Sunday Six, PBU and Maggie Update

Some of the rooms at the shelter are "open" ones, wherein the cats share one common space. It's great to see them all living in harmony, and sometimes we're even lucky enough to catch a bunch of them in one picture (like this one of the gang in Room 8)! Note: if there were any birds at that window-mounted feeder, you can bet not all the kitties would be sleeping. :)

We also wanted to share that we've been selected to be the "Featured Blog of the Week" at Pet Blogs United (PBU), a really cool blog about, by and for pets and animals, and the people who love them. Please be sure to check them out. And while you're there, you can also read their post about us, especially if you ever wanted to know a little more about us and/or about PAWS, the animal shelter at which we volunteer.

And finally, a quick interim update on Maggie. Thank you all so very much for your friendship, love, purrs and prayers. They (and all of you!) mean so much to us. We are still waiting for the biopsy results, which should come back tomorrow. In the meantime, our Maggie is home and comfortable. She is on an anti-nausea medication, and is eating well and being her normal, sweet self. We will keep you posted. In the meantime, PLEASE keep those purrs and prayers coming...


  1. Great picture! We read your feature on PBU, it was great learning more about you and we loved the posts you chose. We will be purring and praying for sweet Maggie. Sending you our very best thoughts.

  2. I'm still RUMBLEpurring for darling Maggie, I hope she feels better!

  3. congrats on being featured!

    i like the idea of "open rooms" rather than cats being in kennels. if i had a cat sanctuary/shelter of my own (that would be SO cool), i would definitely go with the "open room" approach. :)

    glad to hear that Maggie is doing alright! i hope her health continues to improve.

  4. Wonderful to see all the kitties living harmoniously in one place. Great idea to allow them to adapt to living in forever homes with other pets.

    Purrs keep coming from me to Maggie. Will be back to check on her.

  5. That is a great pic of the kittehs together. And we're glad that Maggie is comfortable. We've got our paws crossed for tomorrow's results.

  6. That sure is a great picture. Love all the kitties getting along and comfy. We sure will go read the post about you on the PBU.
    We certainly are sending tons of purrs and purrayers for Maggie. Tomorrow is our day for Lucky to see what his fate is going to be. So we will think about Maggie too. We sure hope they can do something for her and glad she is acting her normal self. Lucky is feeling better too so that is a good sign for us. Take care and Mom is going out right now and tell the donkeys to get those hooves crossed for Maggie.

  7. We LOVE that pic ~ what a beautiful well equipped room those kitties have, while they are waiting to be re-homed.
    We continue to purr for, and send love to sweet Maggie.
