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 love....got 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.

Pretty Tortie Baby

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!''

Handsome Hampton

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??? Nah...you 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!

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!
