This is LOVE! From being dumped at the shelter at the age of 12 and set to be euthanized to having a best friend! Puck is truly home! And he and Skyr are inseparable!

Welcome Puck

I would like to introduce you to the newest member of the family,

he is a 12yo Male Russian blue who was surrendered to the east valley Shelter by his owners. He was on the Red List, which means he had 49 hours to get out or he would be euthanized. 

I love Russian Blues and just couldnt stand the thought of him being killed, so he is now a family member.

He has finally settled down and gets along with Blossom and Skye and all of the dogs. the dogs took him a while to get used to. 

He has bad teeth-actually hardly any teeth, but he loves his soft food and he is in a wonderful home with food and loads of comfy beds!

Lots of change...

Mom has been a blogging slacker! She hasnt blogged for forever! But we are still here and as soon as we are settled again- we will get our secy working!

Our lives have really been thrown upside down since Mom started work at the end of July! We had to move out of the condo because the HOA said she had too many dogs! They wanted mom to get rid of one of them. Now don't get us wrong sometimes those dogs get on our nerve, but we would never want mom to get rid of them! We heard mom her mutter "Over my dead effing body!"....So we all moved out of the condo And moved into my mom's brudders house and she started looking for a house!

Mom has found a house for us!! Mom thinks we move in on October 18th or 19th. We have had fun living at our uncles house and spending time with grandpa but we are really looking forward to having a place that is our own again!! Our own windows to look out!!

Brittany the calico needs surgery...she needs our help

Hello all, furmom, penny, here.

I decided to hijack the girls' blog for a post about another girl kitty, Brittany.

I have set up a chip-in to help; Brittany's Chip-in but here is the entire story!

I have set up this chip in for Sherry, who is the owner of 8yo Brittany a spayed calico.

I met Sherry on Friday at the Harbor Animal Shelter. She was sitting talking/crying to the shelter supervisor when i walked in. I initially didn't get involved until I was asked if I knew of any cat rescues that could help Sherry with her cat, Brittany. So i sat and listened...

Sherry has had Brittany since she was a kitten, 8 years. She LOVES this girl and wants to do everything she can for her BUT she is a low income single mom of 2 kids and lives check to check. She is on subsidized living.

I listened to Sherry's story, Brittany was screaming in the bathroom, peeing blood and Sherry knew she was in pain. So she brought her to the Harbor Animal Shelter hoping they could help-they don't do that. So she was going to have the shelter euthanize her because she couldn't afford to take her to her vet, Affordable Animal Clinic in Torrance, California ( )

I couldn't stand hearing this!!! Brittany had to be given a chance!!! So I said I would help. I told her to take Brittany to Affordable and that I would pay for the exam and if she needed anything else-for them to call me.

Sherry took Brittany right to the vet!!! The vet called me about an hour later to tell me what brittany needed. She needed to be admitted, given fluids, bloodwork done, xrays etc..... and I said OK. I had super bowl winnings that were stashed away in a jar for "an emergency" and i felt this was the time to dig into the jar! brittany was going to get care!!

The next day, the vet called me and said Sherry wanted to talk to me. She said the vet had diagnosed Brittany-she had Kidney stones and crystals and needed surgery. They quoted her $1500 for the surgery. Sherry was once again in tears and said there was no way she could pay this and that she was going to take Brittany back to the Harbor Animal Shelter to be PTS because 1) she couldn't afford the euthanasia fee at Affordable ($275) and 2) she CAN NOT pay $1500 for surgery.

I told her to wait-that we could figure something out!!! She said the vet wanted her to have antibiotics but that she only had $25 and the antibiotics were $35. I said get the antibiotics, I'll pay the $10 difference. Get her the medications-it will buy her some time so that all of this can be figured out.

I then posted a status update on Facebook asking for any help. I received so much help! I was given links to a number of organizations that help people with medical expenses for their animals. I sent ALL of this information to Sherry. And told her to get to her friends computer and fill out as many as she could!

I just talked to Sherry today! She filled out 4 online applications for financial assistance, she has heard back from one already-they do not have the funds to help. She is calling a few today, because that is a requirement. But she is still no closer to getting funds for Brittany's surgery.

This is where I stepped in.

I can't imagine having a beloved pet and NOT being able to afford medical care-and the only option being to put your beloved pet to sleep at the local shelter. Absolutely horrifying!!! Everyone deserves the love of an animal!!!

I go to the Harbor Animal Shelter so much and watch these heartless uncaring people come in and dump their animals without a care in the world! It makes me sick! Then I meet a woman who adores her cat but can't afford to help her!!! She deserves to be helped!!

I'm asking that 1500 people donate just $1!!! JUST $1 is all I ask. Please share this with your friends! JUST $1...can you spare a dollar to help Brittany live????

If the $1500 is collected, she will go back to Affordable for the surgery-Sherry really liked the doctor that she saw the second day. I have also contacted Dr Kenneth Dale Johns to see what he might charge for Kidney stone surgery at his vet clinic in Santa Monica, CA (

That about sums it up. Brittany is on antibiotics but we need to raise funds fast so that she isn't in any pain!


Thank you so very much!!!

We have an "interloper"

Mom came into the house yesterday with a carrier that had "someone" in it......we could smell him...but didnt get to meet him.

Mom told us that he is just a foster! He was an owner surrender at the shelter where mommy takes pictures of the animals in need of new homes. And his picture went all around and a super nice cat lady in colorado wanted to adopt him. So mommy went down to "adopt" him (adoption fees for adult cats right now is only $9)...and she brought him home.

He's living in our human brudders we can smell him thru the door but thats it.

Mom took him to our vet today for his free shelter exam. he's healthy and his FeLV/FIV test is negative, so mom says if we are fostering him for a longer period we might get to meet him face to face.  We met him briefly, while he was in his crate, then he went back into his room.

I (Blossom) hissed at him while he was in his crate and he hissed back just once...but that was all. Mom put him back into his room and now we dont care!!

We think he's ok...

Parker of Perfectly Parker went to the rainbow bridge this morning. She had been sick and she told her rents that it was time.

We know that they had a wonderful evening last nite.

We will miss you parker, and even though our slacker secretary didnt let us visit you a lot recently, we always thought about you!!

Our brudders, Kodak, 3 Perf and Winton, are all at the bridge......they will guide you and help you along!

Rest in Peace sweet will be missed but never forgotten!

Hello's been awhile, I've been a bit of a slacker secretary, but since I am finished with my season of Glee, I'm hoping to update the girls' blog a little bit more frequently!! I did want to share something with everyone, if there are still people that read this! Before my sweet 3 perf went to the rainbow Bridge because of horrible Cancer, he starred in a short film called "Mrs henderson's cat"...yes he was Mrs Henderson's cat!!! When the director, Will (who actually works with me) asked if my orange tabby, 3 perf, could come and film for a few hours at his house, I said why not...but I told him, he can be quite a pill and very unpredictable so i have no idea how he might do... Wills aid no problem, that i was the only person he knew who had an orange tabby. So Perfy and I went to Wills house and perfy made his acing debut!!! I just want everyone to know that my perfy was absolutely wonderful!! He was great, acted great and wasnt a pill!!! Knowing that he was sick and that I had limited time with him, made this such a fun moment!! Yes I was a stage mom!!! The film is finished and will be coming out soon. They just need to complete some post productions items and then i will get to see my boy on the screen. here is the link to the website! If you can donate to help get the short film finished, please donate. Thanks so much!!
