zoey-tocks

Hey everybuddy!  I bet you’re wondering what I’m doing.  Well, while we were busy house-cleaning…or should I say blog-cleaning…we missed out on our furiend Derby’s birthday.  Derby started a tradition a few years ago of showing your ‘tocks to celebrate his birthday and ‘Tocktober.  We may have missed the date…but this kitty’s not gonna miss out on showing all of you her floofy ‘tocks.  And being the modest girlcat I am, I kept my Spot #13 covered…unlike one certain orange stripey cat around here that likes to flaunt his at every opportunity.

Happy ‘Tocktober!

Hey everybuddy!  We’re back!  And we have a new look!  So whaddaya think?  Yeah…I know…I know…it kinda looks like our old blog, right?  Well, we wanted to keep the look and feel pretty much the same.  BUT now our gorgeous faces are in the header! Yeah!  And we did a little house-cleaning, too.

We wanna thank the most talented Glogirly for our new header.  And we wanna thank Chey’s human for helping the mom and giving her the moral support she needed to get this re-design done…FINALLY!  And thank you to Mr. Google…the mom says you can find the answer to almost anything if you google it.

We still have a little more tweaking to do.  And you might find if you look back at some of our old posts they may look a little wonky.  But if you have any problems…like if you subscribed to get us via email and you aren’t getting us anymore…PLEASE let us know!  We’ll do our best to fix it.

Now let’s see if this can last us another six years!

Hi everybuddy!
Check out this leaf that got caught
in a spider web on the outside of the window.

I’m spending the day watching it blow in the wind.
I know…pretty exciting, huh?

How’re you spending your day?

while we remodel and redecorate our blog.
Wish us luck that all goes well!

wally-face1 Hey everybuddy!  It’s me…Wally!  Today’s National Feral Cat Day…a day to think about the outside kitties…y’know…the ones that look like they don’t have homes.

NFCD2014_rectangle_FINAL-300x185

National Feral Cat Day was started back in 2001 by Alley Cat Allies as a way to share information and educate people about feral cats and to promote TNR…Trap-Neuter-Return.  Alley Cat Allies is the only national advocacy organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of feral cats.  Their mission is to end the killing of feral cats and lead the movement for their humane care.

In honor of National Feral Cat Day, we wanna introduce you to our TNR success story…our “feral” kitties…Chip (white/orange) and Slim (gray tabby).  These two kitties showed up one day late last year at the dad-guy’s business (some of you may remember that he owns a garden center).  No one knows where they came from or how they ended up there.  The dad-guy began feeding them and built them a make-shift shelter behind the building.  He didn’t mind having them around, but he knew that if they were going to stay, they needed to be “fixed.”

Pictures of the cages set up…ready for trapping…
and Chip and Slim after being trapped.

So the mom borrowed a couple of Have-A-Heart traps from the local rescue group…and one cold night last December, she set them up and managed to trap both kitties at the same time.  The dad-guy took them to the low-cost spay/neuter clinic where they were neutered (that’s when we found out they were both boy cats), vaccinated, and ear-tipped to show that they’re outside kitties being taken care of.  The next day the dad-guy brought them back to the garden center and let them out of the traps.

slim-setup

Chip and Slim have been living at the garden center ever since.  They have access to a back room that, although it’s not heated, the dad-guy and some of the workers made a pretty nice area for them with lots of bales of straw and a heated blanket. They’ve become more friendly, too.  They don’t act very feral anymore and, in fact, they like to crawl in the dad-guy’s lap and get lots of pets and scritches.

Chip and Slim may not have all the comforts that us Island Cats have, but they have food, shelter and people who care about them.  And they have each other.

ernie-wally-onbed

Hey everybuddy!  It’s me…Ernie.  It’s a typical Tuesday…or any day for that matter…here on the island.  Lookit me!  I scored the Coccolino bed for my nap!  But I don’t know how long it will last.  Wally looks like he’s sleeping pretty hard…but that could change any second. 

The mom says thanks for all the birthday wishes.  It really made her day.  And when the mom is happy…we’re happy.  Nah…it’s when we’re happy…the mom is happy. Right??
