If you are a loyal reader you are likely aware that a friend and I run a Non-Profit Rescue Foundation, and since today is World Spay Day I thought I would talk a little more about it! Just over 6 months ago it all began when two strangers met over a box of kittens. Found in a dumpster with their eyes barely opened and covered in spoiled milk, I found a life long friendship in a stranger who was willing to help save these babies! After a few weeks of working together, bottle feedings, and sickness we found out we had so many hopes and dreams in common and decided that rescue would be a passion we could work together. In the 6 months since these 5 little blessings came along we have saved 71 cats and kittens. Today on World Spay Day we have 2 females getting spayed and 3 males getting neutered. In 6 months we have been able to spay or neuter over 30 cats and kittens! From not only our own pockets but from the generous donations of others. We currently have fosters for the first time and it is such a blessing :) most are people who adopted from us early on and love our mission enough to open their doors to a baby. We do keep all of our sick babies, tube fed babies and young unvaccinated babies in our personal homes though. And I have to tell you between two homes right now we have 23 cats and kittens!(not counting personal animals). This blog will continue to talk about family, and quite frankly this Foundation is part of my family. I hope you enjoy getting to watch our babies learn and grow.

She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH! It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected. Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a
