Arrival Story:
Fate caused me to read the cat adoption section of the newspaper one day when grad school was really getting on my nerves. Something just clicked. Her human had adopted her from the pound as a kitten. He developed Alzheimers and neede to give her up. She was headed back to the pound as no one in the family wanted her. When I went to look at her she hiding and scared all I could see of her was her rump. I fell in love with her diluted tortie coloring. She seemed healthy, nice fur, clean ears, nose, tail. We secluded her from the other five cats in the spare bedroom. She promptly hid under the bed for two days. Gradually, she came out and let her personality shine.

Shadow is a very timid girl. We do not know how old she is or what her real name is. The people we got her from didn't know the answers to any of my questions. We adopted her in Oct of 2004 and she was maybe 4-7 years old. It took a while for her to feel comfortable in our house. She was not used to other cats or stairs. She is very shy at first but once she gets to know you she is a real flirt. She rolls on her back and purrs to no end. She will not let anyone pick her up and will run away if approached. She will however make use of any lap and loves to be scratched and brushed. She came into our lives when I was having some real life altering questins and taught me perspective.

Pretty Angel Wings
Soft, strong, ever beautiful
Carry me to freedom


An up and coming journey of wonder and adventure

Now I lay me down to sleep
Memory of me my mum shall keep.
If I should journey ere I wake
I know the Lord my soul will take.
And ore the Rainbow bridge I'll fly
If tonight I sleep, perchance to die.

Mom I'm tired, sore and weak
I know more life you'd like to tweak,
From this old body sick and thin
I really do not think I'll win
Much more time upon this earth
Enjoying cuddles, love and mirth.

I am not sure just when I'll go
Believe me mum, you are first to know.
The angels have a plan for me
They have been working tirelessly
To find a place on the other side
So I can peacefully abide.

I love you mum, please do not grieve
When it becomes my time to leave
Celebrate my life with joy
Remember me with my favorite toy
And smile knowing I love you
I will because you love me too.

Shadow's mommy: I don't know if the angels will come for Shadow tonight or not. She is very weak and her eyes are sunken. We are having a special snuggle tonight.


Wishes CAN come true

Purrlease dear furrends, help me make my wishes come true.

Wish #1:
Many of you have read the heartbreaking story of my furrend Eve. I never got to meet Eve, due to the neglect she suffered at Okefenokee Humane Society in Waycross, GA (Ware Co.) Meowmy and Eve's to-be adoptive Mommy Terry, along with their friends, are asking everyone to write snail mails or emails to the folks on the list below. Be polite but ask for an investigation into the conditions at OHS. So far, we have had only one noncommittal reply. You can read my back diary entries for that actual letter. If enough of us write and express our concern for the animals still there, surely someone will listen to us. Please help us bring Justice for Eve!! (Eve's Page) nd-kitten-blog/humane-society-it%e2%80%99s-not-always-a-paws ative-place-part-1/2010/02/16/(Part One of the Catster blog about Eve)

Eve's Petition: You can sign now!

People to Write for Justice for Eve: (Email is fine, but sometimes 'snail mail' gets more attention and is harder to ignore. We only have emails for some people.)

Jim Brown. County Commissioner
Carlos Nelson County Commissioner
Victor Aldridge County Commissioner
Kathy Davis ( not animal friendly) County Commissioner
Gene Dixon phone (912) 285-1319 County Commissioner

The mailing address for those listed above is:
Ware County Board of Commissioners
P.O. Box 1069
Waycross, GA 31502-1069


Gail Boyd County Manager

No Address for the OHS Board Members but here are the emails:

Deen Strickland O.H.S Board President
Dr. Jim Morton O.H.S. Vice President
Sirena Cady, OHS Treasurer
Susan Winge OHS Board Secretary.
Dr. Wes Blount
OHS Board Member Veterinarian ( Was doing weekly visits)
Darla Moumberg OHS board Member
Millie Hopkins Board Member past president
Heidi Flowers. OHS Board Member

You can also snail mail Dr. Blount at this address.
Dr. KT Blount
Satilla Animal Hospital, Inc.
511 City Blvd.
Waycross, Ga. 31501
Dr. Blount is a vet serving on the OHS Board. He is the only person to respond to Meowmy's emails. His very short, very unhelpful response is in my previous diary entry.

Tommy Irvin
GA State Commissioner of Agriculture
Georgia Department of Agriculture
19 Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr., S.W.
Atlanta, Georgia 30334


The man in charge of all shelters receiving public funds in GA.

Mary Green
Division of Animal Protection
Georgia Department of Agriculture
19 Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr., S.W.
Atlanta, Georgia 30334

It is her responsibility to oversee all shelters in GA that receive public funds. Her office would be the one to conduct such an investigation of OHS.

Even these state officials, whom Meowmy supports with her taxes, will not respond to her emails or letters. Please join those who BeliEVE in Justice for Eve - and all animals who are abused or neglected!

Wish #2:

Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight...I wish I may...I wish I might...find justice for my friend Muppet and the FLOCK cats. - Muppet's page

Muppet is my furriend, and she's a survivor! She was at a huge cat 'rescue' called FLOCK. These cats were left to starve and several hundred did not make it. Muppet was critical but she was so strong and fought so hard to live! And she did! Best Friends Rescue took over and thanks to hard workers like Muppet's wonderful furever mommy and others, the surviving cats had a chance for happy, healthy lives.

Unfortunately, the case against the bad people who ran FLOCK was DISMISSED!!!! I'm going to quote now from Muppet's diary:

"...And on this note, and the main reason for my diary entry, we are asking all of our Catster friends to please write a letter to our District Attorney, Bob Beckett, letting him know how outraged every animal lover is that his office failed to properly see that there was justice for Flock. Although he has filed an appeal, we want Bob Beckett to know just how many eyes are upon him and how he better not let his office mess it up this time! Meomy was told that this case was ‘purposely hidden so the outcome would be a dismissal.’ And in today’s paper it states, “Beckett’s notice of appeal was filed yesterday. Gibson (General Council for FLOCK) said that surprised him because he and Beckett had struck a deal that the case would go no further.” Struck a deal? Humph!!

If everyone who cares about this case could please write a 'snail mail' letter to Bob Beckett, it could really help this case a lot. We need a flood of mail to come in. And thank you to everyone who already have sent letters! *grateful hugs*"

Mr. Robert Beckett
District Attorney, Nye County
1520 E Basin Ave
Pahrump, NV 89060

I'm just one cat, but I speak for so many when I beg you to write to DA Beckett and to those with authority over Okefenokee Humane Society. Sadly, neglect and abuse of helpless animals happens every day. Usually there isn't much we can do. Here is the chance for caring, truly HUMANE people like my Meowmy and Muppet's Mommy to join your voices together and take action! Write DA Beckett, please. Write or email those in Ware County who can help the poor animals still at OHS.

You CAN make a real difference! They may ignore a few of us, but they cannot ignore us ALL.

Bless you for caring! Thank you so very much, HQ, for giving us the opportunity to inform Catsters and Dogsters about these heartbreaking cases. We love Catster!!!
