Sunday quickie....

Mom is off to Petco this morning with the pepper boys.....first time with the new playpen. Pictures tomorrow.

Tim jumped into the bathroom this morning over the baby jail gate. He and Mist got a LITTLE too close and smack each other around. No claws, no hissing or growling.....just some smacky paws.

Oh, and Jalapeno made an attempt to get over baby jail this morning......oh crap!!

Thanks for the supportive comments yesterday.

The family is safe. We don't know if they have had any more luck catching some of the missing kitties. We have learned that they had converted their garage into a large foster room, mainly for FIV+ cats. We know that some think there was a too large number of cats in the house. However, for us it is about the care they receive. Hoarders keep cats, generally refuse vet care and do not look for homes for their animals. This family was a recognized foster for a recognized non-profit rescue group - the house was well cared for, the cats healthy and vetted and ALL were available for adoption.

This group, and we volunteer for them, is no kill and is willing to take in those cats that others will reject.....most groups never would have given Bourbon a chance due to disability. There are two kittens now that were born with deformed front legs that are looking for a home. FeLV (yes they have their own space), FIV+, is about getting them care and knowing they deserve homes just as much as the "perfect" cats out there. And being a HUGE proponent of spay/neuter and TNR.

OK - we are getting mom off her soap box. She had been reading some comments from the rescues facebook page. Most were positive and helpful but some were snarky. No one needs the snarky in this situation (or any other time).  If you would like to help, the rescue has a donate button up on their website.


  1. People can be so rude. When a house burns there is no room for snark. There are people that just hate cats and will do anything, anywhere to spread their hate.

    I am sure that when they die they will come back as a cat and Karma will win

  2. Here's hoping they'll find some of the missing cats. It's such a shame that people have to be so nasty. If everyone simply took care of their pets, we wouldn't need foster...but rather than acknowledging their own failures they have to be negative about those who truly care.

    Good luck to the pepper boys!

  3. We're so thankful the family is safe! Hopefully the missing kit-cats will show up!
    Hateful comments don't do anything to help the situation. May God comfort and bless the foster family!!!
    Play bows,

  4. I can't believe anyone would be snarky under such horrible circumstances. I would hate to be a sad human like that.

  5. We are so sorry to hear about the fire and the poor kitties. We are glad the Beins are OK and have some of the kitties safe.

  6. Some people really need to get a life. We do hope they'll manage to locate some of the missing cats. Our purrs and purrayers are with them during this difficult time.

  7. That's one of the problems with the Internet and social media now. People hide behind it because they don't have to talk to someone face-to-face. There's no excuse for being snarky.

    We're purring for the kitties.

  8. What would we do without rescues like this?? We hope they can find the missing kitties.

  9. it is sad when people jump to conclusions with out getting all the facts. there are people with one or two cats that are hoarders.. and people with 20 that are not. You are right, it is all about the care. There is no set point when there are 'too many'.

  10. Glad this is a recognized foster care family and that the kitties have their own space. We are so sorry some are still missing and hope they will be found soon. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette


We love to hear from you.....
