Too many kittens!  Here's a good place to hide for some beauty rest.  A queen must maintain her appearance, after all.

Quick Bio:
-pound cat-cat rescue

Birthday:
January 4th 2005

Coloration:
Chocolate-Tortie Point

Likes:
Having her head and neck stroked; getting one-on-one attention from one of her people.

Pet-Peeves:
Touching her belly or her back near her tail; having to share her Mom and Dad with other cats. In her mind, Sheba's an only 'child'.

Favorite Toy:
Sheba's not really a 'toy' kind of girl. She prefers just being around her people or taking a cat nap. Now that Sheba's been with us longer, she does enjoy toys! She loves a feather stick, and chasing her mousie's one of her favorite activities.

Favorite Nap Spot:
Under the bed; in a box; under a desk - anywhere hidden and warm

Favorite Food:
She'll eat almost anything but loves canned food! Any flavor will do just fine.

Skills:
Sheba loves to play 'Get That Cat'! It's a variation of the games of chase, tag, and hide-and-go-seek. She arches her back with her tail stuck straight up, meows at me, then dashes off to hide. It's my job to find her & then it's time for another round.

Dwells:
indoors

Arrival Story:
We adopted Sheba as a rescue cat. She had been at a shelter after being picked up as a stray. Imagine such a beautiful kitty being unwanted! I intended to adopt only one cat - Shamrock - but after visiting with Sheba in the cage at Petsmart, she won my heart. Thanks to Fancy Feline Rescue of the South for saving both these delighful kitties and letting me adopt them into our family. Her original name was Shina, but we could tell right away that she's the Queen, so we decided Sheba was a better fit.

Bio:
Sheba is a gorgeous, blue-eyed Siamese mix, with Tortie and chocolate points. She loves to be petted on her head, but she doesn't care to have her back or tail stroked. She'll hiss and bat your hand away, letting you know on no uncertain terms that those spots are off limits. Sheba has a lovely, loud purr. She's not a sociable cat, preferring the company of her human-mama to that of the other cats. Sheba can usually be found curled up under a bed or hiding in a dark, warm, safe spot if other cats are nearby. When we're one-on-one with her, she's a friendly and loving cat. We're hoping she becomes more cat-friendly over time, but if not, we'll give her the individual loving she craves.

Purrs & Ponderings from Sheba


Blind Cats CAN See a Future!

May 17th 2010 6:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

My Meowmy asked me to write a diary entry today for a very special cause!

I have two brofurs who are blind and one sisfur who is visually impaired. My angel sisfur, Scarlett, was blind while she was on Earth.

Did you know that even 'no-kill' shelters sometimes euthanize blind cats because they are considered 'unadoptable'?
Did you realize that a blind, black blind cat - like our Bones and Charcoal - stands virtually no hope of adoption?
That cats can become blind due to birth defects, trauma, untreated disease, and yes, even human cruelty?

BUT...
Did you also know that blind cats love to climb??
That they love to play with cat toys??
That they run and jump and enjoy life JUST LIKE OTHER CATS?

AND...
Did you know that there's a very special place for blind cats? A place where they are treated with love, respect, and care? It's TRUE!

This heaven-on-earth for blind cats is Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary of North Carolina, featured in the June, 2010 issue of Cat Fancy. www.blindcatrescue.com
BCR is the dream and life's work of a very special woman, and the Sanctuary depends on the sponsorships of the cats and donations from caring people around the world.

But YOU can help BCR today and everyday in the Shelter Challenge at The Animal Rescue Site! It's FREE and EASY and it can truly make a difference.
http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/clickToGive/home.faces? siteId=3

Our Stevie, Bones, Scarlett, and Charcoal are some of the lucky ones. They found a loving, caring home, thanks to messages sent to my Meowmy from BCR! Other kitties need the resources only a Rescue can provide.

Won't you help by voting today and every day during the contest for Blind Cat Rescue of NC? (Don't forget to confirm your vote by identifying the animal photo shown after you vote!)

All the blind kitties will purr in gratitude!!

A Step Forward for Eve!!

So many of you have supported Meowmy, Mama Terry and their friends' quest to find Justice for Eve, the sweet kitten who died shortly after being adopted from Okefenokee Humane Society in Waycross, GA. You can read all about Eve on her Catster page:
http://www.catster.com/cats/1086369

I asked Meowmy to update you on a positive development!! A man from the GA Department of Agriculture answered Meowmy's (third) email to that office! He asked for Eve's medical records, saying they were necessary for an inquiry to proceed. Of course, Meowmy sent them right away. So it looks like someone has noticed us!! PURRRRRR!!!

This may take time. (Has the government ever moved quickly??) We promise to keep you updated when we have news.

For all who care about Eve, please take a moment and sign her petition, if you haven't already. It's never to late to take a stand for all the animals still at Okefenokee HS. Thank you for caring so much!!!!

Wishing Upon a Star for Eve & FLOCK Justice

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! 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!!!
