Say what???

We are taking a moment of silence this morning for Ann and the girls. Poppy Vic passed away yesterday. We are very very sad for Ann......  zoolatry 

Adopt-A-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week 2012

Geez - didn't we just cover this????

Yeah, yeah, the cute white kitten was deaf. Why is that such a big deal???

mom: well, some people just don't want to deal with an animal that is different. And with dogs it is harder since they go outside and can get in more trouble if they can't hear their mom and dad.

But Doc was adopted really quick. Must be they fell for the cute.....

Miney: Domestic Short Hair-Black, Cat; Dublin, OH
This is Miney from Colony Cats.

"Miney was part of a litter born outside to a stray cat. She is such a sweet kitty, but she has a permanent head tilt from an ear infection. It was also determined she is totally deaf. It is hard to tell from watching her, but her cry is really exagerated because she can't hear herself. Miney is waiting to meet you at the cage free Colony Cats Adoption Center."

And hey, there is an advantage to being deaf too...... you can be the loudest pirate on the CB and don't care if anyone calls you out on it.  MOL

Miney got into the spirit and has her own Pirate name: Wild Eyed Emily

Someone asked us yesterday if the groups mom volunteers for halt adoptions of black cats close to Halloween. The answer is no - the adoption process is such that you have to fill out an application and go through an interview. Both places trust their adoption counselors to be able to ask the right questions and give them the ability to say no if they don't like the answers.


  1. Well, I know that Callie can hear, yet she also has a piercing yowl....I wonder what her excuse is?


  2. We think Miney is beautiful.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. Poor kitty having that bad an ear infection

  4. Sweeties. Too bad about Miney's ear infection. Her head tilt makes her look like she's really interested in what you're saying.

  5. Yeah! I don't think it's a big deal at all! We ALL have little quirks that make us SPECIAL - right?!!?
    Great post, kit-cats!
    Play bows,

  6. Miney, you are soooo pretty. Her head tilt makes her look really cute in a way. We sure hope she finds the great home. Take care.

  7. Thank you for answering our question about Halloween and the black cats. :)
    Miney has such shiny and healthy fur!

  8. You know what is really special?? A kitten with out knee caps. those are WICKED special. Known to grant wishes and repair hearts..

  9. Deaf cats can't hear the vacuum or blowdryer - it's great. The deaf cat we adopted out, Skye, thought the vacuum was her friend (even when it was turned on). She would try to head butt it. :-)

  10. I think it is more ACCs, which don't have time to do stringent adopter interviews and check, that need to be more careful about adopting black cats in October.

    My purrs are with Ann and her family.

  11. Any word about how Doc is doing in his new home?

  12. Awwwwww Miney doesn't know she's deaf! She just knows she's gorgeous!! Yay! Take care

  13. @Connie - we will get to him later...

    @Alley Cats - yeah, Doc liked the vaccuum too....

    @Cynthia - not sure - we emailed Doc's new family but haven't heard back yet

  14. Miney is a sweetie! I agree, she does look interested in what you're doing. She's got a double strike, deaf and black.. I hope the perfect family shows up for her soon!

  15. We're so glad Doc was adopted! Not only does the mom fall for cute over here, but we are kinda partial to deaf kitties since Maxie's deaf. (Pee Ess, don't tell Petfinder, but we redid the deaf badge with Maxie's photo and it's up today!)

  16. Miney sure is adorable! Our cat Sammy is deaf, and he's not afraid of the vacuum at ALL! :)

    Purring and praying for Ann and her family.


We love to hear from you.....
