Brief update for July 21st

Petra1 20jfeb14

Thanks to a special trip off island, Kathryn and Carra brought back 5 beautiful kittens from the NOAH shelter in Stanwood.  All have been spayed/neutered, microchipped and have received some vaccinations.  One of the 5 has already found a home and I know the others will find the perfect home soon.  They are:

Liam – short hair, male, white with black patches and a black tail; several folks have already noted he’s a cat dressed up like a Dalmatian

Howie – short hair, male, gray and black tabby with white paws and chest

Tribby – short hair, female, white with gray tabby patches

Cyrus – short hair, male, black and white tuxedo

#5 Midori has already been adopted.  She’s a fluffy tortoiseshell and joins Buttercup who was left as the only kitten in the room for less than a day.

The kitten cam is operating so enjoy the antics of these cuties.  If all you see is furniture and litter boxes, the gang is sleeping.

Our dear sweet Petra is no longer with us.  In just two days she went from being a voracious eater as well as a lobby greeter to a cat unable to stand.  Dr. Joe made a special trip to the shelter to evaluate her and discovered a huge abdominal mass.  This mass invaded all her organs and she also had internal bleeding.  Very sad but she had a great 6 months with us.  Petra came to us with greasy, coarse fur and wasn’t a friendly cat.  She soon realized she’d won the lottery and enjoyed her multiple wet food treats as well as all the pets from visitors.  She’ll be missed in the lobby.
