Our Cats after Release:    (don’t have any updates)

Calls/Emails:  Oklahoma Scheduled for September 7th - UPDATE
Geez – this has been complicated.  Not because of the cats but because of dealing with everyone’s schedules AND barn construction.  This is a great place and will be as safe as possible for these 7 cats….4 from PCFCC and 3 from Garland.  The caging is already there, I just need to set it up.  I will go about 10:30 on that Saturday, set up the equipment, and the cats coming at noon.  I will be glad to get this off the schedule!!!!!  UPDATE:  Still holding on for this one.   Should be going out next weekend.  UPDATE:  Cats delivered on Saturday.  Such beautiful property with the tack room air conditioned and heated.  Can’t ask for more than that.     

OMG:  Still Have some Furniture to Place
A consignment store has offered to take 2 pieces of furniture that are left.  Need to get those taken up there this week….running out of time to the move which is the 16th.     

BMG:   Phone Problems
When I move the 972-315-2875 phone number will no longer be active.  I cannot transfer that number to Dallas.   There will be a message that says “This number no longer active. Call 972-742-5238 for assistance.”  The message will be out there for 6 months.  We are also changing the website.  Cannot control this….BUMMER!     
    
TRANSITION UPDATE:   The caging delivered to Hickory Creek will be my last relocation.  All the caging will now be picked up by the folks that brought the cats to those locations.  I can help with paperwork and appointments but not with caging delivery, etc.   The end of an era…
