First, let me thank the lovely people who have sent good wishes and gifts for the cats. It makes my heart swell. I have two winter cat shelters to be assembled and some funds chipping in to buy a sturdy feeding station for the colony. Another friend sent batteries that are literally keeping the lights on – we go through them pretty quickly in the trail cams and flashlights.
Turning 51 will be rather mundane. We scheduled our flu shots at 10 AM and we have to take the #DavisGirls kittens for for a round of fluids and medications for their seemingly intractable GI parasite. And I have to use my birthday only Starbucks reward. Then we’ll wrap up the evening watching my favorite movie When Harry Met Sally.
We were going to go to a fall foliage drive (I can’t bring myself to use peeping yet) and light a fire in the pit, but the rain said “no, no, no” to those plans.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to my birthday wish – cat stuff. Thanks to your generosity we can help cover the intense veterinary expenses of the #DavisGirls kittens who are still pretty sick. We can also purchase at least one Feralvilla feeding station – they are perfect for this and cost about $120 each with shipping.
If you’d like to chip in:
$5 will buy a box of alcohol wipes to keep the colony as clean and sanitized as realistically possible
$10 will buy extra sturdy food dishes that are dishwasher safe and can be sanitized
$25 will buy a 16 lb bag of kitten food (we are feeding six kittens total)
$30 will buy an outdoor elevated pet bed so they can catch some zzz’s without being on the ground
$50 will buy another trail cam to help keep track of comings and goings and seeing if new cats pop in.
$75 buys a prefabricated outdoor cat shelter
$100 buys two months worth of canned cat food for the feral who need calories during the winter
$150 buys a resin 100 gallon deck box to keep supplies safe and out of the weather.
$150 will cover the spays of the three Davis Girls kittens when they are ready
