Shelter Cat Wednesday, August 22, 2012

GET ME OOOUUUUUTTTTTTTT..........................

That's what little Skunk is saying here. This precious boy is at the shelter in Glen Rose and he is just too cute to be there.  Sweet boy deserves a home of his own. And Glen Rose is just a short drive..............

Shelter Cat Saturday, August 18, 2012

Sometimes Ollie makes a pick that can be a bit tough.

This fellow is in the Sherman shelter which is a gassing shelter and which has a 7 day eu plan.'s Shelter Cat Saturday is a bit pressed for time. And he's a handsome gent. The black and whites are such a striking color combo, and this boy is no exception.

Ollie would REALLY like to see this handsome boy find his forever home. Sherman isn't that far? Don't you feel a road trip coming on? Ollie says he'll love you Furever and Ever if you drop by and take this pretty boy home. :)

Black Cat Appreciation Day.....tomorrow

Ollie wanted to be absolutely, pawsitively for certain I didn't forget about tomorrow. So to make him happy, I'm posting today. :)

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Shelter Cat Saturday, August 11, 2012

Today's SCS is really special. Ollie wants to show the black cats that are available at the Rowlett, TX shelter where I'm doing work with their Facebook page. It's a special day for the shelter because they're having their "Empty The Shelter" event all day today.

Ollie and I both hope that lots of black kitties find their forever homes today!

Shelter Cat Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Ollie didn't want to make a long road trip today for his Shelter Cat Wednesday selection, so we just hopped in the "car" and toodled on down to Killeen.

He found himself a pretty little black and white baby girl there who really needs someone to take her away from it all. Pepper is ready for life outside a shelter. Can you offer her one? It would make Ollie REALLY happy!

Tuesday's Artful Cats, July 31, 2012

See? Told you it would be back. :)

Actually, this is sort of a test drive for TAC's return. It's short. It's sweet. I've dropped one of the shelters I'm helping (I do online stuff so I'm not limited by physical presence stuff like being two places at one time.), so I have a bit of time available.

Surprisingly, there's not much in the way of cat measuring cups/spoons, but here's what I scared up.

Sunday with Ollie, July 29, 2012

This is what Ollie thinks of the time I'm spending on rescue that should be spent on him instead.

(For some reason, he looks horribly scruffy in this photo. I think it's just the lighting.)

SCSs Adopted!

Ollie's mojo is working. :)

I was told a little while ago that little Miss Saphire, today's SCS pick, was adopted at the Carrollton shelter today.

Go Ollie!

Go Saphire!!

Shelter Cat Saturday, July 27, 2012

Ollie has been getting a Tortie "fix" for the last couple of weeks. He loves him some tortitude, and today he's found just a little smidgeon of a girl up in Carrollton, and he thinks he sees a lot of that in her.

10 week old Saphire IS a doll baby. And she needs a savior by 6 pm Tuesday. She's up in the shelter in Carrollton, and that's no place for a little doll to be. Ollie said you need to get over there RIGHT NOW (that's him yelling, not me) and take little Saphire home and if you do it today, the shelter has a special running on kittens....$10

Shelter Cat Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Ollie is taking a serious road trip today....going ALL the way down to Vidor, outside Beaumont.

He saw this gorgeous little girl on Facebook last night, and just fell in Ollie drool all over my monitor!

Vidor Animal Control doesn't appear to have a Petfinder page, but they do have a Facebook Page (Vidor Animal Control), and their phone number is 409-769-8718.

SCS Adopted!

Gorgeous Hampton, Ollie's SCS for last Saturday, was adopted! WOOT!!!! Go Hampton!!

Shelter Cat Saturday, July 21, 2001

Seems like Ollie is hanging out a lot in Collin County. Probably still mooning over Inez and Inga. :)

Regardless, that shelter is FULL to the brim. The cats there are in grave danger and, as you can guess, the black cats are high on the list.

So Ollie feels like he needs to help out. He found Hampton today (and I forgot to post until LATE), and he said, "Now HERE is a handsome black house panther!" (Under his breath he said "Almost as handsome as me" but I didn't let on I heard him.)

Go visit Collin County. Take home a new furry BFF. Take home Hampton. Tell 'em Ollie sent you!''

Collin County Animal Shelter in DIRE Need!

Collin County Animal Shelter is officially out of any space in their cat room. They are in DIRE need of adoptions. And there are many, many wonderful black cats in need of a forever home.

Please...if you're in the Dallas area, plan a trip as soon as possible to adopt one of their wonderful kitties. Please go to their Facebook page to see some of their black beauties and to also see which cats have pledges available to rescues that pull them.

And don't forget the black dogs, too. :)

SCW.....Itty Bitty Kitty Version...

Ollie's going on a road trip. He hates riding in cars, so this could be really interesting, but when he saw this baby boy he KNEW it had to be his next shelter cat pick. And I mean could you ask for anything cuter??? couldn't. And this baby boy needs to go to a really special home that will love and care for him.

Baby boy is in Bastrop and is going to need a forever family really soon. Go meet him. Make him yours!

SCSs Adopted!

Those two gorgeous young ladies from Collin County who were Ollie's choice for the July 7 Shelter Cat Saturday feature were adopted! WOOT!! We're very happy that Inga and Inez have gone into their furever homes!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

SCS Adopted!

Kisses, who was Ollie's pick for SCS on June 16, has gone to her forever home!

Shelter Cat Saturday, July 7, 2012

Ollie sat here and tried to decide whether to pick Inez or Inga for today's Shelter Cat Saturday. Back and forth and back and forth and back.and... well, you get the idea. I finally told him not to play favorites and select them both. After all, it's HIS blog....he can do what he wants and I'm just the typist. :)

Inez and Inga are two very striking young ladies in the Collin County shelter. And two more beautiful girls I've not seen in awhile. I can see why Ollie had a hard time choosing.

And really. Why choose? Adopt them both!

Bad news on hold

Apparently Midnight was moved to the RIP folder too soon.

However, he's got to be tagged by 2:00 today...which is just a minute away. I'll keep an eye on his situation.

The good and the bad....

The good news...

Ollie's "Adopt Me Mojo" helped get kitty Sky out of the shelter in Carrollton. YEAH!!!

The bad news...

But it wasn't enough to get Midnight out of the shelter in Arlington. RIP, beautiful Midnight.

Shelter Cat Saturday, June 23, 2012

Wowser....look at today's Shelter Cat pick. This beautiful boy is at the shelter in Arlington, and he REALLY needs to be in your!

This is what a volunteer on the Friends of Arlington Facebook page has to say:

Midnight is very outgoing and has a wonderful personality, very sweet! Likes to show off to the volunteers and customers. Please don't let him being a black cat deter you away from adopting him, black cats are awesome and midnight is an exceptional cat because of his awesome personality! Come meet him today and see for yourself!

(And Ollie says "YEAH....Black cats are AWESOME!!")

Shelter Cat Sat...errr....Wednesday! Inaugural Edition

Ollie was pestering me about this lovely girl in Carrollton last night. She was on a Code Red list for yesterday, but it looks like she's got a bit more time.

So that gives Ollie the opportunity to harass you people and tell you that SOMEONE really needs to go adopt the lovely Miss Sky from the shelter in Carrollton. She's far too lovely to languish in a shelter...or worse!!

Miss Sky needs a rescue!!!!!!!!

Saturday, June 16, 2012

Shelter Cat Saturday, June 16, 2012

I can tell you right now, Kisses description REALLY appeals to me....she won't steal the TV remote. That means one less person to fend off!

Kisses is down in Georgetown...make a drive. Ollie thinks Kisses is very pretty...and he really likes her name!

Ms. Kisses

Gone Fishin'

Meowmy said I should come in here and let folks know that I'm going fishing for awhile, so the blog is mostly on vacation with me.

Since there are so SOOOOOOOOO many shelter cats, that Shelter Cat Saturday feature is stayin'. I told her I didn't care HOW much time she was spending on rescue THIS needed to, it's rescue, too!

So maybe I'll be blogging again in a few months. Time off may be just what I need.


Ollie is right. I've gotten very involved networking rescue animals and trying to get Animals First Foundation of Texas organized and purposed, and the blog is suffering because of it.

He's also right that Shelter Cat Saturday is rescue oriented and that should stay open. So SCS will be here, and it may be there will be another day added to that feature, too. The requirements will stay the or mostly black cats (including torties) will be featured.

And hopefully after this summer, I can spend time typing stuff up for Ollie. And maybe by then he'll have gotten over his dislike of the flashy thing. :)

Shelter Cat Saturday, June 9, 2012

OIlie and I are taking a little road trip today for his Shelter Cat Saturday feature. Going up to Seagoville where the good folks at the shelter have a cat room FULL of kittens. So many kittens, in fact, that they're waiving the adoption fee on the little darlings through the month of June.

This little doll baby is one of them. Looks like her stray hold won't be up for a couple of days, but she looks like a pistol. Ollie and I bet Miss Bella Donna has a heapin' helpin' of tortitude.

Everyone needs some spice in their life. This little doll would probably fit the bill nicely!

Tuesday's Artful Cats, June 5, 2019

I was looking at at my patio today, and it's decidedly plain and boring. I really need some decorations out there. But I want something that I thought about spinner spinner thingies. So that's today's Artful Cats...wind spinners and whirligigs.

Shelter Cat Saturday, June 2, 2012

Going up to the shelter in Wylie, outside Dallas, for today's Shelter Cat Saturday.

This handsome fellow doesn't have a name that I could find, but he is a good looking boy who I've read is really sweet and affectionate. What more could you want? Ollie said that HE is sweet and affectionate and so my world should be complete.

Don't you think your world could stand a little completion?
