updates....

Mom was supposed to do a bloodhound run on Saturday, but it was cancelled due to lack of drivers. Don't worry though, they found a long haul trucker willing to help them out and by Saturday night Scout was with his forever family. :)

Everyone here seems to be doing better. Mom thinks she may have been using an old batch of meds, so she got a new batch and it seems to be working better. Oliver still has runny eyes, but nothing as bad as it was.

Speaking of Oliver, he had an adventure the other day.

We think we have mentioned the set up of the condo before....you come in the garage, go up half a set of stairs, turn and go up another half set and then the condo is all on one level.
Well Oliver was up there and started chasing something. And....he fell off....and that is about a 10 foot drop. From the thud, mom suspects he didn't land on his feet. Mom checked on him and he was just sitting on the landing. As mom started down to grab him, he bounced up and took off past her up the stairs. Ugh.....those kittens are bound and determined to give mom a stroke.
We all love to sit up there (that is Elwood) but we don't normally fall off.

Sunday there was an adoption event held at the local Mars manufacturing factory (think Pedigree and Whiskas). They invite 12 groups each summer to a big event. Our rescue wasn't there but our friend Miss Karen was there with the cocker spaniel rescue so mom drove over to check it out.

Mom left at about the 1 hour mark of the event being open. At that time, 1 cat and 20 dogs had already been adopted. It was great weather and an amazing turnout....there were people everywhere.
          *Final adoption count was 76 dogs and 14 cats!!!

  3. So happy that Oliver is okay. That happened to our Madison when he was still living on the back deck and Mom was trying to befriend him. It set the process back a few weeks. That's a great result for an hour of an adoption event. Hope the adoptions continued at that great rate. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  4. We are relieved to hear Oliver was OK after his fall. Great news about the adoptions at the Mars factory - it made her think of Mars Bars of which she eats at least 2 a day - yuk!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Yikes! I hate it when cats fall. Contrary to belief, they don't always land on their feet, and even if they did, I'd hate to see what the weight of some like my Josie would do to their feet. Tell Oliver - and everyone there - to be careful!

  6. Glad Oliver is OK. Amazing how they can bounce back from almost anything. Glad the adoption news was so good. That is terrific.

    1. us too - although it is funny that mom says she can tell the difference between the "thud" of cat off the counter and "thud" of falling....

  9. There were adoption events all over - we had one in our neighborhood too! My human wasn't part of it so she does not know how it turned out, but she does know kitties got adopted because it said so on their cage!

  10. *GULP* Ten feet? Our Unca Ryker did that once, and he busted his lip open. Mommy didn't know whether to rush him to the vet or burst out laughing at the kitty with the fat lip!

  11. Yikes, that's pretty scary about Oliver. We are glad he seems to be okay. And that the new batch of meds seems to be working!

    Awesome news about the adoption event. WOW!

  12. We're so glad that Oliver is OK after his fall. Kittens seem like they're made of rubber sometimes, but we all know they aren't really!

  16. We're sure Oliver was yelling "I meant to do that" all the way back up the stairs. Glad he landed with no ouchies.
