Year 2014 in review (part 1)

a few numbers before we get started:
   this is post 1380
   mom transported 16 dogs this year
   foster: 3 momma cats and 19 kittens


January came with a kitten in (Cumin) and two kittens being adopted (Milano and Chex who were returned and this was their second adoptions). And mom's brother's family adopted Scooby Doo (yep - he is a kitten):
And mom was involved with Ontario Bloodhound Rescue in saving Summer and Blu

February had a couple of adoptions: Cumin and Amelia (aka the Dust Bunny)
Our grandparents adopted a woofie they call Izzo and mom rescued a feral named Katniss
   oh - and Mo decided he didn't like Al Roker:

March gave us some adoption updates - which we love

April was a wild ride. Licorice got adopted!!!  Jade and Mica arrived....with four kittens coming the next day...and everyone needed a name. This group ended up being our geology kittens: mom Jade, with Mica, Ash, Pearl, Amber, and Coral.
Saffron was adopted (once mom finally got her on Petfinder). And we got some bad news about Maestro.

May is a month we would almost like to forget. While the geology kittens turned a month old and we added Cinco the household as a foster, we lost the old man of our family. Maestro crossed Rainbow Bridge due to cancer.
we love and miss you sweet mancat

June had poor Jade acting as a surrogate mom to...more kittens. We added three more kittens to the geology family: Jet, Topaz and Quartz.  The older kittens turned 2 months old. We celebrated International Box Day. And mom took a vacation with the kid to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah.

We hope you will turn in tomorrow for part 2.


  1. You had a very busy year, with lots of ups and downs. We hope 2015 will be kind to you all, and will bring good health, happiness, love and lots of treats!

  2. That was a very busy year with happy and sad moments. Next year I hope you can erase all the "sad".

    Have a Hap-Pee and Safe New Years Eve!

  3. When you describe a year like that, month by month, it seems a wonder that you had time for anything. Yet when you try to recall something off the top of your head, you wonder what you did...

    I remember when Maestro died, the poor fellow.

    I'll look in tomorrow, when you start the new year with a look at the old.

  4. We were just thinking the same as John's comment. How did you have time for anything with all of that going on this year? Happy new year to all of you!

  5. A busy year full of ups and downs. Looking forward to reading tomorrow's review. Happy New Year's Eve, and here's to an even better 2015!

  6. What a great idea to do a year in review. Sweet Maestro. I hope he and Zimmie are ringing in the new year together.

  7. We'll definitely tune back in for Part 2 because our mom loves updates! Thank you for saving so many. Have a safe and Happy New Year!

  8. It's been quite the year....we can't wait to see the rest. Happy New Year's Eve!

  9. Very busy year, and it's only the part 1 ! We're looking forward to reading part 2 ! Happy New Year and all the best for 2015 ! Purrs
