Late September is finally bringing cool breezes and some relaxation to Camp Kitty. To say that this summer was crazy is probably a bit of an understatement. Camp had it’s first SRO weekend on Mother’s Day weekend, and it pretty much didn’t stop until about three days ago.
In addition to this craziness, there has been a lot of action on the foster front. The summer started off rough with us dealing with a sick kitty. Our sassy Stella started acting oddly. She didn’t try to share our lunches and she didn’t ask to have the door between retail and boarding opened a zillion times a day. Plus we noticed she was losing weight. After a couple of very expensive trips to the vet (donations can be made at http://aarfatlanta.org/), we found out that she has GI lymphoma. While there is no cure, she is now on medication and has improved greatly.
Next, our sweet Frittata finally found her forever home! We still don’t understand why this took so long since she is honestly one of the sweetest cats ever made, but her new family loves her. And I understand that her new ‘brother’ at least tolerates her.
We have also acquired some new fosters. Vegas and Gizmo are ‘brothers’ who boarded for a while. But due to unfortunate circumstances, they needed to find a new home. Well, despite owner warnings and notes from the vet to “Use Caution!!” with Gizmo, everyone at camp immediately fell for this round boy. Gizmo has not met an animal or person that he does not like. He has quickly become the greeter at camp.
And we weren’t going to take him without taking his ‘brother.’ Vegas is one dude with a lot of personality. He quickly declared himself guard cat and bouncer here at camp. While he does feel like he needs to be in control of everyone, he does manage to coexist in a mainly peaceful way. And he sure does love attention from us lowly humans.
And in case this wasn’t enough, this happened…
Yes, kittens. These little guys and gals were so tiny when we got them but are growing every day. They love hanging out with their older ‘brothers’ at camp and generally just being plain, old goofy.
So come on into camp and say hi to the gang!
