Tribute To A Wonderful Dove

 Last week, my husband and I lost our beautiful dove.  Poor Job developed liver cancer.  He lost the use of his left leg when the tumor grew so large it put pressure on the sciatic blocking the nerve impulses.  He limped around his cage and found it difficult to perch.  Instead of sitting on both feet like […]

Holiday Kitten Update

I realized today that I have not posted an update on the kittens in a long time.  Sorry!  Myka (the tabby) and Jerry (the short hair black) continue to thrive in their new homes.  No one wanted the long hair black kitten because of his shy personality.  When around a potential adopter, he hid.  When I gave him […]

The Winning Name Is Keanu!

With all the wonderful suggestions to choose from, my husband and I had a thoroughly difficult time choosing a winner.  After much thought and deliberation, we chose the name Keanu.  It is the Hawaiian word for breeze.  This fits him perfectly as he ‘breezes’ from one room to another.  Congratulations to VT for the suggestion!  She […]

Kitten Update

I have wonderful news from Myka’s new family.  Little Myka is thriving!  At first, his feline brother and sister weren’t too sure about having a baby in the house.  They hissed and played “hard to get” for a few days.  Now they are all one big happy family.  Myka is a people cat, he likes to be […]

Kitten Update – Two Found Homes!

Great news!  Yesterday, the buff kitten was a adopted by a very nice woman who lives in Phoenix.  The little guy will be an only child in his new home.  Although he will miss his brothers, I think he will thrive as an only cat.  He loves attention.  His new owner promised to send me updates.  I […]

Brown Tabby Male Kitten

  The Explorer This little guy was the most athletic kitten of the litter.  He loved to climb anything and everything he saw.  Scratches still cover my legs from his sharp little claws.  Because of him, I kept my feet up on a stool when he was loose.  One night, he stared at my legs, gathered himself, jumped and […]

The Buff Kitten

  The Teddy BearThis little fellow reminds me of Baloo, the character in Disney’s Jungle Book.   When he nurses, he likes to lie on his back.  He closes his eyes and massages the air with both front feet.  His actions remind me of Baloo singing about the ‘Bare (or is it Bear) Necessities’ while scratching his back on a tree.  This […]
