Best Friends - day 2

Tuesday was cats all day long. CalMar in the am (their Feline Leukemia house) and Quincy's in the afternoon. Quincy's has their FIV+ rooms along with some special needs cats.
Most of the cat rooms have these cubes attached to the support columns.
This is Mesa in CalMar supervising while they did some cleaning.

What has everyone's attention??
There were a pair of doves building a nest in that tree.

The kid has skills - she charmed Gus too.

Bo is one of the kid's favorite cats. When mom and the kid were 
out there 2 years ago, Bo and his brother Barney loved on her.
Barney passed away in October 2016, but Bo is still there and 
doing well. However, he doesn't do sleepovers, so the kid had
to love on him while they were volunteering.

This is T-Rex. He is an FIV+ boy who decided the kid was HIS!
He wasn't sharing either - he dug into her jeans and swatted
any other cat that happened to pass by.

This is Viggy. He is very sweet and was our overnight guest
on Tuesday. He LOVES people, though he could learn a thing 
about not head butting them in the middle of the night. :)
Viggy is FeLV positive and is about 3 years old.


  1. Sure looks like the kid had a good time with all the cats. What a fun and great thing to do. We know that cats were happy to have a visitor. Love the pictures.

  2. Quite an impressive facility. Looks like "the kid" is a good helper and enjoying herself, and the cats enjoying her.

  3. Love how T-Rex claimed her. We didn't do a sleepover when we went. May have to try that out!

  4. This looks so amazing! Visiting Best Friends is definitely on our mom's bucket list.

  5. How fun! My human would want to live there forever!

  6. Agree with Summer's comment! Best Friends may need to set up a subdivision, just to house permanent volunteers.

  7. kewl !!!! tell de mom we said thanx for sharin....we N joyed thiz post...N we hope everee one findz ther for everz ~~~ ♥♥♥

  8. TRex definitely looks firmly settled in.

  9. The kid is having a great time. And why not when you have cats all day long. :)

  10. The kid definitely has some cat whispering skills! We love when you share about your visits to Best Friends!

  11. Oh my gosh, what a fun trip! And an overnight kitty friend? How awesome is that!

    We hope your mom takes a peek at our blog today, we mentioned her and give an update on the kitty she helped my mom adopt last June!

  12. Best Friends sounds like heaven on earth! Definitely on my bucket list :)

  13. I would love to be able to build a refuge like that. Sigh. I like T-Rex; I hope he wasn't too put out when you had to leave.

    1. fortunately he got up and left on his own or mom was going to have to leave the kid (haha)

  14. What a great trip ! Best Friends sounds like a pawsome place. Purrs


We love to hear from you.....
