Most of you already know that PeroDaCat and MamaKitty have already been placed (together) in their new home. I was so happy to learn that when we returned from vacation. Pero's previous caregiver (@Catsalady) told M recently that they are very happy in their new home and even have a screened-in front porch so they can watch the birdies and enjoy the fresh air. (They are so lucky - I'd like one of those too.) Of course Catsalady misses them terribly, but she is grateful they have found such a nice home and are adjusting nicely.
Now for possibly even more GREAT news!
@Catsalady told M yesterday that she is investigating a new Assisted Living Facility that will be willing to accept her two remaining cats - Gwim and Abby. @Catsalady will visit the facility on Tuesday, March 10th and will let us know shortly thereafter what her plans will be. I know all of you join me in wishing her well. We hope this new facility will work out for her and that she can keep Gwim and Abby.
The Assisted Living Facility will require proof from a veterinarian that both Gwin and Abby have updated Feline Leukemia and Rabies shots. Catsalady has no means to take the kitties to the Vet nor the funds to do so. @ForeverGinger and M discussed the possibility of using the donations collected in the Transportation Fund for that purpose. Ginger immediately started contacting donors to get that permission, and they all agreed to use the funds for that purpose. Everyone just wants to see those kitties go to a good home - what better home than with their own mama.
M immediately got on the phone and found a veterinarian in Phoenix that has a mobile unit and will go out to visit Abby and Gwim at @Catsalady's house. There would be enough in the fund to cover the shots for both kitties and the cost of the mobile unit visiting the home.
Now we are waiting to see if @Catsalady approves of the new facility before proceeding with plans to have the veterinarian go to their home to give the shots. We will update you when we have more news.
Keep your paws crossed friends because this would be a big WIN for @Catsalady, Gwim and Abby.
