Arrival Story:
Franz and his siblings were abandoned by people that moved away and left them out side. After several months of living on my front porch, and the death of his twin brother (Hanz) we were able to trap Brother and Fluffy.Franz is still grieving the death of his twin and nursing attack injuries but he is a very sweet boy. He loves to play with feather toys and is very gentle.

Fanz has been altered and is current in his shots. He and Fluffy are ready for forever homes, adopted alone or together.

Franz went to Rainbow bridge this after noon. It was a difficult decission but after much talk with the doctor it wa decided that it was best for him. We were able to spend time with him in a quiet room at the Cat Hospital of Portland and say our goodbyes. We will love and mis him always. This is one weet boy that definately left his paw prints on all of our hearts.

I am heartbroken to have found out today that Brother is FIV+. The vet says this is why the wounds on his tail have not healed. He is staying overnite at the vet so they can more accurately assess his condition. My grandmother has taken the news very hard. She burst into tears as soon as the vet told us that he is infected. We have some very difficult days ahead. We will know more tomorrow and be able to make a better informed decission. As it stands now, we are looking at having him "put to sleep" so that he does not suffer. Yes, I know that many cats can live long lives with FIV, but his wounds are not healing, they are infected and he is showing signes of gum disease. The vet says this means that he is getting sick and it will be quite expensive to treat him. We will be having Fluffy tested next, and then our other babies. The only thing I can think of to say to comfort my grandmpther is that he has spent some good time in-0doors not having to worry about the things out-door cats have to worry about and that he will not suffer. this is little comfort. As all of you know, cats touch your heart, even if they are just passing thru. I think that Franz has tought us a lesson about love of family. He will always be remembered by us.


Thank you all

I want to thank all of you that have left treats for me over the last few days. Fluffy always gets so much attention that sometimes I feel left in her shadow. She is a very out going girl while I tend to be more stoic and reserved. It wasn't always that way though. Before the attack that killed my twin I was the out going charmer. Back then I was called Nipper because I would get soooo into being petted that I would give love bites. I will be going to an all cat vet on Monday to have my tail taken care of, thanks to some VERY nice peoople at a local rescue organization taking care of the bill. They are unable to take in me and/or Fluffy but it is wonderful that they will help us out with the medical bills. There is nothing seriously wrong with me you understand, I just have some wounds from that terrible attack that have not yet healed up. My foster people really want me to get better and return to my old self. I can tell that they love me alot, they are always giving me treats and talking to me in a soft voice. I especially like the grandma person. She is a non-smoker. I don't have anything against smokers, my other foster people smoke and are very nice people. I just think that my nose is a little more sensative having been feral. Purrrrrrrrrs and headbutts to all, Franz AKA Brother
