Arrival Story:
My mommy says I'm very special! I mean, just LOOK at me! Of course I am special!! But here's what mommy says. My older sister, Tabby (that I never knew) went to the Rainbow Bridge on March 12th. After she left, mommy was so sad, and so was my big brother, Tucker. So mommy called this nice lady that has a cat shelter and asked if she had any kittens for her to meet. Mommy went and looked at all the kitties, and after looking at them she chose ME!!! I was so happy! Then when mommy was signing the adoption papers, she noticed that I arrived at the shelter on March 12th, the same day Tabby left. So that's why mommy says I'm special - because I was sent to her by Tabby.

Bio:
I LOVE it at mommy's house! Tucker is so much fun to play with. And there are lots and lots of toys, and a BIG window so I can sit here and look outside and click my mouth at the birdies!!

Omicat! I'm a DDP!!!

March 4th 2010 6:08 am
[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

I am SO happy and proud to be one of today's DDP's!

Furst of all, I would like to send love and kitty kisses to my handsome husband, Albie! I love you and will love you furever!

Also, a major concatulations to today's COTD Smokey-Bear Shasta; the COTW, Lucy; the DOTD, Serena; and my fellow DDP's, Miles, Victor Gibbs, and Forrest Grump!

Finally, I would like to share some of my own thoughts on the injustice that has happened recently. My dear furriend, who I consider part of my extended family, Eve lost her life early this year because the shelter she was in, the Okefenokee Humane Society, didn't take good care of her. Imagine being a blind kitty, alone with no one to love you, and no one to take care of your health problems or even make sure you were eating enough. That was the first seven months of Eve's life. Thank goodness Auntie Jody and Auntie Terry were there to love her during her last four days. But now the people who are in a position to DO something about this shelter aren't listening to our moms. PLEASE see my two previous diary entries to see how you and your pawrents can help!

Also, my beautiful furriend Muppet suffered at the hands of the "rescue" that called themselves FLOCK. Because of this group's negligence, Muppet and so many other kitties have had ongoing health issues. Muppet herself had major ear problems that caused her so much pain that she had to have surgery, which left her deaf. Muppet's case was supposed to go to court, but the case was thrown out because of technicalities! We can't let that happen! Please see my previous diary entry to see what you can do to help!!

Hugs and purrs,
Tessie

 

Stevie's Two Wishes

Please read the following diary entry from our furriend, Stevie:

Today I'm writing for our ever-growing cat family! We learned that we will be getting a new brofur!! He's blind like ME! His name is Bones, and he's coming from a high-kill shelter in SC. I was in a high kill shelter, too, and trust me, they are NO FUN! Some wonderful furriends and CCLs - like Meowmy - are going to rescue Bones then transport him to us!! We sure love blind cats in our house!

It snowed today but Meowmy says there are a few stars peeking through the clouds. She says if I make a wish, it might come true. I'm going to make TWO wishes! And YOU can help them come true!!!

Wish #1:
Many of you have read the heartbreaking story of my sisfur 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!!

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.
http://www.catster.com/cats/624959 - Muppet's page

Muppet is my furriend, and she's a survivor, like me. 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 a blind cat in GA, saved from death row, 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!!!

 

STILL Looking for Justice!

Majik is one of today's DDP's! I am copying her diary entry here because it contains some valuable information about how you and your pawrents can help Eve! (If you are not familiar with Eve's story, please see my angel sister Tabby's diary!)

We finally got the emails of the board members of the Okefenokee Humane Society!! These are the people who have control over the animals, like Eve, waiting there for forever homes. I'm also posting the county commissioners emails as they control funding for OHS.

Please!! Take a moment and email them, asking for an investigation of the circumstances surrounding Eve's malnutrition, spaying and death. Be polite but firm. Let them know we are also writing the state agriculture department. Eve's death should matter, and we are the ones who can see that it has meaning and importance. Bless you!!!!
