update on momma and kittens

seems momma must have caught wind of our plan to catch her and her babies. she hasn't been seen for a couple of days. i took the trap and a crate out to my friend. i gave her some stinky goodness and some dry food also. she has everything and is ready when/if momma cat returns. we are praying they are okay.

i am hoping to get everything together before the end of this week for the raffle. i decided to go ahead with the raffle in case momma cat comes back. that and it is time to take yuki, kimiko & kintaro in for their yearly checkups. Yuki should need bloodwork to see how well her kidneys are functioning and kimiko has developed a backwards cough. the best way to explain her cough/sneeze is she sucks in instead of coughing/sneezing out. it is kinda weird sounding. tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5. money donated will go to take care of momma and her kittens (if they come back) and my girls vet bill for whatever tests the vet says they need. if there is any money left over, i will donate it towards another kitty in need.

it never ceases to amaze me at the kindness, caring and compassion i see everyday on the cat blogosphere. i feel so fortunate to be a part of such a great group of cats (and other furries & feathers) and their beans.

  2. I am wishing your friend good luck with the mom and bebbehs.

    I have heard of something called a "reverse sneeze." Maybe that's what Yuki is doing? You can do an online search for Reverse Sneeze and get more info.

  3. Come back momma! Come back kittens! You're all so adorable - the nice people just want to help you. Come get in the cage - you won't regret it. Getting caught is WAY better than living on the streets. Take it from kitties who know.

  4. I hope the little feline family come back soon or can be found. Mummy cats move their kittens around, but often not too far away, especially if there's food about. Maybe some food will tempt her back soon. Best of luck trapping her!
