From a friend!

There is a pair of kitties in Lexington that needs your help. Their current caretaker is very allergic to them - she is literally risking her life, and she's finally hit the point where she cannot do it any more. They were dumped on her, and she has done her best by them. The kitties are a 2.5 year old brother and sister pair. They have never been separated, so if it's at all possible, they should be adopted together.

She can only keep them through Wed or Thurs, and after that, they go to the shelter. Anyone interested can reach me at kalitheblaze@gmail.com, and I will relay to her. She really doesn't want to take them to the shelter if she can find a good home for them. And of course, she wants to meet whoever is interested in the kitties if possible.

Here's her message about them:

Basic information: i'm in Lexington Kentucky and willing to drive up to 100 miles (this is an average road trip distance for me). The cats are around 2.5 years old, up to date on shots until April, are microchipped, and are brother/sister and really should stay together if humanly possible, they've never been separated. They would come with any food/litter i have left, cat bed, cat toys, cat brush, carriers, and a small cat perch (they have 6 foot cat trees but i can't fit those in my car, even dismantled). They do not bite or scratch people, and i've trained them not to claw my furniture (though the bottom of the couch is another matter, i'm not sure why they feel the need to rip the bottom out).

The brown one is brother cat, his name (and he occasionally responds to it) is Wunjo. He's a bit rambunctious and while he likes attention sometimes he gets the "too cool for you" attitude when it comes to being petted. He also thinks he's too cool to be brushed even though he gets mats without it. His favorite toy is those yellow rubber LiveStrong bands (or similar ones).





sister cat is the grey one, she refuses to respond to a name but she's known as Radha. Very shy and skittish with new people but can't get enough attention from people she knows. She purrs so loudly and will rub up against people so hard she falls over. Also needs regular brushing, most of the cat hair tumbleweeds in the house come from her. She isn't big on many cat toys, she mostly just wants to be petted.

 

There you have it!

Please reblog/repost!

Sounds like a really lovely Beta/Gamma pair.  They will make someone fine housemates.  Please help get the word out!

Hey, all!

Author, editor, gamer, awesome person, and friend Jennifer Brozek's kitteh Mena is having the first part of a two-stage ear surgery to correct a painful congenital defect, and it is not covered by kitteh insurance.

They're having a book sale at Apocalypse Ink Productions to help offset costs, so go look and see if anything appeals to you.

Especially recommended, IMO, is Caller Unknown.

“Please, Karen. Lamiel will die tonight if you don’t help her.”

Kendrick is a city alive in more ways than one. Its borders contain a hidden world composed of secret societies, the supernatural, the lost, and the unexplained. It is the world that Karen, a 911 operator, is thrust into.  It begins with a phone call. A stranger begs Karen to save a young woman’s life, opening Karen’s eyes to the world beneath the surface of the city she thought she knew. People are dying. Artifacts are being stolen. The streets are filled with rumors of a city-destroying ritual.  Karen is determined to figure out what is really going on and protect her city, whatever the cost…

Caller Unknown: Book One of the Karen Wilson Chronicles, is the first of four collections following the trials of Karen Wilson as she delves into the secret side of Kendrick. With enemies on all sides, unknown allies, and a baby gargoyle, what she finds will change her life forever.
 
There is also a donation button on the Apocalypse Ink site, if you just feel like throwing a little money their way.

Kitteh compels you wif cuteness.



GUYS, DAT FAAAAAACE.

Via [livejournal.com profile] nonnycat[personal profile] elialshadowpine :

Buddy is a service kitty for Paul, a disabled person who is still waiting for the final decision of his disability hearing. Previous update. Full story, long version. Buddy's had problems with the litter box, and with serious anxiety/panic attacks lately, and was diagnosed with a UTI.

Good news: People have been super-generous, and that's awesome! Major steps have been made and things are going really well. Buddy is doing better now that he's got anxiety meds, and is learning to get along with the litter box again! He and his sister, Girlie, were both taken to the vet and wormed. Yay! Buddy's UTI appears to be improving, too! LOOK AT WHAT YOU PEOPLE DID! It's awesome!

Meh news: Between the vet visits, tests, worming for two cats, meds, and trying different kinds of litter/boxes to see what makes Buddy feel safe, funds are depleted. Buddy needs a follow-up with the vet to check on the UTI. If his litter issues are to be resolved, they gotta be sure they found the source, which means being sure they got the UTI fixed! That appointment will be $50, plus whatever they'll charge for the tests that need to be done.

How you can help: Reposting this, and linking it around, would be great. Also, donations. Paul's PayPal is p.a.pierce@gmail.com. This is a case where just a little money can make a big difference in the quality of life for a disabled dude and his loyal service kitty.

An update on Buddy the cat.

(You will remember him from here.)

Thanks to y'all being awesome, Paul has been able to take his service kitty Buddy to a vet to get his anxiety treated. However, the vet found other issues. Buddy has a UTI that is being treated, but he also has tapeworms -- which means his sister Rowan needs to get treated too. It also means that Buddy will need future visits to ensure the UTI is fully gone. Paul is in the process of applying for disability and has effectively $197/mo to live on. If anyone is able to chip in a buck or five or ten, anything helps. His PayPal is p.a.pierce@gmail.com. Please boost the signal if you can! Thank you all! Every little bit helps. <3

We got him to the vet!  He's got meds!  He had a UTI that will shortly improve!  So, good news!

But jiminy criminy.  $197 a month.  People shouldn't have to suffer because our country is fucked up re: disability and medical care.  People's PETS shouldn't have to suffer, either.  We so often love them more than we love ourselves, and we need them in ways that medical care simply cannot fulfill.

Kick a little into the kitty for the kitties, and let's get that little booger and his sister wormed!

Hay! So, Tamora Pierce, aka [livejournal.com profile] tammypierce, has a kitty who needs a home. An only-cat-home home.

Her name is Theodore, she's white with yellow eyes, a shorthair, fixed, four-year-old cat in excellent health. She's wonderful around people. She's a very sweet cat. But she's having behavior problems that best efforts aren't helping, and at this point the best thing to do is to find her somewhere she can be happy!



That's the girl!

Surely we can get a signal boost for an awesome author and a lovely kitty?

I really cannot say how pitiful this is, but today, we have a kitty who needs a doctor visit and meds for . . . panic attacks.

I seriously cannot even. Because I have them, and I know how awful they are. But I know WHAT they are when they are happening. Cats do not have the same level of self-understanding.

So, go here and read this: CATSIGNAL

And maybe consider kicking five or ten bucks their way.



This is Ash, better known as Buddy, being held by [livejournal.com profile] nonny. Buddy is an anxious cat who has panic attacks. One of his triggers is the litter box. He can't use them. Therefore, he urinates and defecates elsewhere. This is creating problems, as can be expected, in his person's living situation. His person, Paul, lives on $200 a month in an apartment with two other people. Buddy is Paul's service animal; he's done things like bring Paul his bag of medication. Buddy is also tightly bonded to his sister, Girlie, and they cannot be separated. Paul can't afford to take Buddy to a vet, get him diagnosed as anxious, and started on medication to try to work on the litterbox issue without help. Because of his income, he doesn't qualify for Care Credit, and most vets don't do payment plans. If you can donate, Paul's PayPal account is p.a.pierce@gmail.com. If you want more information on the situation, Nonny has a post about it.


It's pretty bad, folks. His owner is in the same boat as me: disabled, not yet approved for disability. It could be months before he has the money to do this, and his roommates are understandably getting really really impatient with the situation. Buddy doesn't have a whole lot of time.

More, Buddy is a service animal. He's just . . . having a really hard time, himself.

This is a case where we really don't have to raise butt-tons of money to do a good thing. Five or ten dollars will make a huge difference. Please go and see if you can help out a little.

Boosting the signal would be much appreciated. Thank you. Y'all do a LOT of good, you help out a LOT of kitties, and have made MANY happy endings happen. Let's give Buddy a chance. He's a a good cat going through a really rough time. He deserves the same love and consideration we would give any family member in the same boat.

Hey, folks! We need to find a home for TinTin. We've seen her here before. Ashbet took her in back in November, when her owners had to leave a bad domestic situation, and they couldn't take her with them. The home Ashbet was going to place her in fell through, and now we need to find another!

And we really do need to find her a home, because she's doing poorly with the other cat in the household. They don't get along. She's a lovely cat otherwise. She just needs to be an only cat. She would do fine with dogs, just not other kitties.

TinTin is in Dallas, Texas, but travel elsewhere can probably be arranged.



Advertising.

Nice things about her:

She is VERY affectionate!

She is six years old. That is not old, but it's well out of kittenhood, which is a plus. Here is why adopting an older cat kicks all kinds of ass. In short, they make fantastic companions and are not annoying, like kittens, which are cute but have no brains at all.

TinTin wasn't re-homed for behavior problems, or treated badly. She's a good cat! She just doesn't get on with other cats. Hey, some of us humans don't get on with other humans. Luckily, introverted humans and introverted people get along with each other just fine!

She's a Maine Coon type, and they are wonderful cats. OMG, you have not been snuggled until you have had Maine Coon snuggles! She weighs 15 1/2 pounds. For anyone who needs a perfectly snuggle-sized kitty, this is good news! It is a lovely size for cuddles, just lovely, as Smooch can tell you.

I do not know this for sure, but after 25 cats I can guess: she's probably really quiet. Maine Coons are not noisy animals. They have tiny little voices.

She's been microchipped, and the info can be transferred to you. That's, what, sixty to a hundred bucks, plus the exam? Comes free!

She's had her shots. Again, awesome and free!

Clean bill of health and complete vet records! She's been very well cared for.

No fleas.

She likes being brushed -- wow -- but Maine Coons don't NEED brushing every day like other longhairs. So you can enjoy her silky low-maintenance coat. She will let you pet it all you want.

She LIKES not having other cats around! She'd be perfect for someone who wants only one cat, but doesn't want to make a more extroverted cat lonely. She loves humans, and loving on humans, and will be quite happy with humans. And food.

So, please signal boost for me? You never know who is reading you. Could be someone looking for a smoky-furred, yellow eyed, sugar-sweet young lady in good health and with many years of snuggling and happy-paws ahead of her? Because she would love to be your special friend forever and ever.

TUMBLR LINK! Reblarg that to your heart's content.

Drop Box


Wall of text crits you for 4d10 bashing damage:

Nina is an adorable female tuxedo stray who walked up to me on January 19th. She had no collar, no chip, and was very skinny. I took her in and posted fliers, but no one has responded. Her spay and basic shots were done by a rescue clinic, and on January 24th I took her in to my regular vet for FeLV/FIV testing.

Nina is FIV positive.

Unfortunately, I have a very small apartment and another cat already - I can't keep the two cats separated enough, and Nina can't live in my bathroom forever. She'll be able to live with dogs, but unless the other cats are also FIV positive or you have a lot of space she'll have to be the only feline in the house. She still growls at my resident cat, so I'm not sure how well she'd tolerate a feline housemate, honestly. She'll need regular vet visits and to absolutely be an indoor-only cat, but with loving care there's no reason she shouldn't live a mostly healthy normal lifespan.

Nina's a little over five pounds right now, a long and leggy oriental body type with very serious green/gold eyes. The clinic estimated her age between six months and a year based on her teeth. She's spayed, has had a flea treatment and wormer, and the below vaccinations:

Rabies
Panleukopenia
Rhinotrachetitis
Calcivirus
Chlamydia

FeLV (feline leukemia) vaccination was not recommended by the vet.

I'm planning to have her microchipped before she goes on to a home. She's so housebroken she'll walk over to the litter box to vomit (she's stopped throwing up, thankfully). I gave her a quick flea bath with dishsoap, flip checked her to see if I had a boy or girl, and examined her paws to see if she had all her claws without any biting or scratching. She'll yowl, growl, and maybe hiss, but she won't lash out. She loves snuggling, kneads gently without claws, purrs easily, and is a lapcat. She loves drinking out of the sink, uses a scratcher, and free feeds.

I'm in Dallas-Fort Worth (north Texas), but I'm willing to drive or arrange a relay a fair distance to get this little girl a good home.

Thank you in advance for everyone who passes this on.


At least go look at the pictures! She is an amazingly pretty cat! Black as can be with a little white, and built like a Siamese.

Please pass the word along!
