Feed Me

In one day our local animal shelter cats went from 67 to 76. Too many beautiful adult cats sitting there waiting just as the kitten boom is about to happen. The Lanark Animal Shelter in Smiths Falls is the place to go if you live in my area and would love to adopt a cat. Please check out their site

It is another wet, dismal day so I was happy to fill the  hours with visits to my kitty clients and one precious big German Shepherd.
"Rain, rain.....go away" The sun should come out today.

I stopped by to find the grey cat but no sign of him/her. All the food was gone from last night so I will drop some off later this evening. I hope to help this cat. It would be so much better off inside at our shelter than out fending on its' own. The LAWS shelter is a 'no-kill'.

My Cali, who is 18 now is having some health issues. She is eating more, getting thin and seems agitated at times. I took her in for a blood-test and I am expecting to hear that she has a thyroid problem. She only weighs 6.4 and although she has never weighed very much, this is low for her. When cats reach her age there are so many things that can go wrong. I'm hoping we can find something to fix her up. She is one piece of work when she's not happy and thinks nothing of telling you off. I think that's why I love her so.
She's playing with Riley's blocks again. These messages will become censored if we don't find some relief.

hugs, Deb


  1. We are praying, really hard, that you can find the little gray cat. God bless you for being the caring person that you are.

  2. It's sad how many cats are up for adoption everywhere. We're getting inundated this part of the world too.
    Hope things go well with Cali... no it's not quite so straightforward when a feline reaches that respectable age.

  3. Sorry to hear Cali isn't doing so well. It's so very difficult to see our beloved family members have challenges.

  4. The other day my carpenter's cat died at the ripe old age of 21. He's had him half his life.

  5. Aunty Deb,
    Cranky Cali? Her message in blocks crack me up. We're all purraying for little miss grey. purrr....meow!

  6. Sending good wishes your way for Cali! I hope everything is ok at the v-e-t!
