CATS ON TUESDAY
This time I have a rather sad story to tell, fortunately with a very happy end. My friend Ilona walking through the woods was approached by a man with a dog running after a couple who had just left a cage with two white cats on the path in the woods.
He couldn't take the cats because of the dogs, so Ilona took the cage and then they both scolded with the people. Unfortunately they didn't think of calling the police. Ilona carried the cage with the two cats home and raked her brain to find a solution for them.
She couldn't keep them, because she has already a cat and she had not enough room for 3 cats. She didn't want to separate them either because they were cuddled together and it was obvious that they had been together ever since. She didn't want to take them to an animal shelter either, and tried to find them a home. She called me, I told her I will help to find somebody. She called her sister and her son, but both couldn't take them either. Finally her neighbor told her that in her street was a real "cat lady" living.
She walked over and came back with the lady who wanted to see them.
As they found out later these are two boys, around 7 months old and recently spayed, not more then two weeks ! This one looks like Arthur and has also yellow eyes. I think he is now called Max.
The other one same size has blue eyes. They both looked very healthy and well looked after. The cat lady without hesitation took them home, and the same evening her husband went with them to the vet. That's why they knew how old they were and in which health. She had already rescued 7 cats and with these two now she has 9. The one with the blue eyes is now called Snoopy.
It's still a mistery why these cats had been abandonned !
The whole house is adapted to make cats happy ! A huge cat tree sits in the living room and little Max looked at me. After one day, they already felt home. The cat lady was so adorable and let me take pictures, offered coffee and showed us around.

First sitting on the window sill (in the background you can see an enclosure like in a zoo, for the cats when it is warm outside)
and then hiding under the table
This cat is not Arthur either, but she had already a grown up white cat as friendly as Arthur !
and another one on the oven. Apparently the lady and her husband's hobby are cats and everything in the house is for cats. We were so happy for them Ilona and I, that they had found such a good home, almost a cat paradise !
At home I had again troubles with my Arthur. He didn't eat again. I tried to find out what he could have eaten, but saw really nothing. Suddenly I remembered that I had put Frontline on his neck, against flees. Maybe it was that ? Because he didn't eat anymore last time too. I asked the vet and she said that it is possible that he got it in his mouth by leaking his collar.
So we went to the vet and he got a shot again. As last time he refused to get out of his cage and she had to give him the shot through the grids.
In the car I let him free, he loves to ride !
and the next morning he ate like a horse again !
I needed a picture with perls and asked Pookie and Rosie to model. Here is the result !
