Blog 01/08/18 to 01/14/18

Seeking someone to take over Barn Cats, Inc.:  I would like to officially retire as Executive Director in 2019.  I can retain the fundraising pieces but would like to stop the relocations, equipment pickups, phone calls, and emails…the day-to-day stuff.  I will be available for consultation.  If interested call or email Barn Cats…972-315-2875

Our Cats after Release
Calls/Emails:   Gloria Now Inside in Leonard
BMG (Bitch/Moan/Groan):  Call on the Holiday Weekend
OMG (Oh My God):  Petey’s First Owner in DeSoto

Relocations:   I placed 3 this week.  All will have heaters or heat lamps with them plus our double winter hidey boxes, rugs and blankets to cover the cages.      
3          Adoption Group (Amy, Thomas, Toulouse)

Our Cats after Release:   
1.     Parker:  Bella and Ringa went to this barn in Parker where the husband is an animal surgeon.  They have not been seen but the food is disappearing and the litter box is being used.  They have burrowed under the hay – I’ll bet.           
2.     Paradise:  WW, Toyota, Alex, and Duke went to this barn home.  Alex and Duke are hanging around but WW and Toyota have gone next door.  GO FIGURE!    
Calls/Emails:  Gloria Now Inside in Leonard
The husband went out to walk their dog and found Gloria curled up in a chair on the front porch.  SO – he let her inside.  She like the dog and the other inside cat…so…ALL IS WELL IN LEONARD!  Two other inside cats were older and have passed away.  The other cat likes her and everyone is getting along great.  YES! 
BMG:   Call on the Holiday Weekend
A lady had a cat for several months.  She decided to take it to an adoption group.  The cat did not act well there.  They recommended Barn Cats so she called.  It was Sunday afternoon.  The cat has a rabies shot and that is all.  The husband said “Don’t bring that cat back here!”  She was at a loss but I cannot help her.  It had not been sterilized, or tested, or had a FVRCP shot AND it is Sunday of a holiday weekend.  I don’t know what she did…???  BUMMER for the cat!    

OMG:  Petey’s First Owner in DeSoto
Petey is the female cat that started out in DeSoto, then went to Bartonville, then Argyle and now is back here after a check of the microchip in Flower Mound.  I first put her in DeSoto in 2012.  I featured her in our current fundraising letter “An Amazing Story”.  The DeSoto barn owner called to say how glad he was to see that Petey is still OK.  She is now about 10 years old and I am not going to put her out again.  She will finish out her life here at Barn Cats.  WAY TO GO, PETEY!
