Skippy, Sammy, Suki and Oscar...getting sweeter every day!

I feel like I have been in blog world in forever!! It's only been a week, but still...makes me feel out of touch! I had a nasty cold all week which slowed me down quite a bit. I sort of plowed through it and tried to get some artwork done and tend to various cat needs, but nevertheless, I am behind on a lot of things. I sculpted several munchkins, a special order elephant and a holiday cat...stay tuned for the WIP pics. On the spay/neuter end, I was able to get a sweet stray boy kitty neutered and vaccinated and back to his caretaker. I wish i had remembered to take a photo of him because he was absolutely beautiful...another one of those "how could anyone have abandoned this cat???" situations. On a very sad note, we trapped a feral teenage kitten who had radial paralysis and had to be euthanized. It was awful, but I try to find some solace in knowing that she didn't suffer alone outside....goodness knows what would have happened to her on the street. My vet is amazing and loves feral cats. I always trust her judgment. When she tells me what the correct and kindest action to take is, I never question her.

At this very moment, I am STILL trying to trap the homeless blue point himalayan in our neighborhood. He simply will NOT fall for our trapping tricks. It's making me crazy because I want to help him sooo badly. He is so scared and confused. Keep your paws crossed that we get lucky soon!!!!

Well, the excellent news is that Sammy, Suki, Skippy and Oscar are doing GREAT! They have become the most loving, affectionate, wonderful little buggers. All 4 of them will be snipped and vaccinated tomorrow and Tuesday. Then, we can start the adoption process! Here are some recent photos....

Without a doubt - these are just tooooo cute! I love looking at all of their pictures, their sweet and innocent faces. I don't know how you can part with any of them! You are a valiant soul, Carrie. The world needs more like you! xoxo G.

I just want to pick all those kitties up & love them! They are SOOO sweet! I'm sorry about your little teenage kitty. How sad. But like you said he's no longer suffering. I'm in the process of trying to catch a little kitty I've seen several times in our Walgreens parking lot over the past few weeks. No luck yet but still trying & leaving him food & water daily. Take care & can't wait to see your new creations! ~ Jill
