but we are very glad they are both home.

Jet is still at the adoption center. She is in the kitten room and is out and about. She is a little skittish with people though. Add that to being black and mom worries about her.
