Cutie Pie Yeats is an abandoned stray who was being fed by a caring woman who contacted us to see if we could get him medical help for an abscess behind his ear. Other cats in the neighborhood were always beating up poor Yeats and she wanted to get him off the streets and into a nice home. He is very sweet.
Yeats paid a visit to the Longmont Humane Society's Well Pet Clinic, and received loving care from Dr. DePauw. Thank You so much Dr. DePauw! As soon as he feels better we hope to transfer Yeats to a shelter for adoption.
We have had many sick and injured cats and kittens recently and we are in need of donations to help fund medical care. Please visit our Donate webpage to learn how you can help.
The Story of Fester Cat by Paul Magrs is written from Fester's perspective. He came as a skinny stray, covered in flea bites and missing all but one and a half of his teeth. Paul and his partner Jeremy took this desperate kitty in, but it was Fester who wound up helping Paul and Jeremy. If you are at all homophobic, this may not be the book for you, but if you believe that people's personal lives is their own business and that God hasn't died and left any of us in charge, you will probably love this book as I did. Fester turned Paul and Jeremy's quaint house in Manchester, UK into a true home and he taught them both a lot - about commitment, about flexibility, about learning to appreciate the simply joys of each moment. Fester taught Paul and Jeremy how to sing with his great purring. He also taught them how to deal with hardship, financial problems and relationship stresses. This true story is so warm because Fester, himself, helped Paul write it. You will fall in love with Fester and his cute, black button nose. Not a sad book, but a book about learning to simply trust, as Fester did Paul and Jeremy. During the course of seven years Fester, with his purrs and his unique presence, turned these two young men into the family he and they needed. I'll be honest - you'll need a tissue or two, but this book is an honest look at the lives of two young men seen through the eyes of the cat whom they saved, but who ultimately saved them.
Available on Amazon, Kindle, or in used book stores. As anyone who reads these book reviews knows, this reviewer is partial to British authors. Fester does not disappoint. Go ahead, find this wonderful book and read it. You'll be richer for having done so!
Hope I've provided all the info you need. I have at least four more cat books before I have to start looking for more. I really enjoy writing the book review. Not sure if anyone reads it, but since I love books it is a delight to write about ones I especially love.
Kitten season is here.
A kind woman in Lyons contacted us yesterday looking for help with a tiny baby she found who was left behind after his Mom moved the rest of her litter to a new hiding place. Our foster volunteers are all taking care of homeless cats and kittens so we called Nina from Animal Rescue Connection, Inc. to see if she could help. Nina came over right away to pick up the little one and took him to their bottle feeder Jackie. Jackie says he is eating really well and seems to be thriving.
Thank You so much Nina and Jackie. We're so relieved to know he's in good hands! Kitty Angels.
Thanks to Nancy, Tab, Eric, Carol and Heidi for helping us trap 20, yes 20 !, cats for neuter/spay all in snow, slush, rain and mud. And, at Tab's site, 6 kittens were removed for foster and when old enough, adoption.
Thanks to Northern Colorado Friends of Ferals, Jan and Leslie et al, for providing a wonderful neuter/spay clinic in Ft Collins so that we could get 19 of our 20 neutered and spayed all in the same day.
Thanks to Nancy for transport and thanks Deb T for loaning us her Green Machine once again.
LFFAC adventures, stories and maybe even a cute cat video every now & then.
