Random Fridays

Most of you are with us when we say that educating the next generation is the best way to help further animal causes. Well, we found this article about a class being offered by the Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego CA. Very cool!!
In mom's defense of yesterday's video - Emma would eat until she explodes. Don't believe a word she said about being starved......  MOL

Quill - we would love to send you Miss Emma as a new sisfur. But......

We was not gonna announce it until it was final, which was supposed to be today. Miss Emma has a home. A nice lady saw her picture at the Petco store and filled out an application. She was patiently waiting for Emma to get big enough for surgery....and was supposed to take her home today. However, that darned fungus is screwing up the process. So we have custody of the kid for another 10-14 days.

Jalapeno disapproves of the flashy box
(actually he is a sweet boy but generally gets that look on camera)

Poblano stares in wonder

Serrano lost his ball already

Oh and mom discovered the black pepper boys (haha) actually have a little white on them which should make it a little easier to tell them apart down the road. Serrano has a tiny locket on his chest and Poblano has half a mankini. And of course after the v-e-t visit the boys have shown no symptoms of anything. Mom thinks maybe they just wanted a road trip.

Miss Cleo is moving from our local store to another store where the rescue has adoption cages. She has been available for quite a while and mom doesn't get it, so we are hoping being in a new area will speed things up for her. She is beginning to play which is fun to watch!! Mom went to see her the other day and she was chasing a pink mousie around the cage. Good luck Cleo!!! Mom will still do her adoption, so we will keep you posted.


  1. Awww, we're thrilled for Emma, that's found her home. We're sending purrs she can go home soon and that she has a long, happy, and HEALTHY life!

    Paws crossed for Cleo, too, to find an amazing, wonderful forever home.

  2. Yay for lovely Miss Emma! We hope that awful fungus goes away asap!!

    Awww it's brilliant to meet the Black Pepper boys! Awwww!

  3. Miss Emma you have an admirer - we think Quill is an eligible bachelor too! We are purring for Miss Cleo to get a home when she appears at the other store.

    Everytime I see kitten pictures, I just want to run over there and snuggle them!

  11. Paws up for Emma! Whoever is adopting her is so lucky!

  12. Purring hard for Miss Cleo! We don't get it either. She is SO pretty!! Love the black pepper boys! Purrs from your friends at

  13. That class at Helen Woodward Animal Center is fantastic. What a wonderful way to teach little humans about loving and caring for animals. :)

    ConCATS to Emma and her new people! :)

  14. Yay for Emma! Fingers and paws crossed for Cleo!
    Can't wait for the peppers to get big enough for us to see their little spots!

  15. I know about eating until you explode. I do that if TBT doesnt watch me carefully! ~ IZA

  16. Well I am happy Emma has a home - she's a cutie!!

  17. well darn, Emma would have been an awesome sisfur for Quill. Oh well, it is awesome that she does have a home.

  18. Hurray for Emma, and purrs for Cleo! Efurkitty deserves beans who lub them!

    Those pepper boys looks like trouble, MOL

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  19. Purrrrrring that the new stage is the perfect place for Miss Cleo to be the star.

    Give little Miss Emma some time. If she is like a lot of kitties, once she realizes meals are going to be a regular part of her life, she'll calm down a little bit.

  20. We've heard wonderful things about the Helen Woodward Center, though we're not familiar with their humane ed curriculum. The fact they have it, though, is so very encouraging.

    Our shelter has a very successful program that is slightly different in that it isn't on our campus, but rather goes into public schools to teach. We've had requests from all over the US (even Germany!) to share it, so it's launching nationally next month. It's called "No More Bullies!" and it's held in schools (grades 3-5).
    It's based on the idea that children who bully and hurt animals frequently grow up to be people who hurt people. But those who are taught to love and respect and have compassion for animals will be able to take those skills and apply them to all parts of life.

    Sorry for going on - we're just so excited!!

    Emma - we're thrilled you've found a forever home - and not so thrilled about the fungus. ICK.

    Paws crossed for Cleo to find her home soon!


We love to hear from you.....
