Update on Phannie

Hi Pals,

Mom has been meaning to provide an update on Phannie and her new home with Leigh's best friend Beth in Oregon. So here it is...
Phannie May 2017
Phannie is doing great in her new home! She has been there for a little over 2 months now. She has really adjusted well to her new surroundings. She loves to explore and run up & down the stairs. And of course what cat doesn't like to explore a window?  (Sorry the pics are a little fuzzy! Neither mom nor Beth are skilled photographers!)

The first night Phannie was in her new home she slept and snuggled with mom. (Mom stayed one night at Beth's house before heading back home.) It's not that she didn't like her new family, she just didn't know them. But as soon as mom left to head back home, Phannie became a snuggle bug with Beth! She sleeps at night with Beth which makes Beth so happy! I think mom's a little jealous as she kind of fell head over heels for Phannie on the journey to OR and how could she not? Phannie is so dang cute! At any rate, Beth is thrilled that Phannie has adjusted so well to her, her home and her kids. They already adore her and spoil her! Um Beth, maybe skip the ice cream next time? Kitty's might like ice cream but it's not too good on our tummies! I might know a thing or 2 about that as I tasted some of mom's ice cream over the years too!

Phannie about to dive in to ice cream!

Mom might be a little guilty of spoiling Phannie too. A few care packages with food and toys have made their way to OR. Mom says they are from Mia and Mosby but I know better. Mom is spoiling Phannie like she spoiled me & Cosmo and now Mia & Mosby. Us kitties know how to pull those heart strings so we get extra treats and toys! Way to go Phannie! Sounds like you're getting spoiled in your new home and from afar!

One of the care packages for Phannie. She's found a toy she wants to play with!

Said toy that Phannie dug out of the box.

Mom is certain her friend Leigh is smiling from Heaven and happy that Phannie is being so well taken care of by her lifelong friend Beth!

Oh ... and mom learned Phannie's Birthday is 4/27/17. It was written on a white board in Leigh's moms house by Leigh. It's where they kept track of all the fur kids birthdays. Mom got to see the board when talking with Leigh's brother at the house a few weeks ago. Now Beth knows when to celebrate Phannies' Birthday! Mom will continue to spoil Phannie I am sure and likely won't forget her Birthday either!

Update on Nermie....

Sadly, Nermie has not been found. Mom says that Nermie had been an outdoor cat prior to becoming part of Leigh's family. The neighbors and Leigh's brother continue to keep a look out for Nermie but she has not been spotted in months. Purr-ayers that she is safe and thriving as an outdoor kitty. Some kitty's do well as outdoor kitty's and we hope that is the case for Nermie.


Take care pals!

A new forever home

Hi pals,

Phannie has made the journey to her new forever home! Thank you to everyone who helped make this trip possible! Mom is so happy she was able to provide one last gift for her dear friend Leigh. She misses her friend but knows this final gift likely had her friend smiling from heaven! Here is a pic of Leigh with Phannie. She adored her!

Leigh with Phannie - July 2017

Beth has already fallen in love with Phannie! She has adjusted wonderfully to Beth’s home in Oregon and to her kids.

The first thing she did when let out of the carrier at Beth's home is look for her food! Mom put it out on the floor since she wasn't sure where her food bowl would be kept for her.

Mom said Phannie traveled like a champ! She didn’t commit any of the 3 Ps. No pee, poop or puke in the car! She would meow for a little bit when first in the car until settling down for a nap. She was pretty good in the hotel room too. Although she did meow some, she enjoyed being out of the car for a bit.

Mom let her out of her carrier while at rest stops. Here it looks like she is checking out what's on the dash but actually she is trying to get to her treats!

Quick break in Utah. Mom kept Phannie in the carrier but she enjoyed the fresh air and seeing the birds and animals along the way.

Here's a few pics from each day in the hotels mom and Phannie stayed in along the way. She enjoyed running around and playing after long days in the car!

It is with a heavy heart that we must say that Nermie didn’t make the trip to Oregon. Mom learned a few days before she was scheduled to pick up the cats that Nermie had actually been missing from her friend Leigh’s house. The cats weren’t being checked on as often as mom was told they were. This breaks mom’s heart. Mom spent time over at Leigh’s looking for Nermie before starting the journey to OR and will continue to look for Nermie. Others in the neighborhood will continue to look for her as well. Please say positive thoughts for Nermie that she is found safe.

Thanks pals!

Update on Transport of kitties to new forever home

Hi pals!

Wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciate your support with helping mom transport kitties to Oregon! I also wanted to provide an update:

Mom and friend's bestie now have a plan in place. Mom will load up the kitties and head out of KC on May 23 with the goal to arrive safely in Oregon on May 25. Mom is so humbled to be able to do one last thing for her dear friend Leigh. She loved her fur kids very much and mom is so happy she is going to be able to help get them to their new forever home.

Any help whether it be financial or positive thoughts/prayers for a safe trip are appreciated. The GoFundMe is here if you wish to donate some green papers. They are about 1/3 to goal. Any amount no matter how small is a huge help.

Thank you pals!

Transport help

Hi Pals,

Can I ask for help with transporting mom's friends' cats to Oregon? They (mom and friends' bestie) have tried for nearly 4 months without success to find a loving home for these kitties.


You might remember mom posting a little while back ("Saying Goodbye is Never Easy") about losing a very dear friend on Christmas Eve. Her friend Leigh struggled with ptsd and depression. Her death was ruled accidental overdose. Her fur babies meant the world to her and mom knows her friend wouldn't want her fur babies to be left alone. Leigh had 2 doggies and 2 kitties. The doggies were taken in by a life-long friend immediately. While there has been interest in fostering the 2 kitties, no one has expressed interest in keeping them as their forever kitties. Mom can't take them because Mia and Mosby are declawed (mom adopted them that way, she didn't declaw them). Leigh's kitties are not declawed. Plus mom lives in an apt and with 2 cats already, she is at her limit for pets allowed in the apt. Mom would take them if she could!!!

Leigh's bestie and life long friend from grade school lives in Oregon and would like to bring the kitties in to her home. This would be their forever home. We need help getting them there! That's where I need your help pals! Mom and Leigh's bestie have discussed different options and think that having mom drive the kitties to Oregon would be best. But that's expensive. Bestie set up a GoFundMe to try to help with cost. Can my pals donate some green papers to help get these kitties to Oregon? Even a few green papers will be a big help! The link is here:  https://www.gofundme.com/5i8p4ew.

Thank you for your consideration!

Take care pals!

Saying goodbye is never easy

Mom has the sads. Her closest friend lost her battle against depression on Christmas Eve and today is the visitation. Mom's not ready to say goodbye but she knows it's time to. Her friend was a huge animal lover and even watched us kitties occasionally when mom needed someone to. Here's her friend with Mia when Mia spent some time over at Leigh's while I recovered after my thyroid treatment. Mia is shy around people so this was a cool moment to see.

I remember Leigh visiting often when it was just me and mom at home then when Mia joined the clan. Leigh even had a hand in mom adopting Mosby after I went OTRB. Leigh rescued several kitties over the years even though she had doggies at home too. Mom's gonna miss her friend but knows she is now at peace and reunited with her parents and brother who passed before her along with all her fur kids that have gone OTRB.

Please think positive thoughts for Leigh's family and friends as they say goodbye to her today.

Thanks pals!
