Little Buddy has a Furever home!!!
Cat-O-Cat! Pops made a special trip and took him to meet some very nice people! He knew they would just love this wonderfur little fellow! We told him to listen to everything we told him on how to flirt with hoomans!
*Tim Whispers: We told him to ignore whatever Big Buddy Bud said*
*Buddy-Bud hollars: "Whut? You say sum-tin Timmerz?"*
No Buddy! Nothing!
So, he climbed out of his carrier and got his motor running right away. He looked very good with his fur all shiny and neat. He paraded back and forth being a good kitten. He walked up front and looked at Pops who gave him a wink. He then really got purring and walked back to give the man and woman a nice head bump.
When the ringy went off today we all crowded around. Pops held his finger up to be quiet and was talking for a long time.
He hung up and said "Oh well next time".
We were all like "WHAT? Whats wrong?"
Pops yelled "PSYCH! HE's GOT A FOREVER HOME!"
Then he gave us all a treat! We are all Tails-in-the-Air happy!
Have to go! We are getting a little cat-party going!

This year some of us had little cat troubles. Some of us had big cat troubles. We have had good and bad, health and illness, loss and plenty. Old dear friends have gone over the bridge and we mourn their loss.
On the human side it has been even tougher. Many have lost much and some have lost all. There is difficulty just getting through any given day.
So now this year is coming to a close. Looking back we know our little family had days that were very difficult. Rumpy had his burn last January. Pops had family and work issues. Our fosters are still looking for forever homes.
With that meowed you could hang many names on the past year. Many would cause eyes to open wide and ears to swivel about. We are just going to say that, for we TomCats, Pops too, it was, well, it was challenging.
Some may think that is too soft a word. Not descriptive of all the anguish and turmoil. Well, maybe so, but, we temper this word with others! Love! Friendship! Caring! Helping! Giving!
The caring and loving friendships we have here with our friends shifts the balance, moves the needle, fills the tank, smooths the wrinkles... Well maybe not that, but, you know.
Whenever we come here we feel it. We wonder at the deep and meaningful emotions we have from our wonderful interactions with those we love. Coming here is plain fun. It gives a spring to the step, a twinkle to the eye, we cannot help but purr and we see Pops smile.
Yes sometimes there is sad news. That is life. The important thing is to keep your eye to the good. Allow the love in and give it freely away. Be kind and do good works to your ability. Let those around you know how you feel and be true to who you are.
You are all truly wonderful and I love you all!
(In a Man-Cat way of course)
Your good friend
Happy New Year from Da-Boyz N Pops!

Thanks to all our good furends who sent cards by E and Mail!
Check them out on Toby's page
We love you all!
Pops gave us each a special meal and some new toys which we all really enjoyed. Buddy saw how big Lil-Buddy is getting! Wow they could be brofurs and the Old Galoot put a great photo on his page.
Of course Rumpy took over Pops gift bag! What a goofy cat!
What a day we had! We are all played out and are finally winding down..

Hi my good furiends. Well another week is gone in this year and me and Da-Boyz are all wondering what goodies Santa Claws is bringing? Pops is going to be Santas Helper today! Meow I bet that means we move to the top of the "Good Kitties" list.
We helped Pops make out our cards and just LOVE the ones we have gotten! We all crowd around when Pops gets home during the week (after treats of course) and purr away while he opens them. We read every word and always are full of wonder about how creative cats can be.
Thanks so much to our good furiends.
Pops was late last night. He said there was a Party with all the volunteers from Spay and Save. Today he is tired as he does not stay up late often.
Tough being old Pops! MOL!
So one more adoption day before Christmas. Remember to tell your hoomans to remind their friends about all the wonderfur fosters who need a home. Giving a needy fur a home is a wonderfur way to enjoy this special day.
Meow at ya soon

Hey Furs. Well its almost Catmus again. We Boyz are being extra good so we get some nice goodies from Santa-Claws! MEOW!
Now the exciting news:
Our very own Pops has the honor of being one of Santa-Claws's helpers! He is going to be all set up and then hoomans will bring their pets and have pictures taken. The best part is that it is for a good cause and the money is donated. Pops says it is hot in that suit. He also does not like the little dogs that will not sit still and keep wiggling. He asked Rumpy if he wants to go and wear his harness and maybe some antlers. We think he should. MOL
On to the important medical information:
When Pops fosters cat kits many times when they arrive they have goopy eyes and/or upper respiratory infections. This is just part of the package when you have cats living with poor nutrition, stress, and close quarters.
This year it seems even worse than usual and the last kits he took in had the eye issues. He treated them and when they were better they went to a local PetCo. Well in one week they were back and their eyes were as bad as ever. It was like they were never treated. So he started their eye meds again and figured the stress of being in public caused a relapse.
Imagine his surprise when he was finishing "Think like a Cat" by Pam Johnson-Bennett and read about Feline Pneumonitis(Feline Chylamydiosis). Seems that this presents with eye discharge (conjunctivitis) along with upper respiratory problems like cough and sneezing. He started Clindamycin and both kits eyes have cleared and their cough is much improved.
Now this is not to say that a kit or cat does not need a veterinary visit when sick! Never try and diagnose your cats illness or use something you find on the WWW in place of a visit to you vet. It is just something to think of if you foster or care for cats in a multi-cat environments with a history of disease. It is something to think about if your human has treated an eye issue and it comes back.
We are so looking furward to Catmus. We are getting ready to send goodies to our furiends! Whee so much fun! We love this time of year. We love giving things to our friends.
Purrs to all!

Here we are doing the Caturday chores. Trying to give the fosters some fast tips, again, on looking good for a prospective adopter. A very tough year. We are purring for Buttons Fitz Inky and Lil-Buddy.
We had a very nice holiday last week. Pops gave us plenty of good food. He played with us on the extra days off. We wish he would not have to leave on those days when he has to go to the "Third circle of hell" as he says. He said in a few weeks he will have a brand new position and will then have more energy to play. We hope so.
*Tim whispers* Rumpy had a messy bump last week. P-U! At least he now lets Pops give him a good wet wipe to clean him up. I hear he is getting another "sanitary trim". Don't tell him.
Pops made us a new Nip-Sock! He puts a big bunch of nip in an old sock and let-me-meow-you! These are grrrreat fun. We all take turns bunny kicking and licking away. I get it more because I am top-cat around here! Meow!
Purring a fun and safe day with many more to all my furs

Hi furs and family!
I want to make sure you all know that we really care about each of you very much even though we have not been able to come by as much as desired.
We Tomcats always thy to remember that it is much tougher out in the world than around here. We have nice toys and plenty to eat. We have places to lay and places to play. Our Pops takes time every day to pay attention to each of us. We are very very thankful. Many have a much harder time.
This year was tough for hoomans due to the economy. Many are really struggling. This means that the homeless cats and kittens have it tougher too. Pops says this year has been very slow and fewer adoptions means we can help fewer cats. Very sad. Please remind your hoomans to always spay and neuter. There are many ways to get very significant discounts to help with this important work. So it has been a hard year, but, we have had real good things happen also.
Mr Buttons has an application for adoption! He is such a nice boy. Purrs and loves to play. These nice young hoomans did not mind that he is FIV positive! Purr that the home check goes well and he has a home for the holidays. Rikki Raccoon went home last week! Whee. Little Buddy is getting big and handsome so we hope he will be adopted soon along with Inky and Fitz.
So with all the dark clouds there are bright rays of Sun! Good things happen all around us all the time. We have to remember to not just look but to see. The wonder is all around us. For this we are Thankful!
Thanks for being friends with the Tomcats, Fosters and Pops too!
Bonks and Purrs from all of us to all of you!
Timmy, Toby, Buddy, Rumpy, Pops, Inky, Fitz, Lil-Buddy, Buttons
