A Three Kitty Rescue Caturday Sunday Plus

Hiya Evfurry Buddy,

Lots of interesting Mewz today... including a scary surprise at the end... be sure and look out fur the scary selfie!!!


Started writing this blog post yesterday morning about 8:33AM CST, on Caturday Art Day. Had to finish today. Yesterday morning, headed out to Leon, Kansas, taking two cats to be boarded at Hickory Hollow Animal Refuge, a no kill ranch. Stayed out there til late in the afternoon, then off to buy cat food at Costco and look after kitties and family.  VERY  IMPORTANT: HHAR doesn't have a current website. (Contact info to a "Michelle" on Wix page found by web searching can not be used to contact HHAR as that manager was dismissed for animal abuse and shooting dogs) They do have a Facebook Page that needs updating. 

Didn't have much sleep Thursday or Friday nights.  Been several hectic days since Molly helped blog on Wednesday. Had a friend contact me Thursday that she needed help getting her two cats to Hickory Hollow asap. 

HHAR Building where new kitties stay
This is the sanctuary mentioned in Blog Post August 24. Working on getting a website up, coverage in social media, and finding ways to raise funds and spread the word about cats and dogs needing homes and need for volunteers. The previous manager Michelle dismissed for animal abuse also blocked anyone from getting into their computer. HHAR needs computer tech help creating a database, a website and sanctuary history - that's where I can help!

Lost Ginger Baby Girl
Wednesday night a sweet docile cat showed up at Silvia's motel with two collars, small baby, ginger girl. Getting beat up by the other stray cats. Had to come get her Thursday late afternoon.
Docile, sweet little ginger girl about 6 months old was wandering around Silvia's motel lost and crying. Searching for her owner and will check for microchip...

Lost Ginger Baby Girl
Praying she is not abandoned. She is staying in my laundry room, for now.  Could use some help figuring out what her name is!!!!

Even with dangerous cheap flea collar, she still has fleas. Will need to get her Revolution ($18.00) which means cats at my house will need to be treated (another $36.00) and Ellie May can not have flea drops at all -  what gave her neurological problems in the first place. Needing $54.00 for flea meds. I will flea comb as many as I can out of the ginger baby's fur.

Ernesto left, Maria Right
Thursday afternoon, a friend contacted me and asked if I could help get Gentle Ernesto and his housemate Maria to Hickory Hollow Animal Refuge. Maria was getting spayed at Augusta Animal Clinic that afternoon and wanted to know if I could take Ernesto for the night and help her take cats to the HHAR Friday, but I have no room.
Ernesto
Long story short, Ernesto and Maria were boarded at Augusta Animal Clinic until Saturday morning. Their mommy had a last minute home care assignment with her job and could not go up their with me. Mommy Sheila used to go to bible studies of a friend of mine who was hit by a car last year on my birthday (Feb 5 2015). Sheila could not keep them in her living situation and Hickory Hollow said they could take them in.


HH is paying for Maria's spay Thursday and Katiez Furry Mewz helped board the kitties at Augusta Animal Clinic until brother and I picked up them up and brought them to the Ranch yesterday. KFM Paid 32.00 boarding Ernesto only. Maria's bills paid for by HHAR.  Would love to be able to pay HHAR back for Maria's spay = 75.00. 


KFM's budget is almost non-existent going into November... Too many kitties needing help at the same time the end of this month, plus extra money went to my front screened porch getting repaired and painted before bad weather sets in so cats have fresh air, especially Angel who sometimes wheezes... and we had 50.00 stolen from funds last Monday before Staff at a clinic where I was at found my billfold (helping Silvia get antibiotics for sinusitis). Silvia has flat tire that needs replaced (40.00), her birthday was on the 27th btw. She had an interview with an RV cleaning company yesterday, work she has done before. Yet they are trying out another worker. If that person doesn't work out, they may give her a call.... Right now there is no money yet for rent. To make a long story short, the 50 dollars stolen was meant for paying motel owner back for vet bill, now need 50.00 to go toward this coming week and selling camera would pay for the rest of the hundred (last sentence corrected Oct 31).

If anyone can help recover funds, please paypal laugh_safely at Yahoo dot com.

Maria
Now for some scary fun - plus photos of Maria and Ernesto chilling out in their boarding room.



Ernesto and Katie Kat...





























OH NOOO WHAT'S THAT???

And what is that scary selfie above???


 YIKES!!!

Oh it's just a bull snake... found out in the grass at Hickory Hollow Ranch. Harmless, save he am mad and wants to make war with broom! Non- poisonous snakes have round pupils.
Poisonous have pupils with slits. Bull snakes can get to seven feet tall

Good thing him am not poisonous since the cats were furry curious...

    1. Thanks Marie and Athena! Hoping to find Ginger Baby's mommy and Sheila hopes to be able to pick up Maria and Ernesto in a few weeks when she finds another place to stay.

      The kids of one of the workers at the ranch saw him and ran to tell Erin their Mom - we ran out of the Barn House and saw the snake. I asked if they had a basket and Erin ran and got that plastic container. I put it over him and waited for the Refuge owner's husband to come. He lets us know it was a bull snake, thank goondess!

  8. This was a very interesting post. We enjoyed it although all of us could do without the snake. Kali and Shoko have never seen a snake. We don't have any up here. Too cold in the winter. That's great with us.

    1. Thanks Jean... we could have done without the snake too! Good thing to know how to tell a bad snake from a good one... when out in the country around here. Glad you don't have to worry about them! -Katie Kat.
