Rainbow Bridge

Just wanted to update everyone on my ol gal Razzie. I let her go to the rainbow bridge yesterday as her kidneys were not doing so hot. She lived a wonderful two years here with us and now she's free to go play all day in the fields with my other doggies :)

Gonna miss that ol gal no matter how cranky she was.

Purrfect Pals vs a 100 foot Tree

Yup. those are my picts and that's my work. Bad times.
The tree fell on the morning of our largest fund raiser of the year, falling on the owner's bedroom and on our FIV sanctuary. Needless to say we need a new roof now.

Please welcome.....

Please welcome the newest addition to the family, Miss Hazy.. aka Hazard.. and not as in Dukes of Hazard, as in "a hazard to your health." She was a 3 week old kitten that I brought home from work for 1 night to bottle feed and Emmy the cat hating cat decided that she liked her so we said Ok lil one you can stay. She's now about 8 1/2 weeks old, has been spayed, chipped and whatnot and is new best friends with Jasmine and Emmy.

Ok so this weekend was mine and Jasmine's first ever Agility compitition. We entered into Novice Jumpers with weaves(NJWW) and Novice Standard (NS) both days, so 4 total runs. Well the first class NJWW Jasmine of course ran around like a goof ball just as expected she did finish the course but not after running to see her aunti Tiffany and taking a few goes at the weave polls. An obvious NQ.
The second run was much better. She ran the entire course properly with the exception of the weaves which she entered inccorrectly but managed to finish with a score of 90 and 1st PLACE!!! We later found out that the weaves were set at 20 inches not the 22 and 24 inches that we practice at.
The second day we did AWESOME! We did both NJWW and NS finishing respectivly with 100pts and 90pts, both being 1st place :) I laughed when I looked at the time she did the jumpers course at 31.4 seconds for a 105yrd course, she was FLYING. She was still bookin it on the Standard course doing it in 56.2 seconds for a 149yrds with the 5 second down included.
Watch out agility crew here we come!
I'll post pictures and video as soon as I get them from my sister.

Purrfect Pals.. And more pictures

Ok so some of you know that I work at a no kill cat shelter called Purrfect Pals and if you didn't you know now. Anyway I thought I would share with everyone the cute adorable sweet spoiled kittens that live at the shelter. Yes I said live. They are not up for adoption and unfortunately will live the rest of their short life in a room with 20 other cats until they cross the rainbow bridge. These cute adorable sweet kittens are Feline Leukemia positive. They have all been tested multiple times to make sure that the readings were not false. These kittens were given a horrible disease that will rob them of their life at a young age. If we are lucky they'll make it to 1 year, we're amazed if they make it to 2 years and if they make it to 2 years the chances are they will live until they are seniors spending the rest of their lives in the shelter. But making it to 2 isn't their only hurdle. Being as they have a lowered immune system their system will be subject to various upper respiritory infections(URI), eye infections, anemia etc but we will take care of them and treat them to the best of our abilities. These diseases are nothing that anyone can prevent as approximently 90% of the healthy population of cats have some type of URI that is just dorment in them and only shows signs in imune deficiant or stressed cats.

Now don't get me wrong it's not a horrible place to live, they have their own room, multiple cat trees, ourdoor play areas ( in the spring/summer) visitors on a daily basis, room service :) etc, but I'm just disgusted that this is a completly preventable disease and that more people aren't vaccinating against it. We've taken in 3 seperate litters of kittens and 3 adult cats this year alone that have all tested FELV (leukemia) positive. Now that just sucks. This could all be prevented by a simple vaccine.

I guess the one good thing about this is that these adorable kittens don't know what I know and never will. Thankfully they just get to live their lives, however short they may be, as spoiled rotten little kittens who get the joy of having us bend over backwards to make them as happy as they can be.

For more information please visit....

and think about sponsoring on of these adorable kids.

Mis Mellow (black/white- adult FELV +)

Ivy aka Mamma ( Black/white Tux--1 1/2 years old- was abandoned at a petstore with her kitten who also tested FELV +)
Now if I could just figure out how to get the stupid text to wrap around the pictures I'd be super happy! but I'm tired and just don't want to deal with it. Another job put off.

New Camera. Picts Galore!

Well I've been a bad blogger. Really though I've had a very hectic life lately between work, family, my grandmother passing and everything else you can possibly think of throwing into the mix. Life is finally starting to settle down so I might as well share some of the less insane and more enjoyable parts of life.
Jasmine is doing WONDERFUL in agility. She has finally figured out the weaves , even though she still tells me the entire time how annoying the stupid weaves are, and is doing them on both sides now. Her first match should be in June, we'll be doing novice and hopefully she won't want to visit the judges the entire time. Kinda hard sometimes to keep her on track when there are people who just might have a cookie in their pocket, we're gonna have to break her of that.

The hubby bought me a new camera as our old one just can't keep up with the rocket dog. She's so dang fast that no matter what the setting on it you just get a blur. Our new camera (Nikon d-200) is wonderful although there are a TON of buttons to learn about. I'm slowly getting it down and have been practicing with the old dog, mainly cause she doesn't move at the speed of light and she's very photogenic although I'd love to get a picture where her tongue is actually in her mouth ;P Anyway life goes on as usual, wonderful kitten season has arrived and we are starting to get bombarded with kittens again :) I'll have to post some pictures of the lil monsters soon as we are getting some wonderfully cute babies in.

Enjoy the picts ;P

Razzie (12yr old Pemi. Look at that movement, not bad for the old girl )

Random scenery from the property.

I'll have to add some more later. I have some really nice ones of Razzie swimming, well wadeing in the water and I'm going to try to get some action shots of Jasmine but let's see how well that works little speed demon.
