Update (4-28-17): They’ve all been rehomed. Stephanie is involved with bird rescue. If you’re interested in fostering/adopting birds, then, let me know & I can get you in touch with her. This was shared by Stephanie Durham at the Solano and Napa County Animal Rescue Facebook group: Hi, everyone. This campaign has a twofold benefit. Getting us out of this, unpleasant (to put it mildly), studio that we’ve been in for three years (read our most recent post about it) & being able to do more for the animal rescue, etc community. I volunteer with the kitties at the local shelter & we’ve adopted in the past. Your prayers, good thoughts, positive energy & shares are much appreciated. Thanks.
One thing, 80% of orange tabbies are male. I already knew the majority of them are. They’re not sure why, though. I’ve had three orange kitties in my life. The first was when I was eight to 18. It was my & my grandma’s. He had wandered onto our property. We lived in a more rural area just outside of town. We’d often get strays. Though some belonged to somebody & we made sure we got them back to their person. When I was 28 to 30 & living (renting from) with my grandma again, she adopted an orange cat. After I married, I would still see him, when I/we visited my grandma. 2 1/2 years after my husband & I married, we adopted our first kitty together. An orange male who was four. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge a couple of months ago. He was 19 1/2. All three of them were major loves. Several of the kitties, at the shelter where I volunteer, have been orange. Orange ones also tend to be more mellow. Please go to, I Heart Cats, to read the rest of the list.
Cats can make great gardening companions. Besides lazing in the sun & chasing butterflies, there are plants they like to nibble on. Unfortunately, some plants can be toxic & dangerous for your favorite feline. To find out some safe ones, including, catnip (one that many kitties enjoy), please go to: Simon’s Cat
What is it with cats and cardboard boxes? We used to have the occasional delivery and as a treat we would let the cats play with the empty box for a couple of days. Lately there have been more deliveries, so I piled several in a heap in the dining room and let them get […]
In Cornwall, Ontario there was a cat named Sylvester. On a wall next to him was a note which read, Please leave cat alone. Cat there for a reason. Thank you. He was supposed to be catching rats. He wasn’t doing so well with that. In fact, his fur was frayed, his body covered in sores, bites and fleas & he had a severe case of ear mites.
When Rob Boisvert, an animal rescuer with Refuge RR, heard about Sylvester through a friend, he visited the home & found the cat’s working conditions even more nightmarish. The house, which is in the heart of a neighborhood notorious for drugs & prostitution, was divided by temporary renters. He saved him & Sylvester was more than ready to go. He is now at the Country Cat Sanctuary. Where he is awaiting his forever person/family. Please go to, I Heart Cats, to read the entire article.
